    This is true. At the same time, Derionoe appears to be taking an interesting risk, don't you think? When last seen on Paradise Island, Hera was allied with Diana, who's now an Olympian and may have...

    Me too--I definitely agree that "Meredith and David Finch’s run on Wonder Woman so far has been genuinely underwhelming to say the least," and that they haven't found a strong voice for Wonder Woman....

    It's one thing to accept the ultimate Amazon as the island's queen and protector; it would be another to "like" her as every Amazons' best friend. Derinoe needn't care if Donna's peers call her Clay,...

    To be fair, it is possible that they see having a father as an imperfection that they all share. Hermes said in issue 2 that Diana was considered the ultimate Amazon because she was born without...

    Maybe they (at least the humanoid ones) could be people from the missing villages, transformed by Hecate into bug-like minions?

    I'm pretty much assuming that Hecate's responsible for all those...

    That's just a more cynical-sounding (but, admittedly, less pretentious) way of saying the same thing I said. :) If she has enough common sense to not let her prejudices get in the way of getting the...

    So, then, wouldn't you have preferred a less Amazon-centric run from the Finches? They could have spent one page in issue 36 saying that Hippolyta, having been renaimated by Zeke, died in the war...

    Except that, as you say,



    Good point, even though you made it in a different context. :) Aleka's acceptance of her brothers means something because it's one of those rare triumphs of reality...

    Traditionally, "man scorned" wasn't a common motif because, unfortunately, most women most of the time were denied the liberty or power to scorn men. Still, male characters have made lots of dumb...

    I don't know if she "had to," but it's true that it would have been a shame, from my perspective, if she hadn't. A short, painless, natural "transformation" would have been no transformation at all,...

    They're enormously common "aberrations," as canonical as Cain killing Able out of jealousy or Achilles sulking by the ship because Agamemnon pissed him off. And often they're the kind of aberrations...

    Surely a half-prepared casserole would leave the next chef in a relay more flexibility; if no veggies have been added, the new chef can decide what veggies to add. (And Finch decided on "vegetative...

    I wouldn't call it "nursing a grudge"; as I said, I think we could see respect and affection underlying their sparring in issue 2 (before Strife showed up). But it doesn't seem strange to me that...

    On the other hand, part of Azz's precedent was showing how Diana began to reform the Amazons, and he shows this having an effect on Dessa and Aleka. To her credit, the Finches carry over the idea...

    Well, there is that. :) But here we see the blood on her hands, and idiomatically there's nothing that says "guilt" more than blood on your hands. It's even in Shakespeare; Lady Macbeth believes she...

    She doesn't seem used to it--if one could even get used to that--so maybe it has only been a couple of times so far. But I think it's one of the "physical manifestations" of being War that Hessia...

    "Relatable" I can understand, because we've all been adolescents, and Diana seems emotionally adolescent in a way I can remember and recognize, to some extent. But "grounded," to me, would imply...

    Can I ask what you mean by "grounded"? She doesn't seem grounded at all to my way of thinking, but you may have a different meaning of "grounded" in mind.

    I didn't find a lot to like in this issue, but I did kind of like learning that Diana created the council. It had seemed to come out of nowhere, but if it's a democratic institution that was created...

    I get where you're coming from and I respect your argument, but personally (and predictably, I'm sure :)), I don't think it does say that. "Caretaker" is just one role that Diana expects the Amazons...

    I enjoyed the argument and I'm glad we found some agreement. I can tell you, speaking only for myself, that the run appealed to at least one long-time Wonder Woman fan who had read little Azz before,...

    Hi, Wag. I was wondering when you'd jump into this one. It seemed like the kind of argument you'd be interested in.



    Is it a superhero comic? As you probably remember, Azz has told us several...
