LOVE this modern take on DC's Trinity! Also, where can I buy that Wondy jacket?

Wonder Woman Is …

The second installment of our "Wonder Woman Is... " series where we talk about when creative teams got Diana right in an attempt to be constructive and hopefully inspire DC to take note.

E.’s Megacon Highlight Reel

If you’re ever suffering from a case of fan malaise, find the nearest comics/sci-fi/fantasy/anime convention and go. You won’t regret it. As Megacon reminded me, there’s nothing quite like a con to reconnect a person with the joys of fandom. Spending a few days surrounded by happy people in costumes and talking to the creators...

On Gail Simone’s Removal from Batgirl

No matter how you felt about Oracle and Stephanie Brown's absence from DC's 52, Barbara Gordon's return as Batgirl was an undeniable success. A success for diversity. Because Barbara being shot by the Joker in The Killing Joke remained in continuity, Barbara Gordon was healing from a traumatic injury. In returning her to the streets... Continue Reading →

The Not So New DCU

You may have read Erika's review of Batman Incorporated #2, which is a stellar issue. Everything she said about it is true. Talia most certainly is a great character and Grant Morrison writes her well. But the issue stood out for me because it is full of DC continuity past. Somehow (we all know how),...

G3 Review: Wonder Woman #9

G3 has had some issues with Wonder Woman lately. Not the character, but her title. V. summed it up very well in a heartfelt post about her frustration with the comic book’s direction in recent months. I was OK with writer Brian Azzarello’s dark vision for the Amazons and his revamp of Wonder Woman’s origin,... Continue Reading →

Thoughts on Azzarello’s Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman means a lot of things to a lot of people. She's iconic and has permeated the collective consciousness in probably a million different ways depending on the person. So naturally, when Brian Azzarello comes along and changes every damn thing about her save her looks, it is most certainly going to make waves.... Continue Reading →

Poll: Judging ‘Before Watchmen’

If all publicity is good publicity, the controversy-coated Before Watchmen project is golden. Any mention of these prequels to the classic 1986 Watchmen series by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons makes the comics Internet light up like Times Square. But as with all things Watchmen-related, this question is unavoidable: Has DC knowingly mistreated the creators?... Continue Reading →

Friday Favorite: Starling

There was tons of skepticism about DC's new books, and Birds of Prey was no exception. How could you take a perfect formula, Gail's Dinah, Babs, and Zinda, and just change it? Well, even loaded with all the skepticism this fangirl could muster, I like the new Birds of Prey. I like it because of... Continue Reading →

G3 Review: Action Comics #5

Action Comics #5 Written by Grant Morrison Art by Andy Kubert, Jesse Delperdang, Brad Anderson, and Patrick Brosseau It’s the “New 52,” and the new Action Comics, and inevitably we revisit fall of Krypton. But how many ways can Krypton be annihilated? In Grant Morrison's take on Supes’ origin, he makes subtle tweaks to how... Continue Reading →

2011 Memorable Moment: Damian Goes Dark

It’s easy to dismiss Bruce Wayne’s son as an annoying brat, but I think that’s a shallow criticism. There’s a struggle within Damian that is fascinating, and his killer instinct has always been dangerously close to the surface. (Remember last year’s memorable moment, when he bashed the Joker’s head in with a crowbar?) Illustrator Patrick... Continue Reading →

Friday Favorite: Wonder Woman

When we started doing Friday Favorites here at G3, the concept was more about featuring B-list characters that we loved. We wanted to shine a light where it isn't always shining. But this Friday, I want to honor the leading lady of comics because she deserves it. More specifically, I'd like to honor Brian Azzarello... Continue Reading →

Comic Judgment: Best in Show

It’s weeks like this that make me so happy to be a comic book reader. All three titles that I pulled stuck the landing (My Batman and Robin #1 review is here) and marked the beginning of exciting new eras. We’re not just talking DC, either. Let’s get it started with:   Batwoman #1 There’s... Continue Reading →

Action Comics #1: Believe the Hype

If DC Comics wants to get more people onto the New 52 Express, its executives need to be on street corners handing out copies of the stellar Action Comics #1. Where the OK-ish Justice League #1 was the opening act that drew polite applause, this is the star attraction that brings people to their feet.... Continue Reading →

Comic Judgment: Debuts and Curtain Calls

There's nothing like a hefty Wednesday haul, especially when the books are as good as mine were this week. From a promising upstart to two venerable titles that took their bows, there's quite a bit to cover. Here we go ...

DC Relaunch Rundown: Part Two

While I'm not feeling particularly angsty about the relaunch, I am not terribly excited, either. I am … neutral. I feel like it is just a bunch of new books all at once instead of parsed out. So, I will try the titles that are interesting to me as I would any other time. Another... Continue Reading →
