    Default WW page by Xermanico in Green Lantern: Blackstars #2

    She's got the sword and looks to be about to take out a satyr on one page in the preview.

    Even though "hack" "chop" "kill" Wonder Woman is not my favorite, I just have to say that his art *looks* *so* *good*, and in this image, especially the perspective. And if you scroll through the whole preview, you can also see the pencils.

    I wish he could stay on WW!

    I keep wondering: Why is this guy not a SUPERSTAR yet?!?

    The quality is certainly there. I just wish more people would appreciate it and give his artwork all the recognition and buzz it deserves.

    Not too bothered by her being stab happy considering the context and all the Earth's heroes are going to OOC. Morrison has more than enough good will to go there with Batman and Superman, and regardless of what one feels about Earth One, his Wonder Woman wouldn't be doing this under normal circumstances either. it may be a bit of a "Take That!" to the current trend of putting a sword in her hand.

    Like the art from Xermanico. He was the only consistently good artist in the Wilson run.

    I don't like it, his style isn't crisp or clean enough for me

    Same here. Diana doesn't look very attractive in this piece.

    Because there wasn't enough whining about Wonder Woman using lethal force some times from writers and fans.

    I just find this rich given Morrison's knee jerk reaction to BvS Diana using a sword yet his take on a solo Wonder Woman book was a thousand times more offensive to the character and feminism than anything seen in BvS or most of what's been done with Diana outside of Azzarello and Miller.

    I'd still take Morrison's Diana and her world over Wilson and Robinson any day of the week.

    You should be so lucky. Earth:1 is a damn good Wonder Woman book as far as Iím concerned, canít wait for chapter 3

    Me too. Warts and all (and in fairness, there are definitely warts or at least half developed ideas that need more space).

    They also look better in comparison to the main book considering the timing of when each came out. First came out while we were in the middle of the Finch run. Second came out either during Robinson or Wilson. It's not as good as Rucka's run (either of them), but certainly better than anything else we've gotten recently.

    I’ve read and reread chapter 1&2 and I’m still not completely sure what Morrison is getting at, tbh I don’t know what to make of some his ideas, they kinda strike me as half-baked but I actually like that about WW:Earth-1, it’s a very nice change of pace from the ubiquitous woke politics in entertainment. Plus the artwork is exquisite

    Wonder Woman: Earth One is politically woke too, hence normal sized Dr. Psycho, body positive Beth Candy, A.A. Steve, the Amazons' conversion therapy of the Uberfraulein not working and the constant questioning of their ideals and methods. It's all in how you look at it, which makes it great along with the glorious art.

    part of the problem may be, while he's not wrong to question the themes of the Golden Age comics, there isn't much space to really explore what the Amazons (and Marston) were doing right. I think there are too many ideas squeezed into too little space. I know the idea would terrify some, but a longer ongoing run would give this more space. I'd certainly prefer it to the non-Rucka stuff we've gotten recently.

    it wins for Etta, Psycho and Paula though. And Diana is fun. I love the little "Serious? Not me!" moment when she rescues Psycho.

    Morrison does revisit those old GA themes with a bit of a modern sensibility but he’s never dogmatic about it, it’s all a bit ambiguous and open to interpretation. He didn’t race bend Steve just to meet a diversity quota, and I think a dwarf just wouldn’t be as a effective as a PUA, I don’t believe “ableism” factored into it. WW:Earth-1 is also not particularly woke in how it handles body-positivity

    Like I said it's all in how you look at it, I'm as liberal as can be and just fine with his take so far.
