And Then I Read: WONDER WOMAN #1

The beginning of an interesting new approach, in this comic. Not only new for the character, but a new storytelling device. This issue follows Wonder Woman of today, continuing from the Rebirth one-shot. Next issue will be about Wonder Woman’s first year in man’s world. Both stories will continue in alternate issues.

Here’ Diana is in the African jungle on a mission that gradually becomes clear. She’s searching for someone that she thinks can help her with a serious problem. Someone who doesn’t want to be found, and sends fierce beasts and warriors to stop Diana. Meanwhile, a new version of Etta is working a communications command in touch with Steve Trevor, also in Africa on a secret mission. Both of them are wondering what Wonder Woman is doing in the same arena, but they have no answers. Neither has talked to her in a while.

Good set up, lots of action. The writing by Greg Rucka has me wanting more. The art by Liam Sharp is rich and delicious. Waiting to see what the other story line is like, but so far I’m on board.
