    Black Canary and Diana are two characters that have worked well together in earlier stories, and complement each other from both a drama and an action stance.

    Yes, but there are nuances to how and why her preparations aren't perfect. That she will suffer from some form of culture shock in Man's World is largely a given, but as always the devil is in the...

    That hits right into Popper's paradox of intolerance. And that's even more acute for a group that has been suppressed or oppressed for a long time. They need real reassurances that they, specifically...

    I'm not sure I'd stretch Morrison's Wonder Woman Earth One so far as "ambitious failure". My read is that rather that Morrison totally failed to understand where Marston came from, or how feminist...

    The tragedy of the way Paquette draws the Amazons is that he is capable of drawing women on their own terms. His Etta Candy is confident, kind, playful, and empathic. His Etta is also really sexy,...

    I think one can make another read of the Steve-Diana dynamic. First, there is an editorial eternity between Wilson's run and whatever will come in Future State. I think Wilson intended not to break...

    It looks gorgeous, but it doesn't really say anything to me. I think the main problem here is that Paquette makes all the Amazons look sexy all the time. They are angry and sexy; surprised and sexy;...

    I can recommend checking out any issue of DC's this week. I think they all include a two-page spread about the history of voting in the US, and a call for voting.

    One should always read marketing stuff with at least two grains of salt. Preferably more. The people writing copy or blurbs are often far from the decisions.

    I think a character like Leslie Thompkins is necessary for a well-rounded approach to Batman and Gotham. But I'm not sure DC is interested in, or currently even capable, of a well-rounded approach to...

    Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised if that will happen, unless DC manages to break its existing culture of closed silos for its characters.

    Which would be a real pity. With the big shift in...
