Wonder Woman 1984 Review: A Baffling, Discordant Sequel

I’m going to avoid spoilers here, but it’s going to be really hard. Spoilers are terrible of course, and I can discuss my feelings about the film without them. I’m not wrapped up in the specifics of the movie here, so much as the general confoundingness of it all. But there is one thing, oneContinue reading “Wonder Woman 1984 Review: A Baffling, Discordant Sequel”

The Best Wonder Woman Comics of All Time on Polygon

I’m back on Polygon today, and this time things are a little more controversial! I was asked to assemble a list of the best Wonder Woman comics of all time, and this is the result. First, know that I suffered for this. Enjoyably so, though. It was really fun to put this together! But soContinue reading “The Best Wonder Woman Comics of All Time on Polygon”

A Brief History of Wonder Woman in the 1980s on Polygon

With Wonder Woman 1984 set to hit theaters (and streaming in some countries) on Christmas Day, I had the pleasure of writing an article for Polygon on the state of Wonder Woman in the 1980s. The issue that would’ve been available in comics shops in December 1984 was Wonder Woman #323, and coincidentally it featuredContinue reading “A Brief History of Wonder Woman in the 1980s on Polygon”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, October 2020 Solicits – 17 Creators on 16 Books

Marvel’s post-lockdown ramp up continues to be surprisingly slow. They were cranking out nearly a hundred books a month before the virus shut everything down, and they’re just a little over half that currently, with fewer books this month than last. Female and non-binary creator representation has been even slower to bounce back, with severalContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, October 2020 Solicits – 17 Creators on 16 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, October 2020 Solicits – 22 Creators on 17 Books

DC’s post-lockdown roll out (I almost called it a post-pandemic roll out, but no, we’re still firmly in the middle of all of that) got off to a slow start in terms of female and non-binary creator representation, but the numbers are finally trending upward. The only question is, for how long? This month’s numbersContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, October 2020 Solicits – 22 Creators on 17 Books”

Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, September 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 12 Books

Marvel will continue to ease back into publishing this September, increasing their slate slightly while still remaining well below their regular output. It’s an understandable strategy given the state of the world, but one that resulted in terrible numbers for female and non-binary creators in August. The work of male creators was given top priority,Continue reading “Women & NB Creators at Marvel Comics, September 2020 Solicits, 21 Creators on 12 Books”

Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, September 2020 Solicits, 14 Creators on 11 Books

Well. Well, well, well. So DC’s first post-COVID hiatus solicits for August weren’t great for female and non-binary creators. The numbers were down noticeably, even accounting for the reduced slate as things slowly ramped up again. But, as I pointed out last time, these are unique circumstances, and things might get back to normal asContinue reading “Women & NB Creators at DC Comics, September 2020 Solicits, 14 Creators on 11 Books”
