Though I missed the initial announcement about this somehow, it’s better late than never because today is “Wonder Woman Day” and being celebrated across the country at participating comic book shops, bookstores and libraries. Think of it like “Batman Day” but only aimed at the famous Amazonian Princess Diana who now stars in her own feature film which opened up yesterday in theaters everywhere. I was tied up with Book Expo yesterday and today is Gretsch Day for me, so I am not going to get to see the film until some time next week but back to “Wonder Woman Day”. I think this is the first one of its kind and I hope that they keep on doing this since it gives the fans of Wonder Woman a chance to celebrate how awesome she is as a comic book character.
Much like the “Batman Day” there are some free comics to be had while supplies last. I hope that I can get my hands on these as well for my collection and perhaps a few to giveaway to our fans of the character and medium. The first title is more for the younger readers and a recommendation for those with children in the 7-10 or so range.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t have much to add outside of how much I love stuff like this since it helps keep the interest in the comic book medium on the high side. Movies like “Wonder Woman” do the same thing and help raise the number of women reading comics up a little bit more which is never a bad thing. Considering how good the movie opened yesterday I think we might have a promising direction for the DC Extended Universe at long last. I’ll have a non-spoiler review of the film a few days after I see it and now its up to you to get to the comic store and help support this awesome idea.
The websites below will lead you to some interesting information but be advised that the movie one will have significant plot spoilers on it.
