This is the first issue of IDW’s Womanthology: Space series that I have read, which is a shame on my part. Womanthology was born out of a successful Kickstarter campaign, originating as a longer graphic novel, and now spinning off into the Space anthology series. The big deal of the series is that all of the stories in the series were created by, as you could guess from the title, women. This shouldn’t be a big deal, but given the how hard it is for women to get material published in the comics world, it is. The Space series takes the general entry point of “women in comics” and focuses on stories somehow dealing with space, or space travel, or some kind of outer-space stuff. What you end up with in this issue is a collection of three charming stories and an interesting look at one of the golden age of comics female pioneers.

The first story in this issue is titled “Centipede.” It’s basically a riff on Aliens, with a smuggler bringing a dangerous creature onto a normal space ship. It’s a little too short to build any real suspense, but that’s no fault of the creators, who do a decent job given the page count.

Mohd's Wonder Woman header

I’ve said this before, but Project: Rooftop is a site that you need to add to your RSS readers. It’s consistently one of the best places to check out fan redesigns on popular, and sometimes unpopular, characters from comic books, and Wednesday’s installment of Wonder Woman from Hanie Mohd is no different.

Artist Hanie Mohd submitted an excellent redesign on the Amazonian warrior princess Wonder Woman in a more off-duty/evening gown attire, and it’s simply gorgeous artwork. It’s a simple idea, change Wonder Woman’s outfit to a dress and watch the magic, and while I’m sure someone in the history of the character has used this idea, none stand out to me like Mohd’s design. Maybe it’s the sky-style of the flowing dress, maybe it’s just that it’s that good, but either way, Mohd’s design is awesome, which you can check out here below.
