    Artemis given her history and design appears and acts way out of character, but quite frankly, I like the new Artemis, and you can easily rationalize her happier station because of a fondness she has developed for her new position as Archon. Mr. Rucka does not flatly deny any continuity. He simply does not emphasize it, and that makes Wonder Woman a far smoother read. Read Full Review

    P.S. Whats with the cover? Makes Wonder Woman look like one of those short-skirted ensigns from 1960s Star Trek. Read Full Review

    Yes I can: it was 1987, and for about three years thereafter. Refreshingly, Rucka has not abandoned the work of the previous regime (despite the quick write-off of Trevor Barnes in the transitional Simonson story). The Jiminez run is under-appreciated; he factored in many guest stars from the larger DC universe, repositioned Themyscira and set up the new politics there, and looked into Diana's personal feelings far more than many writers do. He also explored Wonder Woman's past and family. Julia and Vanessa Kapetelis are definitely part of Diana's family, and the fate of Vanessa is clearly an open wound that Diana is fervent to heal.

    The good news: Its the first time Ive ever found Wonder Woman interesting as a character (and not just as a fetish icon). The bad news: I still dont really care much about her or the supporting characters. Maybe its because I dont like The West Wing either. Its worth checking out, but its not really for me. Just like every other mainstream DC title. Whats up with that? Read Full Review
