Once upon a time, I was a huge fan of DC comics. I read anything and everything pertaining to Batman, Batgirl, Oracle, Robin, Black Canary, Zatanna, and a handful of other characters. Oddly enough, though, I had a very hard time connecting with Wonder Woman. Strange, considering that she is one of DC's few explicitly, openly polytheist characters -- and a Hellenic Pagan, to boot, just like me. I found the occasional one-shot or miniseries that I enjoyed, and the Golden Age comics were awesome, but for the most part, the mainstream Wonder Woman series left me cold.

Polytheism: The Solitary Vice?

It's a Golden Age of polytheist publishing.

To incisive works such as John Michael Greer's World Full of Gods and Steven Dillon's A Case for Polytheism, we can now add W. D.

It's a pioneering, and invaluable, study of Polytheism-as-Lived in the modern world.

Sigh. If only the news were better.
