Wonder Woman Wednesday

Wonder Woman Wednesday (168)

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Any hardcore Wonder Woman comic book fan should be familiar with the name George Perez. Aside from her creators, Dr. William Moulton Marston and H.G. Peter, there is no other name more synonymous with the character. (Save Lynda Carter, of course.) There have been many great writers and artists who have worked on the Wonder Woman property over the years, but none of them is as arguably impactful as Perez. He brought new depth to the character with an emotional resonance that few others had yet to achieve.

Happy New Year, dear readers! I think 2018 was a pretty good year for Wonder Woman, as far as comic book appearances and merchandise is concerned - not to mention television. With the Donna Troy Wonder Girl making her debut on the DC Universe series, Titans, can Wonder Woman’s return to the small screen be far behind? Hopefully, original television Wonder Woman Lynda Carter will be reprising her recurring role as POTUS on the Supergirl television series.  (If only she was president for real!)

Who is Wonder Girl?  Wonder Girl originally made her first appearance in comics as a younger version of Wonder Woman (Princess Diana). It wasn’t until she appeared as a member of the Teen Titans that she was given her Donna Troy alter ego.  After a few attempts, the Titans didn’t really gain popularity until they were rebooted in the '80s by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Perez.  A mix of old and new characters, the creators gave fans something a little different this time around. One of the previously established members of the team was Wonder Girl (a.k.a. Donna Troy), Wonder Woman’s adopted younger sister and sidekick. Under the tutelage of Wolfman and Perez, she would become one of the most popular members of the team.

Hey, true believers! Welcome to another pulse-pounding episode of Wonder Woman Wednesday! (That was my mini tribute to Stan Lee. Rest in peace to one of the most important names in comic book history.)

Today sees the release of Wonder Woman #58 from DC Comics. Not only will there be a new storyline, but the introduction of a new creative team, as well. Although I’ve never read G. Willow Wilson’s writing, I was excited that a woman would be taking the helm. And, with her accolades on Ms. Marvel, I am more than willing to give her a chance.

Hi, Wonder fans!  As we know, here at Fanbase Press, there are all kinds of fandoms and fans, from Star Wars, to Star Trek, to My Lil’ Pony's all-male following of “Bronies.” All kinds of fandoms are fiercely devoted in their own right. 

Happy Halloween, fellow Amazons and Wonder Woman enthusiasts. I can’t wait to see all of the amazing Wonder Woman and Amazon costumes sure to sweep the Halloween landscape today. We’re more than a year past Wonder Woman's release date, and the character of Wonder Woman is more popular than ever. Sure, she’s always been a popular Halloween costume, but with the popularity of the DC live-action films, you can throw Amazons into the mix, too. I think the Amazons were the surprise breakout of the film. So popular, in fact, that Warner Bros. decided to add them to the Justice League film when it was already well into production.  I said it before and I’ll say it again: The Amazons deserve more exposure.

Hola, Wonder Warriors. Welcome to another edition of Wonder Woman Wednesday. It’s still a long way before June 5, 2020, arrives and we finally get the Wonder Woman sequel we’ve been salivating for since the credits rolled to the first
installment. In the meantime, I wanted to share some interesting facts and theories coming from the set. Since none of these are set in stone, things could definitely change, but I feel the need to warn of possible spoilers in the event they do see the day of light.

The long-anticipated wait for Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette’s Wonder Woman: Earth One - Volume 2 is over. Earth One is another reality offshoot at DC Comics that offers a take on the DC Universe, but steeped in the modern world. I equate it to Marvel’s Ultimate line of comics, if that helps to shorthand it for you. This line of comics comes in the form of original hardcover trade paperbacks, as opposed to monthly magazines.
