Black Wonder WomanWhat does that have to do with fitness and wellness you ask? Well, I’ll tell you. I love superheroes! So naturally I love comic books. I love the art, the colors, the story lines, the strong characters-especially the female characters.

I was a huge Wonder Woman fan growing up-mostly of the TV show but as awesome as that was isn’t that enough? To me, comic books and their female heroines-and supervillans-showed a depiction of female strength even if it is exaggerated at times. i mean, don’t get it twisted, I know the danger of the totally fabled body type that is often presented in the comics, but to their credit, it is often countered with at least a story line to demonstrate strong, intelligent and capable women with often superhuman abilities.

Modern comic books have more diversity than ever and to me, it is important for me to show my son multidimensional characters that challenge the norm.

So check out www.freecomicbookday.com and find a location near you that has events and of course-a free comic book!
