    Wonder Woman #2 is a fun read. I had an absolute blast reading it. Heinberg and Dodson have made a Wonder Woman fan out of me! I can't believe it. Now, I don't know if long-time Wonder Woman fans will be happy with this new direction or not. Me? Well, as a new reader I love this title and would definitely recommend any other non-Wonder Woman fans to give this title a try. Read Full Review

    Guest appearances by Bruce and Tim are more than welcome, though a special surprise guest at the end may not be. But this issue was fun, slick, action-filled and intent on moving in the right direction. And thats something Diana had lost since her last book crossed over with the Flash. Im hesitant to go for the next full bullet score, because classic status for this run is not yet guaranteed. But news that Adam Hughes (whom the Dodsons emulate) will be doing her new All-Star title seems almost redundant. Weve already got a beautiful looking Wonder Woman series underway. Read Full Review

    But it does lead me to the one thing that really bothers me about this issue: it completely shifts the focus away from Donna. In retrospect, I may have misread the relaunch: my original impression was that Heinberg set Donna up to be the legitimate New Wonder Woman, with Diana as a supporting character (a nice inversion, but also the natural progression of a "legacy" story akin to Starman). But she sits the whole issue out, and Diana gets the spotlight, so now I'm wondering if the whole thing was just a feint to get people talking, before snapping us back to status quo. It would be a touch too manipulative for my tastes, but if that's what Heinberg is doing here, he certainly seems to have pulled it off by creating the perfect stage for Diana's return.

    This high-profile series is already suffering from scheduling problems, but it isnt helping itself by providing a derivative story that people arent going to care enough about to pick up every other month. Despite her iconic status Wonder Woman has always seemed to be a problem for DC, but even this high-pedigree creative team doesnt look like theyve got the goods to save her from the perennial indifference of comicbook fans. Who Is Wonder Woman? Two issues in, the answer still isnt anywhere near clear, and theres only so much goodwill you can give a comic before you cut your losses and drop it. Suffice it to say that, despite one or two occasional promising signs (mainly in the artwork), I wont be buying the next issue... whenever it eventually comes out. Read Full Review
