I don’t consider myself an artist, but most of my friends are, and I’m married to one. Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of behavior that ranges from awkward to outright unacceptable. Here are some dos and don’ts to ensure that your experience with an artist is a good one for both parties. This is…

During the last few days I’ve been asked about two Wonder Woman items a number of times. The possible new creative team is one and I’ll be putting together some thoughts on that. Second, is my reaction to this post on CBR, "My 10 Year-Old Daughter Couldn’t Care Less About Wonder Woman."
It’s a good read so go take a look. She notes that Wonder Woman is not pervasive as a role model for girls in pop culture is absolutely true. She hasn’t had a TV show in 35 year; has never a big screen movie; she has had not ever had a kid friendly comics that focus exclusively on her. And there are so few kid’s toys that feature Wonder Woman that I have written entire posts on them when they show up. By contrast if I did that for, say, Batman there would be an entire blog devoted to it. Oh wait, there is one.
And I absolutely agree with the writer’s concern about her daughter not caring about Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is a great character for girls - powerful, wise, smart and, when written correctly, one who chooses peace over war and love over hate. One who fights for good and equality. Plus she has an invisible plane. Who wouldn’t want to be like her?
Obviously this little girl does.
So I have to ask, “so why isn’t there a Wonder Woman all-ages comic?”
You absolutely need to look at this entire blog post. It’s both intimidating and inspirational.
