Here’s some things from around the Internets that may be of interest to readers of this blog:
Noah Berlatsky of the Hooded Utililarian has a piece on the new 52 Wonder Woman in the Atlantic. I don’t agree with all of it but it’s an interesting read. The comments are particularly fascinating as someone seems to have wandered off the #Ineedmasculismbecause tag of twitter.
The lack of black writers at both DC and Marvel is the topic of a powerful essay by Comics Alliance editor Joe Hughes. I’m happy to see CA is continuing to address issues on gender and race under his regime. I’m sad, but not surprised, to see the level of dumbness these articles attract in the comments.
I’m all for Wonder Woman getting mentioned in non-comics outlets and not that I wouldn’t be open to Beyonce as Wonder Woman but but this article on Beyonce Auditioning as Wonder Woman during the Super Bowl has to be the silliest article I’ve read this week. And don’t read the comments.
The sales of some of those new female led titles are not that good. Brett White discusses on CBR. I’ll just add that if you are someone who has bemoaned the lack of female creators and characters in comics and you’re illegally downloading these new titles you need to rethink your strategy.
As born and bred Bostonian it was fund to read about superheroes and their connection to Boston.
