Wonder Woman’s quest to bring justice to Man’s World has seen her take on many devastating opponents-but none so vicious as Maxwell Lord! Max represents the worst that humanity has to offer…so when he’s drafted by the military to help save the day, what’s a warrior for the truth to do?
I love David Marquez’s cover. Wonder Woman confidently facing off against giant robots is such a badass image. It’s an image that would instantly make me buy the book.
The interior art is gorgeous. I love Mikel Janin’s style. It’s very animated; I find it to be very engaging. Jordie Bellaire’s colors are also great.
Diana’s vision is very cool. It allows Janin and Bellaire to be a little more stylistic. It’s a cool looking section of the book. It’s a great action scene especially with the tension and dread that comes from not knowing what is actually happening in the real world.
This story is moving at a nice pace. I appreciate that the problem was set up with two people hallucinating. And then Diana was immediately infected. She also attacked soldiers which will potentially lead to really interesting stories.
There’s also a decent mystery involved. Mariko Tamaki provided a scenario in which Maxwell Lord is the most likely suspect and then gave reasons why it couldn’t be him. It still could turn out to be him, of course, but it’s an intriguing mystery.
The friendship between Diana and Emma is sweet. I enjoy stories about friends; it’s fun to see Diana connect with people outside of her work environment. I am curious what effect Emma will have on the story or if she is potentially the culprit.
There are no negatives worth mentioning.
This is another great issue. I love the artwork throughout; it’s gorgeous and captivating. The action is solid. And I think the mystery is compelling. So far, this is a good start to the story.
