Getting to the first page of the preview I was confused for a few moments before going to the next page, lol.

This is simply pathetic to say, but I actually was very very sad at the end of this issue because I'm sure it means I won't get to write Dinah again for a while.

Love Dinah, and LOVE Diana and Dinah together. One of my favorite character combos in comics that I've been lucky enough to write. Catman and Deadshot, Bane and Scandal, Giganta and Atom, Deadpool and Outlaw, and DEFINITELY Diana and Dinah.

Gail Simone taking issue with "celebrity culture" in her writing? The hell, you say! (http://pwbeat.publishersweekly.com/blog/2009/08/24/oh-no-not-the-gossip-war-again/)

Yes, indeed!

But I have to pick, it's what I do. If you take Diana's leonine mane and braid it, we won't see that little rat tail she's got going there. It's going to be as thick as the ropes we'd find where battleships are docked.

There's nothing wrong with this per se but it still doesn't feel "right" for Diana or Dinah

Sexy! Sexy! Fight! Fight! Say it out loud, Diana -- you don't own a thong (see cover, yay).

Magic, yes. Fun, yes. Sword, oh, yes! Girl, uh, no. Happy? Maybe compared to Bruce...

I'm going to icon Diana's eye roll.

Hee hee -- Ted Grant is the Booster Gold of the boxing world.

Two Stephanie Brown sightings -- one Spoiler figurine where Dinah's yanking Diana (wait, Dinah is pulling Diana? Diana's totally letting her) -- of course, Steph's a little older there. The other is the ring batgirl -- of course, Steph's a lot older there.

I love it when Gail takes a poke at popular culture, particularly comic culture, with their action figures that look nothing like the characters (yes, anime WW I'm looking at you). Reminds me of the Hollywood issues of WW. It's as close as you can really come in a WW comic of breaking the fourth wall and it's the perfect character to do it with since if Diana really existed (as she does in the DCU) her face and likeness would be everywhere - with or without her permission.

And as for Dinah, beyond superficial looks this appears to be an entirely different person than in BC/GA. Other than Bedard in BoP and sometimes McDuffie in JLA it's difficult to find writers who continue to portray BC as well (or with the same "voice") as Gail did. I'll be sad when this arc is over.

Hm, just a few things...

It's just "Ginza" not "the Ginza" (maybe that's a joke?). There are no toy shops in Ginza, but I'm hoping they took the subway. That hipster boy would be getting some dirty looks because it's illegal to smoke and walk at the same time in Ginza (reminders are even spray painted on the sidewalks). The ramen bowls are too small...should be about the size of their heads. They have nothing to drink, which is weird because tea is automatic and free. If you are just one or two people in a ramen shop in Ginza, you will sit with others at a table. They don't waste space. Otherwise, not so bad in the culture depicting department.

The art is really nice too and the dialouge is decent. Good stuff.

I think it's okay to not expect a comic writer to be more accurate than what you can find on wikipedia. Less is lazy, more is just too time-consuming. >_>

The really funny thing is that isn't nearly as bad as the more recent Ame-Comi statue. Fun times, though. Reminds me of when Dinah bought out the whole lot of JLI-costume figures in Bird 88!

"Kindest" possible interpretation of people's actions? I don't know, I don't see what's kind or nice about it. What am I missing?

Besides, this interpretation doesn't necessarily contradicts Diana's. Different cultures emphasize different traits in one same character/story, according to what resonates most to them.

From: [identity profile] gailsimone.insanejournal.com
Diana is wondering if all that stuff means that she is seen purely as a warrior and sex symbol in a different culture, hence the 'swordgirl' and the military styling of the invisible jet model hanging overhead.

Dinah says, no no no, they're just saying they like and accept you, it's their pop cultural spin on you. It's a good thing in that way.

That make sense?

As a genuine question, rather than an attempt at being bitchy which I appreciate this may sound like, what's your problem with it? Diana doesn't have access to the ambassadorial support staff she had when Rucka was writing her.

That action figure doesn't look much worse than what she actually wears.

I'm tired of Wonder Woman/Black Canary friendship. I want to see WOnder Woman be friends with someone else, like Vixen, or maybe Elastigirl from Doom Patrol.

.......

Waaaaaaaaaaait a minute.

Is Diana's fighting outfit (in the last pages) based on the "Possible Future" she would've had if she kept training under Shiva or something? The one where she just becomes a badass assassin without regard for anyone's life?

From: [identity profile] bariman1987.insanejournal.com
Dunno about Diana's outfit, but Dinah's fighting outfit is sort of a pirate wench ensemble. The possible future costume she imagined up was basically her regular costume, with some added skulls and bits. And torn fishnets, which regular Dinah would NEVER tolerate.
