    Meh.
    Grant Morrison's WW is one of the WW depictions that I actively avoid.
    It was just so...blah.

    I give him credit for wanting to do the character better after he felt didn't do her justice in his JL run or Final Crisis (something that can't really be said for other writers), but yeah I'm not big on Diana herself in the Earth One books. Seems like Morrison's a bit more interested in Marston and his ideas than her.

    Ugh, Max Lord = buzzkill. Hopefully there's a secret Golden Age villain somewhere in this volume.

    I'd even settle for Blakfu.

    I had more of an issue with his Hippolyta than Diana, though more so in the first volume than the second.
    Diana herself is fun and a breath of fresh air at least compared to the two runs the books came out during at the time, Finch and Wilson. Where the former she was, well, written by Finch. And a mostly ineffectual navel gazer in the latter.

    Yeah, I’m not on the hot on the books but they were a breath of fresh air compared to what mainline Diana was getting at the time aside from Rucka.

    I had some some problems with Hippolyta also, though I didn’t think her portrayal was that far removed from how she’s usually written. Though I guess that gets into the issue of how Hippolyta is written in general (main books or elseworlds)

    I'm excited for the book. I haven't read the Earth One volumes yet, but I've read nothing but great reviews for Volume 2 from comic reviewers I trust. Personally, I'm super excited Maxwell Lord is the big bad of this Volume. I hope he continues to show up in the Wonderverse.

    Honestly, I don't think Hippolyta's actions in these books would even crack a top 10 list of "Shadiest things Hippolyta has done in the name of protecting her daughter." Though that may be damning with faint praise.

    Though the worst thing is the first book having Diana speculate that the Amazons will kill Steve humanely for stumbling on the island, but volume 2 showed they don't do that.
