How Nice For You

Hahaha I love how The Olympian tells Wonder Woman that he was considered the greatest warrior who ever lived and she says “How Nice For You!” and attacks him. That is so Diana and is why I love her character. She may be hard to relate to compared to Clark and Bruce, but she is the bad ass of the trinity. I loved to see that Giganta is still dating Ryan Choi – I miss him and I wish that he was going to be in the Justice League instead of boring old Ray Palmer. It was all fun to see Wonder Woman teaming up with Giganta but I hope it doesn’t become a regular. Damn this book is good right now.

What’s Not To Love About This?

Does Simone know how to write some great dialogue or what? James Robinson could learn a thing or two from her. I love the balance between action and dialogue in this series, it is damn perfect! Seriously anyone who has been hating on the character of Wonder Woman or Simone’s run in general are idiotic. What is not to love here! Romance, action, drama…it’s all here. I like how Gail portrays a friendship between Dinah and Diana. It is something that Diana really needs. I am looking forward to seeing how Black Canary “fixes” Wonder Woman’s life. Because she does need a new personal life since the Department of Metahuman Affairds is no more. The commentary on the action figures was hilarious. And I am glad that Nemesis is breaking up with Wonder Woman, I have never been a big fan of their relationship and she doesn’t love him anyway.

No More Arena Fighting!

Yes because after a great storyline like “Rise of the Olympian” we really needed yet another metahuman fighting in arena storyline. This got old the second time DC did it, and they have done it 3,000 more times then that! I mean it is great to have Simone writing Black Canary again but this issue really didn’t do anything for me. I have seen this same situation too many times.

What A Great Storyline

The Rise of the Olypian comes to an end in this issue when Achilles takes over leadership of the Amazons and Wonder Woman rejects Zeus and says goodbye to her mother. I really enjoyed it and it was the perfect ending in that it was a true ending but left it open ended for Genocide’s eventual return. I think Simone has created a great new villain for Diana. I also like that Diana is not as loyal to the Gods as her mother is, probably because since she has lived so long in America she has taken on American ideals herself about blind loyalty. I am not sure where Simone will take Diana next, but I can’t way to see.

Best Fight Ever!

Now that was a mother fucking battle! Seriously, that was the best fighting issue I have EVER seen in a comic. I am utterly impressed and after this issue I have to call myself a Wonder Woman fan. I have always loved the character, but now I am a F-A-N thanks to Simone and Lopestri. Lopestri’s art is breathtaking and he really shows how he can draw Diana. One of the most disgusting moments, when Diana pulls her lasso out of Genocide’s body; it is done with such class, no overly-done blood like if it was drawn by Eddy Barrows or an artist like that. If you like action at all in comics, pick this up! And Diana admits she doesn’t love Nemesis, I like that because it is honest and I have never really liked their relationship that much. Why did I not hear anything about this issue before I read it? This was fantastic.

Lots of Revelations

Unfortunately, I had been spoiled that Genocide was truly the future Diana before I read this issue, but I was disappointed to hear that. I wish people had explained it to me further because this issue reveals that she is not the future Diana but the corpse of Diana possessed by the essence of Ares. I like that a lot better. This issue revealed a lot. Ares is behind basically everything from Genocide to Cheetah’s motivations to the rise of the Olympian. Awesome. I like how all of this is starting to fit together nicely. I wonder why the artist was changed this issue but it doesn’t really matter, Chang does a good fill-in. I really hope Etta Candy wakes up from her coma just in time to kick some ass. That will be an awesome moment.

Getting Good

After Diana’s defeat by Genocide again, everything has gone to hell. Genocide has kidnapped Etta Candy, Zeus is killing gods, and it looks like Athena may have died. Oh and Steve Trevor is back, looking for his wife. I always thought he was older then that? Maybe I am just thinking of something else. Cheetah is pretty powerful in this issue and Diana says so herself. I can’t really remember her being this powerful before? I am not sure. This is an action-packed arc and if you have never tried Wonder Woman before, this is really the time to start. This is getting good.
