    Diana: Princess of the Amazons sold 200K copies.

    There is a market for these characters out there. The trouble is that neither DC nor the direct market has been able to reach those readers.

    Not really much to say about this issue. Art was OK, but never particularly interesting—and did it have the exact same frame on page 18 and 19? Dialogue was mostly infodumpy. I never got any feel for...

    I think there are very few quality artists who are able to keep up with such a schedule long-term.

    I remember such a rumour going around here, possibly due to some slight change in Wonder Woman's...

    DiDio was fired a month ago. The stories published today were likely finished from an editorial standpoint at that time, and ready to go into physical production. I seriously think that the DC's...

    What I'd really like to see is a better and more interesting view of the Bana-Mighdall and their split from the Themysciran Amazons.

    I think that's a huge assertion that isn't justified.

    Sure, there is more competition in the form of movies and animation and computer games, but kids still read. The reason they don't read comics...

    I think that's a long-term struggle within DC. When Diana: Princess of the Amazons sells 200K copies and ends up on the NYTimes bestseller list, then either the old guard of DC has to admit that...

    We have lost a giant: Albert Uderzo. Together with René Goscinny he created Asterix.

    If we look at the book market, things have started to develop a bit there (at least for some publishers).

    Basically, what you're paying for isn't the product, but for early access, and tied to the...

    Rob Allen, for rage over a fundamentally trivial thing, relatable for most of us here, I think.

    Honourable mention to Nschornhorst for Galaxy Brain Hulk.

    Brubaker's Catwoman is definitely morally gray. Some of the stories (like Joyride) are explicitly questioning Batman's morals.

    Well, when I read your post #16 I got a lot of stuff about Diana's mission not being achievable, or having a conflict between the Amazons and Diana on how she manages to achieve (or not) her mission....

    Quite possibly.

    But I think there is an imbalance here. Rather than focusing on the things that the Amazons can't teach us, I think it'd be much more fruitful and interesting—and better for the...

    I have had some thoughts about all this, on various levels, and I also want to question some of your assumptions.

    First, on a strict meta-narrative level, is that the Amazons to me should be an...

    Brubaker's run drops in on the middle of the action, but I followed along easily enough. He did a good job of introducing context as needed.

    But it's not a story for readers who expect to be...

    A lot of this boils down to how one views the Amazons, and their role in world history. I have my own idea that they should be nymphs of civilisation, and were humanity's first guides and teachers.

    A huge problem is that very few writers have managed to write—or even attempted to write—an ambassador-style Wonder Woman.

    The closest attempt—and I use that word judiciously—in recent times was...

    On the title, this is a classic origin story. It's as much an Oracle story as, say, Born of Hope.

    I think you're being unfair to Marieke Nijkamp, and comparing the book you got with the book that you wanted, rather than reading the book that you got.
