Wonder Woman 600!

Wonder Woman 600 comes out tomorrow! And dammit, I'm exited. It looks like a real game-changer (finally) for our Amazon princess, from new writer J. Michael Straczynski. And before you all have heart attacks, remember...it's JUST A STORY. I'm sure things won't last this way forever...nothing in comics ever does. Frankly, I'm just hoping for something that turns the whole book on it's head. Ever since the book got rebooted back to #1 after Infinite Crisis, the stories have ranged from kinda mediocre to just plain abyssal. I think this kind of radical change is needed.

Here's some articles/pictures of the story and Diana's NEW COSTUME...but be warned, there's major MAJOR spoilers in both articles:

iiii dunno about that costume. it's better than the old 80s outfit that she wore when artemis was wonder woman, but it still reminds me of it....
too much unnecessary detail, too. like in her belt.

maybe i am just being super picky.
i'll say this, though: the design concept art doesn't pull it off quite as well as the actual comic art examples they had. it may work.

I'm not sure I'm a fan of the costume, either. It reminds me too much of Cassie's first Wonder Girl outfit.

I've said this elsewhere, so here is my piece:

I really can't get behind this.

Yes, it's technically good that the writers are acknowledging that it's ridiculous for a superhero to fight crime in a bathing suit...

But it's no more ridiculous than Superman wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants, or Robin wearing the brightest fucking costume ever. (Look, I know the Robin I'm thinking of came from circus folk, but that doesn't excuse him from wearing situationally-appropriate garb).

Even if you ignore the fact that it's the woman superhero that is the only one who is subject to a costume change, she's still wearing fucking heels. A battle skirt is more practical than heels.
