Obviously that isn't a knock against the character as a whole. This was clearly just a story that didn't work out for me. It started out with a fresh, interesting take on the character that just sort of disintegrated into something vaguely existential. In theory, the journey of a person trying to figure out who she is would be a fantastic story for a new reader to pick up. They can go on that journey with the character and make those discoveries right along side her. This, unfortunately, fails when it starts getting just plain confusing. I would elaborate on the points I didn't quite understand, but it's all a bit too foggy now. In fact, I should probably give the thing a reread just to get the whole story at once and see if it works any better.
The funny thing about this 14th issue of the Wonder Woman reboot is that it's the final issue for Diana before she gets rebooted (again) along with the rest of the DC Universe. Seeing as this whole "women in comics" bit is such an important topic to me, I always figured I should be reading Wonder Woman. So, I figured last year's relaunch would be a good jumping on point for me. Needless to say, it didn't work out so well. So I find myself asking a very important (at least within the confines of my own little world) question:
Should I try this again?
|Her costume changed again!|
Of course, this all leads to a few more questions...
Should I try any of the other new DC titles? Batwoman? JLA?
Can my bank account survive this?
Stay tuned for answers to these and other earth-shattering questions.
