"I love what Gail Simone (especially) and other writers have done to empower the Wonder Woman concept but I must admit I’ve always sensed something slightly bogus and troubling at its heart. When I dug into the roots of the character I found an uneasy melange of girl power, bondage and disturbed sexuality that has never been adequately dealt with or fully processed out to my mind. I’ve always felt there was something oddly artificial about Wonder Woman, something not like a woman at all.

Having said that, I became quite fascinated by these contradictions and problems and tried to resolve them for what turned into a different project entirely. Partly because I didn’t want to use any of that new material in Final Crisis, I relegated Wonder Woman to a role that best summed up my original negative feelings about the character. My apologies to her fans and I promise to be a little more constructive next time around."

"Of course I’m aware of a perpetual and chronic discontent from a particular jaded minority on the internet but I try to overlook their constant expressions of dissatisfaction on the grounds that it’s depressing and often personally abusive.

Surely part of the fun of comics includes following stories across titles? If you like comics, what’s so awful about buying another one to see what happens next? And if you don’t want to buy it, don’t bother. Do something else. Buy cigarettes or booze or bananas. I don’t know!"

"Every time I read about the agonizing pains of ‘event fatigue’ or how ‘3-D hurts my head…’ or how something’s ‘incomprehensible’ when most people are ‘comprehending’ it just fine, it’s like visiting a nursing home. ‘Events’ in superhero comic books FATIGUE you? I’m speechless. Admittedly they do tend to be a little more exciting than the instruction leaflets that come with angina pills but… ‘fatigue’?

Superhero comics should have an ‘event’ in every panel! We all know this instinctively. Who cares ‘how?’ as long as it feels right and looks brilliant ?"

Welcome, s_d, to the tale of a sweet, modest little romance that bloomed in the background of the Big Universe Saving plots of the 1980s Legion of Super-Heroes. It's the story of a new-agey crystal girl and her mineral balance.



Blok and the White Witch.

We all change. That's what gives us life. )

So now they're both on inactive status. But maybe someday they'll rejoin the Legion, and be cute and lighthearted again. Hope springs eternal, right?

"Wait, WHAT!?" Part 10.

Yes, after pretty much a year away, I return! I skipped Parts 5-9. I'll get around to them eventually, I swear! It's really hard to cut down on stories that are pretty much ONLY about Renee, so I'll need help doing Half A Life, Corrigan, Crime Bible, and Revelations. I have 52 ready, but I'm not sure if I can post so much of one character's story (because by keeping in the 7 or less rule, I can post pretty much all of Renee's 52 story.)

Renee in Final Crisis! It's not what you think... )
Anyways, on another related note, this weekend, I have $30 Borders Gift card and I'm going to one of the closing stores. I'm in the mood for some really good comics, straight up classics. So, any suggestions as to what I should get!?

Remember Katarina Armstrong? She was the second Spy Smasher, appearing in Birds of Prey #100-108 (collected in the trades "Blood and Circuits" and "Dead of Winter," for those who are interested).

Katarina returned this week in Final Crisis Aftermath: Escape #3, written by Ivan Brandon and illustrated by Marco Rudy.

Crossposted from NoScans_Daily. 

With the publication of Final Crisis Aftermath: Dance, some more of the wackiness regarding the Super Young Team of Japanese-Wannabe-American Heroes has risen through the internet.

I thought I'd add to the kafuffle with an unorganized generally off the cuff reaction to this.



But those are my thoughts on the situation.

And, for Legality, a Japanese character who got better treatment, and J. Johna Jameson.
Edited for Correction.
