Today chaila returns to talk about good starting points if you're interested in reading more Wonder Woman comics


One of the amazing things about discovering Wonder Woman is that there are 75 years of stories about her! So much to read! The downside, of course, is that there are 75 years of stories about her. So much to read.

Luckily, I am incapable of passing up the opportunity to tell people about Wonder Woman stories I love, so here are one fan’s Wonder Woman comics recommendations. (Updated from the last time I did this.)

My personal essential reading list )

Some other good entry points and recent comics )

In conclusion, comics are confusing, especially with a character like Diana, who has such a long and varied history. I’m happy to answer questions about availability/collections/where-the-heck-to-even-start, or anything related to Wonder Woman comics. There’s some great stuff in these comics, just waiting for you to read them!

Today we present a wonderful Wonder Woman post from Diana super-fan chaila.


I will state my biases up front and acknowledge that as a veteran of being a fan of Wonder Woman on the internet, I was pretty determined to like Wonder Woman from the moment it was announced. I am thrilled and relieved that it has not only exceeded my expectations, but also has apparently escaped the crushing weight of being the first female-led superhero movie and become a critical and commercial success. Diana has a movie!



Many reviews have already covered a lot of what I loved about the movie: Gal Gadot’s performance, the refreshing neutrality of the gaze, the Amazons, the fight scenes, the Amazons in the fight scenes, General Antiope, and the simple narrative power of centering a woman in a story like this. Other reviews have pointed out its obvious failings, particularly the lack of significant roles--or even names--for any women of color, and the treatment of disability.

What I want to talk about is Diana.

What one does when faced with the truth is more difficult than you’d think. )

Today, we present a fantastic guest post about the newest "Super" show in town - Supergirl. Our guest poster, chaila, is a vidder, fangirl and heroine addict who has previously written posts for Lady Business about Wonder Woman, Sarah Connor and feminism in Pacific Rim. We love her words and are so excited to have her at the blog today.


Internet, like many of you, I have been waiting with bated breath for Supergirl, and now it's here and I'm so happy!

Supergirl flying

This is a squee post based on the first three episodes of Supergirl on CBS. It's probably risky to write a squee post after only three episodes of anything, but I'm going to do it anyway. Note that this is not a post about the ways it's not perfect, though of course it isn't. There has already been a lot of discussion about those things. This is a post about some of the choices the show is making and some of the things I appreciate the show trying to do. It's a post about the parts of Supergirl that make me really, really happy.

This post contains capslocks and gifs, because that is just how I feel about Supergirl!

Some words about Supergirl, most of them are 'YAY' )

Welcome!

What's with your subtitle?


It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
