NuDiana? JMS' Wonder Womans Progress Part: 7-With Phil Hester
#38 Wonder Woman #605
Sales Figures: 35,495(down 1,910 units)
Proving that a higher ranking doesn't mean more sales. Now, Hesters first issue which was solicited before he was on board so, might need a couple issues before we see a difference.
CBR Revieww: 3 Stars
Bright Hub: B
Too Dangerous...: All in all, this is a huge improvement on the last few issues. Diana feels like the star of her own book, and it seems that the book is going somewhere. Phil Hester, I give you the Amazon Salute.
Weekly Comic Review: B-
Best Shots@Rama:[Artist Don Kramer]does trip up a little with the facial expressions, however -- for some reason, Wondy has this weird half-smile that causes a nostril to flare up, and it looks just a little goofy to me. The overall direction of Wonder Woman might still be up in the air, but with Hester on board, everything at least is getting stable.
Found this interesting.
This new abandoned TV show made me think just how many times have DC/Warner let the Wonder Woman fans down.
Here's the list and please add if I have missed something:
1. Cancelled cartoon in the 90's (Wonder Woman and the Star Riders)
2. Cancelled Tv show in the 90's
3. Cancelled movie with Sandra Bullock attached (though that was a blessing)
4. All Star Wonder Woman
5. Wonder Woman 10 cent adventure
6. Joss Whedon's firing from the scripting/directing duties
7. Half assed comic relaunch with Allan Heinberg
8. Amazons Attack
9. Again an half assed relaunch with JMS
10. TV show shelved again

I'd add passing on Ben Caldwell's manga pitch and Darwynn Cooke's Wonder Woman pitch.
