Ever since I read issue #3, I've been wrestling with whether Wonder Woman: Dead Earth is the modern comics equivalent of Dark Knight Returns, but everyone is too invested in their own insulated silos to realize it.

This series, simply put, is brilliant.

Wonder Woman: Dead Earth #3

By: Daniel Warren Johnson
Released: Jun 17, 2020

The revelation of the Haedras’ true nature overwhelms even the mighty Amazon Princess, forcing Diana to seek out the one person who can help her: Superman. But what Diana finds at the Fortress of Solitude is one of the most shocking secrets in the history of Wonder Woman.

Brian Michael Bendis appears to have found a groove for Superman post-"reveal". His Superman/Mongul fight (with Legion/United Planets/Superboy implications) and his ongoing harassment/inquisition of Lois Lane on the homefront made for a fun juxtaposition. And then the two come together at the end to tie the issue up with a bow. Very well done.

I enjoyed this book and apparently am blessed in that I don't know a ton about either Strange or Terrific. I gather there are some continuity consistencies that are maddening.

AdmiralWhiskers - Sep 11, 2019

Understood and appreciated. I suppose the variance between your score and mine (6.5) is that you chose to penalize King's writing, which I actually thought was among his more intelligible, and not reward perhaps the best artwork in any DC book this week. Seriously, the art was a 6 on a 5 scale. I'm not saying you are wrong for your stance -- perhaps I was with mine? And then there is the meta-issue of how King could totally isolate the couple from the atrocities taking place in Gotham!

Nihilist - Sep 11, 2019

Yeah, the art was fantastic. Simply breathtaking. I decided to penalize King strongly, as you assumed, because not only nothing happened in the issue, it was also super stiff and forced. That's the worst kind of filler. So, story and dialogues are 0/10 in my book, the art 10/10, so average 33%.

Tom King is a goner, so I'm presuming that this arc is toast within 12 months of his departure. That makes reviewing this little escapade as anything more than the oddity that it is...well, kinda pointless. I don't mind the "City of Bane" arc itself, but the "how we got here" part with Thomas Wayne was dreadful. But I digress, and I don't want to continue beating up on the soon-departed. >
It was an decent story for what it was...A sexy little rehab of body and mind on the French Riviera or wherever. Perhaps the most intelligible story I've read by King, and that counts for a lot with him.

My complaints are cosmetic:

1. The Cat/Bat dialogue is annoying. I know King is wed to that terminology, but he leans on it way too hard.

2. Training in spandex suits is a little more than silly when you're in some tropical paradise.

3. Practicality aside, they must have zero issues about personal privacy. Never mind that BRUCE WAYNE is vacationing with some knockout babe...and OH WAIT ITS BATMAN.

King hits the relationship notes in a stunted way, and the big pages of working out suggest he's healing. That counts for plot progress, I hope.

The art was great. I bet the artist had a blast not drawing sewage infested streets and chemical warehouses. He draws pretty women in paradise quite well.

Not much more to say about it. Except that GOTHAM IS BURNING AND ALFRED IS DEAD.
