Arc was a bit long and I could see a better streamlined version of this story but overall a solid conclusion the storyline. The team made the best they could with where Death Metal left Diana t the end of that series. Looking forward to Diana heading back to the main Earth have some trust in this creative team to use more of her supporting cast and villains.

What happens when an indomitable force meets an irritating object? That’s what readers find out when Superman runs into Lobo. Think of it like a boy scout joining a biker gang. What will be worse, the damage Lobo causes on his own, or the chaos of trying to stop him? I smell a team-up, fanboys! Numen is the most popular being in the universe, a g...

"We Built A New World" - Hmm, rather touching Diana/Steve story. Probably the best of this issue.

"Espionage" - Fairly amusing "gritty update" on Mod-era/Emma Peel knock-off Wonder Woman.

"Beat The Heat and "Do No Harm" - Grouping these together because they both cover the same topic pretty much so kind of odd from an editorial standpoint to include them not only in the same more

Fun issue for the most part, might be my favorite since the Norse arc ended, I felt each world visited visited could have been an issue by itself.

"Without Love" - I liked it well enough, cool to see Strife back. Felt this story could have been a longer actually but shows Tamaki could have a good run if her run wasn't the Max Lord book. Makes the best use of the limited color palette of the series.

"The God With No Name" - Reads like it's trying to fuse New 52 WW with more classic WW with an alternate take on The First Born and more

"Mother's Daughter - Very sitcom-y. I can't say I cared for it that much.

"What Doesn't Kill You" - Didn't on the whole care for the art but some interesting callbacks to earlier WW stories.

"I'm Ageless" - Pretty good story, art was probably of the best of the bunch in this issue.
