DC’s timeline has skipped 5 years into the future. Now everyone is Batman. The whole universe is Gotham. Nothing but dark, grim, gritty vengance as far as the eye can see.
It’s not a good day to be a DC comics fan… Actually it’s never a good day to be a DC comics fan
Bad news that is in mediocre Superman/Wonder Woman book
nothing can be perfect
Me: DC doesn't represent women well.
Brother: The government or the comic books?
Me: Pick one.

—Laura Siegel Larson, daugther of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel interviewed by a Cleveland newspaper in August of 2012. Laura’s mother was Joanne Carter Siegel—the original model for Lois Lane. Joanne’s obiturary can be found here written by historian and Superman expert Bradley Ricca. http://comicsbeat.com/rip-joanne-siegel/
Mr. Ricca’s research goes into further depth on the creation of both Superman and Lois Lane in his recent book entitled: Superboys: The Amazing Adventures of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. It can be purchased here and it’s an excellent, informative read based on factual information and extensive research. http://www.amazon.com/Super-Boys-Adventures-Shuster-Creators-ebook/dp/B009E7QC2A
Friendly reminder that Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster sold Superman to DC for $130.
Friendly reminder that if you buy Superman/Wonder Woman #1 tomorrow or support the book in any way you are contributing to the post-lawsuit humiliation of the Siegel family by taking it a step farther and contributing to the final “nail in the coffin” disrespect to the creators of Superman and a relationship that they NEVER wanted, NEVER supported and truly believed was at odds with the conception of their creation.
You are essentially supporting a move that took the Siegel family after it was already down and then kicked them down the street out of spite. Because it wasn’t enough that they were humiliated in the lawsuit. The humilation had to be taken further by the company gleefully celebrating Superman’s 75th anniversary this year with a total and complete “screw you” to the family.
Friendly reminder that if you support Superman/Wonder Woman in any way you are also contributing to the total and complete disrespect to the Marston family who brought Wonder Woman to women in the United States at the height of World war 2 with the intention that she would act as the female answer to Superman but NEVER be the romantic partner of Superman. Yin and Yin. Not Yin and Yang. On the contrary, Diana was given a human male in her own narrative that upheld the themes and ideals of her story. Look it up.
Friendly reminder that some things come with a price. And this price is pretty steep. The total and complete disrespect and “screw you” to the people who created Superman and Wonder Woman.
Congrats to all involved. Just out of curiosity, what is the price on integrity these days? You can try to justify it all you want but these are the facts, kids.
Earlier this evening I posted about how writer Mike Barr pitched a Wonder Woman Beyond digital comic to DC Comics but “nobody had any interest.”
Since then I was told by DC Comics PR that there might be something on the horizon for Wonder Woman in digital:
But while Mike Barr never got any interest - Derek Fridolfs did get some interest in bringing Wonder Woman into the Beyond Universe. And his pitch is very interesting.
Especially if you like this.
Fuck Superman/Wonder Woman, Damn DC Comics
