sevangrim's The Brave and the Bold #33 - Ladies' Night review

Avatar image for sevangrim

...wow.

 Its not very often a single issue comic really makes you feel something powerful. And its even less likely when you start off hating it.
 I have always had a serious issue with men writing female-focused stories. Sometimes i feel like they just cant put themselves in a powerful womans shoes, and especially not an iconic powerful woman like Wonder Woman. its not something most men can manage, and i often feel like they shouldnt try. A perfect example of this is in this issue when WOnder Woman actuall says "I've never had much trouble getting someones clothes off."
  However, as i read the issue, i slowly fell in  love with it. Ignoring the handful of minor issues (Zat's powers kinda being misrepresented, and certain trademarks of the present existing in whats supposed to be an old story), the story was designed around its ending, which was very touching and emotional. 
 The whole Brave and the Bold series has been very wishy washy to me, but this issue is definitely a great read.

    So in issue 33 of The Brave and the Bold, Wonder Woman, Zatanna, and Barbara Gordon decide to have a night out on the town. Zatanna wants this to be a very special night. The ladies tear up the town, hitting every night club that comes their way. As the night ends Barbara decides to go home. We find out that Zatanna had a premonition that something terrible would happen to Barbara. At the end we see the premonition was Barbara getting shot by the Joker at her apartment, which is The Killing Joke...

    So Brave and the Bold isnt a book i get monthly, but after reading this issue, i have to say i'm adding it to my list.  This book, written by Straczynksi and amazing art by Chang, left me in awe and almost in tears.  It begins with Zatana having a seemingly meaningless nightmare but it turns out to be something more.  This leads to a Ladies Night Out (get it, haha) with Wonder Woman and Batgirl.  Now, when u first read ths book, you'll probably be wondering, whats the point? Well, as this issue ...
