3 Chicks Review Comics Episode 010
Inside this episode! We review the second issue of Magus from 12 Gauge Comics – could it live up to the first great issue? We also review a done-in-one issue of Batgirl in which Bryan Q. Miller keeps us chuckling and Dustin Nguyen blows us away with his art – including some exceptional watercolor pages. Why can’t more comics have awesome watercolor pages? Let’s start a watercolor revolution I say! For our Hot Topic of the week we discuss the abysmal appearance of Wonder Woman in Superman #708 in which Wonder Woman’s origin story becomes “I saw Superman be a hero once.” That’s right the origins of the trinity are now “falling pearls”, “crashed spaceship” and “I saw Superman once”. OY. The problems with this are legion but are especially damning thanks to our good friends context and representation (or lack thereof). I’m up for CHICK OF THE WEEK and I pick a completely badass up and coming young female artist that is impressing us right and left (including this week!). Also, everyone’s pick of the week!
Crazy Wonder Woman links!: Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman, and Wonder Woman! Wonder Woman being inspired by a sandwich, and Wonder Woman set to the Wind Beneath My Wings lyrics. Also, Wonder Woman’s Mac Collection, Wonder Woman’s Pop Up Mac Store in NYC, and again, with more pictures, Wonder Woman’s cool video.
