Re-invigorated Fanchick

For a while there my dear fanboy decided that we should do a site dedicated to the family comic fan.  Honestly, our family loves comic book characters in their many forms.  I started a site that we would both work on but for various reasons it was just me posting.  While I love the concept of Married With Comics, it ended up just being me.  And so, I'm back here reveling in my fanchickness.   The following post reflects my life as a Fanchick.

Every now and then I go to Ebay and type "Wonder Woman" into the search box.  I would find many things that are cool, and many things that are vintage but nothing that I just had to have.

One day I was on looking for a book for my little fanchicklet. I'd seen an "I Can Read" book with Superman on the cover. On the back of the book was an add for a Wonder Woman story.  I had to have it to read to my daughter.  They didn't have one in stock at the store. Big surprise.  As soon as I got home I went to Amazon looking for it.  I typed Wonder Woman into the search bar thinking that there would be a few listings: the Linda Carter series, the last animated movie, a few costumes and the book I was looking for.  Oh, boy...  I had no idea there was so much stuff available.  I never see anything in the stores.  I assumed it just didn't exist. I was so very, very wrong.

I was able to narrow down my choices to 3 things I really needed to have

Polly Pocket!

 We have a Batgirl and Robin just like it

It's just cool!

I made a purchase that day and it is one that I don't regret.  I took the high road and bought the Polly Pocket set for my daughter.  I am a firm believer that little girls need heroes too.  And this is my effort to help my daughter believe in  a woman who is smart, beautiful and can kick some major butt.
