    Each comic in the showcase has a color palette and style which suits the story, obviously, but the pencils of Goodhart and the colors of Peter really bring out the ambiance of the Italian setting and in Zatanna's showmanship. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman is investigating an incident at a mountain in Montana when her powers are stripped from her and she is at the mercy of a group of gun-wielding criminals. When a stray bullet strikes a young girl, Diana must bring her on a dangerous journey up the mountain to end the bigger threat before she can get her the help she needs. As the young girl begins to fade and lose hope, Diana tells her a story of perseverance that will hopefully keep the girl alive and fighting. A good story with an awesome message of both hope and perseverance in the face of struggle. Read Full Review
