    I agree with just about all of this, though, to be honest, I think it's also clear that the attempt to give these women agency was about as minimal as it could possibly be without disappearing...

    Sure, and one panel of standing silently in a circle and holding the lasso which Wonder Woman has tossed to Cheetah is better than nothing. Truly, it is; however minimal it may be, it's still a...

    I see Pinsir's point. In my opinion, sure, she can adventure in Africa, but when she does, it could be good to see her working with black African allies who make real impact. To me, the problem of...

    LOL at the idea of the boar as guest. And sure, she'd know it's not done in this culture--though maybe she just thought it would be nice to bring a bit of her culture with her. After all, it's not...

    I don't know about Max having made people forget Checkmate. But considering that Sasha has that scar around her eye and apparently also some kind of a cybernetic master, I'd guess now that more of...

    In that Word Balloon podast from just after Rebirth was announced, Rucka said this (around 75 or 76 minutes in, I think):

    “You know, Max is around in the New 52—he’s, he;s, around in this rebirth...

    Seems like there could be a rating between "great" an "average"--like maybe "good." In the absence of "good," I went with "great," four stars.I liked the gods as animals, and I thought Diana's and...

    And Sasha's connection--I think (after refreshing my memory via Wikipedia) that the last time Rucka used Sasha she has having her OMAC nanites extracted, so it seems likely he picked up more or less...

    For me, yes it was. There was always something I wanted to talk about in the Azzarello issues, and frankly, the controversial nature of that run always kept the arguments flowing around here. I had...

    I agree with your sentence that I've labelled [2], but not necessarily with [1], depending on how we define "advance." For sure, I don't think they're developing this more-traditional origin just to...

    They were on the decline before 2011, and I'm sure they're still not rising as much as the publishers need or want, but here are a couple of more recent news articles saying that comics, unlike other...

    What's "W3 CHO"? I feel like I should know, but nothing is coming to mind.

    Interesting that the Action 960 solicit says "Superman comes face-to-face with the woman who once loved him." He's not...

    Yep--I refreshed my memory of this yesterday after posting, and they were the owners of the Bar-L dude ranch in Texas.



    Agreed.

    For Marston, another extremely important reason was to show males how strong women can be and to teach them that it's OK to enjoy the adventures of female heroes and to follow female leaders.
