We leave the world of men and enter Paradise as we sit down with Greg Rucka, head writer of Wonder Woman for DC. We discuss comic books as mythology, dig into the historical roots of Wonder Woman and the Amazons, and revel in the super queer nature of paradise. Join us to find out just how scared of powerful women the Greeks really were! A blog post version of the episode is also available here.

Find out more about Greg Rucka and his work at or on Twitter @RuckaWriter. For more on the Amazons of the DC Universe, aka the Amazons of Themyscira, click here. The splinter group Greg mentions is the Bana-Mighdall.
