Wonder Woman Written by an Actual Woman!

After 66 years, Wonder Woman finally gets a female scribe, adding to a recent increase in comics geared toward women.

The cleavage and underwear stay, though. If she takes that bustier off, she loses her keep her male audience! Whamo!

Anyway, maybe the Amazons will be cooler.

Now that we're calling some comic books graphic novels, it seems okay to market to the breast-addled sex. "Marketing" meaning writing all-female comics and toning down the helpless female thing a little bit. Though I never got into comics myself, I'm always for toning down misogyny!

It's not gone yet, though...
