Don’t miss the start of a new, six-issue miniseries written and illustrated by Liam Sharp (WONDER WOMAN)! When a Celtic god’s murder leads to a war between the fairy folk and a possible breach between worlds, Wonder Woman must find the murderer and keep the peace while Batman investigates strange occurrences in Gotham City. As Diana must turn to the World’s Greatest Detective for help, the two heroes quickly learn their cases may be connected.
The art by Sharp is the first thing that grabs you as his style feels intimate and alluring, a rare vision for both characters. We also see a realistic relationship dynamic between Diana and Steve Trevor, which portrays a couple in love, something that lets the readers know that Wonder Woman is as human as her fans. The story itself unfolds like a good old-fashioned murder mystery, but with supernatural twists, one the reader will not soon forget. Lastly, the psychological effects that the strange occurrences have on Bruce’s psyche sees him unravel at the end of this issue, something that would feel off-putting to the reader.
There are no negatives worth mentioning in this issue.
Buy, as both the story and the art grabs you from the get-go.
