    To be fair, sales success in monthly issues is only one small factor in the larger machine these days. The bookstore market, digital sales, readership numbers on DC Infinite, and potential for adaptation all play a larger role in what's successful or not these days.

    That’s actually legitimately cool and a good way of maintaining modern status quo shifts. We got Nubia as the new queen which frankly has been awesome so giving Hippolyta her own unique and pretty cool way doing things is pretty awesome compared to what Bendis did which was make her just Wonder Woman for a brief period.

    Going to be pretty awkward in Olympus however if it’s still Canon Zeus is Diana’s dad. Also this isn’t some weird thing where Artemis murdered her just so she could become a god is it?

    how does it work that King's stuff is clearly selling very well and is a draw... but then turn around and complain about people not buying his stuff and so that's proof there's no demand for anything other than Batman?
    There is a reason(s)...

    Batman (and some others) get orders at higher numbers than what they tend to SELL (at cover price)-which is why when you go to a bin sale (25 cent one in my case) or see the NONSTOP sells Midtown Comics do-it's mainly Batman books (mainly the standard covers or second printings).

    Now lets take a few books..

    Static, Batman, Strange Adventures & Wonder Twins

    Lets say by issue...3 or 4-you heard enough good things to try those books. So you head to the comic book store to buy those floppies...

    I PROMISE you Batman will be the only title that you can have your pick of covers and get every issue.
    The rest have sold out, sold out and can't be reordered or NEVER ordered because your store has trouble selling a book with a POC as the lead.
    Or you get the ODD store that won't sell a book for whatever reasons like a few store near my city did the ENTIRE Superman line once Bendis arrived. Including Supergirl.

    As for sales overall...

    We have to consider how many fans have been chased off by the PREVIOUS folks running this place.

    How many folks fed up with how Wally was done found solace in a book called Something is Killing the Children? Saga? Spawn? Wynd?

    How many folks are confused that Superboy & John Stewart had to do Round Robin but One Star Squadron did NOT?

    More importantly.....

    How many better books are out there that are FREE of DRAMA or Not a nesting ground for the war of fandom as Green Lantern has become? No concerns about the race or sexuality of the lead?

    But I think it's the perfect status quo to move forward the Wonderverse. Hippolyta as a goddess makes so much sense after all these years. Diana was never going to be a goddess forever, but Hippolyta could become a new type of goddess permanently after being queen for such a long time, and Nubia could herald a new order for the amazons, and a new purpose.

    Hephaestus still keeps his New 52 design but they changed Hermes. I think in the Graveyard arc he was still New 52?

    This is just a guess but if Altuum was telling the truth, I think they're gonna follow the movie where Diana was clay, but given to life by Zeus.

    I doubt it'll stick anyways, but should be interesting to see how they handle it.

    Hephaestus looks like a mix of New 52 and “classic”. He’s still got some avian aspects like what Chiang gave him.

    I cannot deny that Marie Javins has overseen more investment in the WW franchise than any other editorial regime in DC history.

    In other news, the Mary Marvel miniseries has now been moved to August

    https://www.gamesradar.com/au/shazam...review-covers/

    So in August Mary Marvel will be involved with her own series and two Elseworld’s (DCeased and DC vs Vampires). Good year for Mary Marvel fans I say

    Considering Marvel's were released yesterday, they should be.
