Weekly Wonder Woman: The Brave and the Bold #1, Trinity #18 and Wonder Woman/Conan #6

Every week, Weekly Wonder Woman keeps you up to date on everything involving DC Comics’ premier superheroine, including whether she’s been blessed by a fertility god

Do you know, I don’t think there’s been any proper Wonder Woman news this week. Not movies, not comics, definitely not TV. Nothing.

There is some book news, though, with Laurie Halse Anderson’s Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed reimagining of our Diana:

15-year-old Diana sees drowning refugees and disobeys her mother Hippolyta to rescue them. She becomes caught up in their struggle, becoming a refugee herself. Washing up on a foreign shore, she is met by two UN workers – one called Steve and another called Trevor. While trying to help her find her way home, she uncovers a smuggler and trafficking ring.

But that doesn’t really count cos it’s, you know, for kids.

So let’s head straight into the reviews. We have the last of the Wonder Woman-Conan crossover in Wonder Woman/Conan #6, while in Trinity #18, Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman are off fighting dinosaurs and riding unicorns on ‘Skartaris’. But we also have the start of a Batman-Wonder Woman team-up in The Brave and the Bold #1 as they have to go to Ireland to visit some gods.

Diana did also appear in Justice League #39. But this is all she did:

Strike Back returns
UK TV

Stonebridge and Scott are back in Strike Back and making everyone else look rubbish

It’s almost enough to make me want to watch the latest episode… but not quite, since the new cast and characters are quite rubbish.

It does make me wonder, though: given that the writers can clearly still write decent bantz for Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Scott (Sullivan Stapleton), are they deliberately writing the new characters as a bit dull and rubbish?

I do hope our former dynamic duo aren’t dead by the end of the season, though – that would be pretty predictable for Strike Back, which kills off characters with even greater regularity than Blake’s 7.

Might be nice to have it work out differently for a change…

What have you been watching? Including Corporate, Counterpart and Baron Noir

It’s “What have you been watching?”, your chance to recommend anything you’ve been watching this week

The Winter Olympics continues to have its chilling effect on TV programming, with an almost glacial release of new shows and plenty of old shows frozen in their tracks. Elsewhere, I’ve reviewed Stargate Origins (Stargate Command) and Here and Now (US: HBO). But that’s been the lot, more or less, in the past week. That does mean, though, that I’ve been able to christen a new movie feature on TMINE this week, Movie Monday, to take in film reviews, which means WHYBW can now focus on tele.

Black Lightning‘s on holiday this week, so that just leaves us with the remaining usual regulars: Corporate, Counterpart, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, High Maintenance and The Magicians, as well as the season finale of Baron Noir. Two of them are getting a promotion – can you guess which ones?
