You ask for the three top statements by Azz about Wonder Woman herself. I don't know about "top," but here are three--or more than three, depending on how you count. Each includes different pieces of an interview,but they're not exactly in context, but you can see the links for full context.
1. "I liked the Marston stuff a lot. Yeah, I liked that stuff. I think that stuff's fun....Wonder Woman's a myth, just like the gods, and I put her in the same boat as Superman or Batman....I'm much more concerned with what goes on behind her eyes than what goes on, what goes on her thighs....There's conflict. She's not perfect, and she knows ....There are things about that character that make her unique from other characters that need to be pushed to the forefront. I think a lot of what makes her unique is like I said, it's behind her eyes. That's what she needs."
2."Q: What have you learned about Wonder Woman that you maybe didn't know before that surprised you?
Azzarello: I didn't know she was capable of telling jokes. And she is. She has a good sense of humor. It's dry, very dry. It's good.
Q:Do you picture anyone in your mind when you're writing Wonder Woman?
Azzarello: My mom. My mom is my Wonder Woman."
(People may laugh at this one, but I'm guessing that if he's willing to associate his mother with Wonder Woman, he sees some good in the character)
"Q: You’ve written a lot of complex characters in 100 Bullets and Loveless. How do you think Diana compares to your previous female characters?
BA: Oh boy, man. She has a much more identifiable moral code, ’cause a lot of the women I’ve written have been—sure they’re strong, but they’ve also been morally compromised in some way. Ruth in Loveless, she was a murderer. Dizzy [in 100 Bullets] was tortured. Wonder Woman’s not tortured. I think Wonder Woman’s very strong and very confident in who she is, a sort of calmness and a sense of humor that I think has been lacking from that character for a while."
(Yes, I realize that people may differ about whether calmness and sense of humor has been lack "for awhile, but at least he's recognizing that those fine qualities were there in the first place, right?)
Javier, you felt that those who have issues with the run would be more likely to cut Azz some slack if they saw some positive things he had said about the character. So, do you think any of those help?
