Flashpoint: Wonder Woman And the Furies #1-3 0

Something happened to the timestream and the superheroes of the known universe are no longer the same! This applies to heroic icon, Wonder Woman, more than anyone who now leads an army of women warriors against former allies in a war that threatens to engulf the entire planet. What started out as an almost fresh and vogue take on the Amazing Amazon quickly fell apart in this mini-series middle and final chapters.   The young Princess Diana of the Amazons seemed a confident, compassio...

A Warmongering Amazon? 0

Myself with friends and fellow Wonder Woman fans have been up in arms against DC Comics' latest treatment of its most famous heroine. Mostly due in part to the botched WONDER WOMAN relaunch starting in issue #600 (officially in #601), envisioned by J. Michael Straczynski and the bloodthirsty Amazon warrior that replaced our beloved Wonder Woman, a protector of peace, commonly known for turning enemies into allies. Coupled with a failed WONDER WOMAN TV pilot that starred an even angrier version o...

Let's Wrap This Up! 0

I've been trying to give this series a chance since the title character is my favorite heroine of all-time. That being said, I can't help but think I've been wasting three dollars a month since this revised origin took place in issue #601. The initial plan seemed like a fun idea, but with a shift in writers, story direction, and multiple artists, plus a totally new character almost totally unrelated to the Amazing Amazon except in name only, I quickly tired of this "Wonder Woman". It seemed that...

Monumental Event 0

 It’s a monumental event for the Amazing Amazon who I’ve adored over two decades as Wonder Woman celebrates her 600 issue! The Amazon Princess’ publisher, DC Comics, commemorates this event with much style with a double-sized issue put together by some of the hottest creators in the comic book industry. The two highlights of #600 are the first and last mini-stories as current WONDER WOMAN writer, Gail Simone, weaves her last tale of DC’s premier heroine with former WONDER WOMAN writer/artist sup...

Our Cast Continues To Grow! 0

 “The Dark Things” storyline continues as League member, Congo Bill, finds himself taken out of the equation due to the chaos created by the Starheart possessing Alan Scott, Obsidian, and Dr. Fate. But never fear, Shilo Norma, AKA Mr. Miracle, has pledged to aid the Justice League and Justice Society as six heroes attempt to infiltrate the Starhearts’ moon base and rescue Starman (who’s being held captive). As things progressively grow worse on Earth, the heroes battle their way closer to their ...

Jade is Green With Envy 0

 Egh, so Supergirl is officially a member of the Justice League? I guess I see that writer, James Robinson, is creating a dichotomy of the original seven with Dick Grayson as Batman, Donna Troy in place of Wonder Woman, etc, but I have not been of fan of the post-Crisis Supergirl. Maybe Robinson can change that, he certainly changed my mind of, Congo Bill, who has a cool scene with Jesse Quick against, Samurai, originally from “Super Friends” fame. My favorite Leaguer, Donna, and ally, Jade, als...

Missing Marvel Link 0

This could be possibly be what Marvel Comics is missing with the absence of the New Warriors and lack of a regular Spider-Girl or Young Avengers series. Sean McKeever and David Baldeon inject a little youth in the Marvelverse with realistic characterization of five young adults and supporting cast. A solid foundation is built for our heroes to form a team of their own and I'm excited to see where things go for the Young Allies. Their first battle proves to be against the B@stards of Evil, who at...

Awesome x3! 0

I always liked Jade of Infinity Inc., but she was never one of my top favorites DC characters. I did, however, enjoy the romantic  triangle between my favorite heroine, Donna Troy, favorite Green Lantern Kyle Rayner, and herself. Eventually I grew to love the idea of Kyle and Jade (Jennifer-Lynne Hayden) as a couple, but tragically Jenni-Lynne was killed in the Infinite Crisis. But Jade has returned and whats' more, her return to Earth has sparked another reunion between the Ju...

GO for it! 0

It seems very few comic book fans respect and love Allison Blaire like I do - thankfully writer Jim McCann is one of those people! An aspiring singer and entertainer who is gifted (or cursed) with mutant powers, Ali has done her damnedest to stay true to herself by not being swept away or under the rug by Hollywood life or mutant hysteria. With this one-shot, fans and new readers catch up with the Dazzler as she comes to grips with her responsibilities to her family, her career, her powers, and ...

I Emplore You To Read My Review Before Purchasing This Book 0

There's a new team of Titans and the majority are enemies of various members of past teams of Titans, led by, none other than, Deathstroke, Enemy Number One to the original new Teen Titans. This issue doesn't reveal Slade's true reasons for drafting his new crew, but it's evident that this band of villains will be up to no good under the Titans name. Actually there isn't a whole lot of indepth characterization in this special, everyone's reasons for joining their new leader are pretty obvio...

Minor Quibble Causes Major Issue 0

I've been an avid WONDER WOMAN reader for over twenty years and a DC Comics fan just as long, so I hope that other readers understand why I appreciate a strong level of continuity. With that said, one small scene in this issue, within the origin of Diana's new foe, her "aunt" Astarte, this whole issue was blown for me and became a mess. Using the Golden Lasso of Truth, the Amazing Amazon forces Astarte to explain her claims of being related to the Princess. Apparently a young girl, Astarte, ...

Happy Birthday, She-Hulk! 0

Marvel Comics has an odd way of promoting a character that was created in the decade of one-hit wonders, who not only survived, but has thrived for thirty years! Okay, okay,  maybe "thrived" is the wrong word, but there's no denying that the She-Hulk has built a strong and loyal fan base over the years through three canceled series, as a member of the Avengers, Fantastic Four, Defenders, the Lady Liberators, and even ... Fantastic Force (?!). But unfortunately despite some heavy talent and super...

With Friends Like These -- 0

I'm a sucker for stories that involve superheroes getting together in their secret identities and nowadays there seems to be fewer and fewer. Not only that, but issue #33 involves three of my favorite characters, Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and Zatanna. Without giving too much away, this story from the past shows the sorceress, Zatanna, insisting on a girls night out and it isn't until the very end that readers find out why and also how she confided in Princess Diana before hand. Zee's motiv...

At Least the REAL She-Hulk Returns! 0

This series is sort of hard to like if you're not following the main storyline, " Fall of the Hulks", which I'm not. That aside, this issue continues to fill in gaps as to what all three She-Hulks have been doing off panel and as to how they become involved with the other characters of the focused story. My only purpose for reading this happens in issue #2, with the return of the original She-Hulk, Jennifer Walters, who was kidnapped and used against her will. The other female Hulks just d...

My Pick of the Week! 0

Issue #44 of Justice League of America is my pick of the week for favorite comic book from my short stack of April 21st! Why? It's really simple, James Robinson understands Dick Grayson and Donna Troy. Robinson has both heroes acting like a team with new JLA members Starman and Congorilla and nails their personalities as they continue to evolve into a working unit. I'm a little disappointed that we don't see other members like Red Tornado, Cyborg, or Dr. Light operating with th...

Can't Believe My Words 0

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I cannot believe I've become a Green Arrow fan. Issue #32 was the clincher and despite there's no physical action between heroes and villains, there's so much emotional action and interpersonal drama with all the characters involved. Readers begin to see the fall out of Rise and Fall and Ollie truly sees who his real friends are and who can no longer stand beside him. Some of this may shock readers, I know I was stunned by the Black Canary's decision, as wel...

A Skip In the Groove of the Record 0

Things seemed to be progressively building with the current, and possibly biggest, line up of the Justice League of America. Unfortunately because it is so large, members of the team begin getting in the way of one another and two new and somewhat mysterious foes manage to escape. In the meantime Green Arrow and a still disassembled Red Tornado battle on the satellite HQ with Dr. Impossible and still more enemies who remain unknown (but closely resemble the ...

 Ugh. Awful. Pitiful. Surreal. Is this really the Teen Titans? I hardly think so. Poor art and a weaker story with shotty dialogue has not improved in months. I was planning on holding out until the Ravager back up story concluded, but after this book did such a poor job reintroducing Superboy and Kid Flash to the ranks of the team, this will be my last issue. Oh, I forgot to add, pathetic.   ~ Hype  ...

New Foes & New Excitement! 0

 This was an interesting issue of Wonder Woman because there’s a lot to like. First we see the return of Green Lanterns Procanon Kaa and Kho Kharhi, who were introduced a few years ago in this series and became allies of Princess Diana. What happens to them is incredibly eerie and a terrific introduction to what I guess can be called, the Society of the Silver Serpent. Apparently this army of intergalactic women goes from planet to planet conquering its inhabitants, enlisting the strongest of ea...

Returning To His Roots 0

Following Justice League: Rise and Fall, Oliver Queen is losing friends and his family in quick succession as he pushes best friend, Green Lantern, wife, Black Canary, and former teammate, Flash, away in his pursuit of trigger man, Electrocutioner, who destroyed Star City, and killed Queen's granddaughter. Unfortunately, Arrow is also dealing with the fall out of Blackest Night that revealed some of his very dirty secrets to his son, Connor Hawke. Connor remains on patrol against looters, but...

Surprise, Surprise! 0

J.T. Krul and Geraldo Borges actually surprised me with the complete and utter fall of Red Arrow, AKA Roy Harper. With the recent loss of his daughter and arm, I thought this would be a simple cliched story of a hero turning his back on everything he believes in and toeing the line between hero/villain. But that's not exactly what we get. What's provided is a tale of a very human young man who's made some seriously wrong decisions, finally made right, proven to be a good person and a loving fath...

Not Quite the "End of An Era" 0

Longtime Titans and Teen Titans editor, Eddie Berganza, writes such a compelling story of the founding five Titans that, quite possibly, if this were the last Titans tale ever told, I would be satisfied. That is except the premise is a sort of deathwatch at the bedside of damaged Titan and Justice Leaguer, Red Arrow, former Speedy. No, veteran hero Roy Harper isn't dying per say, but with the loss of his arm, infected by a deadly nanite virus, and the death of his young daughter, we may be witne...

Kill Him Already 0

 I've never been a big fan of Green Arrow. Oliver Queen is the type of guy I would detest in real life, a real macho, pig-headed, often times arrogant a-hole. Ugh, in fact he's just my type, because like in life, he's that guy who means well and essentially has his heart in the right place. I've fallen for 'em again and again, so I suppose I relate more with Green Arrow's wife, Black Canary. Just like Dinah Lance, I'm usually right, and my partner is wrong - no ego here, just the truth,. ...

A Tragic End 0

What a horrible end to a series that used to be at the top of my "Must Read" list. This final issue would have been a perfect opportunity to reflect on the many changes Ms. Marvel has been through and a chance to really see how Mystique has had a subversive influence on Carol's life in those years (and why), instead reflections and motivations are thrown in to gloss the story as an afterthought. Absolutely awful and disappointing and I don't even care the corrupted Captain Marvel doppelganger - ...

Bring On the Real She-Hulk Already! 0

A lot goes on in this first issue of Savage She-Hulks #1, some is great, some of it totally confusing. The confusing parts are due to the fact that I'm not following the, "Fall of the Hulks", storyline. I'm only interested in this book for one reason, the sensational She-Hulk, Jennifer Walters. You can imagine my disappointment when I discovered that Ms. Walters only has one panel worth of an appearance.   This issue can be judged by it's cover for the most part because it's basically dedicated ...

An All Too Human Green Arrow 0

Let me start with a couple of things. One, I didn't read Justice League: Cry For Justice based on horrid reviews I've been reading since it's first issue. Second, I'm not a huge fan of Silver Age characters like Hal Jordan as Green Lantern, Barry Allen as the Flash, or even Oliver Queen as Green Arrow. I grew up in the '90s, so I spent my childhood with Kyle Rayner, Wally West, and Connor Hawke. Despite that this one shot involved many things I'm uninterested in, I did enjoy this book -- for the...

Is This Truly the End? 0

No, no, no -- this can't be how this series is ending! Has Marvel Comics and Brian Reed given up on Ms. Marvel entirely?! Why? The fans haven't, well not completely, but with watered down material like this, you can't blame them if they do. What I mean to say is that although there's an interesting mystery developing concerning the appearance of the thought-dead Captain Marvel, there's a senseless mini-battle between one of Mystique's henchman and our star, but there's no real explanation as to ...

This Is Why Wonder Woman Kicks Ass! 0

Is there anyone Gail Simone can't write?! Power Girl's guest appearance is fantastic as she battles Wonder Woman after being coerced by the five very creepy sons of Ares. There's great personal narration from both super powered women as they reflect on their opinions of their opponent. And while I was a tad disappointed that it's being made to seem that Karen is as powerful as Diana, it was wonderful to see that the Amazing Amazon's high level of martial skills and diplomacy separate her  from o...

Disaster With a Double "T" 0

The title continues to slide further and further into a horrendous mess with mischaracterization, stilted dialogue, and random pacing - all of which can be blamed on the writer, Felicia D. Henderson. I've been patient with Henderson, giving her a chance to make improvements as she became more familiar with the Titans, but instead after four issues this team of seasoned superheroes has made little impact as a crime fighting unit and remain embattled colleagues over ridiculous and unseemly issues....

Not Completely the End 0

Okay, okay, so this two-part story completely fell apart at the end. First, I didn't think it was possible, but Unzueta's art was worse than it ever was before. It was like the artist really didn't care about the outcome of the printed page. Second, this tale would have presented the perfect segue for the TItans to say good-bye to their HQ and hello to the JLA satellite. Unfortunately that doesn't happen -- nothing really does.   Starfire doesn't overcome her feeling of stifled emotions, she doe...

Spreading Love Is Never Easy 0

Spreading the power of love is never easy, even for someone as powerful as Wonder Woman! Greg Rucka hasn't lost his touch with the Amazing Amazon years after his stellar run on the regular Wonder Woman series, but that's not to say there where huge holes with this issue that left me scratching my head. First, let me point out the Nicola Scott redeems herself after last issue's so-so work, perhaps it's that a single inker works over the artist's work and not several as in the past. But what we ha...

Totally Cool! 0

There's plenty of excitement in this issue as Wonder Woman battles a mythical serpent AND Power Girl, both influenced by the evil and dastardly creepy sons of Ares. What's more, Princess Diana finally has the chance to visit one of her best friends, Etta Candy, after her recent defeat at the hands of Genocide. Both the narrative by Wonder Woman and the dialogue between the women is so absolutely dead on for both characters and allows them to be realistically portrayed. I love it! While it isn't ...

Greatest What? 0

Let me start off this short review by saying, I love the way the new lineup of the Justice League is shaping up! Past members of the Titans deserve the status that being a Leaguer represents and I expect nothing but greatness from Cyborg, Donna, Batman (Dick Grayson), and Starfire. I'm also happy that Dr. Light is remaining with the team, but I can't wait till Kimi finds her backbone again and becomes the b*tch of the team (it's so much fun!). Unfortunately because of recent events in Justice Le...

This Is a Switch 0

 This was a reintroduction of sorts for me to an era of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman’s life that I know very little about, the time that the Amazon Princess was an agent of the United Nations. Also in this issue I learned that though Steve Trevor had been killed in the loss-of-super powers Wonder Woman era, he’s been revived here in ’76, having adopted the last name, “Howard.” Apparently both Steve and Diana are finding it troublesome to cope with his resurrection as both have changed much in the t...

A Fitting Farewell 0

 While the stories of this series have been fractured pieces of a whole there remains continuity in the Titans-verse and the DC Universe entire – I LOVE THIS! Krul’s story brings us closer to the inevitable end of this chapter of the East Coast Titans, but highlights the strong bonds between the core members. I loved the scenes between former couples Batman (Nightwing) and Starfire, and Red Arrow (Arsenal) and Donna Troy. I hope this heralds the start of romance sparks for all four again -- ! Th...

A Fictional Character Becomes a Real-Life Inspiration 0

 This book should be so much better with Rucka and Scott at the helm, but the truth is, it’s falling flat as both a Blackest Night tie-in and a Wonder Woman comic. Firstly, the inks on top of Scott’s work do not do them justice. We have an exceptional artist who’s work isn’t shining through, but it also doesn’t help that the story doesn’t reach the depths that it could. Issue #2 isn’t much of a continuation of last issue, rather it’s an extended scene(s) from Blackest Night #6. I would have lo...

It seems Dr. Light is well on her way to proving herself as a heroine of the League, but just when Vixen was truly showing her potential as a member, it seems she may be forced to resign due to injuries both physical and emotional.

  I’ve been waiting for this issue for quite some time since Donna Troy has been my long-time favorite Titan. This issue continues to show the Titans splitting apart as they all discover news paths towards living on their own. For Donna in particular this is important since she’s accurately described here as being the den mother and big sister to the team and never truly being her own person. This all changes when Donna politely turns her back on her friends for a single night and accepts a free...
