"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 wasn't very familiar with Etta Candy going into this issue, but based on just this, I like her so far. Here's how Diana and Etta first met, plus Diana's Xena + Samurai Jack + Quantum Leap origin. (At least for this arc. I think.)

Also, look at that sickass cover! That'd make an excellent character poster.

6 pages from a nice 20 page issue.

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"). And one of the panels I thought might be of interest to S_D.

No, not that one.

Behind the cut... RACISM. )

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.
