Brace Yourself

This is only the fourth issue of Sensation Comics and I think I'm in love.  I love Wonder Woman, sure, but I love the fact that I get to read stories like this issue each and every week.  I finally have a book that can take the place of the (unfortunately) canceled Adventures of Superman.  Like that book, Sensation Comics just makes me happy when I read it and this week is no exception. Jason Bischoff and David Williams give fans an origin story that is delightful in it's charm and classic in it's presentation.  If you have little ones who you want to get into comics and Wonder Woman in particular, give them this issue and watch them become fans.  Just save some time for yourself to read it as well.  Better yet, read and enjoy it together.

Like I said, this is the origin story of a Daughter becoming a Woman...a Wonder Woman.  It's told by her Mother, Hippolyta and Jason Bischoff does such a great job of showing the love between them.  Speaking of love, the minute you see little Diana, I promise you will fall in love with her.  I did.  David Williams makes her so damn cute.

Little girls (and boys for that matter) will love the way that little Diana tries to prove her worth to her Mother.  Early on, She tells Diana that to become a true hero, she must defeat the Queen.  Yes, she must beat her Mother.  What kid wouldn't love hearing that?  The rest of the issue deals with just that.  Failed attempt after failed attempt follow Diana as she grows older and stronger until the day she can't be held down.

Of course, fans of Wonder Woman will realize exactly what day that is and what and who are at stake.  In the end, Diana wins both the respect of the Amazon's and the right to represent them to the World.  I'd say she won the respect and love of her Mother, but she always had that.  The issue ends just as the life of "Wonder Woman" begins.

Bischoff and Williams really get Wonder Woman.  Without getting preachy or forcing the issue, they make us fall in love with our favorite Amazon Princess all over again.  Bravo guys.

Bits and Pieces:

Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #4 is a charming and cute origin story for all-ages.  It doesn't talk down to anyone, but instead shows the charm and wonder of the character.  I love stories like this and am so glad we get a weekly book to read them in. Highly recommended.
