We're not quite done with the Odyssey ride yet, but 610 gives us a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel. 4 pages.

You'll recall that in 609, Dr. Psycho took Diana on a jaunt through an interdimensional space and showed her several of her potential selves/origins, then told her to "create herself." She then fought her way through the forces of nature - metaphorical, I guess - to a Themysciran temple flanked by columns of variant Wonder Women, where Diana recommitted herself to being an avatar of Truth and Justice, I guess.

Then she woke up. In a hospital bed. Being tended to by Dr. Etta Candy. And Nurse D. Prince.

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? )

So that's a glimpse of the new setting Wondy's apparently going to settle in. There's at least one more page that has to be posted here; personally I'm thinking [personal profile] bluefall is just the one to do it. :D

So on Cracked, Seanbaby put up a new blog entry on the five worst sidekicks in comics. (Warning: Do not click or you'll be found three hours later reading "Five insects with a truly ridiculous amount of legs"). http://www.cracked.com/blog/the-5-gayest-fattest-most-racist-most-useless-sidekicks-of-all-time/. And one of the panels I thought might be of interest to S_D.



No, not that one.

Behind the cut... RACISM. )

And for legality, a random page from Wonder Woman v.1, #239:

Note to mods: someone seems to have deleted the "Tigra" tag, so I had to make up the one I listed. It may or may not be correct. Also, if there ever was a "Sin" tag, it's been deleted. But there might not have been one, since she's a pretty minor character.

Yeah, I kind of dropped the ball on the weekly posts, but the scans have so much time between them that my heart went out of it. Dunno whether I'll keep up, but I'm giving up on the showcase-style posts. Instead, here's my two favorite strips from week six.

Today's offering is from "The Blue Spirit Mystery", Sensation Comics #30, 1944. It's a surprisingly complex (though nonetheless cracked out) story about a racket in the form of a cult that swindles people out of their money.

Really, a lot of Golden Age comics had plots much more complex than most Silver and Bronze Age ones, and dealt with comparatively mature subjects - not mature in the sense of sex and violence, but how many 7-year-olds would one expect to be interested in cult religion scams? I think they gave kids more credit then. Though of course, the stories were still whacked out.

THIS IS ONE OF THE CRACKIEST WW STORIES EVER.

The story reveals Marston's usual lack of compunction about deus ex machina and, shall we say, casual grasp of science. Remember that he was a psychologist, with more than a hint of the huckster about him. His editor revealed years later that "if I had let him put in all the symbolism and stuff he wanted to, the stories would have been even weirder." The mind boggles.

This story was 36 pages long, so there are lots of scans, 9 pages worth. Good thing, because I didn't want to have to drop any of them.

Also, you can see Silver Age Giganta here.

Not at all dial-up friendly.

These are from Sensation Comics #4, 1942. Remember that these can be bought in the Archive Edition reprints; thus far there are five Wonder Woman volumes. And they have them of other Golden Age comics too; I also have the Black Canary volume.

This issue introduces Wonder Woman's enemy Baroness Paula von Gunther, whom she later reformed, probably by spanking her.

This is one of my favorite Golden Age WW stories ever, Wonder Woman vs. the International Milk Company. It's one of those unusually cracked out ones. Originally published in Sensation #7 in 1942.

These are from Sensation Comics #11, 1942.

You know, the comic book writers and artists of the 40's didn't know that they were the Golden Age. I'm sure it never occurred to any of them that decades later, adults would be reading their creations, analyzing them and laughing at the plot holes. They were just trying to pay the rent. They had to make those kids hand over that dime which might well be a whole week's allowance, so they used the most eye-catching gimmicks they could think of. "People like cowboys/ancient Egypt/leopard-skin-clad jungle queens," they would say. "Let's build a story around that." And they would, however far-fetched the combination might be.

And it's lucky for us that they did so, because it gave the more serious comic book writers of today, who know that adults are going to read their stories with a critical eye, all kinds of crazy elements that they have to try to get to make sense. Today's comic book readers want to have our cake and eat it too; we want our heroes to be from other planets or from lost civilizations, we want them to be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, we want them to run around doing good deeds in patriotically colored spandex... and we want the writer to make all of this make sense.

I love superhero comics.

Today's installment is basically The Story of O for kids. Really. No, really. It was very hard not to just scan the whole issue.
