Wonder Woman #37

Last catch-up week this week, with two doublers to deal with, both Wonder Woman and Justice League having had Christmas-fortnight issues that I missed out on reviewing. So after the jump we’ll first be looking at the return of a very old and important character to the Wonder Woman and probably even DC universe, as well as Superman’s immune system.

Also after the jump are the concluding part of the first Wonder Woman ’77 story, in which Wonder Woman has to deal with another old enemy, and Injustice: Gods Among – Year Three gives us a battle between Wonder Woman and a super-powered Batwoman. I wonder who’ll win that one?

The Wednesday Play: Play For Today – The General’s Day (1972)

William Trevor is widely regarded as one of the greatest contemporary writers of short stories in the English language. Nominated for the Booker Prize five times and winner of the Whitbread Prize three times, he was awarded an honorary CBE in 1977, made a Companion of Literature in 1994, and was given an honorary KBE for his services to literature in 2002.

Although most of his work has been literary, between 1965 and 1978, he wrote many plays for both the BBC and ITV, including the famous O Fat White Woman, which was adapted from a short story in 1971 for the BBC’s Play For Today. The following year, he wrote The General’s Day, which starred Annette Crosbie (One Foot In The Grave), Dandy Nichols (In Sickness and Health) and, in one of his last ever roles, Alastair Sim (Scrooge, the St Trinian’s movies and Ealing comedies). Sim plays the general of the title, General Suffolk, who wants to get rid of his housekeeper (Nichols) as he’s persuaded a much younger school teacher (Crosbie) to move in with him.

It’s a bittersweet piece, demonstrating Trevor’s typically acute observations of the human condition, and it’s today’s Wednesday Play.
