Wonder Woman #19 (New to politics Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Thu Apr 18, 2013 10:12 am

Another solid issue of Wonder Woman. This is a title that has a lot of issues that move slowly and are mainly just setting up stuff for later, but it never feels like stalling because a) the stuff that happens is usually couched in very entertaining dialogue and b) you have faith in Azzarello that all of this will pay off in the end. This issue is mainly moving things into place for the inevitable conflict between Wonder Woman and the First Born, as he finds out about Zola’s baby and decides to make a move against it. Of course, around this are the ever-present threats of Apollo, Poseidon and Hell. It’s very impressive how many great threats to Wonder Woman Azzarello has created in only 20 issues. Sure, most of them come from the Greek Myth, but these are unique and fascinating interpretations.

In amongst all of heavenly this politicking there are some very good quieter scenes too, such as Zola’s baby finally being named. It’s Zeke, which is both appropriate for a character like Zola, and also of course sounds a lot like ‘Zeus’ who still has not actually appeared yet. The other quieter scene is about the relationship between Wonder Woman and Orion, as she confronts him about his flirting and rude innuendos. This was a great scene where Diana kicks his ass, and we get to see Orion’s inner Darkseid come to the fore. I hope this isn’t the last we’ll see of him or any of the other New Gods in this title, they are a great fit for a story about the old Gods, and Cliff Chiang and his assorted fill-ins draw them really well. I also hope Lennox doesn’t actually leave, but I’m guessing he’ll leave only to be killed by the First Born.
