And Then I Read: WONDER WOMAN 8

Wonder Woman goes to Hell, guns blazing! Well, not exactly, the cover notwithstanding. She does go to Hell to confront Hades and attempt to rescue the girl Zola, and she does bring guns. Quite unusual ones, and as writer Brian Azzarello knows, if you show a gun, you must use it. I’m enjoying this title again in general, though the depiction of Hades I still find quite silly, and something that keeps me from taking the character seriously. But the rest works well, and Hell itself in this book is quite different than you might expect in ways I like.

The art by Cliff Chiang continues to be completely right, perfect and charming. I can’t think of another artist I’d want to see on this book.
