Wonder Squadron | Book Club 12: The Brave and the Bold - Batman and Wonder Woman

Welcome to March’s book club, Wonder Squad! :wondersquadron1: This month we’ll take a look at a series that delves into Irish mythology, with writing and art by the amazing Liam Sharp! :shamrock:

“When a Celtic god’s murder leads to a war between the fairy folk and a possible breach between worlds, Wonder Woman must find the murderer and keep the peace while Batman investigates strange occurrences in Gotham City. As Diana must turn to the World’s Greatest Detective for help, the two heroes quickly learn their cases may be connected.”

:open_book: If you’ve read it and wish to discuss, drop your thoughts below when you’re ready!

Also, if you happen to have DCUI Ultra, you can read the collected version of this series. It includes a glossary of some of the Irish terms and mythological figures in the back, which I thought was pretty cool. :world_of_wonder:


Awesome! Really liked this when it came out, should be fun to revisit it.

Also good to see that there’s a glossary there because, if I’m perfectly honest, some of the plot went straight over my head the first time because I didn’t understand ANY of the celtic myth stuff. :sweat_smile:


Sharp has an art style that is far too classical/traditional for my taste, what I remember not liking about comic books (and illustrations) when I was a kid, and would see artists like - probably Frazetta when I had no idea whom the artists were by name. Today, I far more dislike what people often call the web comic or tumblr style of art and I did appreciate a number of panels of what Sharp did in this mini-series and with Morrison on their Green Lantern book, so if it pencils out with the rest of my current schedule, I’ll also be interested in this. I’ve never really read it, I just dipped in and glanced at pages and some of the discussion during one or two story-times that happened on a forum when this dropped.


You know, this post made me realize something – we never got to see Frank Frazetta draw Wonder Woman, and that, to put bluntly, is a freaking travesty. His style was TAILOR MADE for Diana. :sob:
