* Not a criticism, but I was very surprised that JLA: A League of One didn't make the cut! It's by far my favorite WW story, like, by a lot. I have to ask, was the omission because you guys haven't read it, or because you don't think much of it? I'd love to hear what you think, either way.
Yes, you're right about this. I have read it. The cover and title say it all!
Because i'm an insufferable and incurable egomaniac, i'm going to take your meaning to be that i'm right, it's a fantastic Wonder Woman story, just look at how badass and brave she is on the cover, as opposed to i'm right, you didn't think much of it, just look at how she's portrayed on the cover as a warrior and not a peacemaker
What a wonderful episode, pun pun. Wonder woman being my absolute favorite character, ever since seeing the justice league cartoon, makes me also so depressed with how the situation in the current comics are like. What strikes me is how important the upcoming movie is going to be to every one who doesn't follow comics, and it's gonna again be really depressing if the current tripe influences the movie Wondie. I want to thank everyone for the recommendations so i can maybe backlog instead of picking up the current stuff.
Also if anyone loves Ghibli movies check out "Sanzoku no Musume Rōnya" a 3D tv show of the Swedish childrenbook Ronja rövardotter

Thanks so much from all of us!
We all share your trepidations regarding the coming film, but are happy that you'll be checking out some more classic portrayals of our favorite Amazon, and please let us hear your thoughts after you've read them!
Hooded Utilitarian had been dissecting the new WW book by Lepore. I cant wait to read the book so I can dive into their analysis.
I've been reading the WW Showcase books and hated the Emma Peel era. It's not any classical presentation I'm familiar with; it's certainly fun but not a WW story.
The debate on Hooded Utilitarian (particularly in the comments under the posts) is continuing one that began on a list serv of academics a couple weeks ago. The people on that list serv come from all different disciplines, so what's being argued is in some ways less about Lepore's book and more about how people were trained to come at these kinds of subjects from different points of view and with different methods. Noah Berlatsky, the editor of Hooded Utilitarian, has a book coming out in January called "Wonder Woman: Bondage and Feminism in the Marston/Peter comics, 1941-48."

What a great history lesson on Wonder Woman!Think i'm gonna listen to it again as soon as i got the time.
I can't say that i've read a lot of Wonder Woman, only the Azzarello/Chiang run up till issue 24 or so and that amazing Brave and the Bold issue that was talked about on the show, but i've always found her very interesting so i definitely would want to read more some day, especially the Rucka run, since he's one of my favourite writers.
If only there was some kind of monthly subscription service like Marvel Unlimited, but for DC books, so i could get caught up to that stuff and more.I would love that!
You're going to love it, but it will end up costing you money, because I guarantee that it will send you scurrying to pick up some of the "Chronicles" that contain the original Marston/Peter stories!
Bob, my wallet hurts whenever I listen to The Missfits or Talking Comics. It's used to it by now
It's only because we care!
There isn't enough time in life to be reading bad comics, so we try to point everyone toward the good stuff!
(Boy, could that come off as arrogant; I hope you all know that I'm kidding...well...kinda; there isn't any reason to read books that you don't enjoy, so we just hope that our two cent on the matter helps make decision-making easier! rrr)

And guys, GUYS!!!! I watched the 2011 Wonder Woman pilot.... They turned her into a torturer!!!!
I would guess that you're referring to that scene where instead of using the golden lasso to extract information, "Wonder Woman" breaks a helpless man's arm? Perhaps the saddest moment in a very sad exercise!
CB just recently went back over Frank Miller's Batman and Robin, just gonna put this here
There's just too much to say about this. I almost feel badly for the writer, who seems to think that such a great character must be full of hate in order to presume herself equal to men. And I almost feel badly for the artist, who seems to think that a woman's head, one of her breasts, her waist, and one of her calf muscles are all about the same size.

Guys, I was talking to @tony in the Best Of thread and I thought I should post it here too. Have you guys heard of JL8? It is a web comic series about the Justice League as 8 year olds. It is brilliant!! And they capture Wonder Woman perfectly for me. You should check it out. Here is one of my favourite panels:
I just listened to this podcast. I have to say I was never really a fan of wonder woman outside of how she was portrayed in Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. In those show she had an arc where she went to Hades and It was brilliant. Other than that Wonder Woman was never really my cup of tea. From listening to this I have to say I am going to get the Sensation Comics Run and giving here a try.

This was one of my favorite Missfit episodes! I'm definitely a new Wonder Woman fan. I just read all of what has been released for Wonder Woman '77 last week & I'm really enjoying it! I think the art is really beautiful & the story is holding my attention. I wish the issues were a little longer but other than that, a thumbs up! I'll continue on with the book. Is anyone else reading it? Thoughts?
