    I liked the idea of having Sue operate in a spy adventure, and I think Waid has managed to characterise her decently enough (with only some few missteps on the way). But the plotting here is just...

    Basically, all the ways that Warren Johnson talks what he is doing concretely about this is about "worst part of ourselves", or "rough and tumble", or "down and dirty feel". And going that direction...

    Anything of his you can recommend?

    For what it's worth, my experience as a long-time reader is that showing the pointlessness of violence and revenge by showing more violence is a really hard...

    There were some discussion about the Mera, Catwoman, and Raven books, but not that much. But the people who read them tended to like them. Haven't seen much discussion about the Harley Quinn book.

    So finally a Black Label Wonder Woman book! That's great! (Yeah, I know there is the Rucka title, but it seems stuck somewhere.)

    But it's written by a dude with rather few writing credits that I...

    Having nearly every woman look alike is a common fault for comics artists, and Derenick (and most of the other artists) have consistently been moving away from Atlantiades's more androgynous form, as...

    I'm getting more than a little set of preconceptions here, like that having Steve leave the military would be to "nerf" him, or that softness and gentleness shouldn't be desirable traits for a man?

    I generally favour thematic depth and consequences over slavishly keeping consistency, so I can't fault Wilson for her choice. Otherwise you will always and forever shackle good writers to decisions...

    Agreed, which is also why I've been pushing for moving Steve out of the military for some time now.

    Perhaps the most important issue with Steve is the lack of stories surrounding him. The movie...

    If there are any stories which show the dangers of editorial mandates regarding scheduling (a must when it comes to large events like YotV), I believe this should be one.

    Congratulations!

    Maybe it would lean a bit too hard onto the fourth wall for DC's taste, and with an implied critique of the character that is DC's golden goose.
