People often ask me why I like Wonder Woman, and while I can talk at length about iconic superheroes and female symbols of power, I think the bulk of my affection is due to the incredible skill of George Perez, Len Wein, and Greg Potter. Their relaunch of the character in 1987 had such an enormous impact on my perception of her, and more than that, on my understanding of her important role in the world.
This choice quote comes from Kotaku:
Alan and I have always resisted doing any sort of back-story to the Watchmen graphic novel — at various times it’s been suggested that we could do the Comedian’s Vietnam War Diaries or Rorshach’s journal, which we thought would be a bit dopey. But the precedent is, at the time the original comics came out, Mayfair games did a role-playing game that Alan helped write bits of, and it’s completely canon, so this game uses a lot of that less-well known material.
The story they got it from is here. Also of interest to comics fans: Len Wein, the book’s editor, is writing the game’s script. So that could be interesting, although he’s far from the first comics writer to do a script for a superhero video game.
