We’ve got a new issue of Wonder Woman this week, and while I was skeptical of DC’s double shipping plan when it was first announced, it’s grown on me. It’s kind of fun to get a double shot of a good series each month or, in the case of Wonder Woman, one spectacular issue and one that’s fine. This week, we get the fine issue; Wonder Woman #7 continues “The Lies” by Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp. It’s been a bit of a slow burn, a Cheetah-centric story that has barely mentioned the titular lies at all. But things appear to be coming to a head now. Let’s take a peek at the issue, courtesy of Comicosity:
So we’ve got Wonder Woman and Cheetah on the scene where Steve, his fellow soldiers, and the missing girls are being held. With the girls freed, I’m guessing the rest of the book will be a confrontation with the villain Cadulo and his evil deity benefactor, Urzkartaga. And then maybe “The Lies”? It’d be nice to get to them sooner than later, but it’ll depend how long it takes Wonder Woman and the Cheetah to defeat a warlord and a god. It shouldn’t be that hard, really.
Wonder Woman #7 will be available in comic shops and online this Wednesday! And keep your eyes peeled for the Jenny Frison variant cover because it’s super gorgeous. I mean, take a gander:
The issue’s worth picking up for that story alone. I hope DC’s talking to Frison about maybe doing some interior stuff in Wonder Woman. Even just a short story would be fun. She’s just so good!
