Deconstructing Comics: Emmet O'Cuana & I Talk Wonder Woman: Earth-One
Wonder Woman: A great, but difficult character, with one of the patchiest histories of any world-famous fictional icon.
William Moulton Marston's creation an icon of
feminism, an example of exploitation, or a confusing mix of both?
may not understand any better after hearing two white men talking about
Grant Morrison & Yanick Paquette's WONDER WOMAN: EARTH ONE and
the various problematic aspects it highlights of her history. (including
her years of humiliation at the misogynist hands of Robert Kanigher)
"Eternity in the company of Beelzebub, and all of his hellish instruments of death, will be a picnic compared to five minutes with me & this pencil." --E. Blackadder, 1789 Questionable
