Since I enjoy philosophy and superheroes this compilation of essays edited by William Irwin was a no brainer I will say that I did notice some essays contradicting information that I read as fact from DC authorized books so I will probably double check my sourced material to make sure I didn t misinterpret what was stated in these essays versus what was stated in the DC authorized books Also something to take note of since I referenced DC authorized books is that this compilation of essays is not an authorized DC book So there is the possibility that some of these scholarly papers have the wrong information because they are not sourced by anyone other than the writerAnother thing to take note of you can tell which writers truly know something about Wonder Woman in the comics and her role as a feminine icon and which writers know very little about Wonder Woman and only use her as an example to further an argument for the sake of writing a paper There are a couple of interesting essays in this book but there are still a great deal of essays that create a cringe worthy reaction I found myself sitting through a series of paper lectures at the last comic convention I attended and I found those topics to be very interesting and I felt that the presenters had value to offer to the particular topic they spoke about However some of the essays presented in this compilation are not essays that I would want to sit and listen but then anytime someone uses the word existential my brain is hard wired to shut down and stop listeninghttpsgeekdadcom201705stack ove
