Review: Wonder Woman #44

Wonder Woman #44 coverWonder Woman is on the trail of Donna Troy, who seeks refuge in London from both Diana and her past. But a new friend may be more trouble than help for the fleeing Amazon outcast!

I’ll get it out-of-the-way and say that Wonder Woman has never been a character I’ve followed or really been interested in. So, my knowledge of her history and past depictions is rather limited. It’s good in that I can review this comic for only what it is, and not be tainted by what’s come before.

The comic? It’s ok. It’s not good. It’s not bad. It just is. Wonder Woman is running around trying to figure out who’s trying to kill her and find Donna Troy. Donna Troy is on the run figuring out who she is. That’s it. Nothing major really happens it feels like.

This comic, and the last couple of issues, written by Meredith Finch, feel like a very drawn out arc. The last three issues probably could be condensed into a little over two issues, which may have increased my enjoyment. The comic is not bad, don’t get me wrong, it just didn’t excite me reading it. I’m sure when the arc is all done, it’ll be a fine chapter, but it didn’t feel like it moved enough along and there are scenes that just feel very drawn and stretched out.

The art by David Finch and Joanthan Glapion is nice, but again nothing that blew me away to the point that I’d recommend you having to check out the comic. Finch is a talented artist, and the art is solid work. I think out of all of the issues since its debut, this is the one where I’ve seen the most impractical and bad design of Wonder Woman’s new armor. But, we do get to see Troy in a more traditional outfit, which is cool.

Overall the issue is ok, there’s nothing bad about it at all. It just doesn’t feel vital for the story arc, and there’s nothing that makes it stand out enough that it’s a “read” or especially a “buy.” Wonder Woman feels like a ship with a destination, it’s just taking a not very exciting route.

DC Comics in December 2015

dc comic logoDC Comics has released their solicits for December 2015. Here’s each part of their released announcements in one handy post and they’re broken up based on the family of books. We already know a few series getting the axe this month.

A few series got the axe this month, and a few more have run through their limited run. January should be interesting to see what might replace gaps in the line!

The Batman family of books are embroiled in “Robin War” which kicks off during the month. The fact The Court of Owls is involved has me beyond excited for the event, as I think they’re some of the best additions to the Batman mythology in quite a while. I also completely forgot about the TMNT and Batman crossover too!

Fan Expo 2015 – Cover Search

coversearch005It is important to remember that beneath all the memorabilia and all the vendors at a convention, that beneath it all, the mediums exists there.  While fans of television and film flock to screenings of new movies or television episodes, comic fans are left either in artist alley or searching the back issue bins for a missing issue in a collection.  Surprisingly though, there is even a bit of a move away from this specific source at comic conventions, as it becomes less and less profitable for comic book stores to set up shop in a booth when their margins are not so high.  Not surprisingly therefore it can be a bit of a challenge to find comics at all.

At the previous comic book convention that I attended I got so exasperated in trying to find specific issues that I effectively gave up and tried to find a specific issue of a decades-old Kamandi comic.  It should be noted though that Fan Expo is quite a bit larger than the Toronto Comic Con, even though they are run by the same people, and so more vendors were on hand at Fan Expo 2015 than at Toronto Comic Con 2015.  With this in hand, I coversearch003decided that I would search out three separate issues that I had been looking for.  The reasons for buying the covers were somewhat shallow, I had already read the issues themselves, and I was just looking for issues whose covers had stood out for me.  I thus decided on three issues, two from DC’s new 52, and one from Zenescope from a few years back.  Batgirl #26 stands out to me as one of the most beautiful covers that I have seen in recent years, and Wonder Woman #36 was of interest to me to see if the value had gone up at all as the beginning point in the series for the creative team of Meredith and David Finch.  Reaching a bit further back was the cover for Myths and Legends #1 from Zenescope, a J. Scott Campbell cover, that the company uses all the time in its own advertisements.

Here were my findings, booth by booth:

coversearch004Booth #1

The first booth had two different setups.  Some of the more sought after recent issues were displayed on a table.  I found Wonder Woman #36 here right away, with several copies available – there were a lot, I didn’t bother to count – and all of them for $4.  Strangely enough, after checking the nearby back issue bins, I found the exact same issue for $3.99, effectively the same price, unless I was buying hundreds of them.  Still technically this ended up being the cheapest that I could find.  For Batgirl there were several nearby in the same sequence, but no #26, and there were no Grimm Fairy Tales at all.

Booth #2

I had no luck here at all.  They had the first issue of the new 52 run for Wonder Woman, but no recent Batgirl, and coversearch007no Grimm Fairy Tales at all.

Booth #3

I had even less luck here.  For both Wonder Woman and Batgirl there were only older back issues, and again no Grimm Fairy Tales of any kind.

Booth #4

This one was better.  It had no Wonder Woman of the modern era, but it had three of Batgirl #26, all at $4, though none at all again for Grimm Fairy Tales.

Booth #5

A decent collection of Wonder Woman, though nothing new 52, and no Batgirl or Grimm Fairy Tales.

coversearch001Booth #6

This booth had a few new 52 Wonder Woman issues, but no #36.  It did have two #26 of Batgirl, going for the standard price of $4.  This place also had the most interesting collection that I saw while browsing, the entire collection of Alien Worlds eight issues for about $40.

Booth #7

Something about saving the best for last?  Well not quite.  This booth had 3 of Wonder Woman #36, including the Lego variant ($4) and the blank variant ($7) as well as the regular for $4.  No Batgirl again, but this booth had by far the best selection of Grimm Fairy Tales, though not one of Myths and Legends #1.  I picked up another that caught my eye, a variant for Grimm Fairy Tales Presents Oz #5, though as this was the last booth, I gave up hope on finding the last issue and cover.

coversearch002… but …

After a walk down artist alley I noticed the Zenescope booth for the first time, and there on a cover of a book about Zenescope art was the cover that I was looking for.  I flipped through it, but wasn’t really interested in it, especially after the previously unseen booth babe laid a hard sell on me, trying to get me to pay $130 for it.  I put it down and walked around the other side of the booth and found some single exclusives, in this case focused on J. Scott Campbell and Dawn McTeigue as they were nearby, and they admitted trying to push some of these as they were hoping people would buy them to get them. I finally found the cover as the alternte to Code Red #1 (Zenescope does re-use this

Fan Expo Interviews: Meredith and David Finch

Fan Expo Toronto will be taking place this year between September 3rd and 6th, and Graphic Policy had the opportunity to talk with a few of their featured guests before the beginning of the convention.  David and Meredith Finch have had a pretty exciting year go by, having worked on some big names in the industry as well as some less heralded endeavors that were pretty awesome as well.  We got a chance to talk with them about their past year and what to expect in Toronto

finch002Graphic Policy:  You two have had a pretty busy year, between taking over the creative control of Wonder Woman, working on parts of the Darkseid War, and some indie successes with Zenescope’s Little Mermaid.  What were your own highlights?

Meredith Finch:  November 2014 saw our first issue of Wonder Woman hit the stands.  I have to say that was a highlight for me.  We worked so hard on the book for so many months beforehand, it was nice to finally see that come to fruition.

David Finch:  I just worry about putting out the best work I can, and I’ve been very lucky this year to start working with Jonathan Glapion, and Brad Anderson.  They’ve taken my work to another level.  I’ve had the chance to control the panel flow and pacing with Wonder Woman, and that’s been very gratifying.

GP:  On the subject of the Little Mermaid, fairy tales have become a pretty big genre in comics in recent years, but why haven’t they made their way into the mainstream superhero comics yet?

MF:  I think that we don’t see more traditional fairy tale characters in mainstream superhero comics because a superhero comic is, in and of itself, a fantasy.  Our ancestors told fairytales to explain things that were seemingly magical or to provide a moral foundation for childhood behavior.  We use mainstream superhero comics in much the same way.   So I guess I would consider superhero comics much more a modern day extension of fairytales rather than something that excludes them.

finch003GP:  The Darkseid War is a pretty big deal for the Justice League, but its scope is also a lot different, focusing on epic moves.  Do you prefer this kind of epic approach, or something more like Wonder Woman which focuses more on one character and her own character development?

MF:  I love that there is a place for both to exist in the industry.  I think that it’s obvious based on what we are doing how much I love developing a character.  Perhaps as I get more experienced I’d be more inclined to take on a more epic project like Darkseid War, but there aren’t many people out there who can bring to the table the storytelling finesse of Geoff Johns.

DF:  I go back and forth on this one.  I really enjoy single character books because I can really explore and get to know them, but the big expansive books are a blast too.  I have a tough time getting bored when I’ve got lots of varied things to draw, and crossovers are great that way.

GP:  You were recently involved in a costume redesign for Wonder Woman, but costume redesigns for characters are often not well received by the fans.  Why do you think that this is?  And what did you do to counteract it?

MF:  Comics used to be a very new and innovative artistic medium.  I feel like today it is much harder to overcome the sense of nostalgia that is attached to characters and the costumes they have been wearing for decades.

DF:  The costume was very well received from what I saw.  I don’t worry about counteracting negativity.  I especially enjoy working with writers that are fearless in the face of that stuff.  Trying to make everyone happy is a great way to put out boring books.  

finch004GP:  Wonder Woman and the Little Mermaid are interesting in that they have so much pre-established history in terms of what is known about them.  How do you approach beloved characters like this to put your own spin on them?  Do you research them a lot?

MF:  I do as much research as I feel is necessary to understand who and what the characters mean to me.  I definitely was heavily influenced by Disney’s Little Mermaid character.  I love that movie.  But I also wanted to be true to Zenescope’s vision of who and what the character was.  It helped that their Little Mermaid has a monster lurking inside of her.  With Wonder Woman I mainly focused on Brian and Cliff’s run.  They really defined who and what the character was for the new 52 and I let that be my major influence.

GP:  On the same topic, how do you approach characters that are based in a different era, as both the Little Mermaid and Wonder Woman have elements in their background which could seem to be almost anachronistic in the modern day?

MF:  I really try to keep my focus for my story primarily on the women themselves.  Everything else is just a tool to be used as necessary to me.  I do however, think that the fact that both characters have anachronistic elements to their story is part of what I find so appealing.  It helps with the whole fish out of water feeling that we all can relate to.

DF:  Great concepts are timeless, and I think both characters have that going for them.  Then the trick is focusing on the elements of the concept that relate to our times.  

finch005GP:  Do you think that there is a shift underway in the presentation of female comic characters?

MF:  I think you would have to have your head under a rock these days to not be aware of the major shifts that are happening today in comics as they relate to female characters and the creators behind them.  Woman represent almost 50% of the industry now and they are definitely demanding equal representation in the medium.

DF:  Absolutely.  Women are embracing comics in greater numbers lately, both as readers, and as creators.   That’s having a big impact on female character portrayal across the board.

GP:  Do you ever find yourself liking a particular character more after being exposed to them?

MF:  As a writer… absolutely.  The more I have time to delve into a character and what makes them tick, the better I get to know them, the more attached I become.  Right now, Wonder Woman and her cast feel almost as much like family as my real kids.  I love having the opportunity to shape who and what they will become.

DF:  The better written the character, the more engaged I am with them.  That just makes sense, I guess.  I do find it can take me a while to understand what I character is about, but once I do, I’m rolling.

GP:  What are you looking forward to at FanExpo 2015?

MF:  Canadian fans are the best.  I can say that because I’m Canadian.  There is such a great energy to the Toronto show.  The only shows that come close to that type of energy are San Diego and NYCC.  See you soon Toronto!

DF:  I’m looking forward to the fans.  That sounds like a pr kind of answer, I know, but Toronto has a great core of comic fans, and I see lots of familiar faces every year.

Review: Justice League of America #3

jla003There is a decent amount of exposure for the Justice League at DC Comics at the moment.  Not even counting the Justice League United outlier which contains none of the core group of heroes, there are presently three series containing the stories of the Justice League in Justice League, Justice League of America and Justice League 3001.  With three different series, the level of quality seems to vacillate between the great, the average and the not-so-good.  While Darkseid War is elevating the principal series to a pretty high level, and while Justice League 3001 is dragging it down somewhat, Justice League of America continues unabated to tell its standard Justice League story, only with a few twists.

It could actually be said that the story for Justice League of America is still somewhat in its infancy.  After all there is not a lot of cohesion between the separate plot points except in that they all involve Superman to some degree.  Green Lantern and the Flash are stranded on a faraway planet which seems to be Krypton.  The god Rao has come to Earth to provide salvation for its inhabitants, and the team of scientists dealing with temporal energies is trying to find clues as to how Superman continues to show up through their portals on the wrong side of a battle.  Aside from the first issue which included the majority of the heroes together, they are now mostly fragmented into their smaller groups which are dealing with their own smaller problems, not usually one of the hallmarks of a team based series.

While the presentation of the story is sometimes lacking in direction, it is not necessarily to the detriment of the story.  Instead the story here feels like one of the late days of the Silver Age of the Justice League of America.  It hols together pretty well, but it equally seems to be somewhat of the serialized concept of telling the story and then forgetting about it.  For those who are fans of superheroes, this might hit the mark, but compared to some other stories involving modern heroes, it also might seem a bit commonplace, not really trying to be much more than what it is.  For better or worse that is the defining characteristic of this series so far, at least until the creative team decides that it is time to prove otherwise.

Review: Justice League 3001 #3

jl3001-003There is some controversy brewing with this title.  It acts as little more than a rehash of Keith Giffen’s heyday on the Justice League in the 1980s and 1990s, but it is said as well that the treatment of the re-imagined male heroes now in female bodies (the Flash and Guy Gardner, though particularly Guy) is offensive to the transgendered community.  While this may be the case, such an approach to this title is perhaps a little off the mark in terms of its overall theme, that is to say, that the presentation of characters is not only offensive to transgendered women, but probably to most people overall.

Conversely thus far the story has followed a pretty decent concept as the heroes of the JL 3001 world have had to deal with a strange Starro infested world.  They come to grips with that here as the heroes have to deal with the fallout of their intervention to the Starro planet and it is not what it seems (and in fact probably could have been a pretty engaging story under different circumstances.)  Instead the story once again focuses too much on the multitude of problems associated with this series.  For some reason, Giffen just cannot stay away from Booster and Beetle, and they make a return appearance here alongside Fire and Ice.  To some degree one can see this as the evolution of the old Justice League series, just 25 years down the line after a fairly progressive evolution of comics left it behind.  The problem with this series, especially in respect to the transgendered question is that it is offensive, but not only to transgendered.  The presentation of the female Flash character is sterotypical of what men think of teenage girls, without a thought in their heads beyond having a slumber party.  The males of the series, and particularly Superman, are so devoid of real emotion either that they are also caricatures of themselves, especially as Superman is made into a womanizer.

The underlying concept behind this series is inherently fun, as it gives the creative team a wider scope in which to tell their stories, but it proves that Giffen, while successful in some ways, is also a bit of a one-hit wonder with his collection of Super Buddies.  The story here is even serviceable or better, but it ends up being derailed with too much comic relief, which in turn is based too much on gender stereotypes.  There will undoubtedly be fans of the older Giffen works that look to this one with some fondness, but as modern stories in the medium go, this one is off the mark.
