“Wonder Woman, Bring back the legs, the muscles, and the flag, please”: Here’s another piece from a mainstream media source complaining about Wondy’s new wardrobe…and another one from someone who seemingly doesn’t read Wonder Woman comics anymore. You know, if everyone who complained about the costume change this week actually read a Wonder Woman comic a couple times a year, then maybe her comic would actually be a hit. Or, at the very least, ranking higher than Green Arrow on charts like these. I suppose there is an important lesson for DC in the reaction to the Wonder Woman-gets-pants story—there are a ton of people interested in the character that don’t actually read her comics out there, meaning the potential audience for the character is pretty huge. So make with the Earth One GNs and all-ages out-of-continuity manga already!
The ladies who compiled this deserve gold medals for linkblogging: I mentioned in my post yesterday that the tsunami of Wonder Woman-talking-about overwhelmed me to the point where I just couldn’t keep up. How many posts are there about Wonder Woman on the Internet? Well, When Fangirls Attack found roughly three billion, which you can see assembled here. Wow. That is a lot of posts. For me the must-read one was that on Project: Rooftop, in which the P:R gang responds at great length to the redesign. Most of them weren’t terribly enamored of it, although Jemma Salume loved it enough to draw it almost immediately.
This Batcave Beach comic sounds kinda neat: Even if it isn’t about Batman, Alfred and the sidekicks all taking a family trip to the beach. (Via Comics Reporter)
It’s not often you see an article that uses a preise, reverend and rabbi joke as the lede: “Funnyman, and the Jewish superhero’s story, is finally being told”
Good luck making an Ant-Man movie anything but hilarious!: “‘Ant-Man’ Will Have Same Level of Comedy As ‘Iron Man’, Says Edgar Wright”
Sadly, it’s not a Star Trek/True Blood crossover: “Star Trek, True Blood Stars Collaborate on Comic-Book Series”
