    Default Should I pick up the New 52 Wonder Woman trades? :)

    Hello so I'm wondering if I should pick up the new Wonder Woman series in trades? Vol 2 is coming out in a couple months and it looks interesting just want to hear your guys thoughts on it, thanks!

    While trying not to oversimplify or be too divisive, I will say that if you loved the previous version of Wonder Woman, you might not enjoy the New 52 book. If you weren't overly attached to the old Diana or if you have an open mind, you should definitely check it out. Azzarello has made a lot of fairly significant changes to her story, and while I happen to think they work great and the book is brilliant, many WW fans have serious misgivings about it. I for one could not recommend it highly enough.

    Maybe if you´re not a hardcore Wonder Woman fan, it will work. I like the George Pérez era but haven´t really followed through the years. I like Byrne´s run and Messner-Loebs/ Deodato. I don´t have the continuity on top of my head, so I don´t realize where changes are being made. The current run is one of my favorite titles and can´t wait to read what is coming this month, since I love Kirby´s legacy. My point is, if you are willing to give some creative license, go ahead and read it. It may even compell you to read some mythologic stuff (as it did me). I have been a comic collector for over 30 years and had never read so many DC titles like I am now. There´s some great stuff.

    Yes, pick it up. I'd say this is one of the few times Wonder Woman has been so interesting.

    Actually, until she went 'god-mode', she was getting her butt handed to her by the olympians.

    I get the impression you're a new fan, so yeah, you'll probably love it.

    I think it's a lot better than the Perez version. Marston is still the best but I would place this run right after his.

    Maybe I'm a snob when it comes to DC Trades but they seem so cheaply made I get the hardcover or the individual issues.

    Funny, I would have said it was the exact opposite.

    If you like WW then pick it up. It's a really great read, and the trade is nicey put together. Volume one looks pretty darn good on my shelf and I'm sure it will on yours too.

    If you haven't gotten into WW before and you love mythology, then this sonds up your alley. Once you accept the book for what it is, Azz and Chiang are damn good at what they're doing with it.

    I think you'll find the view on the book on these boards to be a bit divided. If you are looking for a flatout superhero book it probably isn't for you, personally I have enjoyed it and consider it to be one of the top 3 books released by DC since the new 52 began.

    Yeah, in that case this should be right up your alley.
