Book Read Wonder Woman Earth One Volume 2 – friendship–circle.co.uk
ERLIVING FUCK DID I JUST READEdit Okay to expand What is it that makes Wonder Woman Earth One so deeply objectionableThe supposed conceit of this trilogy is that it critically engages with Wonder Woman creator William Moulton Marston s ideas and reimagines them for the modern era This does not even happen in the slightestGrant Morrison s approach to deconstructing Golden Age Wonder Woman is to rip Marston s kookiest concepts directly from their 1940s context dragging them from an era in which they were radical and progressive into one in which they are backward and out of step with current feminist discourse and then to point smugly and declare See It doesn t hold upI mean my gosh what a searing insight Grant
mean to say that it t be feasible or realistic to replace all world governments with a global matriarchyMorrison s not interested in understanding Marston and his writing in the context of their time and environment He doesn t ook beyond the superficial weirdness of the Golden Age comics to unpack the ways in which the stories were radical and progressive for their time in telling children that women were men s euals and even superiors in every way in
YOU MEAN TO SAY THAT IT
telling young girls they could do anything they set their minds to in promoting a message young girls they could do anything they set their minds to in promoting a message When Not to Build love and friendship over violence and rehabilitation over retribution He doesn t bother to reimagine any of those ideas or sentiments through aens of modern society and feminismBecause Morrison doesn t really want to deconstruct Marston He just wants to write a story about kinky bondage warrior adies who speak in dactylic hexameter and fly vagina planes because that s what he considers subversive My god the smugness is palpableBeyond that all "the failings of the first volume persist The gender politics are ugly The s are irredeemable monsters Diana remains a "failings of the first volume persist The gender politics are ugly The s are irredeemable monsters Diana remains a unlikeable reactionary protagonist who spends most of the book farting around and wondering whether she should give up trying to teach people and just force them all to submit to mind control instead The story itself is half baked and poorly paced the result of Morrison trying to cram far too many ideas and characters into too few pagesThe reimagining of Doctor Psycho apparently conceived as a criticism for pickup artists and other online misogynist communities is so poorly executed that the text actually ends up giving a weird egitimacy to these communities vile rubbish pseudoscientific ideasYannick Pauette s art is still beautiful and he deserves props for his stunning page Hello Bravo ! - Activity Book layouts and fabulous wardrobe of costume designs for Diana But it remains uncomfortably male gazey with a tendency towards portraying women s bodies in bizarrely contorted positions with weird pornfacesOh and the series is still being edited by noted serial sexual harasser Eddie Berganza HASHTAG FEMINISM. Ts own way That is unless there are insidious forces at playContinuing the tradition of critically acclaimed EARTH ONE tales that challenge the status uo of the comics industry WONDER WOMAN EARTH ONE VOL 2 is Grant Morrison’satest genre rocking salvo With dynamic illustrations from the divine Yanick Pauette this original graphic novel is a classic in the making. .
review Wonder Woman Earth One Volume 2.
A free ove hippy guru then champion of justice I definitely would not recommend this book Wonder Woman Earth One is the worst comic book Grant Morrison s ever written no joke and I am a huge and hopeless fan of the guy The first volume was awful and the second one follows suit This entire series comes out of Morrison s affection for cheesy Golden Age comics coupled with an old man s understanding of modern society and issues such as feminism and gender euality The result is a fascinating train wreck and it s so clear that Morrison means well he just doesn t have a deep enough understanding of the issues he tries to cover and ends up writing a book that s offensive to pretty much every party involvedAnd I could at Still Side by Side least partially forgive all that if the main story was any good bu My thanks to NetGalley and DC EntertainmentDC Comics for an eARC copy of this to read and reviewIove Wonder Woman really Oriori No Uta love that character so I read this with high hopes They were dashed Badly SPOILERS beyond this point1 Nazis as bad guys The entire book world has been SATURATED with the whole Nazis as the bad guys thing From now on unless the book is STELLAR I am deducting one star whenever the Big Bad is the Nazis Stop already we get it Nazis bad everyone against them good Move on 2 The artist can t draw hands to save theirife Wonder Woman has the WORST manold Four Word Film Reviews ladytalon ha Why do people rate something that has not been released yet I m reduced to cut and pasting aine from my earlier review for WW s Earth One Vol 1 for the follow up edition A disappointment there was just too much weirdness and mood whiplashAbout the only good thing I can mention about Earth One Vol 2 is the colorful artwork by Mauette and Fairbairn There are Keep Calm, Alice Is Here Affirmations Workbook Positive Affirmations Workbook Includes lots of greatooking panels and pages in the book such as a collage where WW is gracing magazine covers Too bad the jerky disjointed story Crystal Decoder line just isn t on the sameevelActually You can find my review on my blog by clicking hereAfter what was certainly the most disappointing story by Grant Morrison yet we finally return to the provocative retelling of Wonder Woman s origin story in this second volume of DC Comics Earth One graphic novel ine up It s safe to say that the return of the same creative team
TO WORK ON THIS SECOND BOOKwork on this second book the trilogy is a reassuring thought as the sudden shift in artwork style wouldn t have played a positive role on what is already a controversial story arc for Diana Prince With the foundation of this story set in a discourse on feminism patriarchy and everything that shines bright in the news nowadays there s definitely a mystery behind Morrison s direction and where he wishes to bring this series in terms of story telling It s safe to say that Grant Morrison s take on the character is one that won t please the mass unanimously but it WHAT IN THE EV. Ilot Steve Trevor the Warrior finds herself in Man’s World And she is ready for anything that it may throw at herBut is the world ready for Wonder Woman An American Government fraught with dissession and conflicts foreign to Diana have deemed her a danger to society How will Wonder Woman carry out her mission of peace and ove in a world that can’t get out of ,
