    I was almost tempted to give this a perfect score simply because there was no mention of Alkyone or Zeus or Achilles, but I have to be fair. Hopefully, Wonder Woman is out of its rut and can get back on the path to greatness once more. Coming up for all you fanboys out there, Wonder Woman has it out with Chesty Majors in a chapter appropriately titled, Throwdown. Prepare for a super cat fight. Read Full Review

    The hospital scene - during which Wonder Woman tries to appease her guilt and Etta makes her confession - isn't the most exciting one I've read in a super-hero comic, obviously. The scene is linked to the previous storylines, which I've already admitted had lost my interest, and furthermore, Etta gets into her background as an agent for an international espionage/security organization, which again I have little interest in. However, the scene does succeed in winning over the reader, not for what it contributes (or doesn't) to the plot, but rather in what it says about the characters. The strength of the friendship between Diana and Etta and the love they have for one another really comes through. The sensitivity of these women pours off the page, but at the same time, it doesn't weaken them. Their honesty with each other speaks to their integrity. Furthermore, Etta`s down-to-earth attitude makes for a nice balance with Diana's more formal demeanor. Read Full Review
