    Why the 1980s Were Wonder Woman's Greatest Era

    WONDER WOMAN #20 (Sep 1988)
    DC Comics
    Recently it has been rumored that the sequel to this summer’s smash hit Wonder Woman from director Patty Jenkins will not take place in the present day, but would be a “Cold War era adventure” set during the 1980s. So why is this a good idea, aside from the glorious hair, wardrobe and soundtrack choices this shift in time periods could provide us? Well, you might not realize it, but the ’80s was an absolutely glorious decade for our Amazing Amazon.

    In fact, the modern version of Wonder Woman, which has been reflected not only in Gal Gadot’s performance but also in other recent incarnations like the Justice League Unlimited animated series, owes almost everything  to the 1986 Wonder Woman reboot by George Perez. If the 1940s was Wonder Woman’s “Golden Age”, then the ’80s were definitely the second golden age for Diana.

    (excerpt)

    But they weren’t the only ones. Wonder Woman also had a publicist, a go-getter “business woman of the ’80s” named Myndi Mayer, who was ruthless when it came to getting Wonder Woman’s name out to the public and making her a household word, but underneath it all, had her heart in the right place. She helped Diana form the Wonder Woman Foundation, an organization whose goal it was to help women, especially those in domestic violence situations. Myndi was 100% different from the altruistic Amazons Diana grew up with, but she formed a real bond with her all the same. Eventually, we were introduced to the character of Myndi’s younger gay brother Kevin, who was outcast from his family except by his sister. It was one of the first times homophobia had ever been directly addressed in a mainstream superhero comic.

    DC Comics is having a sale on its Wonder Woman digital comics at ComiXology.  As you can see from the images below, WONDER WOMAN #2-24 are finally available in digital.  I don't need to tell you that even at a 99 cents sale, the price is still well above the original 75 cents cover price.  To its credit, there are no advertisements in the digital version.

    I'm also very unhappy at ComiXology iPad application, which crashes all the time (especially on first launch).  It's annoying, real comics don't crash when you open its pages.

    After New Mutants, Star Wars, and Spider-Man, I lose track of what you did for the rest of the 1980's. What were you doing?
    BOB: I inked 6 issues of JEMM, SON OF SATURN over Gene Colan, for DC after Klaus Janson bailed out of the series. I pencilled and inked a fill-in on POWER PACK for my friend June Brigman, inked a couple issues of SPITFIRE (one over [Herb] Trimpe, one over McFarlane), and inked a lot of GI JOE covers. I then inked several issues of WONDER WOMAN over [George] Perez breakdowns, then inked several issues of the NEW TITANS over Perez breakdowns, inked a NEW MUTANTS ANNUAL over Brigman breakdowns, inked New Mutants #75 over [John] Byrne breakdowns, and then inked that horrible 12-issue SUB-MARINER series over [Rick] Buckler, which almost stalled my career again. That's when I decided to move back up north to rejuvenate my career, and being back in NYC made a big difference in the assignments I got. I started inking the HULK over Dale Keown, then quit that when I got an offer to pencil SUPERMAN.
