Stupid Questions #5: Wonder Woman 9 Edition

1. Is this supposed to follow directly from Amazons Attack #1? If so, why doesn't Diana meet "mom" in the same place?

2. The Book was labeled "Part Four." Other than WW#8 and AA#1, what was Part Three?

3. Everyman was the title character of a Middle Ages play. Willie Loman was a kind of everyman- character is Death of a Salesman, but naming oneself Everyman shouldn't really open yourself up to lots of Willie Loman jokes, should it?

4. How did Hippolyte and a dozen Amazons end up on the roof with Circe and Diana without anyone noticing?

5. Does Wonder Woman doubt that Hippolyte is her mother because she is warlike, or because she is so gullible?

6. Did Nemesis really think that he could lock up a shape-shifter the way he did? Shouldn't he know better?

7. How come the best parts of this issue were the parts without Diana in them? Is this book turning into (wonder-woman-presents) NEMESIS!!! ?

To start- totally heart your blog- stumbled upon it while scouting all things amazon a while ago! Your issue 9 questions are great- and echo many of mine- here's another: Why is the recently solicited cover to issue 12 merely lifted from a panel in issue 9?!

Hi Angel.

Thanks. I hadn't noticed the double-use of the panel, but I guess, why not? I support recycling and have my own compost pile. Why not re-cycle artwork as well?

1) Because Idleson was sleeping on the job again.

2) Because Idleson was sleeping on the job again.

3) Umm...

4) Because Idleson was sleeping on the job again.

5) Diana is in denial, because being gullible and warlike is in character for Hippolyta. Unfortunately, being in denial is out of character for Diana, so once again, Idleson was sleeping on the job.

6) Yes, he should. Idleson was sleeping on the job again.

7) Because Nemesis kicks ass and Piccoult can't write Diana.

Hi Ragnell,

Thanks for the insights. That followed my line of reasoning pretty closely.

I was considering a follow-up post after "Amazons Attack #2," but I decided that I didn't even know enough to know what I didn't know. I mean, when Donna Troy comes to Hippolyta to preach peace, and Hippolyta says she will consider after she talks to Diana -- haven't they met like two or three times already? Wasn't it the cliff hanger from both WW#8 and AA#1?

And with Circe dead (or dead-ish, or whatever), I'm not sure who keeps casting the spell that makes Wonder Woman and her mom keep forgetting that they have met each other.
