    Marcus To is the penciller here with Andrew Dalhouse on the colours and Deron Bennett on the letters and as with the previous issue, Gene Ha is the cover artist here as well. To's pencils are great in this issue, especially in the first half with Wonder Woman's body language and her expressions. He shows Wonder Woman to be a restrained warrior, someone who can clamp down on her emotions well, and that's a subtle touch that I appreciated. The other stories have been about Wonder Womans physicality from the get go and that's not how this issue goes, so this was welcome indeed. The second half deals more with physical action, and is a bit mundane, but great nonetheless. The final page has some interesting things going on, especially in light of the story by Cohen and I'm not sure if it works a well as it is meant to, but I'm open to further exploration of that.

    Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #5 was a good start to this two part story.  Ivan Cohen's story may have been a bit heavy handed, but I liked the concept and the underlying message of tolerance.  Marcus To's art gets stronger as the issue progresses and I am curious to see the what and why of what's happening to Diana.  I've said it before, but stories like this are why this book is around in the first place.

    With the kind of light and fun approach that Sensation Comics has taken so far, this issue plays things a little more seriously while still trying to have a touch of that. Diana's faith in her gods has never really been worn on her sleeve or anything, especially when dealing with the majority of her arcs and stories. When she has events involving the gods directly, it's a different beast then and even still it's never been a hugely big part of her. Focusing on it a bit more here, with her not denying them but downplaying them, puts her in a bad spot and it's uncertain how much of it is just spiteful gods or her own psychological stage playing tricks on her. The book just leaves me feeling a little wary of it for this particular arc because of the tools it's playing with, especially in comparison to the other ones so far. Read Full Review
