Mini photo shoot from yesterday! We’ll be at MegaCon all day today, say hello!
One of my favorite guest posters, Tim Hanley, has taken his love of comics to a new level. This week his book about Wonder Woman becomes available. I’ve read a copy and if you like Wonder Woman or woman in comics, you need to read this book. Buy it here. To celebrate the release, Tim is guest posting again and this time he takes on some misconceptions about Wonder Woman and her world.
Tim’s thoughts follow.
holy shit, diana.
During the last few days I’ve been asked about two Wonder Woman items a number of times. The possible new creative team is one and I’ll be putting together some thoughts on that. Second, is my reaction to this post on CBR, "My 10 Year-Old Daughter Couldn’t Care Less About Wonder Woman."
It’s a good read so go take a look. She notes that Wonder Woman is not pervasive as a role model for girls in pop culture is absolutely true. She hasn’t had a TV show in 35 year; has never a big screen movie; she has had not ever had a kid friendly comics that focus exclusively on her. And there are so few kid’s toys that feature Wonder Woman that I have written entire posts on them when they show up. By contrast if I did that for, say, Batman there would be an entire blog devoted to it. Oh wait, there is one.
And I absolutely agree with the writer’s concern about her daughter not caring about Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is a great character for girls - powerful, wise, smart and, when written correctly, one who chooses peace over war and love over hate. One who fights for good and equality. Plus she has an invisible plane. Who wouldn’t want to be like her?
Obviously this little girl does.
So I have to ask, “so why isn’t there a Wonder Woman all-ages comic?”
I really like this naive, optimistic run of Supergirl.
Yeah. This was some good writing and lovely art.
valentines gift for the princeling heh
muslim wonder woman was jay’s idea and i brought her 2 life hope u like it sena <3
Ugh, every time I see something glorious like this I rage even more that DC gave the whole ‘global inspiration’ plotline to Bruce for Batman, Inc instead of Diana.
Because it’s, like, one of the entire fucking points of her character. Well, was, anyway. Of course, that would require the dudebros running DC these days to actually have some sort of sympathy for the character or her fans.
I really really hope Diana hits the public domain in 2017.
Wonder Woman vs. Super Woman (Justice League Crisis on Two Earths)
And this is the difference between a warrior and a fighter: skill.
Always liked the older Ancient Greek Amazon take on Wonder Woman… another Note 8.0 doodle in Clover…
Wow! Love this!
Nothing about this really says ‘Wonder Woman’ to me, but hot fucking damn, it’s a sweet character design.
Lasso of Truth is an upcoming stage play about the origins of Wonder Woman as told through the life of her creator, psychologist William Moulton Marston. Marston based his comic book heroine on two women, his wife Elizabeth Holloway Marston and Olive Byrne, his former student who lived with the Marstons in a polyamorous relationship. Lasso of Truth was created by Carson Kreitzer and will premiere at the Marin Theatre Company in Mill Valley, California on February 20, 2014. The theater is raising funds for the play on Indiegogo..
For the attention and information of anyone who might be in California towards the end of next month.
