"For the longest time, DC has put Diana on the pedestal, but because of the audience interest she hasn't really been supported. She hasn't been portrayed in a way that fought that status. But certainly in the last couple of years and this year in particular because of the film, because of Grant Morrison's "Earth One" and because of Renae De Liz's "Legend of Wonder Woman," it feels like the audience is really waking up to the fact that this character is really important. And they're showing up. I feel like that's really fantastic and that we're really lucky because we get to do something of significance with this character at a significant time." - Nicola Scott

Recently, I was reading Moore's run on Swamp Thing, and the issue which reprinted the first Swamp Thing story (adding the Alex Olsen Swamp Thing to the Alec Holland Swamp Thing's mythos), and the framing story, featuring Cain and Abel got me to thinking about the pre-Sandman existences of some of the major characters...after tracking down their earlier appearances, it occurred to me to share the first appearances of the ones I knew of... (I'll be ignoring most of the superhero characters and John Constantine, since, with one exception, they only had roles in one arc, aside from The Wake. (Or, in the case of Wesley Dodds was barely a cameo in either of his appearances, even if they were in different arcs.))

Thus this post. )

So, there we go...hope you enjoyed.

The success of Bombshells would be a Cinderella story if Cinderella wore motorcycle boots. The initial idea was to build a comic book inspired by a line of popular collectible figurines. That germ of an idea has expanded into one of the brightest and funniest comics DC has to offer. The comic sold 60,000 copies in its debut print issue in August — a massive number for a digital-first comic.

Women writers and artists like Bennett often face backlash for "pushing an agenda," which is usually followed up by complaints that they're ruining comics by not having women overtly sexualized in their stories. A similar backlash is also applied to nonwhite writers and nontraditional heroes.
But 60,000 issues has a way of drowning out those voices.
"I feel like there was a lot of resistance to that at first, but now people are like, 'The books are here, you can see what they're like, they're great. Go forth and read,'" Bennett said. "I think people are starting to understand that this is not the destruction of Western civilization if you let girls in your goddamn clubhouse."

Diversity is making DC Comics great again

The lovely folks here introduced me to the DC comics: Bombshells series, so I thought I'd complete the circle and post a few of my favourite moments :) )

Boy, do I have some crack for y'all today. Published in Wonder Woman #7, winter of 1943. This is a long story, so I counted the pages and made sure I didn't have too many. Had to delete a few of the scans that were in this post on the old s_d.

This one was published in 1946. I gather that the issue had multiple stories about Lana, whose mental turmoil about her relationship with her no-good boyfriend Carl Ambishun AKA Silas Sneek had the side effect of taking her and the Holliday girls to other time periods, where they would temporarily forget that they hadn't been born in ancient Greece or wherever and behave as if they belonged there. Since Lana said "Oh, my formula", I'm assuming she made some kind of chemical thingie that she drank that gave her this ability. I really, really want to see how this concept was introduced. But all my collection includes is the last of the stories about Lana.

Thank you, everyone who said they wanted to see more WW! So I will work my way backwards through my own LJ, posting one a day (when possible) until I've reposted it all. And I'll repost the few non-WW posts I made too, though not till after I'm done with Wondy.

The first few posts will be from this 70's collection, as was yesterday's.

This issue was published in 1945. It was one of my favorites from this old collection, mainly because there was a lot of bondage.
