@Gail - what game system do you have? And what are you playing now?
I am a Wii only person and I am trying to finish "The Conduit" and we find time for MarioKart Wii online play every day.
Hi! My name is Jason, I work in a local awards company where I design and engrave plaques, trophies and signs.
I've been a comic book fan/collector for nearly 30 years now, and it all started with seeing Lynda Carter do her Wonder Spin on the 2nd season of the TV show right before I entered Kindergarten.
My love of the character sparked my interest in reading, especially comics, and helped to start off my comics collection, and near complete collection of WW dolls and figures.
I've only been onlline for about a year now, and the DC Comics board was the only one I've posted on up until now. I'm very happy to be a part of this new forum and I see it as a positive alternative for many fans who have a love for WW.
I especially like seeing that this forum is here, at CBR, since I refer to this site daily. I may not post everyday, but I'll be here.
I am Nightforce, Ms. Simone knows me quite well. She knows how much I respect and love her work. I live in somewhere in the States LOL
As for Wonder Woman. Love her. I love all heroes but Wonder Woman has a real special place. With that said I respect every writers rendition/version of Wonder Woman.
I have read Kurt, Jodi, JTorres, Alan and Greg's version fo Wonder Woman. I never had a problem with any of them. As a reader I come to learn to at least appreciate what every writer brings to the table for her as a character whether we love it or just tolerate it.
It is great to see that JTorres and Mark Waid has chimed in. JTorres LOVE your Wonder Woman as well!!! What's new??
I also want to take the time to apologize to all writers who have to put up with less than rspectable fans. It is not right at all for the writers to put up with that. As a matter of fact the fans shouldn't act like that either. It is ashame. I am ashamed to call myself a fan as well because I hate the baggage that comes with being called a "Fan".
Mrs. Simone I am very truly sorry that you had to put with all that crap from the fans on the other board and hopefully your experience here will be better.
My respect goes out to you writers!!!
PS Wonder Woman KICKS MAJOR BOOTY!!
Gail Plays video games too???? Now THAT is awesome!
I am playing Arkam Asylum for the PS3 and it is really good if not great!!!
Blake Petit, high school English teacher, writer-in-training, and geek pundit. I love Wonder Woman for several reasons -- first of all, a general love of Greek mythology and stories that play with different aspects of it. Second, I like exactly the major complaint I hear from people -- she's a "female Superman." Well... no, she's not. Okay, she's got a similar power set, but she's much more of a warrior, she's an aristocrat, she's a study in contrasts. The best Wonder Woman stories are the ones that examine those aspects of the character.
I make kids tv shows and read lots of comics.
I play city of heroes
I have met Mark Waid over a dozen times and still left no impression on him. I should change my cologne.
I want Wonder Woman to be awesome and I hope that you will do that.
Hi! My name is Sue and I'm a married (23 happy years), middle-aged comic book junkie, SF/Fantasy fan and gamer (RPGs) with no kids but two dogs (lab mix and a cairn terrier) and a tank full of dwarf seahorses. We all reside in south Jersey just outside of Philly.
Both the Husband and I have been collecting comics for over 30 years and our friends joke about how we can't get divorced because we'd never be able to sort out the collection between us. I've been a DC fan more than Marvel and the Hubby was the opposite when we met, so our collections dove-tailed nicely, but now I've converted him over and our DC titles out number the Marvel by a large margin :) Current estimate is 22,000+ books that occupy the back bedroom. The first time I ever bought comics I picked up two titles - Wonder Woman and JLA (cause WW was on the cover :) )
I've been a gamer since '76 and played just about every system put out in the 70s and early 80s, but I became a Champions/Hero System fan when it first came out in 82 or so. I was a founding member of the Hero Auxiliary Corps (HAC) and ran the Official Champions Tournament at GenCon and occasionally Origins for the first 15 years or so. HAC has since become Infinite Imaginations, Inc (III) and I've been honored to be the Grand Poohbah of this fine group of role players for over 20 years. I still run Champions at GenCon but have since passed the torch for the official tournament. I have dabbled a tiny bit in the RPG field (very tiny), having written an article or two for the Adventurers Club, contributed to 4th edition Champions and co-wrote and co-edited a Hero adventure module way back in the day.
I've also been an MMORPG player since I dunno when, starting with Ultima, moving on to Everquest 1 and 2, Dark Ages of Camelot, City of Heroes, WoW and other and currently split my time between Warhammer and Champions Online. In between games, I manage a research facility at a medical university.
I've been a WW fan for as long as I can remember and I'm thoroughly enjoying Gail's run on the book. Many thanks to her and others for this forum!

They would have a case if Maxima was Wonder Woman. Diana is not from another planet. She was born in our World. Diana has more in common with Captain Marvel than Superman.
I'm speed, aka Bound4olympus. Speed is my real name just to avoid any confusion. I was born in a suburb of Chicago and now live in Indianapolis. I'm a student by day and a thrill seeker by night. I've been a Wonder Woman fan since I was in diapers. Wonder Woman was my favorite show, and was always preempted by long running Cubs games which in my 4 year old mind was a travesty. I've been reading the book since I was 14. My favorite run (up until Gails) Was Bill Loebs run. He wrote a great and exciting Diana and created my other favorite character Artemis. I'm very excited to see where the next year of the book goes. Looking forward to many more awesome stories from my favorite comic book writer.
Wow...this rocks. Brand new folks AND some of my all-time favorites from other boards.
Black Canary owns your world.
My name is Michelle. I used to work in IT before leaving it all to be a stay at home mom and freelance writer. I chase my little girl around while balancing client work. I live with my husband, daughter and dog in the California Delta which is way at the edge of the SF Bay Area.
I have adored Wonder Woman since I was a little girl watching the Lynda Carter series. I do remember jumping off of the TV because I wanted to be like Wonder Woman. (I ended up spraining my ankle. I was 4.)
As a mom, I'm not too thrilled about most little girls' fascination with princesses. I find that most princesses are far too flowery, dainty and waiting for their prince to come. No, that's not what I want to teach my little one. But then I remember that Wonder Woman is a princess, one that I have always admired and adored, and am more than happy to share with my little girl.
I ended up falling in love with Wonder Woman all over again as an adult, when I began to collect comics around 2003 ~ 2004. I loved Rucka's run on WW and am adoring Gail's run as well. Oracle is another favorite character of mine and I loved Gail's BoP so when I found out she was given Wonder Woman I was absolutely ECSTATIC, like "YAYAYAY!!!!" in public happy. :)
I'm a longtime Wonder Woman fan and a female who loves comicbooks. Needless to say I'm on the internet because meeting people like me in the real world is a rarity.
