    Default How good/bad is the Becky Cloonan Run?

    I stopped reading Wonder Woman after Steve Orlando run because all the negative stuff that i heard about Tamaki's run. So how has her sucessor fared, good? bad? meh?.

    I'm enjoying it. The most recent issue #780 works as a good jumping point if you don't want to read the previous 10 issues just to get caught up.

    Best run she's had in a very long time.

    It's a fun run.

    The important thing here is that is not bad at all, and wonderfandom really reaaaaaaaly needs a long run right now

    Take it twelve at a time. Outside of Batman, runs as long as Williamson on Flash are pretty rare these days.

    I'd rate the run as an 8 out of 10 so far. It builds on the past, embraces various aspects of Diana's world, and the art by Travis Moore has been spectacular.
    Currently/Soon Reading: Aquaman: The Becoming, AquamEn, Black Manta, DC vs. Vampires, Justice League/Justice League Dark, Nubia & the Amazons, The New Champion of Shazam!, Trial of the Amazons, & Wonder Woman.

    It's the best the book has been since Rucka left. Which, aside from some of Orlando's stuff, is an exceedingly low bar to clear, but still it's been very fun.

    It may be a top 5 run overall if it continues like this and ramps up.

    780 is the best issue of Wonder Woman to come out in years. It felt like Wonder Woman.

    Based on sales, the run seems to be underwhelming. Myself, I bought the first arc based on all the enthusiastic support that it seemed to get on this message board and I was extremely disappointed. Through much of the arc, she was powerless, lost her memory, and in my opinion had a very out of character tryst with Siggy.

    7/10 so far, but basically everything after Rucka not written by Orlando was 5/10 or less for me, so that is a very solid improvement already.

    Well after that she was going dimension-hopping, and it was more of a truly Wonder Woman-fitting story than almost anything else in her series since several years.

    Dimension hopping is a Wonder Woman thing? I know I am not as current a reader as most, but I totally disagree with this statement.

    Themyscira itself exists in another dimension.
