Wonder Woman: To Continue or Not to Continue?
So, the question is, do I catch up to the current issue?
I love the mythology involved in this comic and the way the various gods are portrayed. Poseidon as a HUGE sea monster? So cool! Hades as a child with dripping candles on his head? Did not see that one coming! Hermes as an alien-looking being? Very cool!
I really have no complaints about the first six issues. I love this artist's portrayal of Wonder Woman. I've never been much of a Wonder Woman fan because I find her costume ridiculous (why is she STILL wearing a bathing suit?) and she ends up just looking odd, somehow. But the angular lines of her face and her body build (broad shoulders, long, thin legs) done by this artist really work in her favor. She is both tall and imposing, as well as womanly.
I blazed through those seven issues in about an hour. As soon as I put one down, I was going straight to the next one. I am really curious to find out about how she deals with Hades kidnapping Zola.
However, I'm leaving it to you, readers: do I keep reading Wonder Woman?
