Exclusive Interview: “Wonder Woman: Bondage And Feminism In The Marston / Peter Comics 1941-1948” Author Noah Berlatsky


This week — alongside the latest collections of Batman, X-Men, and Iron Man — your friendly, neighborhood comic book store will also be selling Wonder Woman Bondage And Feminism In The Marston/Peter Comics 1941-1948 (hardcover, paperback, digital). A thoughtful look at her real-world origins and how she’s impacted, and been impacted by, feminism, submission, and matriarchal ideas, the book comes from Noah Berlatsky, the editor of and a contributor to Slate, The Atlantic, and The Comics Journal. But while this isn’t the first book to tackle this subject, Berlatsky explains why he thinks, “The overlap is minimal to nonexistent.”
