We love Wonder Woman. We love watching female creators in the comic book industry have a chance to work with more and more popular titles and characters. Renae De Liz, known for her work with Womanthology and Lady Powerpunch, is currently writing and drawing a 9-issue mini-series called The Legend of Wonder Woman.
The series will focus on the Amazon princess’ childhood, before she was known as Wonder Woman.
The series begins with a brief look into Hippolyta’s past and the creation of Themyscira. There are even pages dedicated to Diana’s “birth.” The trailer indicates that the book will end with Diana as an adult and taking on the superhero mantle (watch the video below).

Listen in now and find out more about the future of the comic industry!
Created by the most charming men in comic books, Mike Wellman (writer) and Rafael Navarro (artist), Guns A’Blazin’ kicks off it’s book tour at The Comic Bug on September, 2015. Manhattan Beach’s number one comic book store was party central with live music, tons of comic books, nachos, drinks and of course, the geeks (and those associated with the self-proclaimed geeks).

On Valentine’s Day, I made my way to the Marvel Experience while it was at Del Mar, California. This comic book geek playground consists of 7 domes, the largest one hosting several character inspired “training” stations. Most of it were video game stimulators, like learning how to fly like Iron Man or smashing robots as the Incredible Hulk. There are two stations that were more physical — the Spider-Man wall climber and the Black Widow agility test.
