Wonder Woman #76 Review: Mother and Child Reunions

After the suitably epic, oversized Wonder Woman #75, this issue takes a break from battle and revelations in favour of something a little quieter. It’s a nice pause after the action and adventure of the past few outings, a well deserved breather as characters adjust to their new realities and the opportunities they present. ThereContinue reading “Wonder Woman #76 Review: Mother and Child Reunions”

Wonder Woman #9 Review: Paradise Found?

I can’t not comment on this cover again, even though there’s lots of other stuff to dig into in this issue, because Steve Trevor looks like a straight up creeper. I said it when they first released it in the solicits and I’m saying it now; this is a very offputting cover. The dude isContinue reading “Wonder Woman #9 Review: Paradise Found?”
