    Wonder Woman Finally has legs, a direction, and is moving again! For the first time in what feels like forever, I am actively anticipating the next issue. In fact, genuinely cannot WAIT until next month to find out what happens next! What a wonderful feeling. If Hester continues on like this, I think that, against ALL odds, “Odyssey” might end up being a very good, and very worthwhile, storyline after all. Read Full Review

    This certainly isnt the best issue by far, but its not the worst. I can say that much. However, the whole thing is starting to feel a bit long-winded and pointless. The glimmer of Wonder Woman getting a much needed beat down has already worn off, and now were back to scratching our heads and wishing we could just have our damn star spangled onesie back. Something fun needs to happen again, and fast. Otherwise, Wonder Woman is going to fall right back into that horrible rut again, and DC will have to do another drastic change to pull it back out.

    At the end of the day, the book is sadly in a state that begs to be reset back to zero (or pre-600), to give Diana a return to the glory she deserves, even though another reboot seems painful to even think about. It'd be wonderful if the end of the Odyssey arc brings things around as promised, but at this point it seems unlikely at best, and impossible at worst. Read Full Review

    That being said, this isnt a horrible comic. Straczynski and Hester are good writers and I enjoy Don Kramers art (I also like the new costume so maybe Im nuts.) Wonder Woman #609 is an alright read in and of itself but it does seem to exist largely just to help set up the big thing thats apparently coming in three issues. Read Full Review
