I have been a DC girl since the very beginning. When first picking up comic books I was too young to relate to and appreciate Marvel’s characters at the time. Then later after puberty I enjoyed a lot of Top Cow comics for the heroines they carried like Fathom, Lara Croft, Aphrodite IX and Madam Mirage.
Of the new 52 currently following Justice League which has many of my favorite characters. For story arcs I know I am going to love, I tend to wait for the compilations such as with Aquaman Volume 1 coming out in September. Other runs with action and interplay well worth the wait include J. Michael Straczynski’s Thor and Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men. Still have a couple more volumes of ‘Y the Last Man’ to read – I am savoring those slowly. I really miss ‘Secret Six’ and ‘Zatanna’, which were my most consistently satisfying monthly reads. Never heard of ‘Secret Six’? Go out and get ‘Depths’ issues #8-14 written by fabulous Gail Simone with the art of the very wonderful Nicola Scott!
One last question what is your favorite Wonder Woman story arc would you consider to be the best?
I will always have a special place in my heart for George Perez’s reboot that first attracted me to Wonder Woman. When I saw that beautiful montage cover which looked like my mother kicking butt and had my name on it, Perez, I thought this book was made just for me. I was raised by a single mom who had many sisters(eight aunts total) so an epic tale of amazing women culminating in them passing down wisdom to a little girl, filling her with this incredible sense of purpose, just blew my mind. I read and reread that issue every year until I was eighteen, it became my manifesto.
