    My friend, Anthony (who will be a member here), posted this on his FB page. I think it's an amazing piece of publicity: a dramatic reading of the first issue of Wonder Woman from 1942.

    I am going to try to attend, and the events in the Fringe Festival tend to be okay with people video taping them, so if I can I will and post here. Should be a blast!

    Great, Delta! And welcome!

    Why am I putting exclamation points on everything?! I've been doing it for days!

    I can't STOP! :)

    I dont have any articles but I saw quite a few really great Wonder Woman costumes at SDCC.
    I just felt they deserved kudos for their fine work.

    I was browsing through an op-shop the other day, and picked up the following:

    The Further Adventures of Wonder Woman, edited by Martin H. Greenberg, a Bantam Book printed around 1993. It's got 8 short prose stories using mostly the Perez canon, by authors Elizabeth Ann Scarborough, Henry Slesar, Karen Haber, Will Murray, Mindy Newell, Edward Wellen, Joey Cavelieri, and Pamela Sargent.

    Fun!

    Someone over at the DC forums posted this music video.

    It's a Korean pop video where the lead singer turns into WW several times. Very cute.

    Speaking of Korean and Wonder Woman, this was a Korean tv show based on our gal.

    In the season finale of Nurse Jackie (amazing show), one of the characters gets fired so he goes out and gets drunk (there are other reasons too, but I don't want to spoil) he comes back into the hospital and his old boss starts yelling at him to leave. He puts up his arms in the WW pose and says "keep shooting bullets at me, I have magic bracelets!'

    It was so odd and random, even my non-comic reading boyfriend caught the reference.

    The other month, I was at the library. It was, without a doubt, the best day the library will ever have. Why, you ask?

    Male kid 1, around 7: I'm Ben! -fakes shooting lasers at Male kid 2-
    Male kid 2, around 8: I'm -mumbles something that I can't hear, shoots at Female kid 1-
    Female kid 1, around 8: -stands there-
    Male kid 2: LIE DOWN YOU'RE DEAD I SHOT YOU!
    Female kid 1, yelling really loudly with the last word: NOPE, I'M WONDER WOMAN AND SHE CAN DO ANYTHING.

    They then fought for a minute until I told them that yeah, Wonder Woman could take whatever he shot at her, and then they quit playing.

    Bless you, JLU and your spinoff comics.
