I've been really into Morrison's Batman lately. And on the DCMB, we're doing a massive re-reading, from the Black Casebook through everything else, in preparation for The Return of Bruce Wayne in May.
One thing Morrison does is to tie in all sorts of seemingly minor points from past stories into what he's doing now. And then he wraps everything with oblique references to lord knows what. One has to use Wikipedia and all sorts of occult books and everything else to "get" all the references.
The discussion, at least on the DCMB, concerning Morrison's Batman is fascinating and engaging.
My question is this: Do people here want Wonder Woman to explode intellectually the way Batman has? Do we want it so dense that we need to discuss it on a constant basis to even break it down? Is it something anyone is interested in, or are people just wanting "fun" stories?
Can JMS even deliver on something like this, with Diana?
I don't know. I'm very interested in the new direction, and when I look at something like Batman, I'm fascinated in the possibilities. But I'm not sure it's possible with Wonder Woman.
What say you?
