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.

Wonder Woman: The Untold Story of American Superheroines

A new documentary entitled Wonder Woman: The Untold Story of American Superheroines, which focuses on the growth and development of superheroines through comics, war, feminism, and the Riot Grrl movement of more recent years, will be showcased at the South By Southwest (SXSW) film festival.

While the documentary spends time on Wonder Woman, from the trailer which you can watch here below, it appears that the documentary is truly about feminism and how gender roles are displayed in popular culture depending on society’s attitude towards women at the time. The documentary is being directed by Kristy Guevara-Flanagan (Going on 13) and features appearances by Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman), Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman), Kathleen Hana from punk band Bikini Kill, Gloria Steinem, Trina Robbins, and more to discuss the impact of pop culture’s portrayal of women in media.
