And Then I Read: WONDER WOMAN #58

Image © DC Comics. Written by G. Willow Wilson, art by Cary Nord & Mick Gray, colors by Romulo Fajardo Jr., letters by Pat Brosseau, cover by Terry & Rachel Dodson.

Wonder Woman is beginning a new arc with a new creative team, so I’m giving it a try. The story begins on Themyscira as Queen Hippolyta and Philippus visit a deep prison where Ares, God of War, is being held, along with Grail, a warrior woman. As you might guess, Ares has an escape plan. Back in Virginia, Diana is alerted by Etta that Steve Trevor is missing, possibly captured on a mission to Durovnia, which has a treaty with the U.S. It also has some apparent refugees from Olympus, and Diana soon finds Ares there as well.

The art by Nord and Gray is appealing, simpler than the average DCU hero book, but charming and expressive. The story is fairly predictable so far, but we’ll see where it goes. Recommended.
