Wonder Woman turns heads What’s the plot? I don’t know; but I am extremely skeptical about this purported leak. Um, spoiler alert, I guess, if you believe any of it.

2. The latest issue (#10) of the Spirit comic book might be worth picking up if you want to read parodies of a bunch of tv news and entertainment personalities – Rosie O’Donnell, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Stephen Colbert, Geraldo Rivera, etc., etc.
