I have recently joined a comic book podcast called The Harbinger. Part of joining this podcast was actually buying comics every week and I have been doing that. I love it. My partnership with The Harbinger happened to coincide with DC’s relaunch of 52 of their titles, so that has been my jumping off point…
Harbinger fan and friend Kelly Turnbull (Coelasquid, Manly Guys Doing Manly Things) recently shared her two cents on a controversy related to the rebooted Wonder Woman that goes beyond the comparatively petty back-and-forth argument over her pants:
In a world of angry/stoic/ominous heroes, a nubile stripper (who’s supposed to be an Amazon) seems a little out of place.
With the help of Balacktus’ herald, Silver Smurfer, our heroes hunker down and tackle the tough issues of today - and some awesome ones, too! Fear Itself (and tie-ins including Herc, Secret Avengers, Fearsome Four, The Deep, and Deadpool or something), the current lot of (the) Hulk(s) and his pockets, Jonathan Hickman’s three Marvel books (Secret Warriors, S.H.I.E.L.D. and Future Foundation), Flashpoint and DC’s impending reboot, X-Men: First Class, and more!
Music: “Casting Shadows” by Riff Cannon (and the Thor OST. Also Billy Joel.)
Black Canary, Wonder Woman, Zatanna, and Batgirl start up their own all-girl rock band à la The Runaways in this illustration by Cliff Chiang. He will be auctioning off the original black and white art at Heroes Con next weekend.
YES YES YES YES YES
This is cool and all, but…I’m assuming that’s Barbara? How did they get the bass drum to work?
