Hey everyone! The first Wonder Woman crossover event in decades has arrived, and you are all cordially invited to join the discussion!
Reading order and release dates are listed below…
After the events of Nubia & the Amazons, the dangers of Doom’s Doorway have found their way to Man’s World and garnered the attention of not just one, but all 3 Amazonian tribes! Who among them is worthy of leading them into the future? Find out as the bravest, wisest, and fiercest warriors compete to be champion of all the Amazons!
Overall, solid start – got a mix of the two classic reasons for crossovers, that being a tournament and a murder mystery. There wasn’t a lot of either in these first two issues, as most of the pages were spent watching these three tribes of amazons being salty at each other. Might be a little slow for those who expect more plot or action, but I personally enjoyed the tea being spilled.
I am enjoying this so far - but I am bummed that I watched that teaser video, because as soon as they said someone would die I just knew it was going to be Hippolyta. So I was spoiled by knowing who would be important enough to matter but whose absence would still allow the story to work. Ah well. Heartbreaking, especially with that previous scene with her and Phillipus.
I love seeing all the sister tribes interact. I will say I think this will be confusing to anyone who hasn’t read the lead-up material, particularly Nubia’s book. So many characters were introduced there, I think it may be overwhelming without that knowledge. (Nubia’s book has been outstanding though, so it’s definitely worth checking out! )
I also noticed a pretty big print error in the first issue. There’s really no spoiler involved but I’ll put it under a cut:
Furuka and Diana’s speech bubbles are swapped in the 2 close-up panels (but correct in the distance shots):
It’s clear who should be speaking when you read them (particularly since Furuka’s speech is so biting and un-Diana-like). I guess it’s not a big deal except…this is her first crossover in 30 years? The issue was even delayed by a week? Does no one proof-read these issues?
Anyhow…I am absolutely looking forward to the next issue, especially since it is in Diana’s own book. Excited to see what comes next!
I read the first two chapters yesterday. My mini review copied from the What Are You Currently Reading thread:
Great stuff. Loved seeing the Amazon culture on full display with all the subtle and not so subtle differences between the different factions. I did not see that death coming. Firmly invested in the rest of this story.
@Angel212, I didn’t read the first 5 issues of Nubia’s book. Though I could tell it would have provided much better insight, I’m not finding this hard to follow. Kudos to the writers for that. I also noticed the dialogue switch on that page. Probably one of the more glaring errors I’ve seen. Tsk tsk DC.
