    I love Aquaman, but there's so much more going on in Wonder Woman's book, creatively. Johns is just doing what he normally does: worldbuild and scale up conflict. It's fun to read, but I personally don't think he's at all the writer Azzarello is. There's a real method to what Azzarello is doing, he's building a house; Johns is just setting up dominoes. Aquaman's book is cool, but I have to vote Wonder Woman on this one.

    Never liked Hobo-Aquaman. The new more regal Aquaman rocks. So i chose it but that might have been also because it was losing and i wanted a close match between these 2. Both are excellent titles that really proves that everyone in the original Justice League matters.

    I dropped Aquaman after issue 3. It was pretty to look at, but not so interesting to read.

    For all intents and purposes she's mopped up in this experiment. I hate Animal Man but I can "fathom" why people like it... You can't fathom why people like Greek Mythology? That's like saying you can't fathom why people like comic books.

    WW, looks better, better writer, has something to talk about in just about every issue...and, most importantly, doesn't smell like fish :)

    It isn't just greek mythology....It is greek mythology coupled with mediocre art and bad writing.

    People say nothing happens in Aquaman. Did they read issue 1 of WW?

    A blonde woman says Help...Some horses die, I think by harpies... That's pretty much it. Oh and a guy at the end laughed menacingly...

    yes I am surprised by this experiment..The conspiracy theorist in me thinks it's rigged.

    How exactly does Wonder Woman coming to save a "random blonde woman" and a stranger who teleported her- who turns out to be the god Hermes- and then discovering that the woman is pregnant with the child of Zeus and now Hera wants her dead count as nothing happening? You have a bizarre sense of deduction.
