Weakest of the three collected editions
Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman Vol. 3 - Various

I'm giving it three stories for the Cheetah story because that focus on the damage done to non-superheros and highlights the difference between Wonder Woman and Batman. I also enjoyed the stories with Poison Ivy and Superman. First story gets bonus points for the woman in charge.

Best of the Three Collected
Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman Vol. 2 - Ryan Benjamin,James Tynion, Noelle Stevenson

Of the three Sensation Comics Collections I have read, this is my favorite. It is also the most feminist.

 

There are two stories where Wonder Woman is not a central character - one about a woman army officer and another about two sisters. Both those stories feature girls and women of color.  Both stories are about the power of story telling and family - be it a sister or your brothers in arms.  They are also wonderful because the stories are not the standard woman sticks it to the men who under estimated her crap storylines.  

 

The story about a young musican coming into adulthood is also well done - in particular WW's line about the lasso and mansplaining. However, what I really enjoyed about that story is the look at a young teen star growing adulthood, what she wants and what those parents of her fans want her to be.   

 

Many of the stories feature minority characters - including one that takes place on Venus which also is about STEM and women in a predominately male job.  

 

I enjoyed the Lois Lane and WW story as well. I don't usually like Lois, but in that story she rocked. It was awesome seeing the two of them as friends.

Wonder Woman and Catwoman - Sign me up
Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman Vol. 1 - Gail Simone,Ethan Van Sciver

So a bit of a mixed bag, though overall the stories are good and so is the artwork. 

The book starts with "Gothamazon" by Simone where Wonder Woman steps in to help Gotham while the Bats clan, with the exceptation of Oracle, are down for the count. The story illustrates, quite well, the differences between Batman and Wonder Woman. There are also some nice touches of humor. The second story "Defender of Truth" by Amanda Diebert and the fifth, "Bullets and Bracelets" by Sean Williams are, perhaps, a bit too heavy on the moral of the story, but who cares? They are enjoyable stories.

The two stories "Brace Yourself" and "Taketh Away" touch on some of the same issues - though "Brace Yourself" as far more humor; Jason Bischoff's stories of Diana vs Mom were great. Cohen's "Taketh" actually highlights the expecetions that women are forced to handle on a daily basis, including treatment when they decline an invitation as well as the expectation to be beautiful all the time.

The most problematic story is "No Chains Can Hold Her" and while it references the early days of comics and seems tongue in cheek, it falls completely flat. As does "Ghosts and Gods". For whatever reason the story doesn't quite work.

"The Attack of the 50 Foot Wonder Woman" and "Dig for Fire" are pretty good adventure stories, though one is light in tone than the other.

My favorite is "Morning Coffee" by Ollie Masters which involves Wonder Woman hunting down Catwoman. It's just wonderful.

Slave to Sensation
Slave to Sensation - Nalini Singh,Angela Dawe Audio Review: Oct. 2017: I've previously read Slave to Sensation several times. I decided to give the audio version a try. I enjoyed the audio. It was different, entertaining, and gripping. I found myself being pulled in and not realizing how far along I was until I needed to stop. My only complaint/issue is with the male voices. I had trouble getting into them. They didn't sound right to me, but other then that, I loved Slave to Sensation. I'm going to grab the next audio in the Psy-Changeling series.

Audo Rating: 4 Stars

Reading Review: Sept. 2013: Loved It! Slave to Sensation drew me in and never let go. I could not put the book down. I liked how the author introduced us to the world she created and really enjoyed the characters. I can’t wait to read on in this series. I also enjoyed how throughout the book we learn more and more about the different races (Psy’s & Changeling’s). It was a great read!

The best start to one of the best PNR/UF series...ever!
Slave to Sensation - Nalini Singh

This is 1 of my 2 most favorite fantasy romance series EVER! It's romance, which means happy ending...which is why I read the genre, but the world-building is just as good as anything in the non-romance fantasy/sci-fi genre. Nalini Singh is truly an amazing writer and one I read to learn from just as much as I read for the enjoyment.

 

Slave to Sensation is book 1 in the Psy/Changling series. It features cat shifter alpha, Lucas Hunter, and cardinal psy, Sasha Duncan. I loved that it wasn't inst-love right from the beginning. The build up was so sensual as Sasha slowly gives in to her emotions and Lucas slowly sees that the Psy CAN feel something. The scene with the cub and Sasha's boot will always be one of my favorites. Both characters are complex and strong which makes for a very satisfying love story. Add in the search for a serial killer and you can't help but devour every word.

 

Highly recommended.
