I find this to be the case with many of the early '70s letter columns from DC, for whatever reason. They might have been trying to imitate Stan Lee's Soapbox jive, but they came off badly and not very hip in the process. By the time I started buying comics actively during the mid-'70s, however, that attitude disappeared from the letter columnsIn the lettercolumn, someone writes in and complains about them ditching the I-Ching era. The writer then gives them props for at least trying to restore Diana to her powered roots. Assistant editor Allan Asherman is back and he goes off on a pretty biting tirade, ripping this person up one side and down the other for logic flaws and for daring to challenge the magnificence of Kanigher's vision. It's really unnecessary. I don't mind it in theory when editors get into it with fans in the lettercolumn, but what I don't like is when they get defensive. Sekowsky went overboard in trashing the previous version of Wonder Woman and Asherman and Kanigher do the same thing in retribution. They all end up looking like petty jerks. Sekwosky at least leavened his by including real criticisms from fans, but Asherman just uses this letter as a straw man to rant at. It's not cool at all.
No defense of this, either. The Amazons return should have been an obvious area to clear up. That it wasn't was really negligence on DC's part.Also, this fan asks about the Amazons suddenly returning from the other dimension with no explanation after they supposedly went there because thy had to recharge their magic. I have been wondering about this myself. Asherman says that since they have mastered time travel, they might have just stayed there for any amount of time before coming back to the present; who knows?! This is another major cop-out. It's ridiculous.
