NuDiana? JMS' Wonder Womans Progress Part 2

Part 1

I showed reviews for issue 602 but not 601, the first full issue of the new run. Lets go back a couple months.

IGN: 7.5

CBR: 2 ½ Stars

Weekly Comic Book Review: B

Too Dangerous For a Girl: After this issue, I'm pretty sure I will. Having accepted that we'll be getting a different Diana for at least a year, it's apparent to me that she's not so different. This Diana is smart, brave, curious and compassionate. I can't see it being long before she steps forth as Wonder Woman.

Blog@Rama: Despite a mostly lifelong indifference to the character Wonder Woman and the writing of J. Michael Straczynski, I find Wonder Woman #601 a pleasant and intriguing reading experience.

Its just Some...: B+

Crave Online: There are pros and cons here to be sure, but unfortunately, Wonder Woman #601 brings us no closer to being convinced that revamping Wonder Woman was in any way necessary. JMS is a respected and talented writer, but his direction on Wonder Woman suggests that he’s bitten off more than he can chew. Could it be that the uber-scribe stumbled upon one character that he couldn’t write well, and so changed her to fit more firmly in his mold? Time will tell, but if issue #601 is any indication, signs point to yes.

Average Rating=B
