The plotline that has been running in this relaunch since issue 1 comes to a conclusion in these issues. More Greek gods and goddesses take the stage, and for the most part writer Brian Azzarello’s versions work okay for me (now that Hades is off the scene). Wonder Woman continues to try to protect Zola, the young girl who is pregnant by Zeus, and the subject of a tug of war among the gods. The storyline takes us to Olympus at last, and battles both physical and mental ensue. Diana handles herself well. At the end there are hints of a new storyline going in an unusual direction (if I’m reading it right) that seems intriguing. I’m a little tired of gods and goddesses, so a change from that would be good.
Cliff Chiang’s art on both these issues is wonderful, perfectly suited to the character and the story. I know he can’t work fast enough to do all the issues, but what he does is worth waiting for.
