    But at least Azzarello has no major creative differences with Johns in how they write the character and intergrate her in the wider world.

    Oh wait...
    I don't think the differences between Azz and Johns’ development of Wonder Woman will be too much of a problem. In all likelihood Azz will be allowed to finish his run and then all the character work he's done on Diana will be tossed out the window in favour of Johns’ version.

    I hate Azz's version of Wonder Woman
    I have not bought a WW comic for over a year
    I am really hoping that a new writer will undue what Azz has done.
    I really want to start buying her book again.
    but that's me, different strokes

    I hear you batGRRRl4ever. No doubt its because we are old and dont understand what is edgy and cool.

    Fair enough. But I really don't think you'll like Johns Wonder Woman either, unless your idea of a good WW is a socially inept moron who goes into rages, hacks up her team mates and happily regales you with tales about how she cuts peoples heads off. She's a charming lady.

    I'm assumng that when she starts slicing up Atlanteans she'll bath in their blood and eat their hearts to gain their courage.

    I really hope you read JL to know what you're getting as a replacement.

    In fairness to JJ, is he saying John's version is better? Or just that he dislikes Azzarello's. Which, after all, the JL WW is loosely based on.

    That may be, but if we end up with Johns' version and he hates it even more?

    Very loosely. What do they have in common? Apart from name and looks.

    In what sense do you feel the JL Wonder Woman is loosely based on Azzarello's version?
    'The marquis. Well, you know, to be honest, he seems a little bit dodgy to me.'
    'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."

    Guess its all win for me. I like both versions. Prefer a meshing of the two but whatever I guess.

    They have mentioned several times she is apparently the daughter of Zeus. They also have put in bits from her own book with her mother being turned to clay and the Amazons anti-male sentiments.

    On the other hand, I dont think anyone who aread Azzarello's run for any length of time would say that his his Wonder Woman would try to hack up a companion with a sword. I would say she would also be unlikely to do the kind of revenge killing we saw John's WW attempt in JL #12.

    So while Johns has clearly taken elements of the story that Azzarello is writing, he writes the character very differently. Hence, "loosely based".
