Lassoing the Truth: Marston Versus Wertham in the Wonder Woman War at SDCC 2017
Psychologist William Moulton Marston created the world's most famous female superhero. Using outdated examples and falsified evidence, psychiatrist Fredric Wertham attacked both Wonder Woman and the deceased Marston in his book Seduction of the Innocent. Doctors Travis Langley and Mara Wood (Wonder Woman Psychology: Lassoing the Truth) call together a panel of experts to examine how one crusader's fight with a ghost affected both comics and comics studies: Phil Jimenez (Wonder Woman), Trina Robbins (The Legend of Wonder Woman), Danny Fingeroth (Superman on the Couch), Alan Kistler (comics historian), Mike Madrid (The Supergirls), and Andy Mangels (writer, Wonder Woman '77 Meets The Bionic Woman) with special guest Christie Marston (Wonder Woman Network and Family Museum). Be a sensation, not sensationalistic!
