Wonder Woman is back on Earth with an unlikely combination of gods and semigods, and soon finds herself setting out on a new quest to find another semigod that may be able to help her locate the missing child she’s searching for. Meanwhile, on Olympus, things continue to be strange, though the gods are as full of themselves as ever. The art by Tony Akins and Dan Green appeals to me more this time, so I found it a good read. I think Green is a good inking choice for Akins, his heavy outlines work well here.
In this title, writer Paul Levitz serves up a mix of Earth-bound politics and space-born action with a number of ongoing storylines amid the dozen or more characters featured. While the character relationships seem rather soap-opera-ish at times, it does keep me interested and coming back for more. This is one book where I don’t habve a favorite character but I like the group dynamic. The art is by Scott Kolins, using an open-line style that reminds me a bit of Moebius, though it’s not as deft as that. Not a bad approach, though, it has a fresh feel, and if details are a little distorted here and there, in this style that works okay.
Both books are recommended, but neither are good jumping-on issues.
