I don't read Wonder Woman, but Flash is an amazing comic. One of my favorites.

Flash comics is better but pick Wonder Woman if you are a feminist.

Both are great, it depends on what you like, really.

Flash is a fantastic superhero comic, through and through. Its action-packed, quick paced, and lots of fun.

Wonder Woman feels less like a superhero comic and more like a dark mythological fantasy. Its very strongly story driven, not so much in the way of action or incredible feats, and the stories span out over a long period.

Although, I will point out, Flash has far better art.

I enjoy both, but at the end of the day, I definitely prefer The Flash, its consistently one of my favorite books every month and, in true Flash fashion, I don't see it slowing down any time soon. But at the end of the day, it depends on what you like.

I would have to go Wonder Woman,

Flash does have some nice art, but as much as I wanted to like it, I really was not pulled in. The Wonder Woman story is very interesting and is more about mythology and this power struggle of the gods, so you don't have to be a feminist ... or even a girl for that matter, I'm a guy and I love that series.

Toss up for me. They've both been really great because they've been self contained. Both have great art, choosing the better art between Cliff Chang and Brian Buccellato/Manapul is like deciding between two beautiful women. I'd probably just tell you to go ahead and read them both!

In my opinion Wonder Woman has slightly better writing while Flash has slightly better art. Both are really good for both though so it just depends on which you prefer to be better, writing or art.

Wonder woman if you read from the beginning it makes sense and the payoff at the end of the story will be more worth. Flash has amazing art but their is too much narration on every page and it isn't needed so it gets pretty boring.

Flash has amazing art but mediocre story telling,every time I open a Flash comic I cant help but wonder that I've read it already. Wonder Woman is always fresh and creative.

Both are amazing but Wonder Woman is better if you're going to read all the way from issue 1. Flash is better to jump right in. Because you might not understand WW if you start in the middle

But you're planning on reading all of it, WW is the better series.

This is though. Flash is my favorite comic book right now but I've always felt WW was pretty damn underrated. Both are great, really.

I read a selection of older trades for both recently (mainly borrowed stuff from the library)

I went in thinking Flash would probably be enjoyable and Wonder Woman would probably suck. Ended up the other way round, with Wonder Woman having the more imaginative, unique stories and Flash being kinda' production line story telling.

Of course maybe if I'd read different trades I would've come to different opinions....

Flash, I find Wonder Woman outside of Justice League and Animated Universe very boring.

I prefer Wonder Woman even though it's slow paced.
Flash has way too good art but the story is mediocre at best and the reimagining of some villians bug me.

Depends on what you want, as noted before; Flash is more typically superhero stuff while WW is one long dark fantasy story.

That said I would recommend Wonder Woman to anyone who is not reading it, the art is mostly brilliant (Akins isn't Chiang) and the story is very imersive. And I consider it the one relaunch the New 52 got right... which is why I fear that much of it will be undone by DC once Azzarello moves on.

I reciprocate the messages in this thread so far. Flash is the more typically superhero stuff with fun stories and gorgeous art whilst Wonder Woman is incredibly story driven with long spanning arcs and strong characterisation perspectives. Both are great series but I read Wonder Woman over Flash. Chiang, Sodzkura's and Akins' artwork is very distinctive and Azzarello tells a fresh story each issue with dark mythological themes and a novel integration of Orion and the New Gods into the New 52.

tbo, I picked up 1 issue of each (WW 18 & a Flash Annual) and I never bought another. Maybe I'm just tight on money :/

Flash every day of the week! Love the current story arc. Picked up Wonder Woman several times recently and couldn't get into it.
