Wondy Returns… To The Eighties!

Ahh the eighties, also known as – the greatest decade in human history (I’m an 80’s kid, so a slight amount of bias may be inherent) the decade of extreme action heroes like Arnie and Sly, the start of grandly Gothic culture (yep, I was a Goth too!) the absolute best horror movies ever, and comic book sales and readership were massive thanks to marvellously mature storylines and celebrated creators, especially glorious George Perez and his ultimate take on everyone’s favourite Amazon Princess… plus Lynda Carter, returning once more as Diana… as I said greatest, decade, EVER!

And it seems I’m not alone in this thought, as delightful director Patty Jenkins and astonishing actress Gal Gadot will be revisiting this decidedly delicious decade with the sequel to the sterling 2017 Wonder Woman movie, appropriately titled Wonder Woman 84. With film production in full swing we have been regaled with much in the way of awesome stills and video footage, comprising not just Zeus’ favoured daughter, but also, the intriguing return of Steve Trevor. Feast your eyes on these implacably illustrious images, my astounding Amazonian associates:

Hmmmm, now the only problem I can foresee with Gal’s Wondy popping up during the exhilarating eighties is the possibility of an extreme time paradox occurring should she run into Lynda Carter’s vivacious version of the Themysciran Titan.

Listen Sting, could you not stand so close to me, and for the fifth time, no, I haven’t read your message in a bottle, and would you please stop calling me Roxanne!!

Sting Channels John Constantine…

Well bloody ‘ell, who would of thought it, Sting is a bleedin’ Constantine fan… how cool is that!? 

In a recent video, music maestro Sting has revealed he will be writing the foreword to the Constantine: Hellblazer 30th Anniversary Celebration. Interestingly (and bloody well meta!) Sting’s foreword will take the unique perspective of the Golden Boy, Constantine’s alternate universe twin, and will focus on his relationship with the mystic occult detective over the years. Sting fantastically captures the look and essence of the classic British comic-book character, his inclusion in the celebratory collection is a definite nod to the fact that Sting was an early inspiration to Constantine’s signature appearance. Very, bloody, cool, Indeed!

“Starting from his first appearance, a debut penned by the extraordinary legend that is Alan Moore, Constantine has served as an enduring and controversial pop-culture character… an exorcist and demonologist, master of the dark arts, and the lead of DC/Vertigo’s longest running and most successful title.”

The John Constantine – Hellblazer: 30th Anniversary Collection will be available to buy on October 30th.

And Finally… Death!

Look at this.. look at it… I need this, it’s everything… it’s life (well actually it’s Death, but y’know) This awesome Death of the Endless pop figure is coming to a comic-book emporium near you, pre-order it soon or spend an eternity longing for Death…

Why not join us again next time friends, for more Week In Geek.
