I thought that last page with Diana laughing seemed off. Turns out it's a dream sequence.

A decent enough story that takes Cheetah's origin revealed in "Justice League" and builds on that by adding the back-story of her family members. Nothing ground-breaking but Ostrander tells a nice done-in-one story that also leaves a door open for possible followup with the US Marshall that's been hunting her since the Belle Reve breakout.
Victor Ibanez delivers some really nice interior art and the cover works especially well with the 3D effect. 8)

Some of the one-shots have been really solid. Dial E was a crazytrain ride with trippy art reminiscent of Morrison's Doom Patrol. This, Clayface, and a couple others this week were solid done-in-ones, something old school comics fans are constantly lamenting the dearth (or death) of.

I didn't care for the Eclipso one, but I never liked Eclipso, it's a stupid-looking villain with a stupid name IMO.
