Wonder Woman 3 (January 2012)

Does Wonder Woman really need a secret origin? If she does, she needs someone better than Azzarello writing it. His dialogue this issue, as Diana’s secret is revealed to her, is awful. I couldn’t read it fast enough and there was always more.

This issue also marks me giving up on Chiang. I love his art, but he’s clearly not right for this book. Wonder Woman’s big moment at the end is a complete flop and the way he draws both Amazons and gods is weak. I guess it’s something it’s weak for different reasons. The gods look like meth heads and the Amazons lack muscle definition; instead, Chiang just draws them big.

This issue sets up the rest of the series, making the fourth issue a jumping on point. It also makes this one a wonderful leaping off as fast as possible, damn the lifeboats point.

It’s really lame.

    Cliff Chang may be one of the nicest guys on the planet, but he can’t draw sexy women. You REALLY need an artist that can draw hot women for Wonder Woman. His women have the grace of logs. Nuff said.
