Looks around house, yep, me too! ;P
I was hired for a website in December. The spec was relatively simple, yet the client kept haggling over the design of the site. This was fine.
What wasn’t fine was that he constantly ignored emails requesting content for the site. I eventually gave up emailing. When he finally came back to me and said he wanted the site finished by month’s end, I had to inform him I was actually going on holiday.
To try to make it up to him, I worked 24 hours straight to get the site to what he now wanted, wrote up a manual for the site use, and sent it off.
Imagine my surprise when he emailed me, despite knowing I was away, to say how upset and angry he was that the site still wasn’t ready and that my going on holiday wasn’t an option for me.
In his angry email, he listed out a series of faults. For each, the solution I wrote was the same:
Me: Refresh your browser.
My editor. I assume he wants a .doc and not the .docx I sent him. But still…
During the last few days I’ve been asked about two Wonder Woman items a number of times. The possible new creative team is one and I’ll be putting together some thoughts on that. Second, is my reaction to this post on CBR, "My 10 Year-Old Daughter Couldn’t Care Less About Wonder Woman."
It’s a good read so go take a look. She notes that Wonder Woman is not pervasive as a role model for girls in pop culture is absolutely true. She hasn’t had a TV show in 35 year; has never a big screen movie; she has had not ever had a kid friendly comics that focus exclusively on her. And there are so few kid’s toys that feature Wonder Woman that I have written entire posts on them when they show up. By contrast if I did that for, say, Batman there would be an entire blog devoted to it. Oh wait, there is one.
And I absolutely agree with the writer’s concern about her daughter not caring about Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is a great character for girls - powerful, wise, smart and, when written correctly, one who chooses peace over war and love over hate. One who fights for good and equality. Plus she has an invisible plane. Who wouldn’t want to be like her?
Obviously this little girl does.
So I have to ask, “so why isn’t there a Wonder Woman all-ages comic?”
