    Default The Wonder Woman Golden Age Reread

    I have participated in reading circles in several different fannish groups (both online and meatspace), and they are often interesting and fun. One great variant is a shared rereading of a book or series, so why not try something similar?

    Since the omnibus Wonder Woman—The Golden Age is readily available in volume 1 and 2, why not start there, at the very beginning?

    We read one issue/story per week and discuss it, with discussion starting on Saturdays. Most Golden Age stories are rather short, so we could likely speed up the tempo, but part of the fun is to have the opportunity to do a close read and discussion in depth.

    The contents of "Wonder Women—The Golden Age volume 1" for those following via individual issues, together with the schedule (I will edit that as needed).

    Schedule; the current discussion in bold, the coming discussion in italics.

    Easiest way to get all these stories is via the Wonder Woman Golden Age omnibus volumes that DC has released. Hardcover omnibus volumes 2 and 3 have come out, but softcover and digital versions are only available for the initial volume.

    HC Wonder Woman: the Golden Age Omnibus vol 1: all the stories
    Wonder Woman: The Golden Age vol 1: the scheduled stories up to and including Wonder Woman #3.
    Wonder Woman: The Golden Age vol 2: the second half of the scheduled stories, from Sensation Comics #15.

    They can probably also be ordered from your favourite comic book outlet. The latter two volumes are also available digitally from Comixology.

    Well it sounds far more interesting than the going in circles arguments that have been a frequent thing of late. How about saturday since it gives a couple days breathing room after the latest issue?

    That's why I had the poll!

    Another question is if we should make individual threads for each week, or use this thread only. I think I'd prefer a unitary thread, but have no strong feelings either way.

    I have no strong preference either way on that. A single thread is fine so long as therese someone establishing the start of the newest reading every week
