Comics Beat: Denver Comic Con 2013, Jimenez, Perez, Fradon, Kelly Find Wonder Woman ‘Problematic’

Comics Beat did a summary of a really interesting Wonder Woman panel discussion at Denver Comic Con:  http://comicsbeat.com/on-the-scene-denver-comic-con-2013-jimenez-perez-fradon-kelly-find-wonder-woman-problematic/

My favorite piece of this, when talking about adapting Wonder Woman for TV/film:  “In [Phil] Jimenez’s reading of Wonder Woman stories, he sees a figure from whom humanity can learn a great deal, but in proposed adaptations, she has always been reconfigured as a character who needs to learn from humanity.  It’s a fundamental problem, he felt, that dilutes the character’s strengths.”

FRIGGING BINGO.

Many more great points there, so check out the article.
