Blackest Night: Wonder Woman #1


    Emerick, you the man...got stuff in the banner already...what a great Mod!!! \:\)

Thanks. Your WWMB contributions have been super too.

    I liked it.

Have not been thrilled, in general, by how this Event has progressed. This issue seemed to have 2 differences from the same old same old of BN. So, that bumped it to a bit better than average.

    I was wondering what color she would be. I can deal with love, but I was kinda hoping for either blue or indigo( really hard to come by).

The repeated color analysis by the BN Rings has gotten a bit boring by now as some of the readings seem awfully selective and debatably off at times. Still, its.. interesting.. to see she was ALL LOVE thru the whole fight.

    The Zamarons or whatever they are called, could learn some nice moves from Diana.

    Strangely, I liked Rucka's writing on this book better than what he did in the regular title. Go figure. And there also seemed to be seamless transition between his take on our princess and gail's. I had to double check who the writer on this book was.

The transition between BN crossovers was a little odd. Why previously the Black Rings were taking over meta-corpses or key 'family' members but here there are gads of them taking up soldiers all willy nilly. This is 1 of the 2 differences. Also it is still frustratingly unclear process in many respects where the characters should be offering readers MORE detailed observations now. Throwing in The Unknown Soldier into the mix was.. interesting.

    Also liked how her lasso was used: beautiful.

Thought it was also.. interesting. This was the other of the 2 differences. Did not know they'd have her Magic Lasso do something like that. Wonder if it will be a one time deal or they will bother to explain it a bit more.

    Didn't like: I usually love Nicola Scott's work, but her take on Diana leaves me cold.

Huh, thought it was a bit better than average 'cuz of the attention to panels w/WW for the nice art renderings of her.

    I don't know why. The beginning started on a weird point for me. Although Diana has lost people, the ones they showed (Arty, Hippy, and Clark have all come back. C'mon we know Bruce is coming back, just a matter of when. So her argument for loss seems a little weak. Why not put in Trevor Barnes, some people that have actually REMAINED dead? I also thought it was a little sick to sue the dead soldiers: they were put through enough, now their bodies have to be destroyed?!?! Arrgh!!!

100% agree! This reasoning is exactly why Max was such an interesting villain choice.

    All in all I liked it. It is the only Blackest Night stuff I am collecting. While I have heard that the general BK storyline is rather good, it is taking too darn long and in too many books.

Would have said their were 3 differences that made this issue okay not having any foreknowledge of Wonder Woman's previous connections with Nekron but this issue barely touched on that history which seemed like a missed oppurtunity. Hopefully there will be better revelations about her past connection/non-love feelings for this main(?) villain in #2.
