Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Wonder Woman #2 wasn't quite as good as #1 but I still enjoyed it. A lot of talkiness that will probably read better in the trade. The Amazons-attacking-themselves didn't quite work artistically. But I really like how the comic depicts Diana, both visually and in the writing. Strong without being brutal or cruel, which is a trap comic writers fall into far too often. And despite their attire, you rarely feel that the Amazons are being objectified. (There's just one gratuitous butt shot in the whole thing, which is practically Victorian by the standards of superhero comics.)
