Wonder Woman #6 Preview: The Astounding Arrival of the Amazing Amazon

The third issue of Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott’s “Year One” Wonder Woman arc is out this Wednesday, and if you’re not fixing to pick up this issue then you are doing yourself a great disservice. While “The Lies” arc that runs in the odd numbered issues of Wonder Woman has been fine, “Year One” in the even numbered issues has been spectacular, with great writing and gorgeous artwork. The story continues in Wonder Woman #6 tomorrow, and Harpy‘s got a preview of the issue, showing the early moments of Wonder Woman’s arrival in America:




This looks very fun and there’s lots I’m excited to see play out tomorrow, but for now let’s talk about birds! Various animals are associated with the Greek gods, and the owl’s connection to Athena is a big one. I’m not sure what’s paired with the owl, whether it’s a dove or a pigeon or a seagull, but the first two are usually associated with Aphrodite and just generally Aphrodite is very connected to the sea, so a seagull may fit there. It also looks like there’s a hawk or an eagle circling the beach, birds associated with Apollo and Zeus respectively. It seems that the gods may be keeping tabs on Diana, and I’m curious to see if they eventually make their presence known.

Wonder Woman #6 is available in comic shops and online tomorrow, so be sure to pick it up! The storyline has been fantastic so far, and you’re making a very bad life decision if you’re skipping out on this one!
