I didn't think it was boring, but probably overcomplicated as the story went straight to hell. Initially, I thought we would spend several issues here, but I glad to see that wasn't the case. It was a really quick read, and there wasn't much substance to it, but rather a hint to things to come like Hades and Wonder Woman's confrontation with Cerberus.

Kramer's work of the souls trapped on this side of the Styx was defiinitely cool. And I would agree that this issue didn't advance the storyline, which is disappointing because the story was moving along at a pretty good pace. Hopefully things will get back on track in the next issue.

Interesting review of the issue and better comments below it. I wouldn't say it's a classic hero's quest, but it's working towards it.

The Vitruvian (Wonder) Woman. I like it. I hope this signifies answers and background information.

Bruce Castle 10-07-2010 01:06 AM

Bleh. To hell with Alex Garner.

Darth_Primus 10-07-2010 02:52 AM

Red "X" for me.

Bruce Castle 10-07-2010 05:06 AM

New browser.

Darth_Primus 10-07-2010 04:43 PM

That's okay. I could wait until I come across the cover.

Bruce Castle 10-08-2010 05:51 AM

Or, ya know, improve your situation rather than whine.

JMS' Wonder Woman gets fill in?
Quote:


Remember when we ran some lovely Wonder Woman artwork-that-never-was a while back? Specifically some from Drew Johnson, from a project written by Micheal Jelenic, writer of the Wonder Woman animated DVD?

Well, it looks like it might not be quite-so never-was after all. An interview we linked to last week with inker Ray Snyder last week, has the lead in;

His work on a riveting fill-in story for the “Wonder Woman” series with former Macon resident Drew Edward Johnson will hit stands in the coming months.


With later elaboration;

…an upcoming story arc in the “Wonder Woman” series, which began as an inventory story intended to give the monthly book’s regulars a chance to catch up. It became a fill-in for the series — as a flashback — that could’ve made it as a stand-alone book.

I've become desentized to JMS books getting delayed

Bruce Castle 11-02-2010 12:20 AM

Probably wouldn't be so bad if his work wasn't so dreadful when it actually shipped.

I guess this is the point where I say that I am disappointed in his run on Wonder Woman which so far has failed to hook me in. I have even contemplated dropping this book because just has not been good from a story stand point. Just because JMS is on the cover doesn't mean I will love it no matter what, it just means I will give him the benefit of the doubt when he writes something.

Bruce Castle 11-02-2010 12:38 AM

Well, it's nice to see you're growing up.

Michael Heide 11-02-2010 09:45 AM

Not every JMS book is good. Dream Police was boring, Bullet Points was pointless, Amazing Spider-Man had its low points, Rising Stars suffered from the many artist changes.

But when he hits, he knocks it out of the park. Midnight Nation. Supreme Power. Book of Lost Souls. Silver Surfer: Requiem. Fantastic Four. The Twelve (so far). The majority of Amazing Spider-Man. And let's not forget that the best Twilight Zone episodes from the 80s series were written by him.

All of which makes Bruce an idiot when he claims that JMS is such a dreadful writer, blah blah.

Yes, Wonder Woman takes some time. But enough people like it.

W.West 11-02-2010 11:31 AM

Enough people? Its getting the same amount of sales as Simone did in her final issues, and worse reviews.

You're quite the hypocrite, calling me a "namecaller" when that's all you ever do, blah blah.

Wonder Woman #606 PREVIEW

I read the Wonder Woman #606 and it was another nearly flat line issue. The only pulse of intrigue I found in this issue occurred when Diana found action figures of her in the traditional Wonder Woman gear and questioned the meaning of it. Other than that, I feel the Greek mythos are enhancing the WW character or comic book.

Really? I actually thought the last two issues (since JMS left) have been a improvement over the initial arc.

Darth_Primus 02-09-2011 06:16 PM

Well, I do like the attempt to create some real arch nemesis for Wonder with the Morrigan. However, that has yet to materialize. Right now, it's going through the set up process.
