Way more interested in hearing about Batman Earth One Volume 2...glad to hear they are returning to some of the stuff from Superman Earth One Volume 1, though, since volume 2 going off with Parasite instead of focusing on that original threat again felt like it was a definite tangent.

That is great to hear but I would still love to have more than one book every other year. I wish they would do one book a month meaning Jan. Superman, Feb. Batman, Mar. Wonder Woman, Apr. Green Lantern, etc. That's how I wish they would do this or put it into a monthly format. I just wish we got more books as promised when they first started.

Any cool bits of information? My monitor died recently and I'm borrowing a buddy's without sound so I can't watch the video.

They do. Those are called comic books.

And HFMF, JMS compares his Superman to Shakespeare's Richard III (Tyrell and the mysterious big bad) and he says that Superman III will be an end to this first arc and will close any mysteries raised in the first two. But he could keep going if he's asked.

Understood but I mean set in the Earth One world. While I like the New 52 world I would love to see more of the Earth One world and heroes on a more frequent base then what we see of them now.

Well Batman Earth One was 140 pages, so you're essentially getting six months of an Earth One comic book at one time.

Batman Earth One was a let down for me, Superman Earth One was epic and I even enjoyed Part 2 which wasn't as good as the first one but it was better than Batman Earth One. My problems with it are the usual for Geoff Johns much like Superman Secret Origin I felt the whole thing was a little rushed. There were aspects I liked, I loved what they did with Alfred, the fact his own tech was a little lacking so he had to get help and that he wasn't that good. Personally though the Cobblepot stuff was too much like the Joker killing the Wayne's in Batman '89 for me, but unlike that film it did make ore sense in that he needed them out if the way so he could become (or stay as - I forget) Mayor. So I don't know how I felt about that.

Here's how I'd rate the Earth One titles so far

Superman Earth One 9.5/10
Superman Earth One Vol. 2 8/10
Batman Earth One 7/10

Then they should come put every six months per title!

I love Earth One and Earth Two. I loved Batman being the last son of two families. The map of Gotham was cool too, very twisty turny. Definitely titles I will collect til completion.

Agreed although it did take some getting use to for me with Lisa being the Lana Lang of Earth One.

I don't think any of the titles have been anything great yet. Hopefully Batman II and Superman III deliver as well as the developing titles

Yeah I suppose she was. I wonder if he wanted to call her Lana but they wouldn't let him. Not to say Lana couldn't pop up in the series at somepoint. I just wish they'd get them out quicker.

Here Comes Wonder Woman Earth One By Grant Morrison And Yanick Paquette

Quite a while.


But here’s the first physical evidence. A double page splash from Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette’s upcoming Wonder Woman Earth One, joining the original graphic novel series Superman Earth One and Batman Earth One on the shelves. And hopefully plumping up a Wonder Woman entry in next year’s Essential DC catalogue…


Here’s what we might be looking forward to…

Quote:
So Marston had all these ideas and it was very deep, there was a book by him which was hidden in the DC Comics vaults because they didn’t really want anyone to see it, and a friend of mine at DC sneaked it out for me one time. And it’s this thing, and honestly you can’t read it, it’s deranged, it’s like the guys just done mescaline or something, talking about his sexual theories.

…But then Marston died, and that energy left the strip, it just disappeared… when you took the sex out of Wonder Woman, the thing went flat. And the sales died immediately after Marston himself died and never ever recovered.

… I think I’ve found a way, but I’m not gonna tell you what I’ve done because hopefully the Wonder Woman series will be out next year sometime or thereabouts. But I think I’ve found a way to get all that back in again but it took a lot of reading. This has been the hardest project I’ve ever done.

That Superman’s meant to be this ultimate expression of masculinity and he still gets to be sexual, while Wonder Woman’s meant to be the ultimate expression of womanhood and yet she isn’t allowed anything to do with sex.
Expect solicitations any day now.

I'm up for it. I like that he's going back to the Marston roots with WW (this is a very underrated and undermined time of content, much like a lot of the GA material for a lot of characters). Not sure how I feel about the whole war of the sexes stuff he's talking about, but I get where he's pulling it from.

Wonder Woman graphic novel: Grant Morrison takes on the feminist icon
Quote:
Originally Posted by Noelene Clark
Wonder Woman is getting a modern makeover in an upcoming graphic novel by award-winning comic writer Grant Morrison and artist Yanick Paquette. “Wonder Woman: Earth One” reimagines the Amazon warrior’s mythic origin in a modern-day setting. The graphic novel follows J. Michael Straczynski’s “Superman: Earth One” and Geoff Johns’ “Batman: Earth One.”

For Morrison, who is nearing the end of his successful run with “Batman Incorporated” (issue No. 13 is due out July 24), writing a Wonder Woman book represented a chance to round out the trinity. Morrison has already written extensive Superman and Batman stories, but Wonder Woman has always been a periphery character in his work. Paquette (“Ultimate X-Men,” “Swamp Thing”) drew a handful of “Wonder Woman” books in the late 1990s.

The 120-page “Wonder Woman: Earth One” comes at a time when the lasso-wielding heroine appears to be on the brink of a popularity resurgence. The CW is developing a Wonder Woman television show, and many fans are pushing for a big-screen feature based on the Amazon.

Hero Complex chatted with Morrison about the character’s origins, previous Wonder Woman iterations, and his plans for the superheroine in “Wonder Woman: Earth One.”
