"Echidna" part 1 of 2! The streets of Gotham are dangerous at night, but not for Diana of Themyscira. When she sees Echidna, Mother of Monsters, attacking a local thug, she jumps into the fray-though she never expected to take Echidna's side!
The two part storyline here isn't one that really excites in a big way, but more something that gets the job done and shows a slightly different side of Diana. Location is important in what it brings out in a character, and with Gotham being as big a character as most of the people that populates the DC Universe, it definitely takes on that role here alongside Diana. I liked the idea of the guest appearances from Batgirl, Harley and eventually Batman, but something about it just felt like it didn't have the right tone, that the characters didn't have the right voice or flow to it, to make it feel like it was cemented in it. The interactions with Diana just felt kind of stilted, and because I'm left unsure of a "continuity" placement, that just exacerbates it. Read Full Review
