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”

Wonder Woman #76 Review: Mother and Child Reunions

After the suitably epic, oversized Wonder Woman #75, this issue takes a break from battle and revelations in favour of something a little quieter. It’s a nice pause after the action and adventure of the past few outings, a well deserved breather as characters adjust to their new realities and the opportunities they present. ThereContinue reading “Wonder Woman #76 Review: Mother and Child Reunions”

Wonder Woman #75 Review: The Battle for Themyscira

I don’t usually start my reviews with a spoiler, but if you read last week’s issue then you knew this was coming: Diana, princess of the Amazons, has returned to Themyscira. Which at first glance doesn’t seem like a huge deal until you remember that, apart from “Year One,” she hasn’t been to her realContinue reading “Wonder Woman #75 Review: The Battle for Themyscira”

Wonder Woman #74 Review: Reunited, And It Feels So Good

Some major things are happening in this week’s issue of Wonder Woman, leading to even more major things for Wonder Woman #75 in two weeks’ time, presumably. Quarter century issues are a big deal these days, maybe because so few comic books make it to a 25th issue, much less a 50th or a 75th.Continue reading “Wonder Woman #74 Review: Reunited, And It Feels So Good”

Wonder Woman #73 Review: Through a Glass Darkly

I love an alternate universe. Whether it’s slight changes in a different dimension or a full on evil mirror universe, I’m instantly intrigued. I am here for bizarre multiverse fun all day long. However, alternate universes haven’t been great for Wonder Woman. I’ve never been a big fan of the evil Earth Three, the CrimeContinue reading “Wonder Woman #73 Review: Through a Glass Darkly”
