If you were a follower of the Heretic’s Blog, I’m sure you know by now that I’ve moved! Blogger was just too frustrating and didn’t allow me to do what I wanted to do. Wordpress has many more options and is a lot easy to use. I know this blog is going to have some difficulty getting back to what the Heretic’s Blog was, but I have no fear that things will pick up very quickly.
As a way of kicking off Heretical Jargon, I’m posting a brand new Wonder Woman Wednesday with this incredible panel by Aaron Lopresti from Wonder Woman #25 during Gail Simone’s time on the title.
I came across this ridiculous article at Topless Robot title “10 Reasons Why No One Cares About Wonder Woman.” I read through it and it’s basis for argument is founded in the golden age of comics which the author of this article obviously cares nothing for. The list went on to discuss how Wonder Woman’s costume hasn’t changed since the time of her inception, (which definitely isn’t true) and how her stories and supporting characters really aren’t that interesting.
Now I’ll be the first to admit that Wonder Woman has certain characteristic that are quite hokey. However, with the standard set by Greg Rucka and Gail Simone now, I don’t think anyone can say that Wonder Woman is a bad and uninteresting superhero. In fact I would say she’s one of the best Superheroes in modern comic book folklore.
This photo should remind us all that not only Is Wonder Woman an amazing superhero with that feminine power that defines her so well, but she’s also the coolest and most confident!
Happy Wonder Woman Wednesday!
