Narrator: Hey, that’s the name of the blog.
Okay, I’ve had a busy couple months, spending April arguing with Superman/Wonder Woman fans (who are just bafflingly pleased with the franchise changes right now) and May on vacation, but I will start this blog up again.
It was just a little bit of fun with old comics at first but then he popped back up in the modern stuff. I don’t have a ton of modern material, but I have more than I expected. Still no Wonder Woman sightings since that little hospital bit in the JMS run. But he’s pretty much the leading character in Justice League at the moment and with Ame-Comi Girls we have the first WW AU I’ve seen since The Blue Amazon that uses him. (He is adorable in that and drawn by Amanda Connor.)
And I am surprisingly pleased by Justice League, it’s like Johns took the three main versions of Steve from pre-Crisis, emphasized the common elements, threw away the annoying bits, and kept the slightly different traits as surfacing depending on the social situation.
The reviews I’ve seen mostly love him and this take seems to have made even the hardcore Steve haters quiet.
So, sorry for neglecting this blog so badly, especially now.
In the meantime, this entire scene from Justice League Dark #9 (J. Lemire and M. Janin) is pretty freaking amusing. Of course, watching any character talk to John Constantine is rather amusing.
