Wonder Woman: Earth One

(please log in to view the image)

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS:
"From the masterful minds of Grant Morrison (FINAL CRISIS, THE MULTIVERSITY) and Yanick Paquette (SWAMP THING, BATMAN, INC.) comes the most provocative origin of Wonder Woman you've ever seen -- a wholly unique retelling that still honors her origins.

For millennia, the Amazons of Paradise Island have created a thriving society away from the blight of man. One resident, however, is not satisfied with this secluded life -- Diana, Princess of the Amazons, knows there is more in this world and wants to explore, only to be frustrated by her protective mother, Hippolyta. Diana finds her escape when Air Force pilot Steve Trevor, the first man she has ever seen, crashes onto their shores. With his life hanging in the balance, Diana ventures into the long forbidden world of men. The Amazons chase after her and bring her back to Paradise Island in chains to face trial for breaking their oldest law... staying separated from the world that wronged them.

Thought provoking yet reverent, thoroughly modern but still timeless, the power and courage of Paradise Island's greatest champion -- Wonder Woman -- is introduced in this new addition to DC's New York Times best selling Earth One original graphic novel series."

Thoughts going in? Personally, I think Morrison is going to do a fantastic job with this story.

Can't wait to read it. thumb up

Considering how long this has been in the pipeline I'm guessing it will be great.

I mean when given enough time to completely finish something like this Morrison is rarely going to disappoint.

Kind of what I was thinking.

The fact that Morrison only writes comics when he gets around to doing so, is one of the reason why most of his projects are gold. He couldn't give a f*ck about corporate deadlines or whathaveyou--he writes comics when he damn well pleases.

And because he takes his time, and isn't concerned with cranking out as many comics as possible in the shortest amount of time, most of his works come out absolutely superb--just look at Multiversity, ffs.

I expect nothing less with this.

I dislike lots of the stuff Morrison has done, but I still thinks dis approach of turtle-writting decent comics is better than the option of half-baked stories and mediocre art.

This particular comic, I hope it'll be good.

Yeah, Morrison has said that this comic will not feature a single fight and is filled with sex scenes as per original idea from Marston.

The rage of feminists will be fun to see.

I think more than just feminists would be upset if that were true...

A superhero comic without a single fight doesn't sound like a good comic.

Unless it's by Alan Moore or Neil Gaiman...

I much prefer Morrison over either of them, tbh... Frankly, I loathe Moore. Some of his works are good, but I think they tend to be vastly overrated. /shrug

Wonder Woman desperately needs some Morrison-love.

One of the few characters who have good runs but very few of exceptional quality.

it's true. if there is a character who has more potential but is more frequently f'd up in comics than ww, i'd like to know who it is (throw i'd throw cap marvel (billy) into that category as well....). she's been around for what--70 years, give or take a couple? and what is her definitive arc? anyone? definitive writer? i liked luke's stuff, and jimenez's and a lot of perez's early stuff was pretty good) hell, who even can name more than 3 of her rogues?

The writers are too preocupied with agendas to actually write good stories with her. She has no definite arc, she has no definite writer except William Marston and they don't want to go there (many will try to say Perez, or Rucka, but..), she has somewhat of a rogue gallery [Ares, Cheetah, Circe], but besides Ares all are boring as fock...

So yeah.
She can be Thor. Unfortunately, she's a disguised feminism avatar.

i'm afraid you may be right about that, which is unfortunate. she's the definitive female comic character--i don't think anyone else would even be considered close. but to have such a lack-luster history? it's a marvel of incompetence.

I'm not much of a Wonder Woman fan--never have been. That being said, Morrison knocked this one out of the park, imo. I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it.

Definitely recommend. thumb up

I might grab this at some point, especially as it seems to be a very different kind of Wonder Woman to the one we've seen of the last few decades.

Doesn't it go back to a lot of the kinda pacifist stuff that her creator had in mind in the 50s or whatnot? Rather than the warrior princess mainstream Diana has been a while.

Not that warrior princess Diana is bad, but nice to see one of these Earth One graphic novels actually being a different take on a character, rather than E1 Batman/Superman which just seemed like they were being more 'modern' takes and basically being the same.
