Exactly! It’s not really what I sincerely picture when I ship WonderTrev, but it absolutely works in a high school reimagining and also it is utterly adorable and hilarious.
EDIT: Possibly the best moment is when she names her pet Griffin “Steve.” If that’s not a high school girl with an incurable crush, I don’t know what is.
IKR? . this series sooo much!
As I eagerly await this Tuesday’s new Wonder Woman comic…here’s something else to eagerly await (for quite awhile probably):
I wasn’t sure where else to post this, so I guess I’ll just post it here.
On this day 1 year ago (according to my HBO Max bill lol), I decided it might be nice during a pandemic-y Christmas season to treat myself to a new superhero movie. All I was expecting from Wonder Woman 1984 was an evening of entertainment and distraction from real world problems. What I got was quite a bit more than that.
Diana’s character spoke to something I desperately needed to see right then. She was powerful enough to shatter guns or flip a truck - but she acted from a place of love and compassion. It was a combination quite unlike any I could recall seeing in powerful female heroes. It made me think - if a big-budget movie starring such a character could be made, maybe there was more hope than cynicism in this world.
One year and
I’m afraid to think about how many comics later, and Wonder Woman is more important to me than ever. She’s just good. And right now I need to see and read about goodness. That’s where I’m at.
And were it not for my compulsion to read all the WW things, I never would have joined DCUI and found this amazing community. So that’s kind of a big deal.
Some brief thoughts on WW #783, since I’ve waited a long time for it…
Of course, I’m talking about Steve and Diana’s first meeting since her return from the Afterworlds. As usual, saving the world doesn’t allow sufficient time for sweet reunions, but this was still pretty good for now. I’ll take this as my belated birthday present, DC, so thank you.
I love that Deadman is still Diana’s teammate through all this. They have such a great dynamic. I hope he sticks around.
As a final note, can I say how happy it makes me that writers have recently brought back the boomerang tiara?
Yeah, you are, Diana, and don’t bother apologizing for it.
I’m grateful for this writing team. Looking forward to next month.
This current run has been a delightful treat. Im loving all the obscure callbacks from older concepts.
You are absolutely correct! This current run is a pure delight. There are some nice callbacks while moving forward.
Indeed! Were seeing both new ideas such as Seigfried who might find a permanent place in Wonder Womans supporting cast, as well as old familiar faces such as the Holliday girls and Image-Maker.
I am excited to see what comes next with this wild run. I suspect we have also been seeing an adaption of Merboy and that merkingdom from the silver age
Did anyone else read the Sensational Wonder Woman Special that released today? Feel free to discuss here! (Please blur spoilers. )
I particularly loved the first story in the collection. Just beautiful.
I enjoyed the issue, particularly the second story (I follow Kollins on twitter, so I was excited to see him tackling Wonder Woman again). A bit trippy, but quite fun. Third tale reminded me of a wacky comic they did for Wonder Woman on ice cream cartons a few years ago, but of course much more detailed, but the similarities tickled me.
My favorite of the three stories was the first one. Admittedly not for the A plot, but for that beautiful design Blue Snowman was sporting. That combined with just how the villain was portrayed and how she interacted with Diana really made it for me.
Okay, I need details on this. There was a Wonder Woman comic that appeared on ice cream cartons?!
She also had a neat appearance in last year’s “Love Is A Battlefield” comic!
Indeed! I did a writeup of the whole ice cream carton comics here! https://thebatmanuniverse.net/edys-ice-cream-3/ (apologies for the self promotion, but I hope it’s interesting! )
This is absolutely amazing. Thank you for sharing!
(I am so disappointed I missed out on trying Golden Lasso Twirl ice cream. )
Yeah, I kinda wish I coulda tried all of these! I only found out about them a month ago, and did lots of research before getting my article proposal approved.
I liked stories 1 and 3, the second story kind of fell flat for me. It wasn’t but it wasn’t as fun as the other two. I am not sure if anyone remembers that WW84 one-shot that really didn’t have anything to do with the movie, but that story would have fit in with this anthology. I will have to drag out of the long box in a bit to give that another read.
The third story was great. The swap trope can and is overused but it works to great affect here. I also would have loved for Wonder Woman to go back to class at the end with Devyn and take that history teacher to school.
Oh right~ That neat little story where Diana and Steve were on a date and Blue Snowman was revealed to be genderfluid
