If you asked Wonder Woman who her nemesis is, she might just say Veronica Cale — and now Veronica has the powers of the actual god Nemesis under her control! Some of the resurrected Olympians whom Wonder Woman has encountered have changed in unpredictable ways…is there a crack in Nemesis’ armor that Diana can get through? Or will she miss the chance to redeem yet another of her divine brethren?
Xermanico’s cover is cool. It’s eye catching. I like the texture of the colors. And it’s a fun image.
The interior art is solid. I like the colors a lot. The characters are expressive. There’s a cool scene in a cave and the team uses the shadows to their advantage for the most visually interesting scene of the book.
I like the misdirect with Veronica Cale. The story is a lot bigger than her and that’s a welcome reveal. The idea of Cale suing Wonder Woman felt a little dull to me so I’m glad that gets resolved here and the story can move forward. Additionally, I like that Diana is able to reason with Cale through compassion. That’s a staple of Wonder Woman stories and it’s always a nice deviation from the medium.
There are no negatives that I feel are worth mentioning.
This is a strong issue. Wilson plays with expectations from the last issue and the story takes a more interesting turn. I’m curious to see where this goes. The art is nice as well and it’s an enjoyable read.
