I'm not entirely sure what I think about Blue Amazon, other than that I didn't like it. It's an interesting take on an alternate reality... I think. Ultimately, the artwork and storytelling is so muddled (not to mention short on space) that I never really got a firm grasp on exactly what this world was like. The artwork reminded me, more than anything, of some of the more excessive panels from Batman: Arkham Asylum. It really did nothing for me.

Now, Diana herself... Oh, dear. When I think of the

Concept: Duits expressionisme. Deel één is een vertaling van Fritz Lang’s Metropolis. Deel twee is een mashup van Das Kabinet des Dr Caligari en Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens.

In deel drie, met inspiratie van Der blauwe Engel en Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler, blijkt Diana, de Blauwe Amazone, van de “Hemel” afkomstig te zijn, vanwaar Metropolis even later aangevallen wordt. Diana wordt Wonder Woman, de slechteriken uit de Hemel worden verstaan, alles is weer peis en vree, en we weten op het ein

I totally dug the artwork. Nosferatu (Batman) and Cheetah were brilliant. The story itself was interesting.

However all the other aspects of the story, su ...more

The art in The Blue Amazon is super cool. It's sort of got the whimsicalness of Skottie Young and the dark, deranged feel of Dave McKean at the same time. The art for Cheetah and Wonder Woman was my favorite; it reminded me of a lot of different takes of the Hindu goddess Kali. Cheetah was more the terrifying, out-of-control, bloodthirsty Kali, and Wonder Woman was the more benevolent/domesticated but still crazy powerful Kali. The world that The Blue Amazon takes place in is very imaginative. I ...more
