With X-Men Red and Immortal being as good as they are, this series just feels like it's in the way. Hopefully they'll give Duggan a small irrelevant corner of the X-Men universe to play in and not interfere with the better series.

This is getting worse and worse with each issue, there were several time I cringed pretty hard. I cringed at the villain's correction, "Dr. Polaris" just enough to make sure we get that Polaris is super smart even though we never got any proof of that, we're just told she is. I laughed at his anti-nuclear propaganda. I cringed again at how he copied the whole "iron in your blood" and "fillings in more

The only good thing about is the fact we are closing to the end. And Emanuela Lupacchino art.

It was cringeworthy, so boring and predictable. Throwing this men are bad in every issue gets just that cringworthy. Doesnt matter if its a satyr, elf king, Thor or ofcourse Wonder Man. Diana needs to throw some one liner about patriarchy in every issue. If the stories were at least connected a more

Abrakadabra - Aug 10, 2021

https://www.comichron.com/monthlycomicssales/2021/2021-06.html What started as a normal 35k run peaked at 773 thanks to well sex, dropped to 27 on 774. July predictions are not yet complete. But WW according to presales not even yet registered https://www.comichron.com/monthlycomicssales/2021/2021-07.html Lets be realistic here. 775,6,7 will be even lower. Many people shitted on neo Gotham and Cyberpunk vibe of Tynion's Batman. But one thijg was certain. Dude made the sales almost double.

Ghoul - Aug 12, 2021

So go real Sensational and quit acting like you have some inside scoop, or know better. There are other Wonder Woman stories for you. Quoting sales and acting like you understand the industry is weak, and you’re clearly hurt by something else.
