I love Wonder Woman. I can’t get enough of her. She was amazing in Batman v. Superman! I did have my reservations at first about Gal Gadot when she was cast, but she completely changed my mind. We haven’t had an official live action version of WW since Lynda Carter (we won’t mention Cathy Lee, or that sad failed TV pilot). There was a lot of pressure on her but she totally delivered. The accent threw me off a little, because we’re so used to seeing Wonder Woman portrayed in the media with no accent. But it makes perfect sense. Like..duh. Of course, she’s greek. Her movie costume is so awesome. My boyfriend pre-ordered the 1:6 scale Sideshow movie version for my birthday and I can’t wait for it to come out! I hope her solo film next year does well. I’m a little worried that with all the hype around it, especially with her appearance in BvS, that expectations are set so high, that if there’s even a little bit of criticism its going to disappointment people. But even if it does suck I’m still going to love it. I still love Spice World.
June is Pride Month and I wanted to launch my blog about the webcomic I’m working on entitled Pride Guys. It’s a comic about LGBTQ superheroes. Like all young and nerdy impressionable gays I grew up with a love for comics and superheroes, but I also wish I had LGBTQ superheroes to look up (and in some instances fantasize about ☺️). Every time a new gay hero would show up in comics I would totally eat it up! I was so hungry for gay content that I didn’t care if he/she/they were boring or completely uninteresting. All I cared about was that they were just like me.
This tragedy has hit the LGBTQ community hard, and even though the webcomic isn’t ready (I’ve never launched a website or worked on a comic before so this is a HUGE learning curve for me.), I wanted to show my support by creating something for our fallen brothers and sisters, to honor their memory and their lives. They will never be forgotten.
