I’ve read the vintage seventies Wonder Woman, and only the two specials on Wonder Woman 77 so far. If I had to choose a favorite, until I read more, 195. The story and artwork is simply great. It was fun seeing Catwoman later as well.
Great choice! I love classic Catwoman looks. Glad you enjoyed it, and I hope you get a chance to read WW77! This will be open through September (technically they never close) so feel free to come back whenever you feel.
Hey @Lincolnfan78! I’m diggin’ your new @ handle! Getting to watch reruns of this was my reward for practicing my reading (WW comics ) when I was super little, and yes, I always loved that part. Thanks for coming by! And we look forward to your thoughts later. Now here’s a spin, just for you!
That’s a good idea to watch and read them together. Most of the time now I hear Gal when I’m reading Wonder Woman, but I heard Lynda Carter when reading this series. I know the 1970’s were a unique time for the character, but those stories still make for a good read, as well. Enjoyed both.
I haven’t always read with voices, but now I do. I kept watching the television series last week, only I prefer Wonder Woman with an accent. The delivery is different for this right now, but she still has a slight one.
I’ve always acted scenes out in my head when I read (I assumed everyone did this but maybe not?). An accent is honestly, probably always how I’ll hear this character— that’s how it’s been for me reading Diana (and all of the Amazons) from the start. Probably because most of my family has accents, plus, given her Mediterranean origin, I guess it just made sense to me for her to have one. I know that’s not the case for everyone, tho, but me too.
Side note: I was thrilled when Gal was cast and they didn’t make her change her voice! Just like I thought it was brilliant to cast a burly Hawaiian guy to play Aquaman. And I just like looking at Jason Mamoa—that too.
I haven’t read Wonder woman 77 before. I liked the 2 to 3 issue storylines of the ones I read. Introducing Minerva as Cheetah was a good one. Then we got to see Solomon Grundy, Psycho and Clayface, I wasn’t expecting those 3 to show up in this series. I think my favorite was taking down the corrupt Senator and Nuclear plant guy and the introduction is Celisa. Is she in more comics? Her character is interesting. I liked the artwork.
It is difficult to tell exactly what was going on in their relationship(s), but the comics have always seemed to me more fun than depravity. Either way, it is much more entertaining reading than the more bland superhero fare of the time.
As far as the ‘77 comics go, I enjoyed them all but really loved Batman ‘66 and Wonder Woman ‘77 best.
I also read Wonder Woman ‘77 and the Bionic Woman, but it had been so long since I saw the latter show I missed out on most of the references.
