Clayface is on the loose! How can Wonder Woman protect Cassie Sandsmark, Donna Troy and their friends and family from danger if Clayface can disguise himself as anyone in the camp—including Wonder Woman herself?!
In this issue, a new artist team takes over from the Dodsons, giving the readers a more pleasing aesthetic in the transition. Bennett is a master at work here when she gives Clayface a different origin, as she develops him as a fully formed character – a bigot, a soldier, and a man wanting to be better. The story also shows how the presence of these superheroes affect normal Americans. The last positive I drew from this issue, is that Bennett, is constantly building on the storyline, where, although the story takes place in the 1940s, many of the issues are very much relevant.
The most glaring negative I drew from this issue is how Clayface becomes silver, a rather romantic conversion but not one I can totally buy into.
I would borrow this one, as the sudden change of events that lead to the events at the end of this issue feels a little melodramatic. I am hoping the next issue will make sense of what happened here.
