    Default Discuss Robert Jones, Jr.'s second installment of WAR & PEACE!

    Bobby hits it out the park again!!

    Great article... insightful, detailed & fun.

    I think Wonder Woman has a great rogues gallery and I hope some comic writers peep this article and bring back/flesh out some of her villains.

    Check it out here: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?p...ticle&id=23187

    What do you all think?

    I think Gail wrote this weeks article.

    It says so at the top of the page
    "You can't trust them as poets either. The true poet is anonymous, as to his habits, but these boys have to look, act, and apparently smell like poets"
    Flannery O'Connor on the beats.

    I'm not sure what article you're talking about but today's Wonder of Wonders column was written by Robert:

    Cool article.

    Disagree with egg fu though.

    Did you guys read the awesomeness Grant morrison made him in 52?

    He was badass and menacing.

    Brilliant, as usual, Bobby! I think it's worth noting that Circe has demonstrated the ability to come back from the dead - which is why killing her isn't a wise course of action. Kill her, and she can just come back again. It's why you have to imprison her with moly.

    I also agree that Dr. Poison, Dr. Psycho, and Dr. Cyber all need more explorations into their pasts and motivations.

    Hey General!

    I totally took Morrison's Chang Tzu re-imagination into consideration when I was writing this article and still thought it was a bit of a yucky idea. So, Eggie got the thumbs down from me.

    I didn't write it...the blurb up front is permanently set with my name. We'll fix it, I hope!

    And this is Robert's SECOND installment, I believe, but MAN, what a great read. I LOVED this one, Robert!

    I liked your first column, but this one has a much bigger meaning and relevance.

    GREAT STUFF!

    I'm happy.

    Well, I was counting the Wonder Woman #35 review as well as the Secret Six #13 review. I know that one of them was not up on the main page -- I just figured it still counted toward being a Wonder of Wonders article.

    Man, I feel bad for CBR News. Nobody ever posts in his thread when it's a new Wonder of Wonders :(

    POOR CBR NEWS!

    Sheesh, Scotty. What's with drawing attention to that? I'm sure CBR News feels bad enough already.
