Suicide Squad Review
This review has spoilers, small and large. You were warned. I’m writing this a few hours after having seen the film, so that it is still fresh, but I’m probably not going to post it for a while.

Where is Wonder Woman at 70?
Next month marks the 70th anniversary of the first appearance of Wonder Woman. She is one of DC comics Trinity, that is their best of the best, biggest, toughest and, in theory at least, most popular flagship characters. Like all comic book characters with such a long history, Diana has gone through many iterations overContinue reading “Where is Wonder Woman at 70?”
