Will there be a Wonder Woman: Earth One?

#1 Posted by Archlord (140 posts) - - Show Bio

I loved Superman Earth One, and looking forward very much to Batman: Earth One, do you think there will be a Wonder Woman: Earth One?

@Archlord: Hard to say, she is not as popular a character and often gets overlooked.

Hope so, I would buy it. Would be cool if they got an artist like Mauro Cascioli to draw it, I love his work. I would also like to see Power Girl with an Earth-One book, and the Marvel Family, and maybe a Earth-One book about the League of Assasins.

WOULD LOVE IT. I believe there were murmurs about that actually happening, and I think I read somewhere about Grant Morrison possibly getting his hands on Diana. We'll have to wait and see.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

@azza04: Earth One power girl wouldn't work. 
 
Well they did say there are going to be other Earth One books and I would love a Wonder Woman one. We will see.

I'd totally go for that. But a host of internet voices aside, I'm not sure whether the market is really encouraging of such a thing. I'd actually love to see E1 Supes, Bats, WW, GL and Flash, then an E1 JL, followed by further amendments, like Aquaman and Martian Manhunter.

There had been talk, several years ago, of doing an All Star Wonder Woman series, drawn by Adam Hughes. Not sure why this project stalled, but it seems like an idea that could be dovetailed into an Earth One Wonder Woman graphic novel. With Hughes doing the artwork, you know it would sell.

I think if anything follows for 2013, it will be a Batman Earth One vol. 2 and a Wonder Woman Earth One

When the Superman Earth One was being promoted, DC had mentioned starting the initiative off for the "Big Three" which is in fact Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. The books so far have been amazing, go check out my reviews for the Superman and Batman Earth One books on my hubpages account.

If I'm not mistaken, her DVD sales do well enough to warrant her own Earth One. Especially with all the buzz with Superman and Batman's Earth One's. Plus, if they are going to a Justice League and/or a Wonder Woman movie it would be good to have some more fresh material out there for her character.

He said he was 30 pages into this(somebody said this in their post) and he did research alot of research.on the feminist theory.This book will define WW on who his is because it will take her back to her roots.Grant Morrsion seems to know what's he's doing.

"The 'Action Comics' run concludes with issue #16, 'Batman Incorporated' wraps up my take with issue #12, and after that I don’t have any plans for monthly superhero books for a while. 'Multiversity' is eight issues and I’m 30-odd pages into a Wonder Woman project but those are finite stories."

I'm assuming that he's working on an earth one wonder woman.I think it's safe to assume that he is working on it.

Why? If he was, why would he just say so, instead of vaguely going "WW project"? There is absolutely no reason to assume this is an EO project anymore than a Secret Origins or All-Star or anything else for that matter.

They can't even get one Wonder Woman concept down let alone another one.

No there won't be a Wonder Woman: Earth 1

Because they stopped doing the all star line. All star wonder woman was supposed to be written and drawn by adam hughes.

It could be a secret origins, but it doesn't really makes sense because then Morrison would have to tie that one into the current WW story and if anything we know, he loves to come up with his own stuff. So its possible that its an elseworld story.

Looking at how much success DC had with earth one line, I'm sure it'll be a WW earth one.

I was a bit lukewarm to Superman: Earth One, but after Batman: Earth One I'd LOVE to see them do Wonder Woman next!

Uhg, not a fan of Morrison, he is so full of himself. I don't care if he writes a Earth One Wonder Woman story, but I hope they keep him off of the Wonder Woman title.

full of himself? how did you get that?

Also, why does his character matters to you? Shouldn't his writing be more important? Unless you're saying you hate his writing and you're not a fan of Wonder Woman.

#28 Posted by Katie24 (488 posts) - - Show Bio

@sethysquare: When he was writing his plot and storyline for Action Comics, he didn't share any of his plans with the creative team working on the Superman title, which makes it kinda hard to stay true to continuity for the Superman team. I mean how can you write a good today Superman comic when you have know idea of his past. He is also been known to completely discard character histories and previous story lines the minute he takes over a comic. I personally find his writing to be pretentious. And yes his character matters to me because ones character often shines through to their work and I don't like giving my money to blow hearts. I am a huge Wonder Woman fan, and that's why I would like a writer I don't like to stay off of a book that involves a character I do like. Furthermore, I don't know why you are getting so worked up over my personal opinion of a writer. I happen to love Greg Rucka's writing, and if some random person on here said they didn't I wouldn't take it personally.

#29 Posted by sethysquare (3843 posts) - - Show Bio

@Katie24: You're wrong. It wasn't that he didn't share plans with the creative team working on the Superman title, he had to tell the editors his plan. But since its a new universe, he could have several ideas and when the book started he was pretty much at a place where he was bouncing between ideas and can't decide on which on to go through. In order for Perez to continue writing, Perez need to know Morrison's plans at least 3 months before they published issue 1 and he needs to know all these plans that was impossible for Morrison to give. Other than that the editors had to liaise with WB because Superman is their flagship character and with the movie out, they could not let Superman depart too much from the movie version, at the same time WB needs to make Superman as different and modern as possible but yet made sure what is iconic to him stays iconic. There are more than one elements to the story you hear from Perez. He said it himself, DC needed to be accountable to WB and even Justice League and DC itself because they wanted to relaunch Superman as the first superhero to appear in DC universe. Also, this does not excuse Perez from writing a bad story (I would know, I stuck through with it). Also Morrison did not completely discard character histories and previous storylines. Batman is still Batman. Superman is still Superman. Talking about ignoring past stories, writers like Azzarello and Giffen are much more guilty of that than Morrison.

Personally I love Wonder Woman, despite my love for the creator or not, I would almost always give the book a try. If I have doubts about the writer's writing, I would at least wait for reviews to come in before I decide if I want to read it. Which is why I find that I could not understand your logic. If I love the character, I'm buying it because of the love for the character and writing, not the morality or character of the writer.

Also, you are entitled to your opinion, but since you posted a reply, why can't I ask you to validate that? Its a forum after all. I don't think I am worked up over it, I never called you names or insulted you. I'm just merely questioning you logic and supplementing your replies with my logic. If you think its rude of me to ask you the questions I did, you can simply not reply or say you don't feel like replying. But its a forum and since you did, so I replied with mine. Not sure if this is considered "getting so worked up" to you.

@sethysquare: I tend to be one of those those comic book readers who follow writers I like and not characters. However there are a few titles I always give a try when new creative teams come on board (unless the writer or artist is someone I completely despise like Frank Miller, Chuck Dixon, Rob Liefeld or Greg Land.) Wonder Woman is one of those titles and if Morrison starts writing for it I will give it a chance, but based on his other super hero comics that I've read, my hopes aren't up.

I would rather have an All Star Wonder Woman. I loved All Star Superman, and given the fact that we just recently had the revamp with a simplified origin that many people aren't a fan of, I think more WW fans would be interested in a classic, larger-than-life rendition of the character than another modern gritty take.

Yup.

Adam Hughes was once attached to All Star Wonder Woman. Which, unfortunately, never transpired.

There won't be an all star Wonder Woman because the all star line is dead. If you want to know what happened to it, I'll go as far to say frank miller happened to it.

@Skewer: What did Frank Miller do to it?

#41 Posted by Skewer (325 posts) - - Show Bio

He wrote all star batman and robin: the boy wonder. The result of that book was that it wasn't well received, sales plummeted to the point that it was cancelled and only made it to 9 or 10 issues. The entire all star line was died as a result of that godawful book.
