In this instalment of Wonder Woman, two of Azzarello’s biggest plots come together, as the First Born finally gets into the main story and comes face to face with Lennox, Zola and baby Zeke. We also find out that Cassandra, the woman who dug the First Born out of the ground is another one of Zeus’ kids, and she has a history with Lennox, in that he ripped her throat out. I really like how Azzarello has given one of our heroes such a dark thing in his past, the Greek Gods are messed up and complicated, and so is this title. Also in this issue is a knock-down, slap-out fight between Wonder Woman and Artemis, which is a lot of fun. Goran Sudzuka draws the heck (I don’t want to say hell because he’s a character in this book and it could get confusing) out of it, and you could tell that he was following breakdowns from Cliff Chiang. Whilst I’m sad that he can’t drawn every single issue of this book, I really appreciate how each fill-in is similar in style.
I also liked how the fight brought up the idea that Wonder Woman has been holding back in combat for a long time, I can’t wait to see what Diana looks like when she stops holding back, I’m guessing that’s a part of Azz’s endgame. This is simply one of DC’s best and most consistent comics, I really want more of their books to be like this, where they just let a creator tell their own story. The Marvel Now approach before there even was Marvel Now!
