I didn't realize Gail Simone had been writing Wonder Woman. Mistake on my part. I really enjoy her stuff on DC, so I think I will pick this up. Sounds great.
Naturally, your WW costume looks great, love the tiara. Speaking of tiaras.......did you know that G-Man has a Wonder Woman tiara? I kid you not.
I believe the "G" in G-Man stands for "Gender Confusion". I Keed, I Keed. Bwaa Haa Haaa.!
I've been reading it, not buying it (sorry)
The last issue really sucked me in once I read that Genocide is Wonder Woman (oh snap!)
When I read that I was reminded of this pic of WW I saw in her gallery. Is it related, probably not but you never know.
Lol again, it's great to watch you reviews cuz i don't have to bother picking up the series. Gail Simone is great on Secret Six, I think i'll give this series a shot. WW has alway been a interesting character but very rarely written well.
wonder woman always seems so serious in her book, almost personality-less. Shes all work and no play and that is dull. This arc has seemed really irrelevant to everything in the DCU. Look at the battle for the cowl and the mass cancellations. The absence of Batman shows up in other books like Supergirl as well. New Krypton has 3 and maybe 4 with adventure comics it really effects and so it seems to have big consequences. Then there is Blackest Night coming up and Flash Rebirth which effected FInal Crisis considerably. This Olympian story and the whole genocide thing is so limited.
I got sold a bunch of comics from this guy last year and the first two issues of the "Rise" arc were included. I threw them in a bag and put them in a box, unread. Looks like I'll have to find them.
This looks case and point why there have been 52 issues of TRINITY. Superman, Batman, and Wonder Babe have ALL been dealing with their own, serious issues(no pun intendo) over the past year. So they gave us all three in 52 issues of madcap tales. Some of it has been good, some of it, eeeeh. I really feel like an idiot though, for not putting 2 and 2 together.
I've never gone out of my way to get my hands on Wonder Woman comics. When I was young and first getting into comic books, I thought that girls bought WW, and SPIDER-WOMAN, etc. I looked at it in the same vein as boys had HE-MAN, and the little ladies then had SHE-RA or BARBIE even. I was 7. I obviously don't think like a 7 year old about comics anymore. That can be debated about other things but that's another adventure. Once I started "collecting" then I got a hold of Perez's WW. Bangin'. Since then, I have had much respect for the character because she can whip Batman or Superman's ass if the scales are just slightly tipped in her favor. Ok, maybe not Superman. = ) Unless Diana's rocking a magic sword/dagger of whatever. But I said the scales needed to be tipped. I'll stop now.
Anyway, I'll pick up this trade for knowledge. It looks action packed. Thanks for the video review. A future WW named GENOCIDE. It's gotta be craziness. SOLD, I say!

I have to agree with this statement. It's the only reason I'm not loving the Wonder Woman series right now. The story is good but Wonder Woman herself isn't very interesting. I was expecting more emotional weight from her when Genocide beat her and stole her lasso. Like the part where Athena is telling her she has already given up, I just didn't feel that. There wasn't a moment I remember that made me feel how she feels or sees how she sees things. It was all about, geneocide has my lasso and I have to get it back. Actually most of the characters in this story seem lifeless. I wasn't really feeling anything for Candy either. It sort of seem set up. It's good writing but with out the soulful depth. This should mean more but it doesn't. I think gail Simone is a good writer but at times her plots get in the way of good charaterization, as in Birds of Prey. Or like in Secret Six, the characters are good but the plots are really strong. She needs to find a better balance. And with Wonder Woman, I think it's a lot harder to do because you're dealing with more larger than life characters. It's more what they symbolize than what they say and do. It's all about meaning and motivation. It needs to be done more like a greek play, anice mix of comedy and tragedy however the main focus should be on the characters and the reason they are going through what they are going. It can't jsut happen without consequence or merit.
I'll just say this. Not only am I reading Gails "Wonder Woman", it's the ONLY DC COMIC I'm buying these days. The whole Umpty-Flippin'-Crisis nonsense finally chased me away from most of the poor, patchwork DC Universe for good. I can't keep up with all the rape of once classic characters. Only Gails work pleases me anymore.
