Wow is it just me or is the dialogue, like, really bad?

"The Four Horsewomen" part one! Paula Von Gunther, a.k.a. Warmaster, has assembled her four horsewomen...and  now she's out for Wonder Woman's blood! Plus, Diana is put on trial for the sins of the Amazons! Is it all just lies, or is there really a horrible secret the Amazons have kept from their own champion?

Honestly this was fine but just not what I really wanted in a spooky story. Also way too explain-y.

I struggled with the dialogue in this one, it didn’t feel like real people. The story itself isn’t anything special.

2020 Ironheart #1

By: Vita Ayala, David Messina

The Robot Revolution is in full swing, as is the Arno Stark–funded crackdown on artificial intelligence. That means that Riri Williams and N.A.T.A.L.I.E., the A.I. based on Riri’s deceased best friend, are in for a world of trouble. Can they weather the coming storm together, or will 2020 tear them apart?

Nooo less math please. I think that this may be another horror story whose dread is somewhat undercut by the story’s progression.

The long-lost crew of the Derleth emerges from the wind-scoured stones and twisted pines of the Sinnikik atoll, looking not a day older than when they disappeared 40 years before. They come bearing impossible, dizzying gifts for their rescuers. But at what price?

I wish these resentments had actually been established at some point before, but this comic is such a mishmash of things and events that I barely have a sense of any of these characters as people, let alone as people who operate as anything other than a completely unified mass of spandex and punches. Really liked the art, though.
