Give ‘Em Elle: Wonder Woman Is Queer, And That’s Amazing! Now Say It In The Comic


We seem to have missed a step somewhere. Just a few years ago, having a queer character in a superhero comic was a huge deal. There would be boycotts and mainstream news stories. And now we’re told that it’s totally not a big deal for Wonder Woman, the most important female superhero in history, and a third of DC Comics’ trinity, to be queer. It’s so not a big deal that you should have already known. It’s so not a big deal that it doesn’t even need to be directly stated in a DC comic, and in fact to do so would be clumsy and unnecessary.

But shouldn’t there have been a step in between? A moment when it was no longer forbidden for Wonder Woman to be queer, but not yet such a casual affair that to even state it in her comic would be passé? A moment when it would be appropriate to show Wonder Woman’s queerness in a comic book, rather than telling it in an interview?

Diana Meets Steve As ‘Year One’ Continues In ‘Wonder Woman’ #4 [Exclusive Preview]

WW featured

The Year One storyline in Wonder Woman is, at least to me, the most exciting part of Greg Rucka's return to the character. Sure, her origin has been told many times --- in fact Renae De Liz and Grant Morrison have both rewritten it just in the past year. But this take is important for two reasons: First, even though he's had a previous run on the book and is beloved by most Wonder Woman fans, this is the first time Greg Rucka has covered this ground. And secondly, this comes at a time when the ground needs to be covered. Check out an exclusive preview of issue #4!

Greg Rucka And Nicola Scott’s ‘Black Magick’ To Be Adapted For Television [SDCC 2016]


We're very quickly heading into a golden age of comic book television adaptations, not only with superhero shows such as Iron Fist (teased at a panel on Thursday) and Defenders (likewise), but with hit adaptations of indie properties like The Walking Dead and Preacher. Production companies are quickly learning that indie comics are a rich vein of longform storytelling just waiting to be tapped, and there's now a scramble to find the next hit.

Following on from the announcement that Rick Remender and Wes Craig's Deadly Class was heading to TV under Joe and Anthony Russo, another fan-favorite Image Comics series is heading to TV; Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott's Black Magick.

ICYMI: Wonder Woman Dates Women… Maybe?


Wonder Woman #2 is the first chapter of "Year One" by Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott, with colors Romulo Fajardo Jr. The whole issue alternates between scenes of a young Diana living on Themyscira and a young Steve Trevor in the military, leading up to the famous moment when they meet. But we learn a lot more about their lives before we get there, and that's led to a particularly strong fan reaction to Diana's life among the Amazons.

If You Loved ‘Captain America: Civil War’, Read These Comics Next


Captain America: Civil War is in cinemas now, and everyone’s raving about its impressive set-pieces, complex themes and snappy banter. Marvel Studios and the Russo Brothers not only managed to make possibly the best Captain America film (and the best Avengers film) so far, but they told an awesome, tightly-plotted story that never felt bloated despite the number of characters demanding the spotlight.

The Captain America franchise has always skewed somewhat more toward espionage thrillers than your average superhero series, similar in tone to the Jason Bourne series or the modern day James Bond films. If you loved Civil War and want to try some comics in a similar vein --- but you’ve already read Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting’s Captain America run --- we’ve compiled a list of five of the best independent comics to try next.

The Lesser Of Fourteen Evils: Greg Rucka And Michael Lark On ‘Lazarus’

Lazarus, Greg Rucka and Michael Lark

Greg Rucka and Michael Lark's Lazarus has been one of the most exciting and compelling stories on the stands since its debut in 2013. Set in a future where nations have been dissolved and rebuilt as a world ruled over by fifteen families, the story follows Forever Carlyle, who serves as her family's Lazarus --- a highly trained soldier who can't be permanently killed, no matter how hard her enemies try.

Now, with major changes set to come for the book when it returns --- and with the impending release of the first Lazarus Sourcebook next week --- ComicsAlliance spoke to Rucka and Lark about the process of building their world, the extremes they're going to in order to tell their story, and what we can expect when the next arc, "Cull," begins in June.
