Superman, Wonder Woman Writing Power Up!

Starting in July J. Michael Straczynski will take over DC Comics' Superman and Wonder Woman on an ongoing basis.  This is great news!

Joe is a gifted writer who has many, many brilliant TV and Comic projects.  He-Man, She-Ra, The Real Ghostbusters, The New Twilight Zone, Jake and the Fatman, Murder, She Wrote, Walker Texas Ranger, Babylon 5, and Jeremiah to just name a few of his TV projects.

Superman has now become interesting.  Batman is way better then Superman but with Straczynski behind him I suddenly find myself interested.

I’m hoping this change will be the gateway into getting a Wonder Woman movie.

Now if the studios will only hold off on the Superman rewrite project waiting for Straczynski to guide them.

A must have for Movie Writers working in the DC universe

get your copy of the DC Comic Encyclopedia here and help support the Project With the conversation and buzz building up over who will be in the next Batman Movie I thought we should take a moment to point out what should be the obvious.  The DC Comics Encyclopedia is a must have for any writer of DC comics movie. This book is a wonderful reference full of heroes and villains from the DC Universe.  For each character they give at basic bio sheet, what comics they appear in and a couple of paragraphs with some basic information.  They also cover the different organizations like The Justice League and The Justice Society.  As a fan I love this book and use it often as a quick reference sometimes to refresh my memory and with the more obscure characters like Bat-Mite a good starting source of information.
