Also, David E. Kelley, you should totally give Diana a hanger-on, maybe employee or girlfriend, who looks &/or dresses like this:

In a comment you may not be able to see, I said,

"Yeah, I could see Diana with Tasha Teranova (in space), Mala (in the past) or Io (in a self-destructive leading-her-on way), but I never really bought Diana/Artemis, as I've said. I could sorta buy Mike/Artemis, maybe Artemis/some Hellender, but not Di/Temi."

and anyone who knows the Byrne Wonder Woman is entitled to roll their eyes at one part of that.

Like I said, almost.

Oh yes, much whinging about how horrible Artemis: Requiem is.

Pffft.

OK, the art is horrifying. It's young Ed Benes riffing on Deodato riffing on Jim Lee, & it's ass.

I mean, asses. Lots & lots of asses. This is what happens when you show Brazilian artists the late Claremont/early post Claremont X-Men.

But the story, while utter crack, manages to be a mix of, "so bad it's good," & a wild ride that actually manages to justify Artemis being alive again. If you can figure that out, which took me a few years.

I genuinely love this comic, & I seriously love the character of Hank Jessup (the "sassy black friend").
