    This Was An Origin

    Linally got around to finishing Wonder WOman Earth One. Honestly, not as bad as I had expected. Grant Morrison came across very condescending during interviews about the book. but the book itself doesn't come of that way (well, not as much). It was an enjoyable read although nothing praise worthy. Let me break it down for you


    The main thing that keeps this book afloat is the dialogue and the art. Characters like Etta Candy were stand outs. I can see what Morrison was going for with this world, and overall I gotta give it props. I do think that in runs like Azzerello, they were depicted as way to primitive.


    I think the book itself was too short to fully enjoy it or to fully flesh out this world of theirs. It feels like only the broad strokes were painted, and while that doesn't make it a bad thing, I would need to see more in the next volume, but I just don't think that's gonna be the case. Overall, just taking a gander at it again, it feels like the pacing is way too quick IMO.


    Thinking back, this is probably one of the Earth One books I enjoyed the least. It's a fun read, but I'm glad I got this on sale.

    Rating- 6/10

Zack Snyder got these questions wrong in two Superman movies, and all the marketing and special effects in the world could not save them from critical and audience backlash. Grant Morrison, a comic writer with a fairly good trac...

      A Wonderful Book for the Ultimate Woman 0

      Spoiler-free review: Wonder Woman – Earth One. I almost didn’t read you because of the reviews of others. Even though it has been mostly positive reviews that I have seen, I must admit that I had some preconceived notions about the content of this book. I based my opinion off of the reviews of others and also some spoilers, but because I had an idea of what Wonder Woman should be, I was not open to what she could be. Grant Morrison explores the latter in this book and he and his crea...
