New previews from Wonder Woman: Rise of the Olympian - part 8

I will skip my usual complaints and just Wonder about this image.

From IGN.





I spent a summer in Acapulco when I was a kid. Playing in the sun from sunrise, swimming til sunset at the beach and at the hotel pool, and watching Godzilla and other monster movies til we passed out. Needless to say, I dreamt of huge monsters coming out of the shores and I could see them from my hotel room as they made landfall, huge monster armies deep into the dark night horizon.

This brought those fun summer memories all back.


*edit* sorry it took me so long to fix the LJ cut

Woah.
Whatever problems people may have with the Wonder Woman series, I think everyone can admit that the 7 pages of this preview are 100% Bad Ass.

Cool.

Also, why does the lj cut read 'dark wolverine?'

Woo HOO! This looks AWESOME!

Though kind of jarring to see Diana all collapsed when she was concious at the end of last issue.

And they say Wonder Woman has a lame supporting cast.

As much as I loath the way Byrne plays fast and loose with continuity, I have to say that the best thing about his Wonder Woman run was making Hippolyta the Golden Age Wonder Woman.

Yes, I know it makes no freaking sense even continuity wise. Yes, it was Hippolyta and not Diana. But I can't help if, after Crisis on Infinite Earths erased her from WWII history, my fanboy blood rushes when I see Wonder Woman back with the Justice Society beating the crap out of Axis soldiers where she belongs. And even the slightly retconned history that came out of that I didn't mind.

Polly had a great death scene, one of the few well-written scenes among the train wreckage that was Our Worlds At War. The wake held by Alan Scott, Ted Grant and Jay Garrick over a poker game still makes me "d'aww." And I still have mixed feelings about them bringing her back.

Hey, it's the insulting family-lovin' Amazon from the Wonder Woman animated film!

Cover looks awesome. Looks like the Argonauts are toast.

Let's ring up the King of Atlantis, surely he can control these puppies or bring some counter beasties into - oops, scratch that. Hephaestus Cannon it is, then. Is that like a Vulcan Cannon? XD

I won't get used to the Botticelli shell for long distance flights. No place to sit, no seatbelts, no windscreen, no air-to-air missiles... Really cool for a magic metro ride around the island though.

Does Clark lose his powers under a Hunter's Moon? :D

They should turn this page into a wall scroll. It's so badass it doesn't even need context.

So appparently the Amazons are allied with giant sharks.

Or at least they used to be.

Phillipus is supposed to be African-Themyscirian, but she doesn't seem all that darker than Hippolyta. Noticeably darker, but not so's I'm sure.

Speaking of, telling someone else "their place" can trip you over some unfortunate implications (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/UnfortunateImplications) in so many ways.

Huh, when I first saw the image, my first thought was that Hippolyta's sword had been lost or stolen and she was asking the monsters to fetch it for her. And I was all, "Whoa! Whoever has her sword -- JUST GIVE IT TO HER!"

Funny the interpretations you can come up with sometimes.

Hey, are those two Amazons at the beginning Persephone and Alexa from the WW movie?

What was the point of having megalodons, besides keeping Nazis away, protect the island again? They don't really seem effective at all....

I want to get excited by this but, but Diana's babbling just brings back with a rude shock how much I dislike Gail's handling of her
