    Hopefully the powers that be have enough sense to write the HBO Max contract in such a way that they can place it on other streaming networks in places where HBO Max doesn't have a presence. I know...

    In some ways, this feels like a throwback to Golden Age Wonder Woman. Not much of a world-building, more focus on Diana trying to solve the problem rather than punching her way through it, hardly any...

    Serie-Pocket was something as strange as a reprint digest that switched from one magazine to reprint to another. So one issue might be The Phantom, next Superman, then Andy Capp, followed by some...

    Yeah. One could probably make a statistical study of the number of women (or other disenfranchised groups) who appear in supporting roles in women-led (equivalent) titles, and compare how men...

    CaptCleghorn for the sheer WTFery of the cover. Honourable mention to foxley for great use of shadows.

    I don't think it's fast at all. Rather, I believe this is how it will be, from this time on: a character is developed deep within the bowels of DC/WB/CW, and then you get more or less simultaneous...

    There is more than that. Pérez's retelling of the Amazon backstory could come right out of Exodus, with the Amazons being the chosen people that are given divine edicts, the ocean being parted for...

    Yeah, that is another angle at this, but I think a lot depends on what the focus is, and why there is a change.

    Things like the attributes of the mythological characters should be largely left...

    Doesn't this sort of center Clark? Clark is the passing other, while Superman is the other.

    I think Wolfman's Man and Superman and Yangs Superman Smashes the Klan are good examples here. Both put...

    For a character like Marvel Thor, I'd agree. But Wonder Woman was born out of ideology.

    Fidelity to the myths is not necessary. But I think it's very important that Wonder Woman writers have a great understanding of both the myths and of the theories used to interrogate the myths. The...

    Agreed with both of these.

    I'd also add that there is another element, and that is what type of stories to tell. A lot of the early superhero stories center around helping, protecting, and...

    Is that a challenge for running a Liefeld cover contest?

    And now I have an idea for another theme: feet.

    I think one thing that made the original Birds of Prey so good was that Dixon and Simone managed to create the team equivalent of an origin story but drawn out over a very long period. I'm thinking...

    Diana Princess of the Amazons also sold really well. And raw sales is only one part, it's also really important if a title manages to find new readers. Last, the creative quality from the Ink et c...

    There is plenty to like in the late Agent of Peace stories, like the way it is implied that Yuri is a trans woman. But I also think the art all to often is generic, and there are small quality stuff...

    Artgerm's covers seldom speak to me: not only is there the extreme male gaze, the way the bodies look nearly interchangably, but also there is often a vacant and plasticky expression to them. But...

    Bother. They have let Michele Wells go… after she had built up DC Ink/Zoom/Young Reader, arguably DC's most creatively interesting and successful line for a long time.

    That's what I wonder to. DC Ink/Zoom/Young Reader has been a smash success from a creative standpoint, with a much higher level of storytelling and themes than DC's regular output.

    What BohemiaDrinker said.

    If anything, I doubt DC's sales had any reason for why DiDio was fired, when he was fired, or why he was fired. Instead, I think office politics played a big part, and as...
