Comic Book Review: Future State – Immortal Wonder Woman Issue 1 & 2

About:

The Undoing are coming. Long past the Age of Heroes, few of Diana Prince’s friends survive, and most of her sisters have passed as well. As an immortal goddess, this is her lot. But then, a threat appears that even the mighty Darkseid can’t handle-and it’s up to Wonder Woman to take on the battle! It’s big action and high fantasy at the end of time, courtesy of Eisner Award-winning cartoonist Becky Cloonan (By Chance or Providence, Gotham Academy) and her Doom Patrol co-writer Michael W. Conrad, with the popular artist Jen Bartel (Blackbird) making her interior art debut for DC. Then, peer into a closer future as the original champion of Themyscira strikes out on her own. Things have not been stable on Paradise Island for some time, and Nubia has found a new home in Man’s World. Now, she is tasked with protecting it from the dangers of the world of myths and magic. The writer of DC’s Nubia: Real One, L.L.

Review:

So back in January DC annouced this big DC universe reset or change (if you wanna call it) which is called Future State. Out of all the Future State titles the only one that struck my attention eas Immortal Wonder Woman mainly because out of all the Future State titles its the only one about an old superhero character that we know. Also the art work made me want to check it out.

So with that said, let’s dive into the story. The story as you’ve read in the about section, is about the Undoing the end of the universe (DC Universe) as we know it. Since wonder woman is a goddess she didn’t age and remained as she looks. So the story is mainly about paying tribute to Bruce Wayn where she goes to the bat cave to retrieve his belt. It also felt like she was trying to collect her strength to keep moving forward seeing her encounter with Swamp thing… everything and everyone is dying around her and she trying to find the strength to hold on and keep fighting. The comic really shows how lonely being all powerful and mighty could be. It also showed Different Layers to Diana. its surprising how they could fit so much meaning into two issues.

I really enjoyed the comic more than I thought I would even the Nubia arch was a fun read. I loved how they concluded how the current DC universe have ended and I really liked seeing Darkside and The Specter as the two I guess remaining villains in the universe. I also Loved how she dealt with them. So yeah this an amazing comic to read. defiantly worth picking up.
