review Ù PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook º Grant Morrison Grant Morrison º 4 Summary Wonder Woman Earth One Volume 2 Read & Download Ì 104 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 love in a world that can’t get out of i. 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 least partially forgive all that if the main story was any good but it just isn t some Nick Cave lookalike tries to mind control Diana meanwhile a chesty nazi lady is up to some chesty nazi lady shenanigans over at Themyscira There s zero character development here just like in volume 1 and zero tension and excitement in the story Once again Grant Morrison proves to be entirely unable to tell an interesting Wonder Woman story and that s fine considering he has such a deep understanding of pretty much every other DC character Just let it go Grant Diana is just not for youYanick Pauette s artwork keeps being porny as hell and nullifies this book s every pathetic attempt at being feminist He never misses a chance to draw his women in lusty suggestive poses with half opened mouths and horny smiles doesn t matter if the character is playing a sport fighting a bad guy or just walking down the street There are several naked shots of Hippolyta taking a sexy shower as well as numerous panels devoted entirely to Diana s butt and breastsOverall the second volume of Morrison s Wonder Woman Earth One is just as bad as the first one In our day and age when we have so many other great Wonder Woman stories from thoughtful and deep Rebirth run by Greg Rucka to a daring and audacious one by Brian Azzarello to classical and down to earth stories from Jill Thompson and Renae De Liz I just don t see the value in Morrison s take on the character If anything it comes off as degrading and ill advised Then again sometimes it feels like the entire Earth One line was created for the most degrading and ill advised takes on otherwise great characters

I m reduced to cut and pasting a line 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 lots of great looking panels and pages in the book such as a collage where WW is gracing magazine covers Too bad the jerky disjointed story line just isn t on the same levelActually there was a scene that made me laugh Late in the story after Dr Psycho of course he s a villain with that name right has improperly influenced Wonder Woman s thoughts WW is speaking at an outdoor Women Power assembly in Washington DC After being introduced by a Gloria Steinem lookalike though she s not identified as such our title character launches into an unexpectedly harsh anarchic speech Two reaction shots Steinem looks shocked and a police officer performing crowd control glances around nervously while women cheer are priceless

WHAT IN THE EVERLIVING 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 You mean to say that it wouldn 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 look 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 telling young girls they could do anything they set their minds to in promoting a message of love and friendship over violence and rehabilitation over retribution He doesn t bother to reimagine any of those ideas or sentiments through a lens of modern society and feminismBecause Morrison doesn t really want to deconstruct Marston He just wants to write a story about kinky bondage warrior ladies 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 deeply 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 legitimacy to these communities vile rubbish pseudoscientific ideasYannick Pauette s art is still beautiful and he deserves props for his stunning page 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
