[Editor’s note: This review may contain spoilers]

Writer: James Robinson

Artists: Stephen Segovia, Rick Leonardi & Romulo Fajardo Jr.

 

Summary

“The Dark Gods” part two! Wonder Woman seeks answers from the Greek pantheon about the strange new beings barreling towards Earth —but can she convince her creators not to abandon their creation?

 

Positives

The cover by Ray McCarthy and Romulo Fajardo Jr. is great. The two characters look amazing. These two fighting and the obvious intensity of the fight is an exciting image. It immediately makes me want to read the issue.

The interior art is by Stephen Segovia and Rick Leonardi with colors by Romulo Fajardo Jr. The issue looks fantastic. Fajardo Jr.’s colors are brillaint; they’re so vibrant. The characters are expressive and distinct.

 

The fight between Wonder Woman and Supergirl is amazing. The scale and power on display is well handled. There is a decent amount of fun in seeing Supergirl let loose at full power. She is a force and it’s intense to see her fight Wonder Woman.

The reveal of the Dark Gods is great. They have a unique design that is surprising and engaging. I’m excited to find out more about them.

Negatives

The only thing I don’t understand is why only certain people are affected by the Dark Gods. There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why Cheetah and Supergirl went nuts.

 

Verdict

This is a wonderful issue. The art is gorgeous; the action is exhilarating and the dialogue scenes are engaging. The concept of the story becomes a lot more interesting with the reveal of the Dark Gods. The issue is exciting and a genuinely fun read.
