I haven’t read WONDER WOMAN since Greg Rucka left as writer last year, but I like James Robinson’s writing too, the art is appealing, and this new story arc seems a good place to jump on again.
Diana’s friend Dr. Barbara Minerva has been changed permanently to her alter-ego The Cheetah by Veronica Cale, who now learns that Cheetah has escaped the place where Diana had put her. She recaptures Cheetah to resume experiments (shades of Dr. Moreau), but Cheetah escapes from her too, babbling of some new Dark Gods that are coming, and that she must prepare for. When Wonder Woman appears on the scene, she finds she can’t reason with Cheetah, and perhaps catches a glimpse of these new gods. Meanwhile, a man named Jason in heroic armor has broken into a Kobra research base in Montenegro to free his father, and a surprise attacker, also obsessed with the new Dark Gods, faces Wonder Woman on the final page.
Nicely done by all, the story is intriguing, and I will read on. Recommended.
