I came into this fully aware what was being said about it, but I bought it anyway, out of curiosity. I really tried to give it the benefit of the doubt. I read the first issue "eh, this isn't so bad." Then the second issue, still not too bad. By 3 and 4 the deviations from what Wonder Woman ought to be have just become too great. The problem is that if you've never read Wonder Woman before, good Wonder Woman (Perez, Wein, Jimenez, Rucka, and Simone) you won't realize just how wrong this book is.
I've read various webpages on the Internet saying that Geoff Johns was the one responsible for the new "creative" direction for the book. If this is true, please, please DC never let Johns near Wonder Woman again, in any media. He appears to think WW wasn't "human enough" so by making her "more human" he was hoping attract new readers, not realizing this would repel everyone who was already reading the book. "Who is Wonder Woman?" Johns certainly doesn't know.
I'm giving it 2 stars instead of 1 because the Dodsons' art is pretty good for the most part.
Oh. Um. Johns and Heinberg wrote the upcoming Wonder Woman movie. With... Zack Snyder.
Oh, darn. Well, I'll watch it anyway, and pray to Athena Heinberg and Johns have come to their senses in the past few years.*
*Edit: They have.
She took a year off to explore who is Diana and what does that mean.
This book brings with it a solid well written story that needs to be judged as a collected edition not on the time delays that caused it to be late. The publisher made a choice to accommodate Allan Heinberg, writer of many hit TV series. They made a choice of quality over quantity.
It paid of in the finished product.
The Dodson's artwork for Diana is what Diana would look like or should look like in an animated series. She is powerful, gorgeous and evnces great martial and athletic prowess. Her fight scenes are breath taking.
I won't spoil the plot. This book is about a woman who is finding herself and feels alone but realizes that the friends and companions she cultivated stand by her, love her and from that love she finds she is the most powerful warrior of all.
That is who Wonder Woman is.
A 5 star read.
But if Heinberg cares to do another story, I would kindly suggest it get done first before it is marketed as such to the public.
