Four scans from Blackest Night: Wonder Woman #2.


So now Diana has herself a black ring, and fights Mera.  Mera gets in a few good hits, but Diana's about to gut her:



Diana flies off and tries to remove the black ring to kill herself, but can't.  Instead, she goes on a rampage around Themyscira, killing Cassie, BL-Donna, and Hippolyta, and then makes out with Batman.  This increasingly odd turn of events is revealed to be:




That double-spread was damn hard to work with, because my scanner's not quite large enough, so I had to figure out how to stitch images together using ArcSoft Photostudio.

Nice scene, and I love seeing Aphrodite's Drew Johnson design again (the 'Diana Prince' thing is still annoying, but I suppose if that's how it's going to happen in the main title continuity should be observed).

I know, right? Gah, the black lantern costume looks even cooler under Nicola's pencil. I think I want to demand that Diana gets a more colorful version of it for her official costume.

Raven is the only DCU major empath that I know of, and I don't think she'd do much good. She'd be a cheese burger to the Black Lanterns more than anything.

The Star Sapphire costume looks worse in this one.

Is Diana the only person to resist the BL ring? A whole lot of people have tried to reach the BLs, but I can't remember a single one so much as pausing. Diana managed to make hers *retreat*, turn on BL Donna, then finally break it. Which is really awesome.

I think it's because the ones who were changed at the end of 5 weren't quite the same Black Lantern wise as the ones who were dead and possessed by the rings. With them (Diana and groups) the rings probably just suppressed their souls or something.

Eh, every time I see Diana in that Star Saphstripper outfit, I think it's one of the reason Johns wanted to do Blackest Night -- to get her in that outfit.

I went into this series with high expectations. And I am lowering them with each issue. Not that I didn't enjoy this but I am not as in love with it as I thought I would be. Rucka and WW together should have me ridiculously head over heels but it's not. And the liplock with Batman? Why? The push Mera is getting is out of hand. We get that she's a bad ass, but she is never ever going to be a challenge for Wonder Woman. Never. Hear me Johns? NEVER.

Also I was surprised to see that Nicola had help with pencils. The switch between Pansica and her is jarring. I thought she came off of Secret Six to do this?

From: [personal profile] kingrockwell
Motto to all of this. Rucka Wondy shouldn't leave me so damn disappointed.
Though he has stated that this mini is more him serving the goals of Blackest Night, which makes me wonder how much of it is Johns-mandated.

And the Love thing just gets worse, because it's all about Aphrodite, which feels like further evidence of Johns' pre-Crisis fetish.

In summary, :( :( :(

Doesn't count. She'd be wearing sunglasses instead of that crown if it were.
Moreover, being that Aphrodite seems to be front and center in Diana's life due to the constant Violet, I suspect it's there to serve Johns' pre-Crisis fetish.

philippos42: "Dark Vengeance!" (future)
From: [personal profile] philippos42
Oooh, nice use of a patron goddess to tie into the emotioncolor. So, Di's association with "wuv" "love" is due to Aphrodite being her patron? So Geoff (who's presumably sketched this mess out) is trying to reinstate that Volume 1 idea?

Now I'm wondering if the abuse of Athena in Gail's run was part of an editorially mandated repudiation of the Rucka-after-Pérez run where Athena was Di's major patron, SO THAT DI COULD BE REATTACHED TO APHRODITE!

I like the story well enough, but considering my standards with Rucka with it comes to writing Diana, this fell short indeed. The "Diana Prince" detail makes me want to pull my hair out, and the liplock with Bruce doesn't make sense either. Why can't we just have a cool scene of her simply rejecting the BL ring through sheer willpower? It was much better in BL #6.

Nicola's art is A+ as usual. Except that stupid costume.

Going to have to echo what everyone else here said, more or less. Diana's Sapphire costume is horrible. 90's horrible.

Something has seriously skewed in the DCU when the "good" version of a character wears -less- than the evil version. (BL WW still looks cooler, of course).
