Wonder Woman #21 (No one likes us, we don't care Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Thu Jun 20, 2013 2:15 pm

There’s been a lot of Internet ink spilled this week over the announcement of the upcoming Superman/Wonder Woman series that will focus on the romantic relationship between the two characters. I don’t want to talk about it too much, but for me, that series is a good thing because it means that Brian Azzarello will not be forced to bring Superman into his series and will hopefully be left alone and allowed to just tell his own story like he has been doing for the last 2 years. This run is the only Wonder Woman story I’ve ever really liked and I would hate to see it meddled with by the wider DC Universe.

This was another great issue of Azz’s run, and not only because Cliff Chiang was back and drawing the whole issue, which means this is once again one of the best-looking comics out there. The main focus on this issue was the much-anticipated fight between Wonder Woman and the First Born, which was very well-done indeed. Diana’s dialogue in this scene was just unbelievably bad-ass. Not only do we get to see the First Born go up against Wonder Woman, he also fights Orion! Yep, everyone’s favourite New God is back and just as much of a dick as always. I think it’s been a stroke of genius from Azzarello to have the New Gods involved in a series about the Old Gods, and it’s a lot of fun to see them clash. The idea that the First Born is powerful enough to hold back a Boomtube is just mind-blowing, he is one tough SOB (and with Hera, that’s accurate).

It was also great to see Lennox sacrifice himself to save everyone else, I’ve found him to be an interesting character and it was good to get final confirmation that he was a hero before died. And he must be the first comics character to go out singing a Millwall football chant, surely? This series is just uniformly excellent, each issue adds something new to this epic story and new world for Wonder Woman and it’s exciting to see. I think the most interesting thing here was the mysterious powers of Baby Zeke, who perhaps is an evil baby? I dunno, but come on, High Father is in this, you gotta love it.
