Wonder Woman & Conan 006

This was a glorious ending. The art, the poetic narrative, the Amazonian banter, Conan in single-handed combat to the death, Diana's heartringing Calvary Moment, man stands up to false gods, good guy's victory, Yanna's bittersweet fate, and meeting the mailroom boy. All glorious. Even the fact that Conan cheated and Diana lied were the just the twist the happy ending needed. They both shared some sensational spotlight and spot-on character moments. This should be a well received TPB. Usually, company crossovers can be easily dismissed or logically incompatible - this finale even challenges that trope seems as it could seemlessly be fit into either/both canons with a satisfying significance. And even if it doesn't it ends up a recommended read unto itself.

What say you?

> The final battle is here! Diana has regained her sense of self—and with her mind and memory intact, she’s an unstoppable force. Conan believed her to be his lost childhood love, and the revelation of her true destiny does nothing to lessen his admiration for the warrior he fights beside. The Corvidae may live to regret their wager. Copublished with Dark Horse.

beat Diana in a fight. So, not a good crossover and if anyone asks me, I'm going to say to stay away from it because it's not any good. Honestly, I just cannot recommend this to anyone.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
