    I've enjoyed the back-up and appreciate it's attempt to reinvigorate the canon with previous bits of unique WW concepts (Well of Souls, Kangas, megalodons, Hippolyta and Phillipus flirting was life...

    To I'm a Fish's point: Queer people have icons that aren't queer, though. I think there's a nuanced difference between WW's iconography used to express solidarity and support for queer people and...

    Not since her come back in Rebirth. I think. Lobdell is really the only writer to have used her in significantly since Rebirth, barring a team up two parter with Diana in the main book under Orlando....

    Yeah, that's my take on that pic, too.

    Now I want to see a fight scene with Dinah where she starts with a toothpick in her mouth and she shoots it out before proceeding to whup some bad guy butt.

    But anywho, DC has always had weird rules about what Batman is allowed to do. Remember during the new-52 when they...

    Glad you're digging it!

    I gotta agree about the pacing. Outside of maybe Orlando's stuff, the WW book often has pretty decompressed writing. So her meeting people, going places, doing things,...

    Is there an organic way to combine fun, fiesty, and punchy Etta with military hard-ass Etta? If they could, it'd be kinda awesome and the kind of character that really should be in a WW comic.

    Seriously. They could have copped out and done a story where Diana protects a queer couple or queer protest.

    But, really, if they didn't want to show their number 1 lady hero as openly queer,...

    Good issue!

    There was quite a bit going on in this issue, thematic and narrative -wise that I'll have to do a reread to dig into.

    I like the Valkyries as a foil to the Amazons and hope that's...

    Yeah, I felt like there was a conspicuous absence of Amazons in the Pride Anthology, particularly at the end for the JLQ. It's like DC is so afraid to pass the invisible line of queerness. The back...

    ^ Sames here. The narrative and thematic juiciness in just these preview pages is great. And this art! Bless.

    So you never had an interest in the queer woman lead for some decades. You became interested in her when she became the world's strongest white guy's babe. You didn't read post-crisis and dropped it...

    I feel like this was said word for word on the Harley Quinn show when they had their bachelorette party on Paradise Island (Harley, Ivy, Catwoman, Hippolyta too i think)!

    Paradise Island was Fire...

    But she's allowed to win, lol. Most hero on hero fights aren't won on a strictly stat by stat basis anywho. So what, she used different means. I thought the Wisdom of Athena and upbringing would...

    I kinda liked the Swiss army knife bracelets that allow her to create/pull any weapon out. It's a cool way to incorporate a little magic, a little martial arts, different cultures and fighting...

    I think this a reasonable and rational way of looking at things. But I empathize with fans riding that negativity train, but it seems like DC and the new powers that be are trying and perhaps the...

    She is queer. This really shouldn't be up for debate lol. Just because DC likes to hide that nugget doesn't mean it hasn't been in her DNA from the inception. It's DC's fear of that radical,...

    She's the most radical and subversive character underneath those supehero tropes and trappings. She comes from a lady utopia where she was born out of love, outside the influence of any man. Her...

    This is also compounded by the human element in the retail market - many shopowners won't order a book with a PoC, especially if it's a new character. It's that gate-keeping bs that keeps new readers...

    I'm loving the references to the different eras with the different costumes on those covers. And yeah, post-crisis costume looks good by Moore.

    Also, I gotta say I love how strange this whole arc...

    Although this is a pretty neat idea so I don't mind at all.
