Review: Wonder Woman #27

[Editor’s note: This review contains spoilers.]

Writer: Shea Fontana

Artists: Mirka Andolfo & Romulo Fajardo Jr.

 

Summary

Wonder Woman must rescue the victims of the bombing at the wedding.

 

Positives

The cover by Jesus Merino and Alex Sinclair is pretty cool. I love the blue; that’s always a great atmospheric color to use. The surgical tools in her face is a super creepy image. The cover works and is interesting.

The interior art is by Mirka Andolfo and Romulo Fajardo Jr. It is really solid work. Andolfo’s pencils on Diana are really great. It’s gorgeous!! In particular, I love the image of Diana’s pantsuit being torn away to reveal the Wonder Woman costume. However, that pantsuit was awesome so I hate the villain for destroying it.

The story is really interesting. I did not expect the villain to be who it turned out to be; that took me by complete surprise. But it’s also a good idea. Diana, and other beings like her, could potentially save lives with blood samples or other forms of DNA. But there is a severe danger to that and I like how the issue handles it. The villain is sympathetic and tragic to a degree.

I really like how much of this issue is spent on Wonder Woman saving civilians. Ironically, we don’t see that enough in superhero fiction. Typically, they just beat up the bad guy and that certainly happens in this issue as well. But I enjoyed watching her rescue people in trouble.

 

Negatives

No negatives worth mentioning in this issue.

 

Verdict

This is a great issue. The story is interesting with several standout moments of dialogue and action. The art is gorgeous and the issue is just a lot of fun. I highly recommend reading this issue.
