Are you reading the book?

Shingo Wol 08-27-2010 07:59 PM

I flipped through it in store.

So I'm gonna take this as a no. Shingo we all know that you dislike this "revamp" but constantly complaining about it and wanting to revert back, aint gonna make it change back faster. So you can either do one of two things, one actually read the book and see if you enjoy the story, or two stop complaining about it since we already know your feelings on the matter

Shingo Wol 08-27-2010 08:08 PM

Allright, Allright, ill stop complaining.

lol, now if you actually read the book and complained, I would have no problem.

That's what I like about this storyline, the mythological side of Wonder Woman. It gives depth to Diana's linage as much as Krypton gives Kal El. It also puts Diana in the role of savior as well as leader, and so we'll she her struggle with those responsibilities. I'm looking forward to see how this all unfolds.

Having read #600-602 by now...

I like...
  • ...the costume. I know I'm in the minority here, but I still think it's a step forward from the US-flag bathing suit.
  • ...the central theme of "Theodicy" being explored through a Wonder Woman comic
  • ...the urban part of this Elseworld we've seen so far.

I don't like...
  • ...the ginormous boobs Don Kramer draws Wonder Woman with. Judging from the interviews with Jim Lee and Joe Straczynski, part of the reason behind the new costume was to make her look less like a pin-up girl. Kramer's art kind of defies that purpose.
  • ...the fact that the new "Urban" Wonder Woman has been in an urban setting for a short story in #600 and a couple of pages of #601, while spending the rest of 601 and 602 (and a part of 603, it seems) fighting an army in a desert in Turkey.
  • ...the fact that I have no idea how Donna and Cassie fit into all of this. Or the JLA. Or the rest of the DCU. We need to see more of the ripples that this retcon created.

All in all, I like the storyline so far. But JMS definitely needs to make the new status quo cooler. By the time he restores the old continuity, people should be missing the new one. Otherwise... what's the point?

W.West 09-05-2010 04:45 PM

How can you like the urban part when all we've seen is her fight in an alley?

And the point is to show Diana in a new way while still adding to her huge background. You won't find out what this does to the DCU, at least not this year. That's not something he considered, and you should have probably realized that through all those interviews and statements. This isn't about the DCU. Just like with Superman. Its not about what's going on with other characters. This WW story is supposed to be a look at her in a different setting and still reading/watching all the best parts about Diana shine through. Its not going to be here forever and while we may want to find out what these 2 years in this alternate timeline does to the DCU timeline, its essentially irrelevant. Treat it as the year lost during One Year Later. Its a timeframe in Wonder Woman's career as a superhero that just doesn't get explained...Maybe someday JMS or some other writer will bother to do so, but its not going to help you enjoy a story worrying about something the writer flat out stated he wasn't going to do.

I wouldn't say he draws them "ginormous"... WW really is supposed to have sizeable boobs. The gods going back in time to change Paradise Island's fate isn't going to make her go down in cup sizes.

If they are really trying to make us believe she's 18ish then the breasts are a problem, but that seems to be limited to flashbacks with those robe people..

Why? A woman's breast development is completed by 17-18.

omfg , I wish I would've known about the #603 variant before picking it up at the shop.

Darth_Primus 09-29-2010 05:56 PM

The variant does look pretty cool. I doubt I'll be able to get it.

Bruce Castle 09-29-2010 08:05 PM

It'll be in the trade.

W.West 09-29-2010 11:08 PM

I dont wanna say this latest issue was crap, but it was really boring and felt like an overcomplicated way of reaching the of the book. It felt like JMS wrote a bunch of "cool" scenes for Don Kramer to draw but didn't bother making them make sense. This book doesn't know what kind of tone it wants to be.

Hmmmm, hearing this definitely lowers my expectation. I picked up the issue on my lunch and probably won't read it until tomorrow.

I definitely agree. It was an entertaining read, mostly cause of Kramer. But it really didn't feel like anything important occurred.
