I’ve been really enjoying Azzarello and Chiang’s take on Wonder Woman but this latest issue takes the fun to a whole new level. Wonder Woman #7 is not only my favorite single issue of the DCnU so far (followed most closely perhaps by Swamp Thing #7) but one of my favorite comics, period, in recent memory. Every page of this book busts out with exciting developments, intriguing revelations and wry humor, along with awesome designs by Chiang.

The sheer enjoyment of the craft put into this book is compounded by the fact that these creators are giving a very deserving classic character a whole new lease on life. In seven issues, they have turned Wonder Woman into a character that I genuinely admire and care about. They’ve given her a fascinating new world to explore and a growing cast of extremely enjoyable supporting characters. My only complaint is that I wish I could go through each issue and erase the ridiculous choker that Jim Lee imposed with his visual redesign, but that’s such an insignificant detail that it hardly detracts from the awesomeness.

This issue has generated a lot of butthurt controversy due to purely ideological reasons. While I’ve found the complaints sadly hilarious, I can only hope that the negative buzz ultimately draws more people into the best series that Wonder Woman has ever had. And I hope Azzarello and Chiang stay on this book a very long time.

  1. If there were historical Amazons, (and historians think it possible) they would have had to do something with their male children. Most likely, they just gave them away to neighboring tribles. Traditional societies are often very happy to have more boys. On the other hand, the Amazons likely took in unwanted girls. Girl children are often seen as negatives in traditional societies.
