DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass. This is a feminist site. Deal with it.
"... just a dreadful little site that just basically compiles lists." - poster/DC Comics forum
"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth

Superman/Wonder Woman: Boning and Flying!

So yesterday DC announced that Wonder Woman was getting a second book for the first time in 61 years. YAY!

Oh, it’s in a book with Superman. That will focus on the couples’ relationship.

I thought Zack Smith’s comment was spot on:

So what will this book be about? The writer has been busy answering questions on Twitter including this one

But what does that mean? Oh, you know what it means!

UPDATE: Charles Soule has told me that the the original post which only  included the second screen cap put his comment out of context. I am therefor including the entire conversation. 

The other participant, Josh Flanagan, has claimed he was “making a sarcastic joke”.

Oh my.

The reaction to the book has been mixed although the people who don’t like MY thoughts on it have been quite clear because they’ve been all over me in the comments, Twitter and in comics forums. 

In the end, of course, it’s all about sales. And apparently DC Comics has decided that feminist icon or not Wonder Woman is in the end best presented as the girlfriend of someone and both boning and flying their ways into your hearts and wallets.
