Weary of the unfinished, uncommitted, mutable feel of Bryan Azzarello's Wonder Woman.
Neither Zola or Lennox have been given last names (surnames) and it's already Issue #14, with #15 on the way!
Diana's 'place' in London looks an awful lot like a hotel suite, though it could be a flat ..or a condo? It should be clear where in Hades she is, from one issue to the next! We know where Batman and Superman live? Where does Diana actually live? This is SO basic!
What does Wonder Woman do for a living? What's her trade? Perhaps, we shouldn't ask, considering her taste in clothes, boots and ropes.
Zola and Lennox are still around, but, I don't feel so certain that they are the supporting cast. I don't get the impression that this comic truly has a regular supporting cast.
What exactly is Lennox?! Is he Great Brittain's retired Captain America? I imagine that Lennox will, at some point, go back to where ever he's from and settle into being a guest character, as super-powered siblings or counterparts tend to do (Supergirl, Batgirl, etc), ..because he simply doesn't feel like a regular. Honestly, I don't want to read a WW comic, with her brother in every other issue, throwing tanks at people!
Zola feels like Etta's successor, but also seems so incomplete! Does Zola have a family or a husband, serving in the US military? How does she run a farm all by herself, or does she? Who's running her farm now, while she's running around with Wondy? What's her deal? Of all the new characters, Zola, because she has SO much potential and because I like her SO much, is the most infuriating of all to me ..and the biggest disappointment.
Bryan Azzarello is writing the Wonder Woman comic, like a newspaper strip, and it isn't. The very basic setting or settings for this comic series seem unfinished, and I don't get the impression that Mr. Azzarello is interested in filling in the blanks -again, just the basic stuff- anytime soon. How long are we to wait for him to get around to this stuff? It doesn't feel to me that Mr. Azzarello is entirely committed to writing this comic, ..beyond telling a clever, but sluggishly slow, story.
Fans know that a good comic book is more than a story. Maybe, the editors need to jump in and make some demands here. Isn't that what they're paid for for? More sleep-at-the-wheel editing on Wonder Woman -should we be surprised?
And that makes it very hard to commit to buying it.
