Great Hera! It's Wonder Woman day!

The birth of Wonder Woman - notes sent between William Moulton Marston and artist H. G. Peter show the genesis of the character . Meanwhile today is the 5th Annual Wonder Woman day - a Portland and Flemington, New Jersey event supporting Domestic Violence Programs. Not able to get over to Excalibur Comics or Comics Fusion to take part in the events or activities? There's still a few hours left in which you can take part by bidding on artwork online (previously).

The Whelk - You have to admit, it's a fantastic bassline.

I want any possible WW movie project to be just campy enough to use that as an end credit chaser.

Oh, awesome. Thank you for this Artw.

Oh, and apparently there's a new TV series on the way, by, um, the dude that created Ally McBeal.

He does funny lawyer shows, shouldn't he be doing She-Hulk?

Shout out to Donald Lee Feld - a.k.a. "Donfeld" - who designed the Lynda Carter costume. His credits also include Gladiator, Spaceballs, and They Shoot Horses, Don't They?.

I'm glad you made a Wonder Woman thread, Artw, because it gives me a chance to finally say how completely in love I am with robocop is bleeding's Wonder Woman reboot idea from a few months ago.

I would totally marry it, that's how much I love it, is all I wanted to say.

Kate Beaton's Wonder Woman is my favorite, because you just know that after fifty years of fighting for justice in a man's world, Wonder Woman would have the attitude of a waitress at the end of a day wearing bad shoes. I can't help but hear that dialogue in a New York or New Jersey accent.

Okay, this is just sad.

My favorite Wonder Woman artwork

You can't link that and not link the fantastic Wonderella strip.

Okay, this is just sad.

"Sad" doesn't quite describe it for me. I think the phrase you may have been looking for was: "Oh my God, what a huge piece of shit."

I think this is my favorite of the art up for auction.

I'd like to say "thanks" for the news about the new series, Artw, but I'm not sure that I wanted to know now that I've read the article. Diana McBeal: do not want.

In my world the lead role in the upcoming Wonder Woman movie is played by RuPaul. Who's in?

Awesome reboot concept, robocop is bleeding (and thanks for linking to it, maqsarian -- I missed it the first time around.) I'd sure as hell take that over Diana Prince as a superspy in a white jumpsuit assigned to track down Wonder Woman. *sigh*
