I love the art prints. I love the ring, the earrings, the bracelet, and such… It’s all good. Except for that necklace. It’s overpowering, huge, and heavy to wear. I think I would have liked a Flash necklace instead. Or even a necklace with all the symbols for the heroes on it but there are two Batman items (not sorry to have these!) and no Flash item? Kinda odd.
It did renew my excitement to see the movie though!
Well, what can I say? It’s all Wonder Woman stuff. It can’t help but be awesome.
If I were to be picky, I would have liked more of a gauntlet style bracelet or a ring/bracelet combo like this to look like the famous lasso. Picture it: a gold (colored) ‘W’ ring with a rope like chain connected to a bracelet that says ‘Fearless’ on it? That would be epic…
Overall, the value of the Kal-Elle boxes is consistently good. So far, I have never been completely disappointed with anything I’ve received. Absolutely worth every penny.
In this origin story, Diana is the spoiled child of the Queen of the Amazons; Hippolyta. Her every whim and selfish desire is indulged and excused until it finally comes to result not only in the injury and disfigurement of her sisters but actually leads to some of them dying! Vowing to atone, Princess Diana ventures off their island to discover what it means to be a true Amazon.
As I was reading, I thought I would hate this book because they made Diana such an egotistical, spoiled, selfish person. And, let’s face it, Diana is pretty damn unlikable and jaw droppingly stupid here. But giving it more thought, it’s more interesting than her being perfect and honorable from the first breath she takes. I do wonder if there is anything Diana can do to make up for what she did but I can get behind a redemption story.
The art calls back to classic mythical style and is just a pleasure to look at. Despite not liking Diana, I went back through the book just to look at the beautiful work. I returned for the art but found young Diana so unpleasant, I wouldn’t want to experience her character though repeated readings. I give this an overall 4 out of 5.
I was a little leery of this crate, to be honest. I was concerned it would be pandering nonsense but I actually love all this stuff!
DC Bombshell figure
Star Trek purse
Fangirls coloring book (it also came with tiny pencils)
Marvel women dress
And yes, those are tiny tribbles on the purse! Tiny tribbles!! I’m in love with it. The dress is fantastic and fits like a dream, the figure is cute, and if you’ve been on my Instagram lately, I have been practicing my coloring with coloring books so it’s just an all around useful and fun box. I’m so glad I got this!
This graphic novel puts DC’s heroines in a WWII setting. It is really creative to see how the creators fit the modern heroes in this setting; Batgirl as a League of Their Own like ball player, Kara as a member of the Soviet pilots The Night Witches, Zatanna working as a stage magician in a club owned by Joker’s Daughter; all really cool roles executed in believable ways. I don’t wanna give too much away plot wise so I don’t ruin the discoveries you’ll fine while reading.
The art is beautiful and all in all, it’s just a damn cool story! It was fun to see my favorite heroes and villains in different roles and in a wartime setting where super powers can make the stakes even higher. Espionage, air fights, seedy bars; just fantastic. I give it a solid 4.9 because seeing Joker’s Daughter made me roll my eyes for a second there (very Rule 63) but the presence of Constantine made it all worth it.
