It shouldn’t have taken this long. Wonder Woman, the first full-fledged female superhero, created in 1942 by Charles Moulton Marston (also the creator of the polygraph test, in case you didn’t know) and H.G. Peter and maybe one of the most recognized comic book icons in history should have gotten a live action, full-length, wide released film adaptation DECADES ago. But perhaps the world was not ready. Perhaps female-led superhero movie flops like Catwoman and Elektra held things back. But let’s be honest here. The fact that Barb Wire got a movie before Wonder Woman is just too embarrassing.

Injustice: Gods Among Us was only just the beginning. NetherRealm, the same video game studio that develops the Mortal Kombat series has yet another blockbuster Fighter franchise on their hands. Injustice delves into an alternate DC Universe where Earth’s greatest hero, Superman, becomes the type of tyrannical villain he was once sworn to oppose after he executes The Joker. The snowball effect of that event creates a world where our heroes and villains are drastically changed and the status quo of the DC Universe is flipped upside down. The first game’s story mode had the heroes of a more familiar Earth come to help Batman’s rebels battle Superman’s regime, but this new installment shows us the aftermath of that story. A new threat emerges as Brainiac (who is responsible for the destruction of Krypton in this reality) attacks Earth’s cities and enlists the world’s vilest menaces to aide him. Read more...

Great Hera! It is Wonder Woman's 75th Anniversary! The Amazing Amazon first appeared in All-Star Comics #8, the December 1941 issue. The character was created by William Moulton Marston, as well as both Marston's wife Elizabeth Holloway Marston and artist H.G. Peter. Both of the latter were not credited. The Marstons co-inhabitant Olive Byrne is credited as being the pattern for Wonder Woman's physical appearance. Marston patterned the character after the feminists of the day. One such example is that of Feminist Margaret Sanger. With the exception of a brief time in 1986, Wonder Woman's adventures have been continuing unabated for the entirety of the past 75 years!

I don’t even know where to begin with this review.  This is not the Wonder Woman so many people have grown to know and love.  I mean, it is and it isn’t. This book by Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette is a different creature. This book takes Wonder Woman back to her roots, to her creator’s ideas of submission and dominance. This book may not be for everyone, but it is worth a read to see the brilliant mind of Morrison at work and the breathtaking art of Paquette. Read more...

There are two DC Animated universes currently and while one is constantly covered and hailed (the more adult line containing Batman vs. Robin and Throne of Atlantis) I have also been watching the secondary more child friendly universe (containing JLA; Trapped in Time). This animated movie, Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts is the second in the second universe. However I am not sure this is entirely correct since there were no indications the universes are connected and Unlimited implies perhaps it is not. In any fashion it is done in the lighter style. As with any animated, direct to video release from DC in the last few years the expectations are high and the payoff in doubt until the reviews are in. I am just the chimp for the task. Read more...

photo 1First, I would like to say that I do not get to go to a lot of cons, so being able to go to Wizard World convention is a huge deal.  While it isn’t as prestigious as C2E2 or San Diego Comic Con, it is still fun and worthwhile for a busy fangirl that works three jobs. That being said, I had SO much fun!  I was only able to go two days. Friday I went as a worker for the Austin Books and Comics store. I helped pass out flyers and direct con goers to our booth. I was dressed as Wonder Woman and my coworker, Danni, was The Cheetah. We had a great time posing with other little Wonder Woman’s that would want to battle. We also got to meet fellow nerdy fashionista, Betty Felon! I have been a longtime fan of hers and it was amazing talking with her.  She was super sweet and down to Earth.  Read more...

Cat's Meow There is a show on Discovery/Animal Planet/BBC channel called Big Cat Diaries. It’s on really early in the morning and I have to admit I am addicted to it. There is something about watching the cats running in the jungle, on the marsh, or through the Savannah that is absolutely breathtaking. The fine folks who follow the cats on the show have named them. There is Half Tail the leopard and Snowy the cheetah who was a cub of Sarah. Then there is the lion pride. Read more...
