They liked Gail Simone's run.

Linkara himself has even said so.

I've pretty much dropped Wonder Woman, it just wasn't going anywhere fast enough for me. It start off okay but too much time spent with Themyscira B/S and wasn't quickly enough getting to Wonder Woman kicking ass, saving the world and taking names. She also seemed a bit... "off" in her character. I forgot Supergirl came out this week and it wasn't in my automatic pulls with Comixology, maybe they didn't get in in time and it's there now or be with my stuff next week.

^ You dropped at the wrong time with Wonder Woman. The Hades arc has just heated things up.

I'll probably give this issue a go then and pick it up next week or the week after. It's not one of my automatic pulls as it's one I'm on the line with and I was a bit tight on money this week.

Week #4 is a big week for me (Aquaman, TDK, Flash, Superman) so maybe I'll get Wonder Woman #8 the first week of May.

I dropped WW.... the story was completely uninteresting to me and the art was pretty bad. I've never enjoyed WW stories very much though... the Simone run was okay, I didn't like the Rucka issues that I read. I have trouble equating magic and gods into superhero comics.

Yeah, the art in WW wasn't working for me either.

Traditional WW fans seem to hate it and that seems to hurt sales.

Screw 'em. It's a good book. I was never interested in a WW comic before this. THIS is an interesting and original take, not a retread or a rehash.

Azzarello interview on the changes to Wonder Woman.

http://www.newsarama.com/comics/bria...der-woman.html
In the interview they say:

Nrama: Maybe a few, but this title is selling better than Wonder Woman has in a long time, isn't it?

Azzarello: Yeah, it is. But for me, the cool thing is that we've got people talking about her! People actually care what's going on in Wonder Woman. And there are a lot of new people who care.
So, which is it? Is this Wonder Woman selling better than it has in a long time? Or are sales down?

It is interesting that whenever asked about sales questions, the people replying usually say yes but don't really give figures for it. It's also possible that Azzarello is saying this is selling more than JMS's and Phil Hester's Wonder Woman run.

Well honestly the entire post-Crisis version from Perez to Hester just never sold very well. The best it did was under Byrne and his stuff was shit.

Considering that DC is selling better overall it's possible that WW is selling better than it was pre-Flashpoint even though its chart position is lower.

Okay, that's gotta be one the oddest statements about superhero comics I've ever read or heard a fan make.

No kidding. Thor, Ares, Zatanna, Dr. Strange, Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman, etc. Magic and gods have been part of comics for as long as there have been comics.

If you were god, why would you be a super hero without being cursed?

Hercules?

Thor?

Captain Marvel (he's actually 6 Gods.)?

Battle Pope?

Some Gods like helping us poor mortals.

Captain Marvel is isn't quite a god as he "borrows" his powers from the gods, a couple of heroes and a king.
