"... Act, that each tomorrow find us farther than today."
I can very well understand others wanting that interpersonal characterization. If it was added, sure we get some more flavour to Diana's life...but it isn't there...ad I do not miss it and I do not think that the story suffers for its lack thereof, imo. The story is just as entertaining and engrossing without it.
Personally, I am too caught up in how the story is progressing between Diana and Hades and Zola and wot the other Gods are planning to be overly concerned by whether or not she has a social life that involves mere humans.
As with Rob's post...Diana likes tomatoes. If on their wedding night Hades goes to kiss her (right after she just ate a plate full of sun-ripened heirlooms) and dies because he is allergic...well...that would be adding to the story. Otherwise, it is just a bit of extraneous information that is in and of itself interesting but in essence, unimportant. (Yes, I just equated liking tomatoes with having a social life).
(and let me go on record as saying that I do believe she has an active social life...it's just that her current conflicts are taking precedence and all of her focus).
Sun and Moon
Also yes, there are 'ethnic' gods (that is non-Greek or non-Greek looking) dieties in the Hellenistic pantheon. Aries for certain, probably Hephaestus.
Looks at cover... I do not know why, but I immediately felt this would happen right from Apollo's introduction. Maybe it is because Chiang said he was a smooth criminal.
Of course covers can be misleading. I hope this one is not. Do not get me wrong, I am totally Team Steve. But it is okay with me if a few more attractive men join the I love Diana club.
Another great cover. Of course I don't expect this to be an actual panel in the issue... after all, she does seem to be flying I love the idea that Wonder Woman is placed in the masculine role while Apollo is bent back being kissed. I'd imagined if they were standing on the ground, he'd have one foot raised as she lays one on him. Maybe she's stopping a war with love?
Strange you call that Wonder Woman but not this.
