Review: Wonder Woman #39

ww039There is likely no comic book writer in the entire medium under greater scrutiny at the moment than Meredith Finch.  The Wonder Woman of the early new 52 was one which was all of a sudden a “cool” entity, and readers of the medium finally gave the character a chance when she had been generally ignored before.  After this run, Meredith was given the reins of the series to lead to a new place, back to the mainstream DC universe while also not forgetting about the character recent past and also her long publication history.  In essence she was given the reins of a series which had to balance the three together however possible and to presumably maintain interest in the character.

It should be said that Meredith is not a bad writer, in fact she is a pretty good writer, as numerous stories in other titles will attest to.  The problem with this title since she has taken over seems to be her own personal formula for how to turn this character into her own.  As with the three previous issues, this formula is an unbalanced mixture between superhero, God of War and Queen of the Amazons.  This issue is broken down into three unequal parts dealing with this fracture.  First with her Justice League allies she researches more about the seismic events that are causing problems in the world.  After almost killing some kind of possessed human, she is criticized by Batman for her recklessness by almost causing death, and she argues on behalf of her role as the god of war that sometimes killing one to save a thousand is better.  Finally she returns once again to Themyscira to try to settle the problems there, notably that the tribe of male Amazons is in danger.  The first bit as superhero seems like it could have come out of any Justice League of America comic from the 1980s, the second part as god of war is brief and undeveloped, and the third part is where the true interest in this story rests, promising for the second time in the past two issues, the proper reintroduction of Donna Troy.

It is in the combination of this all that the story gets lost.  It would seem that Meredith in trying to put her stamp on the character has gone for an all-out approach, throwing in every trick which she has, but it is not to the benefit of this series.  Instead a better approach might be to consider each one of these roles separately, as such a juxtaposition is a bit much in under 25 pages.  The potential for the character is here, and specifically rests it would seem in the Themyscira chapter, but as it stands the lack of focus is taking away from what could be accomplished here.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

BitchPlanet03_CoverWednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Brett

Top Pick of the Week: Bitch Planet #3 (Image Comics) – Have you read the first two issues? That explains why this is on the top of my pick pile this week. They’re that good! The series mixes political commentary with a prison exploitation film. It’s awesome.

The Kitchen #4 (Vertigo) – If you’re a fan of Goodfellas, The Godfather, or The Sopranos, you’ll dig this series.

Lady Mechanika #4 (Benitez Productions)Finally!  A brand new Lady Mechanika issue: the fourth chapter of The Mystery of the Mechanical Corpse. It’s been a long time coming, but I can’t wait. This series used to be the hot property, but massive release delays have chilled it a bit. I expect new material to get folks excited again.

Letter 44 #14 (Oni Press) – The last issue dropped a bomb, and saw something happen that I expected to happen much further down the road. The series which mixes politics with science fiction is about to kick it up a notch.

Secret Identities #1 (Image Comics) – The supergroup known as The Front Line have just invited new hero Crosswind to join them. But what they don’t know is that Crosswind is a mole, sent to learn all their secrets. And the Front Line have LOTS of secrets.

Edward

Top Pick of the Week: Silk #1 (Marvel) – Spider-Woman got off to a bumpy start with her roll-out during Spider-verse, and it remains to be seen if they have learned their lesson.  No matter what the past year has since the rise of the Spider-women, and this series has the potential to grab a lot of that interest.

Burning Fields #2 (BOOM! Studios) – The first issue set up an unconventional setting for a horror, and left the readers with a bit of a cliffhanger.  It will be interesting to see where it goes from there.

Manifest Destiny #13 (Image Comics) – It is impossible to know what to expect from this series, and as the group pushes farther into the unexplored country, they can only find more otherworldly challenges.

Suicide Risk #22 (BOOM! Studios) – This series has taken the genre of superheroes and given it new life, with an intriguing shared universe full of deceit.  It will be interesting to see how the heroes escape the double cross from the previous issue.

Wonder Woman #39 (DC Comics) – After a decent enough start the new run has run into a few problems, but maybe the surprise return of Donna Toy can help that?

Elana

Top Pick of the Week: Lady Killer #1 2nd Printing (Dark Horse) –  The comic sounds like a creative new title with cool looking art and a period accurate logo. “Avon Lady is really a hired killer” is a great concept. How come women never get to be the dark killer anti-hero, amiright?!

Bitch Planet #3 (Image Comics) –  This is the comic for radicals. And women. And those who love them.

Ms. Marvel #12 (Marvel) – The Valentines Day issue is clearly the most adorable thing in the world. Loki comes to shake up Kamala’s love life?! Based on Bruno’s comment in the preview I will now be referring to new Loki as “hipster Viking”, and applying that term loosely to others. Also they talk about gentrification.

She-Hulk #12 (Marvel) – I’ve been dying to know for a year: WHAT IS IN THE BLUE FILE. And I’m about to find out. I am still upset this book has been cancelled. It’s just what Marvel needs. Grumble.

Storm #8 (Marvel) – Storm is a great comic with a classic feel of the character. Storms actions till now have mostly made sense to me but in the last issue she did something wreckless that through me for a loop. I am super eager to learn why!

Johnny

Top Pick of the Week: Ei8ht # 1 (Dark Horse) – I love time travel stories and this series has a lot of cool concepts behind it, particularly the idea of the Meld. The Meld is a dimension in time, and I am interested to see if it is treated as an inbetween place that touches other points in time.

King: Mandrake the Magician #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – There are no other magic-based comics characters as influential or maybe even as important as Mandrake. There was a period in pop culture history when Mandrake was one of the most well-known and recognizable characters out there, and many modern stage magicians patterned their look and persona on him. Unfortunately most contemporary attempts to re-boot the character have met with lackluster results. However, Dynamite has done a phenomenal job with Flash Gordon, The Phantom and now Mandrake. This series is part of the “King Features” imprint and starts after the events in Kings Watch, but don’t worry, you won’t have to have read that series to enjoy this fresh start. This title is my top pick this week.

Legenderry Green Hornet #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Steampunk is hot and Dynamite jumped onto the Steampunk bandwagon last year with Legenderry. The concept was to take classic pulp (and some not so pulp) characters and re-imagine them as a team in a Victorian setting. Now, Dynamite is giving these character’s their own solo turns and this week is The Green Hornet’s turn!

She-Hulk #12 (Marvel) – I love She-Hulk. She is my favorite Marvel character without hesitation. However, I have to admit that I did not collect this particular run, waiting instead for the collection/TPB. For me, Brian Pulido’s art just never connected with me on this series. However, it also seems that the best She-Hulk stories are always the final issues, so this one should be a really good read.

Silk #1 (Marvel) – Although I keep asking why we need another Spider Woman, this character has me intrigued because of her direct connection to Peter Parker and their shared origin. Not only do we get a new character, but we get a strong female character with a (hopefully) a rich back story waiting to be mined.

Nevada

Top Pick of the Week: Cinema Retro #31 (Cinema Retro) – I love retro cinema and Pam Grier as Coffee on the cover just seals the deal.

Fight Like a Girl #3 (Action Lab Entertainment) – I’m intrigued by this and look forward to seeing how Amarosa responds to her new environment and the people she encounters who think they know better than she knows herself. Who are they?

Lone Ranger Vindicated #4 (Dynamite Entertainment) – I’m a fan of Westerns and especially the Lone Ranger so I’ll have to see what happens at the final showdown in Red River.

Nancy Drew Diaries Vol. 4: The Charmed Bracelet and Global Warning (Papercutz) – Nancy’s still quite the go-getter; I just have to drop in to see what she’s up to. This looks like a humdinger.

Twilight Zone #12 (Dynamite Entertainment) – I haven’t paid a visit to the Twilight Zone in a while, plus the retro look of this is quite appealing!

Wonder Woman, A God Among Men But A Homebound Daughter

dessa01Wonder Woman is a relatively unique character at DC Comics.  While DC is known for its characters that are more godly than the street level fighters or geniuses at Marvel, Wonder Woman is the character who is in fact the most closely associated with gods, so much so that she has been presented as both the Goddess of Truth and the God of War at various stages in her publication history.  Equally the story lines associated with Wonder Woman have been somewhat consistent over the years, at least in the themes of the stories that are told.  While there is of course a good selection of superhero fun, there is an interesting and often ignored theme to the character, that of being bound in a sense to tradition and her home.  Throughout the silver age and modern age the stories have crept up now and then where Wonder Woman is pressured, usually after the death of her mother, to return to Themyscira (which would have been called Paradise Island in the silver age) to rule the Amazons.

dessa02While this is a natural outgrowth of her role in various worlds and having her commitments all over the place, it is equally a departure from the same models of other characters.  As a member of the so-called trinity of heroes at DC Comics, she exhibits different qualities from her other two counterparts, Superman and Batman. Admittedly her position in the trinity is firmly in third place, and at many times in the history of the publishing related to the character she has been not even the third most popular character among the lineup of DC heroes.  Her role there might be disputable, but she has earned in different respects.  The Flash and Green Lantern, who might have passed her for popularity at one time or another, have still not managed to be regularly published since the Second World War.  It also makes the comparisons for the character easier with the other two.

dessa03In relation to the specific theme of this storyline, there is little in common with either Batman or Superman.  Batman doesn’t spend time with Alfred, hearing the latter complain about how he should stop crimefighting and focus on running Wayne Enterprises.  So too does Superman not have to worry about Ma or Pa Kent calling him to tell him that his time for crimefighting has to come to an end because the farm needs his attention.  Of the three therefore, it is only Wonder Woman that is forced to focus on her past as much as her future.

Is it because of her gender?  An initial appraisal might point to yes.  After the Amazons are female and traditional, and mostly seem to want Wonder Woman to stay at home and not get mixed up in the bigger world, a common enough warning of parents to their daughters.  It would seem on closer inspection though, that it is more of a case of sloppy story telling, that in place of an engaging story, that Wonder Woman can spend one or two issues squabbling with her sisters, and that once resolved that she doesn’t have to worry about those that want to hold her back to her other duties.  If either of these explanations holds truth then it does the character a disservice.  The present run from the Finches includes this almost immediately out of the gate, and it was equally a part of Azzarello’s run before (and pretty much every other writer’s run.)  If the new creative team does want to go some place new, which is incidentally also the goal of the new 52 relaunch, then it would help then to know the publication history of the character, and what has worked and what hasn’t since the beginning.  Either way, it is time that readers got to finally read about DC’s greatest heroine without worrying about when she is getting called home.

Review: Wonder Woman #38

ww38covThe newest run on Wonder Woman has been a fairly divisive one only three issues in.  Not even considering the comments made about the character by the creative tea, the direction which they have taken the character has either been applauded or criticized.  There are those that are comparing it to Azzarello’s run, perhaps unfairly, and other that are trying to enjoy it for the return of the Amazon heroine to the mainstream of the DC Universe.  After the most recent issue it would seem as though there are more chinks in the armor for the creative team than first seemed, and that some of the criticism against them could be justified.

Too much of the problem here seems to be that the creative team is not ready to venture out on their own and to embrace a story that is theirs, or in the case that they do embrace their own story, it is one of the less interesting facets of the character, namely that she has responsibilities also as a queen of the Amazons in addition to that of goddess and superheroine.    In the history of the character there has likely never been a really engaging story about Diana being the queen that has struck a chord with readers.  There is some sloppy storytelling here as well, in the form of a dream sequence which is a bit misleading  to the readers and some dialogue which is both expositional and dismissive at the same time.  Additional while David Finch has his own style of art, it is a bit out of proportion at times in this issue.

There is a maxim in sports that rookies should not be judged before the end of their third season to see their true potential, but if this were to hold true for the Finches after three issues, it might appear that they are on shaky ground already.  As it stands there is still some potential here, and this issue is likely to be popular enough for the surprise arrival at the end, but the overall effect was lost with too much dialogue where it didn’t belong and too little action where it did belong.  The Finches still deserve chance to see where it is that they can take this series, but on its present heading, it would seem as though it is going in the wrong direction.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

March Book Two cover (300dpi)Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday. Lots of comics from IDW Publishing this made our lists!

Brett

Burning Fields #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Mixing politics with horror? Yes please! I’ve looked forward to this series that sees a detective head to Iraq to solve some murders.

The Kitchen #3 (Vertigo) – Under the radar, and awesome. The series is a 70s set crime series featuring the wives of the the mobsters.

March Book 2 (Top Shelf Productions) – My most anticipated graphic novel (and comic) of 2015 is out this week, and it’s so appropriate as it was MLK day yesterday. Expect this one to win awards at the end of the year.

Millennium #1 (IDW Publishing) – The X-Files spin-off gets its own comic series. It was an underrated television series, and I expect an awesome comic adaptation.

Zombies vs Robots #1 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s popular book series comes to comics in an ongoing series. It’s zombies fighting robots people!

Edward

Burning Fields #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A noirish detective story, but set in the aftermath of the Iraq War.  Someone or something is killing people in a gruesome fashion on the oil fields, but a cover-up threatens the investigators from getting to the truth.  The story bills itself as Zero Dark Thirty meets The Thing and seems to be living up to it.

Dark Horse Presents #6 (Dark Horse) – This series flies a little below the radar, but channels the same creative concepts behind a lot of earlier comics (DC’s Showcase from the 1960s.)  Some of the stories are doomed to fail, but some are destined for the Dark Horse universe.  This issue has both sci-fi time travel and some undead fighting heroes.

Zombies vs. Robots #1 (IDW Publishing) – The launch of the first ongoing series which proved that the medium of comics is not tired of zombies yet, this time as the small handful of human survivors has to deal with competing post apocalypse scenarios.  And speaking of zombies…

Wonder Woman #38 (DC Comics) – It it only two issues into their run, but the Finches have been very divisive so far, both in terms of their comments to the direction of the character and in the output of the comics. Will Wonder Woman’s return to mainstream DC find firm ground or crash and burn?

Zombie Tramp #6 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – It is still hard to know what to make of this series, but it is usually entertaining even if you owe your brain an apology in the end.

Evan

Holy F*ck #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – This is a hilarious low-brow title with very well delivered religious satire. I can completely get behind this foul-mouthed stoner who’s-bisexual messiah.

The Valiant #2 (Valiant) – The art in this in issue is beautifully executed. I normally don’t like when I can’t tell which author was writing for each page but the art provided a smooth transition page to page.

George

Amazing Spider-Man #13 (Marvel Comics) – The latest story arc for Spidey is coming to a close and it’s the best one yet by Dan Slott.

Burning Fields #1 (BOOM! Comics) – Military horror mystery by Moreci, Daniel and Lorimer set in the Middle East. The story combines a dishonorably discharged military investigator with a mythic evil set in an already fragile locale. The story sounds amazing and the art looks fantastic.

Powers #1 (Marvel Comics/Icon) – Since the announcement of the TV Show this has been a much anticipated comic. Plus, Brian Michael Bendis is one of the best story-tellers out there. Powers #1 is a perfect jumping-on point for anyone interested n this Eisner Award winning tale.

Reyn #1 (Image Comics) – Kel Symons is building a fantasy world that sounds as amazing as the art by Nathan Stockman. If you’re looking for a new Comic Book to add to your pull list this is definitely one you should add and keep up with.

Rumble #2 (Image Comics) – If you haven’t already picked up, and read, Rumble #1 then do so immediately. This story has such a compelling plot that I couldn’t put it down before I read it and re-read it over and over again. We have yet to learn much of the backstory for the protagonist, but that’s a good thing.

Jesse

Borderlands: Fall of Fyrestone #6 & Borderlands TP Vol. 2 Fall of Fyrestone (IDW Publishing) – Borderlands is among my favorite games out there. I would be honored to review their comic line

Cartoon Network Super Secret Crisis War TP Vol. 1 (IDW Publishing) – These cartoons are my childhood. Seeing them come together is always good entertainment for me.

Dungeons & Dragons: Legend of Drizzt TP Vol. 1 Homeland (IDW Publishing) – After 15 years of Dungeons and Dragons experience of being both a player and Dungeon Master, DnD and (especially) anything with Drizzt would be among my top options.

Iron Man Epic Collection TP Stark Wars (Marvel) – I’m a huge Iron Man fan and would love to get my hands on some Iron Man comics to review and discuss in a large scale review.

Legendary Star-Lord #8Legendary Star-Lord TP Vol. 1 Face It I Rule, Rocket Raccoon #7 (Marvel) – A huge Marvel fan and a huge fan of the Guardians. I’d love anything from Guardians of the Galaxy, but especially them on their own.

Review: Wonder Woman #37

ww038The previous issue of Wonder Woman was a significant change in direction for the series with the introduction of a new creative team, and many felt that it was filled with more than a few bumps along the road.  While there were some obvious reservations with the previous issue, at the same time it indicated the delicate balance which the creative team was trying to achieve between their own stories and those that preceded it, as tough an act to follow as that was.  In this the second issue of this new creative team, there is a little bit less of the immediate reaction away from what came before, but also better clues that the creative team does indeed know what it is doing here.

While still under pressure from various parts of her life, Diana takes time to work through some of her problems, both with Clark and then with her sisters.  While the plot is at times a little forced, the different layers of storytelling are evidently being well-played against one another.  This is a creative team that is juggling a lot of balls, but as is evident with the surprise final page, it would seem that they do have a plan on how to manage the task in front of them, and to do so in a way that will please the fans and do justice to the characters.

The end result is one which is not as obvious as the first issue for the new team.  The previous issue was more of the clean-break as opposed to this one which instead rests a little bit on the shock value of what has come before.   While it may be evident as well here that some of the developments of the previous issue may in fact be more of misfires, it is also evident that while this series might not yet be running on full cylinders, that the promise is there to do so.  Admittedly, Azzarello’s run on this series was a great one, but people seem to ready to write off this team before they have even had a chance to prove themselves, and this issue represents another step forward for them as they try to carve out their own part of this iconic character’s history.
