Actually, the latest installment of my Bookgasm.com column, Capes, Cowls & Costumes has absolutely nothing to do with the New York Comicon, where I am today. Instead, it’s about Wonder Woman’s appearances in novels and short stories, which is a whole lot more interesting than novels about comic book conventions.… Read the rest
