There's an entire world out there... 0

When a young Diana ventures from Themiscyra to the World of Man, she is quickly attacked by a Kraken. However, a young Aquaman saves her life and thus the story of an arranged marriage and a tale of betrayal begins.  The Good It is not your standard superhero romp. In fact, it's quite far from it. Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning just might be the first ones in years to try to actually introduce Wonder Woman. Because in recent years, it appears that everyone was hellbent...

Can We Keep This Version of Diana? 11

The first issue of Flashpoint: Wonder Woman and the furies. And it is good.The GoodWhat isn't good about this issue? It kept me at the edge of my seat at the turn of every page. If you're unfamiliar with Wonder Woman, or never really had an interest in her character, this is still a good book for you to pick up. This isn't the Wonder Woman we are all familiar with; this, like many of DC's Flashpoint characters, is a completely different take on Wonder Woman's character- and it is awesome.The cre...

Abnett and Lanning Magic Elevates Flashpoint's Universe 1

The writing team of Abnett and Lanning have quietly become the masters of political intrigue. Typically that colossal power struggle is placed against an intergalactic backdrop, but they prove just as capable of creating a similar effect in the DC Universe. Or rather, the Flashpoint alternative to the DC Universe; this intoduction to the Wonder Woman tie-in to the Flashpoint event helps to flesh out the proposed marriage of Wonder Woman and Aquaman, and the events that set the war between Atlant...

Almost More Summary Than Story 1

Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning give a Flashpoint history lesson, showing the meeting and wedding of Aquaman and Wonder Woman. Unfortunately, it really does read a bit more like a history lesson than a story as DnA simply do not have enough room in one issue to cover the material.  The issue begins with Diana's first excursion into man's world, where she coincidentally crosses the path of a a baby kraken and this coincidentally catches the attention of Arthur. It is a very contrived first meeting, b...

A Warmongering Amazon? 0

Myself with friends and fellow Wonder Woman fans have been up in arms against DC Comics' latest treatment of its most famous heroine. Mostly due in part to the botched WONDER WOMAN relaunch starting in issue #600 (officially in #601), envisioned by J. Michael Straczynski and the bloodthirsty Amazon warrior that replaced our beloved Wonder Woman, a protector of peace, commonly known for turning enemies into allies. Coupled with a failed WONDER WOMAN TV pilot that starred an even angrier version o...

Flashpoint: Secrets & Lies? 0

Wonder Woman and Aquaman are about to walk down the isle but not if [secret character] has anything to do with it!  Writing. First let me tell you I haven't read very much WW stuff but this is really good and if this was an ongoing I'd probablly get it. So we get a glimpse of Flashpoint Garth eh that kinda annoyed me a bit but thats it. Really a great story that has you left wondering alot of things. Wonder Woman is really really awesome in this book as is Aquaman! There is great diologue! We do...

The marriage. 0

Flashpoint: Wonder Woman and the Furies # 1 of 3. I was very very very excited for this issue because of Wonder Woman's part in Flashpoint and the cover looked awesome! So this issue is about Diana's past in this Flashpoint world. This issue is about Diana's marriage with Arthur Curry. Well let's just say it didn't go so hot. For the 1st time Themyscira has joined with men (Atlanteans). Of course both sides don't accept it but Diana and Arthur both know that it's the wise thing to do to keep eve...

A solid book top to bottom 0

We've seen Aquaman's first leap into the Flashpoint mini series pool. Now it's Wonder Woman's turn with "Flashpoint: Wonder Woman and the Furies". The backdrop of the Flashpoint world centers around a war between Aquaman and Wonder Woman. This issue gives us the history behind what caused this war between ancient civilizations.  Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning co-write this series that reveals the first meeting between Diana and Arthur and their subsequent wedding. We get to see the events that pa...

Going to the chapel, and we're going to get parried 0

To be honest I have not been liking the Flashpoint version of Diana.  A bit too much of a departure from the character in my opinion, but I thought this issue was quite interesting.  It sort of retells the Wonder Woman origin again (for what must be the hundredth time) but does so in a way which is quite different from the rest.  A marriage of political convenience with Aquaman is arranged as the two cultures are looking to rejoin mankind.  Of course to get to where they are in Flashpoint someth...
