I am actually enjoying a Wonder Woman comic. Every month. How is that possible? I've always liked the character, just not the stories. Well, that's all changed now. Here's stuff I particularly liked about this week's issue:
1. Super-intelligent ape commandos fighting high-tech NazisWhile that speaks for itself, it's only REALLY great because the apes started out as Diana's enemies who know owe her fealty. Wonder Woman is REGAL.
2. Diana's prayer
It's wonderful that Diana can be both spiritual and compassionate without losing any of her power as a warrior. Gail Simone has found the Amazon's voice in fewer than 3 issues.
3. Amazon baby killers
The whole backstory of Diana's birth is fascinating, with a segment of the Amazonian population seeing childbirth as an aberration of Man's World. Naturally!
4. The Golden Age reference
If having Diana fighting Nazis isn't already a throwback to her origins as a WWII hero, this bondage joke seals the deal. Delightful!
5. The Golden Eagle
My favorite bit from WW16 has to be the origin of the W-bird on her costume. Only Gail Simone can fill a cleavage shot with meaning. I am in awe.
More positivism every week here on the SBG... though expect a fair chunk of "5 Things to Like" to be about Wonder Woman, Booster Gold and Iron Fist!
