In June, my current home town of Bromley decided it was going to start celebrating HG Wells again, after getting rid of the mural to him that used to be here the best part of a decade ago. Well, I say Bromley but it's actually huge corporate giant Intu, which took over the Glades shopping centre a few years ago and renamed it Intu Bromley.
Since then, things have progressed. The Lego Time Machine has now been given a permanent home in a glass case at the foot of the ground floor escalators.
And this weekend, in a probably temporary display, we got this:
So well done to the greedy giant corporate for doing what the council arguably should be doing. At least this weekend. I imagine it'll be Santa's Grotto next week.
Welcome back to Weekly Wonder Woman, which this week and for one week only happens to fall on Wonder Woman Wednesday.
It's been a while, hasn't it? Sorry about that, but holidays, work and TV have all got in the way. Fingers crossed, though, we're back on track now. We might even be weekly again. Wouldn't that be something?
In WWW's absence, things have happened, of course. She's been set to feature on four US postal stamps from October 7:
The first trailer for the new Justice League cartoon, Justice League Action, has been released:
As has one for the video game sequel to 'Injustice: Gods Among Us', which features Diana as well:
A photo for the live action Justice League has also been released. Superman's in it - did you see that coming?
Wonder Woman artist Liam Sharp has signed exclusively with DC. We've learnt there's going to be a Wonder Womancrossover with The BionicWoman in Wonder Woman '77 in December that includes art by Alex Ross…
…and that the forthcoming NBC show Powers (I'll review it when it airs, folks) will also involve Wonder Woman peripherally, at least.
You could also have learnt to draw Wonder Woman the Ivan Reis way at DC Art Academy.
See what happens if you go away for a bit? Madness, that's what. Madness.
Of course, the previous two months have also seen an awful lot of comics featuring our Diana. There's literally no way I could cover all of them today without taking all of today to write WWW, so I'm going to do what I did last year and recap the missing issues of each title once the latest issue of that title is out in the forthcoming weeks.
In the case of Wonder Woman, I'm also going to break down the recaps between the two different storylines. And on top of that, despite the fact that there are new issues out today featuring Wondy, I'm only going to look at the titles that were out last week, otherwise I'll not have anything to look at next week.
Once you've done all your back-of-a-fag-packet math with that algorithm, you'll see that after the jump, I'll be looking at Wonder Woman (Rebirth) #4 and #6, as well as Wonder Woman '77#21-27. Well, I might cheat with the latter ones.
About the blog
A UK media blog focusing on the best scripted TV from around the world, with daily news, views, exclusive reviews and good conversation. There's a bit of a bias towards the latest and greatest US TV, but we also cover Scandinavian, Canadian, European and Antipodean TV, as well as UK TV ranging from new Doctor Who to old Z Cars, and BBC4 to S4C.
Add in film, theatre, art, books, events, competitions and even weekly reviews of Wonder Woman comics, and you've (hopefully) got officially the fourth best blog on the web for media lovers. Oh yes, and there's The Barrometer, the ultimate guide to quality TV.

I'm Rob Buckley, a freelance journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of, although you might have heard me on Radio 5 Live's Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I've edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for trade magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider and the equally short-lived Death Ray and Filmstar magazines; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it "web site for urban hedonists" The Tribe. I'm freelance now and have contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network and TV Scoop.
