SDCC 2017: Don’t Have A Badge?

San Diego Comic-Con is an annual heart breaker for a lot of geeks. The convention grows bigger each year but there is a limited amount of badges available for purchase to the public. Tears are wept, blood is shed, as thousands attempt to get their hands on these precious SDCC passes only to be denied. IT IS A CRUEL GAME FOR OUR FRAGILE HEARTS.

She represents women in the super hero world and today, some of us here at Defective Geeks talk consider her lack of presence in popular media (i.e. blockbuster summer movies) a very important topic of discussion. On our podcast, we’ve questioned why every time a network attempts to create a new Wonder Woman television show, it is canceled before it ever airs. We’ve questioned why it’s so hard for writers to bring her back to life in her own standalone series or movie. As we eagerly await what will happen to the character in the next Superman/Batman movie by Zack Snyder, I was sent this book called Wonder Woman Unbound: The Curious History of the World’s Most Famous Heroine by author, Tim Hanley.
