In the Know

Because I like to keep you all 'in the know', as it were, when it comes to comic books, here's something that people are getting up in a bunch about.

If you're curious about that journal, it belongs to Greg Rucka, an extremely well-respected comic book writer. I heard about it through scans_daily, which is THE place to go if you're curious about any sort of comic books. It's a good place to be.

Anyway, chime in with your opinion if you want. I think that it was a remarkably short-sighted move on DC's part, though I don't think it was a calculated one by playboy. DC really does need to get on top of the ball with Wonder Woman and figure out what the hell they want to do with her. Because half the time, they bitch and whine about not having enough 'positive female role-models' and how they 'can't seem to hold onto female readers'. And half the time they treat Wonder Woman as a fetish model and think that if they just porn her up enough, she'll be popular.

You might guess which I think Wonder Woman should be.
