    Funny that you mention Wheel of Time, because I was quite the fan of the series for a very long while. I even created one of the more highly-regarded personal WoT web sites, 20 years or so ago (no,...

    Ugh.

    To me such a take would be anathema for the way Oracle is constructed as a character. It's taking away what kept Babs going after losing the use of her legs—her will and her mind. And then...

    I have absolutely nothing against new villains in over-and-done stories, if the stories are good.

    Trouble is, #11 didn't have a good story, depending too much on a sudden reveal and info-dump to...

    Oh, no doubt that Zatanna is lighter than DC's other magical heroes. She is a liminal figure, straddling the magical world, the superhero world, and the mundane world.

    On the other hand, it is said that a picture is worth a thousand words.

    My observation is that writing comics is a wildly different mode of writing than writing normal prose. Pictures are in many...

    I think DC will publish it, unless things go seriously awry with them. Harleen was both a critical and a commercial success, and Sejic mentioned somewhere that DC was willing to recruit an artist to...

    Remember that DC's Ink line hasn't shied away from being dealing with dark or difficult themes in a serious manner. Both the Catwoman and the Oracle books are examples. So I think it's a bit too...

    Did GWW succeed in making a new vision of Wonder Woman? No. I think I saw what she wanted to accomplish with her run, but I also know that I'm in the minority on that, and Wilson never got the chance...

    I'm of two minds about that. There are tricky aspects to Wonder Woman's character, primarily in that she is the by far the most radical of DC's heroes and heroines in the way she was constructed, and...

    My take on it: DC's movers and shakers are incapable of story-telling (especially drama), and thus resort to moving around the basic building blocks in the hope that something sticks. Since they...

    Psycho never controlled Diana, at least not directly. What he did was controlling the hostages, and using the external threats against the hostages in order make Diana do his bidding.

    Non-comics cover hasn seldom been a problem, and this is more supposed to be fun than anything else. Mistakes only add to its cachet.

    Yeah, but at least with her fellow superheroes, it's more like Wonder Woman is passed around as a trophy than she is an actual romantic subject.

    Out-of-universe the answer is Batman :p

    Written by Marv Wolfman, too, and it showed what a really good writer can do. It was a lot more tense and filled with suspense than nearly every other Wonder Woman story I've read.
