Okay, so taking a cue from Icon, and as a rebuttal to a characterization of Wonder Woman in a recent post, I wanted to share a story from the new Sensation Comics that I really liked. It's less than a month old in print form, but in web form (which I'm copying from) it's older... so I think that makes it okay to go to 1/3rd?

Equivalent to 6 out of 20 half pages from chapter 12, and 8 out of 24 of Chapter 13.

ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #636 was an epilogue of IDENTITY CRISIS, and also set up some of what would become INFINITE CRISIS. It was (also) drawn by Rags Morales with the story by Greg Rucka.

Following "Batman '66", DC's next Digital First title, is the Lynda Carter inspired "Wonder Woman '77"



Now it has to be said that, though Batman 66 set it's own surreal tone, Wonder Woman 77 was more of a product of the late 1970's... Disco... a certain post Bicentennial afterglow of patriotic fervour and the pesky, pesky Russians....

So what could be more natural... )

I'm a little more generous to the New-52 than some other fans, there are a lot of books I've enjoyed, including Wonder Woman, but one thing I have not been able to forgive is making Diana the daughter of Zeus. Of course Azzarello and Jim Lee had their reasons for doing so, as stated in this article:



“She’s going to learn she’s not who she was told she was,” Azzarello told the Post. “Everybody’s got a father, even if he’s not the nicest guy in the world.”

DC Co-Publisher Jim Lee told the Post that rewriting the character’s origins to make her the offspring of two parents rather than, say, sand could make Wonder Woman accessible to many readers. “In this case, making her a god actually makes her more human, more relatable,” said Lee.


I reject that reasoning... first off I question why in a universe where there are a number of last of their kind aliens, demons, and immortals we read about that a woman forged from clay is such a stretch. The two largest religions in the world share a creation story where a man was formed from dust, and his wife from his rib.

Never mind the "everyone has got a father," thing while true from a biological perspective (depending on how you define father), does not necessarily play into the life of every person raised by a same-sex couple, or single parent.

And most importantly, it undermines a parallel to Greek Myth and the origin of Pandora in Hessiod's Works and Days. More on that

Happy Christmas to all who celebrate!

Today is a special day. Not just because many people are out with their friends and family celebrating a major holiday, but because today is the one day where we make an exception to our 'we are a comic scans' community rule and actually post other media.

Oh yes. Today is favourite 'other media' day!

And you know which media did it best?

The DC Animated Universe! )

I've been following the new digital Sensation Comics, and thought I'd share some of the stories so far. Three stories below, around 6 1/2 pages each of 20-page stories.

News from NYCC

Since Batman 66 has been doing quite well, it seems only natural that for their next title, DC Digital are producing one based on TV's live-action Wonder Woman!

And the first cover art from Nicola Scott is a thing of genuine beauty!

She's a wonder, Wonder Woman! )

Certain creators not liking certain characters is nothing new. But sometimes it is hard to tell.
In GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH, it certainly seemed Geoff Johns doesn't like Batman. Specifically, the post-Zero Hour Batman. John Stewart said Batman never liked Hal Jordan because Hal wasn't afraid of him. (Because Batman's just that petty.) But let's move on to INFINITE CRISIS.

It used to be so easy, variant covers were shiny foil versions of the normal cover, or had die-cut sections, or sometimes even holograms, and you could just ignore them...

But then come cunning bastard in Marketing came up with the idea of variant covers that readers might actually think were cool, or even worth the having. Case in point

Warning, a LOT of images under the cut, and unrepentently Silver Age-ish (and with thanks for Newsarama for sourcing them all in one place)

A series of Darwyn Cooke variant covers! )
