Wonder Woman #36
> a whole new direction from artist David Finch (Forever Evil, Batman: The Dark Knight) and writer Meredith Finch, who just so happens to also be Mrs. David Finch. Not much is known about their new direction, but it is said to focus more on superheroics in the traditional sense, as well as put the spotlight more on Diana’s relationship with her fellow members of the Justice League

• Well? The new revamped title is out. And?
• Let Wonder Woman's MB, here, if you liked it?
• Are you undecided - then do you like the online links provided below?
• Was that overall artwork gorgeous or what?!
• Any thoughts on the dam/mystery man?
• How do you rate the Aquaman talk? The Swamp Thing fight?
• Did you find that last page surprise smashing enough?

Finch draws a very pretty girl, and if it was Wonder Girl, it would be more appropriate. When I see Wonder Woman drawn like this, it feels that they have an issue with her being an adult, or that a woman must look like a member of Sailor Moon perpetually.

The complication on Paradise Island is interesting, but can we really expect men and women to peacefully coexist on Themyscira? The attitudes of the Amazon women is surprisingly sexist towards the males, but it does hit the right chord in a reckoning for past transgressions, a reckoning that the Amazons would much rather avoid.

Five years comic time and three years of our time, and Wonder Woman seems like a mess. Perhaps even more so than Superman. Daughter of Zeus, God of War, involved with Superman . . .it's as if they removed Wonder Woman, and spliced Wonder Girl, Ares, and Lois Lane together.

I doubt I'll be back for more after this. Azzarello's run, while good for some, left me cold and unsympathetic. I don't need to see Diana grab a man's gonads or point a sword to solve problems. The dichotomy of a warrior for peace seems to be too much to handle, and so we have this: the aimless God(dess) of War, setting an excelent example of what not to do.
