Did Warner Bros. License a Wonder Woman Sex Doll?

 

“Previews” is the monthly catalog for comic book stores and their fan-boy and fan-girl customers to peruse upcoming merchandise. The thing runs over 600 pages a month, and is a look into what’s going to be hot (or not) in comics and related merchandise.

In the latest issue, amid the ads for new comics, graphic novels, trading cards and Funko figures, there appeared the most curious solicitation:

To Celebrate ‘Wonder Woman,’ DC makes Golden Age Fans an Offer They Can’t Refuse

Golden Age greatness: Green Lantern, the Flash and Wonder Woman in one comic.
Golden Age greatness: Green Lantern, the Flash and Wonder Woman in one comic.

In honor of its latest blockbuster film “Wonder Woman,” DC released last week an astonishing amount of Golden Age comics in its comics app.

I’m tempted to say “unleashed,” only because I’m feeling giddy about discovering scores of comics that haven’t been available for decades.

And you don’t have to be a Wonder Woman fan to love this material.

New to the app: “Wonder Woman” Nos. 8-15, “Comic Cavalcade” Nos. 1-13, and “Sensation Comics” Nos. 10-40.

Check out ‘Supergirl’s’ amazing promo for ‘Wonder Woman’

Supergirl, Wonder Woman and Lois Lane walk into a bar ….

That’s the premise for this great, loopy one-of-a-kind promo CW cooked up for the new “Wonder Woman” film.

It was a surprise when it aired during the “Supergirl” season finale earlier this week. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) has been fighting her arch-enemy Rhea (Teri Hatcher) while the president (Lynda Carter) works to repel the Daxamite invasion.

But clearly somebody at CW saw an epic chance to bring together Supergirl, the original Wonder Woman (Carter) and Lois Lane (Hatcher) for this trippy salute to DC’s first stand-alone female super-hero film. I love it.

And the early word on “Wonder Woman” is good, too. Maybe the Amazon can shatter that box office glass ceiling.

‘Batman v Superman’: Dawn of the Dimwits

The gang is all here: 'Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.'
The gang is all here: ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.’

In Warner Bros.’ “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” DC Comics’ two greatest titans go mano-a-mano.

The loser: Audiences.

Warning: There be spoilers. If you haven’t seen the film – and I encourage you to wait until it’s on TNT some Sunday morning next year – tread at your risk.

Spend Thanksgiving with the Justice Society! (Justice League welcome as Plus-Ones)

Thanksgiving with the Justice Society
Thanksgiving with the JSA!

Not every Justice Society-Justice League team-up was a crisis.

OK, let me amend that: Not every Justice Society-Justice League team-up started as a crisis.

One, in fact, was even sort of about the mashed potatoes. Mmm. Delicious mashed potatoes.

And it ended with a pizza delivery and the teams turning down an order of free breadsticks.

I mean, who does that? Barbarians.
