I liked it.  Rucka is gonna knock it home with Wonder Woman.  I liked the back and forth between old and new and the conflict it's playing out with Diana.  This is going be a fun journey to follow over the next few months if not longer.

Agree. This is THE Rebirth book so far. From the very first page you get that "Now this is they way this book is suppose to sound" and it doesn't stop until the last page is turned. Damned glad Rucka is back to this title. Man, what a get.

Not much more to say here other than I liked the first part of of the books art better than the last half. But would have still enjoyed having just one artist instead of two ... regardless which one it was ... doing the entire thing.

Issue 1

Off to a good start!  One could say this issue is slow as its setting up the arc.  But the ending cliff hanger was fun.  Going to be weird having this story arc only in the odd numbered issues while a Year One story arc runs through the even numbered issues.  It's an interesting experiment which I'm interested in seeing how it goes.  I kind of like having it all contained in one title instead of multiple Wonder Woman books.  Keeping an open mind.

Yeah, in that way, writing like that, it is like getting two Wonder Woman books a month ... written by Rucka, so ... yeah!!!
 Cheesy

I also enjoyed this set-up issue (another great example of why all the solo Rebirth #1's should have been a zero issue. I mean if you're gonna use the second issue, or first really, as the setup ...  Grin).

I was really impressed with the art here. Sort of a mix between Darick Robertson and Richard Corben. I could really see the styles of each on one page. I was worried about this artist, as the name didn't ring a bell for me, but I think this particualr story is in fine hands. I already knew Nicola Scott would be okay, but couldn't quite place this artist.

Of course, with Nicola doing Wonder Woman, and I just thought about this, I wonder what that will do to Rucka and Scott's Image book, the Black Magick series? I have to see if that was just a mini or is that on hold now. Sadly, I don't remember it being a mini, which means ... well, poo. If they are both on Wonder Woman now, the Outlook doesn't look great!!!

I Love Love LOVED this first issue!!

Diana as a creature of myth, whose truths can change based on who's telling the story is a great angle, and I can't wait to read this!! Thank you Greg Rucka! So glad DC sucked you off back, to write for DC again!!!

Issue 2

Damn you Greg Rucka.  Damn you for making me love the retelling of an origin story.  Damn you...and bless you!

As much of an ass that he is about his covers (having Cho fired and all for what seems like ... well ... nothing THAT bad and what did you expect when you hire Frank Cho??) he can certainly write this title.

The only bad thing I can say is that I think I am more excited about WW year one than I am about the regular story.

What happened with Frank Cho?  I hadn't heard that between him and Rucka.

Rucka got him fired from doing the alternate WW covers, because ... well, no-one really knows for sure, but (Again, conjecture ... other than Cho's side of the argument where he says all this) ... Rucka got Cho fired because Rucka didn't like the way he was sexualizing WW.

HERE is more on it, and I just have to ask ... isn't that where her bikini suit line has always been? I mean, if they/Rucka is mad about showing panties ... I just don't know what to say.  Rucka and CHo don't get along from Cho's enjoyment of showing women in a way Rucka doesn't like, so I was shocked to find the two were even on the same book anyway.

Eh, I couldn't care less about variant covers usually anyway, so I have no dog in this fight ... other than to say I think Rucka was a dick here.

Also, this is all Cho's talk here as well. Nothing from Rucka (unless that's a link to something I haven't seen yet).

Also, fuck Frank Cho. He's a mostly shitty guy, from continuing to throw that Magera Spider-woman pose at everyone he can, claim himself to be an "artiste", then get haughty when his lame ass pin ups of t'n'a get editorial direction.

HE says it's all Rucka. Rucka has proven himself as a fantastic talent.

Cho has proven that he can't do backgrounds, is only good a pin up shots, and he only has one woman form in his stable.

Fuck Frank Cho.

Wonder Woman #3

Focusing on Cheetah with this issue, a character I never really liked (is she really a threat?), I found a little conection with the character here. Not a personal one, but a connection that made me understand the character a little more. I still feel she is weak as a threat, even though she seems to be able to handle Wonder Woman, but I grew to like her a little more. Heck, this issue was pretty emotional and that really opened up the character I think. The art, while I am not a huge fan overall (though it isn't "bad"), was perfect for facial expressions. I mean I felt Cheetahs pain when I looked at her. A fantastic job, there.

With issue #4 hitting next week, 8/10/2016, and it being concentrated on Diana's past, it is gonna feel like forever when we get back to this story. A very odd side effect of a bi-monthly title telling a monthly story. I may try and put this title on a hold for a few, to get a few more issues in the bank before I return. After reading books like Action, Superman, Batman, Detective, etc .. and getting very used to those stories being continued after only two weeks, this month long wait, a normal occurrence for almost every title in the Comic'verse, seems like forever!!!!!

Although it is gonna be hard to sit on a good book, a very good book in-fact, I may not be able to do it.

Issue #4

A great issue that finally puts Diana upfront. Almost seemed a tad rushed but we all know the battle competition story far too well anyway.
