"Game of the Gods" part 1! Wonder Woman has vanished without a trace. Bereft of her memories, deprived of her gods-given abilities, and without her familiar costume, lasso and bracelets, Diana must fight off a horde of monstrous foes and find her way back to Earth.

    On one hand it is nice to see Walt Simonson taking the time to acknowledge what has gone on in these pages previously, and I'll give him full marks for turning in an appearance by Trevor Barnes that didn't actively annoyed me. In fact the clay/brass pot story is a good first step to actually making this character a welcome sight in these pages. However, the opening half of this issue did leave me quite concerned, as was hardly riveting material, and I was concerned Walt Simonson had forgotten his primary function as a writer was to entertain. When Diana makes her arrival though this book really picks up the pace, as the battle has a nice sense of energy to it, and the mystery of the clay idol & Diana's memory loss have left me quite curious. My only real quibble with the second half of this issue is that the villains are defeated a little too easily, as they only managed to deliver a small cut to her arm. Read Full Review

    Trevor Barnes wastes every panel he is in and once again adds more evidence to my argument that nothing good comes from the post-Crisis. This whining, rude and also smug waste of skin--regardless of color-- doesn't need to exist in this or any comic book. Just the thought of him with Diana nauseates. Hopefully, somebody will have the fortitude to banish him to the dimension where his ghoulies had been hacked off or better yet set up an eight hundred number where readers may decide his grisly fate; I opt for him becoming Joel Schumacher's love-slave. I would rather see Diana have a fling with Black Manta than this useless churl. Read Full Review
