So what is a consistent hit in your book?
Consistently = how long for you?

The biggest selling issue of recent memory was the Heinberg #1 in 2006, which sold more than twice what the Azzarello #1 did. Of course, Heinberg dropped the ball there too, and so did DC. Azzarello is at least doing the most important thing a writer needs to do to sell books: he is, in fact, writing them.

i don't think this current rendition really places her as a member of the trinity. is she even considered as such now? thinking of her as a major figure in DC, i am not sure i like giving her such a "historic' backstory. i suppose i'd say the same about thor over at marvel. but thor is a great supporting character and i guess thinking of wonder woman in that way, so is she and in that sense this is a rich world for her to inhabit. i just won't think of her as part of the big three anymore.
but also i watched an interview with azzarello on youtube and didn't like the way he treated the interviewer or answered the reasonable questions he was being asked which has soured me on following his work at the moment. but i'm sure i'll get over it.
Now that I actually think about it, I'm not sure if I do. Right now, it's one of those comics that I've been picking up every month but I can't say I'm proper gripped by the story yet. To be honest, it's one of those cases where I've not really followed the story from issue to issue at all. If someone asked me right now, what was going on in wonder Woman at the moment, I honestly couldn't tell them much more than Diana's wandering about with some bird bloke and a woman and there's a guy with a candle on his head and a cockney bloke and some stuff has happened. Oh, and Zeus is Diana's dad.
8 issues in, it's probably time for a proper catch-up. If I read 'em in one go, I'll probably get a better idea of what's going on and may well find a a new appreciation for the book as a whole. Right now though, my impression from just reading it month after month is that it's basically a bit bleak and a little bit boring. Although, to be fair, I've never been a huge fan of when Wonder Woman was just all about the Gods and stuff, even before Flashpoint.
