Another Wondy #34 post
In the other thread I've been mouthing off about the levels of fail I felt this issue contained. Having read the issue in full I stand by my dissatisfaction with its content -- and I'm truly saddened if not at all surprised over Gail's antithical attiude in and out of the book about everything concerning Diana's costume -- but I freely admit there is some good stuff there as well.
I like the jist of the sequence with Morrow, if not the wording. The idea that someone like Clark or even Bruce would regard Morrow as inhuman is stated clumbsily; rather I think it seems that he's trying to say that Diana sees him as something other than just his crimes or as a villain. Superman is the ideal you aspire to, Batman is what happens when you fail to meet the ideal, Wonder Woman is the one who will be there to help you meet it if you ask it of her. Not exactly elegantly put either but there you go.
I'm glad the gorillas survived -- even if they've really been drawn more like yeti than actual gorillas. I like that she has non-human supporting cast members.
I like the way Diana reacts to how Psycho is abusing Steel.
I like that at least the Amazons aren't completely sheep-like in accepting the Gargarean rule, even though it should never have happened in the first place.
