    Complain somewhere else then, this is getting stupid and repetitive to listen to.

    I, for one, hope you don't go. I'm glad to see new readers (the old ones are getting old ).

    So, you're admitting that you are a "pretentious, artsy snob"?

    Superhero comic books only become art to the extent that their banal, unrealistic fantasy and garish styles go too far and become interesting. Attempts to ground them in reality can only ruin them.

    Can't we all try to get along a little better? Please? Do we need to try and push others out? After all, it's just a comic, right?

    I know the same-old same-old gets old. But, if you want, you don't have to "listen" at all - feel free to skip posts/posters.

    When I say this is the first time I ever liked WW, keep in mind, I have never bought a WW comic before or a comic ever before the N52. I have said too that I would purchase Morrison's WW too which is more pure I guess. Its just WW never stood out as a character I liked in the JL cartoon.

    I liked Wonder Woman before this run, and I was at least generally famiiar with Azzarello's style before he started this run. Yet I'm enjoying this tale a lot.

    Perhaps how and why she left in the first place? Maybe how she ended up in London? I'd like to see more back-story for the Amazons themselves, if we haven't by then.

    There's room on this forum for every single Wonder Woman fan, new or veteran. Yes, I do think some newer fans may leave when Azzarello leaves the book or if the book returns to what it was pre-Azz. Do I think that's true of all new fans? Of course not.

    I really don't see how arguing who's a better fan or who IS a true fan of anything accomplishes something. Just learn to ignore people you don't like and engage the one's you do.

    C'mon, guys. Just because we appear as text here doesn't mean we're not people, too. Just be respectful of one another. Argue the SUBJECT, not the POSTER.

    According to what I heard, it's all about origins across the board.

    Now that would be an interesting read. I would love to see a WW origin Azz-style, just so we know what's true and what's not.

    You don't actually think Azzarello is going to give you the truth, do you? He likes the mystery and suspence, so I wouldn't be surprised if #0 just gives us more questions.
