    Thanks for the summary, Vordan!

    Interesting note from her about her view of Arthur's and Mera's characters and relationship. And I can understand why a lot of pop culture publishers are fond of...

    Not sure I agree with that. Sidelining Steve Trevor (and Etta Candy) was arguably the worst mistake that came out of the Pérez era (and I have no idea on whose idea it was to do so).

    I think it's better to say that McFarlane did here was low-density storytelling. That's something I've thought of when I read the old Golden Age Wonder Woman stories. The number of pages is somewhat...

    DC is large enough that they should be able to move around people onto titles as needed. I expect this title has been planned for at least half a year, probably more. So I'm going to interpret...

    If Diana needs an army, she simply gets out in front of the nearest demoralised or pinned down army unit, possibly but not necessarily shouting "follow me". See the third story of Wonder Woman #1, or...

    When it comes to archenemies, they are not created. They are built and developed. It's the stuff of tradition and mythology. There is really no particular reason why the Joker or Lex Luthor should be...

    I don't think the style was the problem, really. The problem really was that Nord's art put in the wrong emotional beats that the story needed and called for, and that he put the least effort into...

    Cannot hurt to try. I know that over in the Wonder Woman forum, the previews tend to often garner more discussion than the actual issues. One practical problem is that the previews for each issue...

    The top brass of DC doesn't have a good track record of dealing with sexism or harassment.

    That line of Azzarello's that "Canary, Huntress and Montoya have a lot of damaged baggage" leaves me even...

    Oracle as the core member, partnered with either Black Canary or Huntress. Feel free to add guests every now and then. Lady Blackhawk, Catwoman, Renee Montoya, or Lois Lane can all work well here.

    Another game classic, though maybe at the tail end of the period… and still as addictive as when it was new.

    I have very little faith in Azzarello's ability to write women, and now the Birds of Prey are pushed even more into just another bunch of Gotham vigilantes.

    Very much agreed. In a way, making Catwoman a former prostitute sort of goes against what I think the character is about: a woman in control of her own sexuality, and when she uses it it is for her...

    A really interesting one that I doubt many of you here have heard about: Dotty Virvelvind ("Dotty Whirlwind"). She was created by Sture Lönnerstrand, who was probably the first genre-aware writer of...

    Not sure about that, the act you linked was close-in stuff and mainly to look visually impressive. No catching, no tripping, no tossing. I'm sure there are ways to improve the use of the lasso, but...

    I do think Rucka can do at least one more Wonder Woman story, and a no-holds-barred, out-of-continuity story would probably be the best way to bring that about.

    Tricky story to discuss.

    Part of this is the malleable nature of Empress Hippolyta and Dimension Chi, which seems to have little relation to what we saw in the previous issue. If the phrase "I let...

    I'm not sure I'd want this to be ongoing books in any case. One to three issues, certainly no more than six. In a way, I'd say Hiketeia should be a model: one-off stories that explore the conflict...
