William Marston was an unusual man—a psychologist, a soft-porn pulp novelist, more than a bit of a carny, and the (self-declared) inventor of the lie detector. He was also the creator of Wonder Woman, the comic that he used to express two of his greatest passions: feminism and women in bondage. Comics expert Noah Berlatsky takes us on a wild ride through the Wonder Woman comics of the 1940s, vividly illustrating how Marston’s many quirks and contradictions, along with the odd disproportionate composition created by illustrator Harry Peter, produced a comic that was radically ahead of its time in terms of its bold presentation of female power and sexuality. Himself a committed polyamorist, Marston created a universe that was friendly to queer sexualities and lifestyles, from kink to lesbianism to cross-dressing. Written with a deep affection for the fantastically pulpy elements of the early Wonder Womancomics, from invisible jets to giant multi-lunged space kangaroos, the book also reveals how the comic addressed serious, even taboo issues like rape and incest. Wonder Woman: Bondage and Feminism in the Marston/Peter Comics 1941-1948 reveals how illustrator and writer came together to create a unique, visionary work of art, filled with bizarre ambition, revolutionary fervor, and love, far different from the action hero symbol of the feminist movement many of us recall from television.
When Danielle Wellys invokes the ritual of Hiketeia, Wonder Woman takes her on as student and servant and, by the laws of the gods, must protect her even against Batman, who wishes to bring Danielle to justice for past crimes.

Aya of Yop City
For the residents of Yopougon, everyday life is good. It is the early 1970s, a golden time - work is plentiful, hospitals are clean and well equipped, and school is obligatory. The Ivory Coast is as an island of relative wealth and stability in West Africa. For the teenagers of the town, though, worries are plentiful, and life in Yop City is far from simple. Aya tells the story of its nineteen-year-old heroine, the clear-sighted and bookish Aya, and her carefree and fun-loving friends Adjoua and Bintou. Navigating meddling relatives and neighbours, the girls spend a last summer of their childhood on the sun-warmed streets of Yop City - sneaking out for dancing at open-air bars, strong solibra beer, chicken in peanut sauce and avoiding at all costs the scandal pages of the Calamity Morning.... Aya is a captivating, colourful and hugely entertaining portrayal of an Africa we rarely see, spirited and resilient, and full of the sounds, sights and smells of a prosperous town and its varied inhabitants.

L Arch mythe des Amazones
Le mythe des Amazones, autour du noyau central scytho-lybien colporte par la mythologie grecque, s'est developpe en autant de noyaux peripheriques que de continents, a irradie bon nombre de communautes feminines antiques, matriarcales ou gynecocratiques, puis a permis de multiples cristallisations individuelles dans la plupart des mythologies. Aujourd'hui encore, avec les mouvements feministes et les organisations militantes et radicales d'emancipation feminine et lesbienne, le mythe connait un renouveau inattendu. L'etude de tous ceux qui ont tente de l'expliquer, de lui donner une signification historique, religieuse, philosophique, sociologique, ou psychanalytique, fait apparaitre une evidente correlation entre le mythe, le matriarcat et les cultes primitifs de la Deesse Mere. La litterature et les arts attestent d'emergences centrees autour de quatre archetypes amazoniens majeurs: la rivale des hommes, la tueuse d'homme, la lesbienne et la pretresse de la deesse lunaire.
