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.
When Gail talks, we listen. Especially when she's talking comics. Here's a rundown of the best bits of the Spotlight on Gail Simone panel at MegaCon 2013.
For better or worse, comic fans knew that DC's relaunch would bring changes to beloved characters. As Brian Azzarello took on the daunting task of writing Diana of Themyscira, Princess of the Amazons, he had a devoted fan base to appeal to. At first, he was fairly successful. I was sold. In my defense, the beauty of... Continue Reading →
You could argue that every Wednesday is a holiday for those of us who get a weekly comic book fix. We play Santa Claus to ourselves, merrily leaving the LCS with a fresh stack and maybe a few … unplanned purchases that prompt our significant others to ask what the hell is up with these...

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 →
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 →
V. sounds off and reflects on her week in comics. This week: Detective Comics, Birds of Prey, The Infinite Vacation, Wonder Woman, Fables, and The Strange Talent of Luther Strode.
A revealing clip from the fabulous-looking documentary Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines, makes a powerful case for the necessity of this film. In a series of street interviews, people of both sexes begin rattling off the names of comic book characters, and not a single female comes up. Not even Wonder Woman.... Continue Reading →
V. runs down her pull list - Wonder Woman, Birds of Prey, Fables, Morning Glories, and of course ... CHEW!
ANY day of the year will do for the following First World items my heart so desires. If you are interested in sponsoring a small piece of my geek happiness without anything in return besides a thank you, message me. I'm not kidding. Ame-Comi Heroine Series: Wonder Woman I should have bought it when it... Continue Reading →
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 →
In the world of many superheroes, killing a villain is verboten. Theoretically, doing so would undermine their moral authority and blur the line between angels and demons — even if the target is a cold-blooded murderer with no remorse and a high recidivism rate. Better to break a few of the bad guy’s bones and... Continue Reading →
My full review of Wonder Woman #1 is up over at Newsarama.com. CLICK HERE to check it out.
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 ...
It's obvious that Bobby Rubio (aka Barry Presh) is a gifted illustrator, but it's his cheeky sense of humor that quickly grabbed my attention. Check the cred: He's a story artist for Pixar who has worked at Nickelodeon and Disney, and his comics resume includes Wildstorm and Dark Horse. You might be familiar with his... Continue Reading →
Oblivious to our torches and pitchforks, DC is (apparently) pairing Wonder Woman and Aquaman for the upcoming Flashpoint event. Their union will save the world! Whatever. Our investment in BatWondy remains strong and, as should now be obvious, constant. A while back, I stumbled across illustrator Luckico's DeviantArt page and adored many of her pieces....

V. knows way more about Smallville than I do, but I was a fan of this show in its early days. Though poor Tom Welling has yet to don a cape, there have been some notable, full-costume appearances by major DC players. But since it's a TV show and not a big-screen blockbuster, Smallville has...

Somewhere, Jim Lee is breathing a sigh of relief. While his Wonder Woman costume redesign ruffled the feathers of fans and the fashion-conscious public at large, he looks like Zac Posen compared to the person who unleashed this pleather horror of adult superstore chic here. As you already know, this is the first photo of... Continue Reading →
I don't know about you, but I was thrilled to see Diana's old costume on the cover of Wonder Woman #609. No matter how much I looked at it, that horror of a '90s shopping mall getup never grew on me. The dowdy boots. The choker. Good riddance. Of course, Jim Lee is hardly the... Continue Reading →
We think we’ve made it pretty clear who we want Wonder Woman to boo up with. However, a comment from a reader (Hi, Celeste!) about the above Stephane Roux illustration of Diana with Artemis got me thinking: “They would actually make a really hot couple. Just sayin.’” I’d made an offhand comment about this in... Continue Reading →
Over the past year, we’ve asked for your opinion on everything from Wonder Woman’s drawers to whether you gave a rat’s ass about the upcoming Green Lantern movie. The results were always entertaining, and frequently surprising. Without further ado, here are the results from polls past: 1. Which version of Diana’s knickers do you prefer?... Continue Reading →
