OH LOOK AT THAT THE 1960S
AND SHE’S IN COMMAND GOLD FUCKERS.
She’s not in Medical blue, a caretaking, feminine role.
Those in Gold were either OFFICERS, NAVIGATORS, PILOTS, TACTICAL OFFICERS, or WEAPONS SPECIALISTS.
Shame how the reboots have messed it all up.
Why pay attention to history when lens flares.
So today I’m buying my first issue of Wonder Woman in the new 52 in a long time. It is a villain’s issue featuring Cheetah and it is written by John Ostrander with art by Victor Ibanez Ramirez. Why I will buy a comic for Ostrander should be pretty easy to figure out.
Anyway, the issue has one of the best Wonder Woman panels ever which is just ready made for a Meme. And here is that panel:
And here is what I did with it:
Oh there’s more …
Cartoonist Rich Stevens of Diesel Sweeties reached out to WIRED when he heard we planned to report on the PAX incident. “It’s just so disappointing to see people I’ve known since we were all new and broke turn out to be such tone-deaf, old man bullies. He’s Rush Limbaugh with tattoos. I could get over the original comic if they’d just moved on or apologized, but they had to make merchandise out of rape just to poke back at people and then encourage fans to wear it to a convention that supposedly has pro-woman policies,” said Stevens.
“It’s like he never got the point of growing up having been bullied as a kid. You’re supposed to get older and not repeat it … I wish more people in our field would be open about this, but I think there is a lot of social and economic pressure not to be… I really want to let them know that not everyone in webcomics is scared to stand up to them.”….
Being an adult is about recognizing that the right to say something doesn’t make it okay to say. It’s about recognizing that you are not the only person with feelings and opinions. It’s about understanding power differentials and the difference between criticism and bullying, and learning to examine and be accountable for your own actions and their consequences. It’s about caring more about not harming other people than about whether their subsequent upset inconveniences you. It’s about being decent as well as being right.

In a posting to JH Williams III’s website late Wednesday night, the acclaimed artist and his Batwoman co-writer W. Haden Blackman announced that due to what they described as a preponderance of “eleventh-hour changes” to stories that had been planned a year or more in advance, they’re walking off the book. Among the grievances alleged by Williams and Blackman was publisher DC Comics’ refusal to allow principal characters Batwoman (aka Kate Kane) and her fiancé Maggie Sawyer to get married.
Asked to expand on the marriage note, Williams said the following via Twitter: “Not wanting to be inflammatory, only factual — We fought to get [Kate and Maggie] engaged, but were told emphatically no marriage can result.” He added, “But must clarify— [the decision] was never put to us as being anti-gay marriage.”

EXTREME BATMAN: THE EXTREMES
Batman is a SOLO avenger of the NIGHT, lurking in his DARK AND SUPER COOL BATCAVE where he can BROOD with his MUSCLES. In this issue, Batman’s pet hamster, the last remaining member of the Batfam, meets a grisly end at the hands of D-List…
Hey, DC Comics, she’s not just yours. She’s also ours. Enough.

Removing Helena B. from continuity; that was bad. Changing Zee’s look and personality…that hurt.
But it’s the way Diana has been (mis)treated that validates my decision to walk away from DC.
But, most of all, the current storytelling choices at DC Comics seem to be blind to what they have in Wonder Woman. She’s quite possibly the most famous fictional women on the planet. Instead, they keep trying to put her in this box where she’s “more relatable” to men by giving her “daddy issues,” and making her younger and sexier, and having the uber-male of the DC universe sex her all up so her feminist cooties don’t show.
