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”

Go Support the “Sally the Sleuth” Reprint Collection on iFundWomen!

Remembering Margot Kidder, A Remarkable Lois Lane and a Remarkable Woman

Margot Kidder was a spectacular Lois Lane. On the surface, it seems like a pretty straight forward role. Ace reporter, Superman’s girlfriend. Easy enough. But it’s a deceptively tricky part. There’s a difficult balance to it that’s so essential to the character. A good Lois needs to be a take charge, courageous reporter, brash andContinue reading “Remembering Margot Kidder, A Remarkable Lois Lane and a Remarkable Woman”

My Top 10 Superhero Comic Books of 2017

It’s been an interesting year for superhero comic books. DC’s been trucking along with “Rebirth,” telling a lot of fun stories in the mix. Marvel’s been more split, with half the line spending a considerable part of the year embroiled in weird Nazi/Hydra antics while several of the titles that avoided Secret Empire put outContinue reading “My Top 10 Superhero Comic Books of 2017”

Justice League Review: It Was Fine, I Guess? Not Good, But Not Awful

Justice League isn’t a terrible movie, and that in itself is a major achievement. Director Zack Snyder’s past two superhero outings were dour, unwieldy affairs that fundamentally misunderstood almost every character who appeared in them. Justice League is a much more conventional movie, leaner and even fun at times. It’s not great by any means.Continue reading “Justice League Review: It Was Fine, I Guess? Not Good, But Not Awful”

Remembering Len Wein, and his Reinvention of Catwoman

Legendary comic book creator Len Wein passed away yesterday at the age of 69. “Legendary” is no exaggeration either; the man co-created Wolverine, one of the most famous superheroes of all time. And if that wasn’t enough, he also co-created the bulk of the new X-Men that revitalized the franchise in the 1970s, including Colossus,Continue reading “Remembering Len Wein, and his Reinvention of Catwoman”
