Because some of you expressed mild curiosity... Diana Prince The All New Wonder Woman in her final adventure as a "super spy," before once again becoming the star spangled messenger of the gods...

The Special Women's Lib Issue!




"Maybe, Cathy. But W.W. could mean a lot of things! Maybe they were trying to bring back a Windshield Wiper!"

--Diana Prince... not so wise as Athena.

Dynamite Entertainment has just announced that it will be publishing a crossover of two series with iconic female leads from 1970's TV; Wonder Woman (as in the Lynda Carter version) and the Bionic Woman (with Lyndsay Wagner)

Two series I have fond memories off, it'll be fun to see what they can do with this.

Also interesting that Dynamite has opened offices in DC and basically tapped some of the talent and staff that DC let go when they moved to California!

The article also mentions that they will be publishing new comics featuring The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew (though not, I would imagine the Shaun Cassidy/Parker Stevenson/Pamela Sue Martin versions);

Their new series, which will make its premiere next year, will take two tracks, Mr. Rybandt said — “one, which aims for the mass-market teen and tween reader, and also something for the comic book market that aims a little older.

The "mining the past" has been paying dividends, so this seems like a fairly sensible plan, as recently, DC has published three 60's TV franchises crossoing over all featuring the Batman '66 TV cast.

The Batman '66/Green Hornet crossover was fun, and had some nifty deathtraps, even if it did highlight what a fundamentally dull character the TV Green Hornet was (It never screened in the UK when I was growing up, so I have no nostalgic attatchment to the series, but have to say Kato I wanted to see more of, GH not so much)

Batman '66/The Man from UNCLE was thoroghly enjoyable, and I really must post some from it, as it includes an excellent analysis of what motivates Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Napoleon Solo and Ilya Kuryakin.

Batman '66/The Avenegers (Well, "Steed and Mrs Peel") has just started and I'm not sure about yet. Steed and Emma would meet characters like Batman and Robin in their own show, but would treat them as humourous eccentrics, whereas Batman '66 plays it's characters dead straight (when it's doing it right) so we'll see. Also the Avengers have characters die on a regular basis (especially given the bad guys they're using for the series) whereas Batman 66 had a combined death toll of about three people and all in the first few episodes (Molly in the first story, and two gunmen in the Zelda the Great episodes).

"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

"I've read everything [in "Wonder Woman"] since I left, so the goal of this is not to be "This is a continuation of Greg's run." The goal is that this is a continuation of Wonder Woman's story. Since it's cast in the light of "Rebirth," one of the things we're all working really hard at doing is reconciling some of the incredible inconsistencies that have arisen in the 75-year history of the character." - Greg Rucka

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.

So guess what I found, everyone?

As much as today's comics are rightfully lambasted for their persistent sexist under(and sometimes over-)tones, it speaks rather glowingly of social progress that even the openly misogynist comics fans (and creators) of today would probably shudder at some of the works of yesteryear. As none of the comics on that list appear to be inhabitants of scans_daily (this edition, at least; some of them had probably been posted before the Great Crash), I have taken it upon myself to torture entertain you all with them.

First up... The Brave and the Bold #63 by one Mr. Bob Haney, creator of the Teen Titans, technical creator of Wonder Girl, and one of the most batshit insane writers of the Silver/Bronze age. I can't be certain, but I think this was the first meeting between Supergirl and Wonder Woman (this was before The Brave and the Bold turned into Batman and His Amazing Friends); if true, both "Super-chicks" have my deepest sympathies. Worse, the cover is an insidious little piece: 100% accurate to the story, 0% indicative of the shitstorm of sexism we're all in for.



Warning: do not read while drinking fluids. I will not be held reponsible for getting you a new keyboard. )
