Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #47 Review: “Besties, Part 3” by Barbara Randall Kesel and Laura Braga

The first two issues of the “Besties” storyline struck an odd tone, with an arrogant Wonder Woman defeating teenagers in a footrace and then telling them they need to work harder if they want to be a champion like her in the first issue followed by Wonder Woman slut shaming her evil Earth 3 counterpartContinue reading “Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #47 Review: “Besties, Part 3” by Barbara Randall Kesel and Laura Braga”

Sales for Meredith and David Finch’s Wonder Woman Fall Significantly in July, Down Nearly 20%

The sales numbers for July are out, and DC Comics continues to struggle against Marvel and their very successful Secret Wars event.

Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #45 and #46 Review: “Besties, Part 1 and 2” by Barbara Randall Kesel, Irene Koh, and Emma Vieceli

More than anything else, the quality of a Wonder Woman story depends on how well the creative team captures Wonder Woman. Cool fights, interesting settings or scenarios, and menacing villains are all important ingredients, but getting Wonder Woman right is the key. The current arc of Sensation Comics, “Besties”, has turned Wonder Woman into anContinue reading “Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #45 and #46 Review: “Besties, Part 1 and 2” by Barbara Randall Kesel, Irene Koh, and Emma Vieceli”

Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #42 Review: “Nine Days, Parts 2 and 3″ by Karen Traviss, Andres Guinaldo, and Raúl Fernández

The three part “Nine Days” wrapped in today’s Sensation Comics, bringing to a close a story that never seemed to find its footing. There was a lot going on, with Strife and Eris, two sides of the same goddess, interfering in diplomatic relations between two hostile, neighbouring countries, with Wonder Woman in the middle tryingContinue reading “Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #42 Review: “Nine Days, Parts 2 and 3″ by Karen Traviss, Andres Guinaldo, and Raúl Fernández”

Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #42 Review: “Nine Days, Part 1” by Karen Travis, Andres Guinaldo, and Raúl Fernández

First off, things got busy last week and I didn’t have a chance to write a review of Sensation Comics #41, the finale to “Our Little Dance” by Adam Beechen and José Luis Garcia-López. It was fine. If you read the first issue, the second issue concluded about how you would expect. Wonder Woman hadContinue reading “Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #42 Review: “Nine Days, Part 1” by Karen Travis, Andres Guinaldo, and Raúl Fernández”

Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #40 Review: “Our Little Dance, Part 1” by Adam Beechen, José Luis Garcia-López, and Kevin Nowlan

This week’s issue of Sensation Comics is a throwback to the late Bronze Age, a period for Wonder Woman that’s not as well known to many as the rest of her incarnations. The book has José Luis Garcia-López on art, an artist famed for iconic take on DC superheroes from this period. If you haveContinue reading “Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #40 Review: “Our Little Dance, Part 1” by Adam Beechen, José Luis Garcia-López, and Kevin Nowlan”
