‘Wonder Woman #51’ (review)

Written by Steve Orlando
Illustrated by Laura Braga
Published by DC Comics

 

I haven’t been reading this title since Greg Rucka left. I was looking forward to picking it up and seeing where we are at. I should probably have stayed away as this may be the most boring comic book I have ever read. I got the point of the story early on and then it was cliche after cliche with very little action.

That’s a shame because I actually really like the writing of Steve Orlando. This somehow missed the mark for me.

The title of the story is “The Fifty Second Visit.” It focuses on Diana visiting the villain known as Mayfly over the course of a couple of years.

The issue shows the initial capture. Then it jumps ahead each time to show each visit by Diana.

The theme I guess is how these two characters grow over time and how their relationship progresses with each other.

The book didn’t draw me in. The dramatic scenes tried too hard and the little action we get is forced and really meant nothing. It felt like it dragged on forever for me. When it ended, I finally breathed out a sigh of relief.
They tried here and that’s be commended. It just didn’t work. I disliked the art too, as it felt stiff and lifeless. Not everything works and I appreciate them putting themselves out there. I just wish it was better.

RATING: C-
