    Second Genesis, Part 1 last edited by pikahyper on 06/22/20 06:41PM View full history

    Beginning an exciting new era for the Amazing Amazon as John Byrne takes over the story and art on WONDER WOMAN! With the events of Boston and Paradise Island behind her, Diana takes up residence in a new location, Gateway City, to start her life anew…and finds herself immediately drawn into Darkseid's quest to learn the fate of the old gods!

    In the aftermath of The Contest and The Challenge of Artemis, Diana decides to make a new life for herself in Gateway City. One night, while flying around the city, she comes upon a bank heist in progress. She is caught off guard by their technologically advanced weaponry, but recovers and apprehends the would-be bank robbers. A few days later Mike Schorr, a police officer investigating these high tech weapons, walks into a dive bar, looking for information. The patrons consist of criminals enjoying a brief reprieve from the prison cells that await their inevitable return. They are uncooperative and become violent. Officer Schorr is outnumbered and taking a beating before Wonder Woman rescues him. They team up and locate a hidden door. Opening it reveals an underground passage. While wandering through the tunnels, Diana is troubled by the fact that the advanced technology feels strangely familiar, but she cannot recall when she encountered it before. Suddenly they are attacked by a giant, mechanical spider and surrounded by Parademons. Despite a valiant effort by Wonder Woman and Officer Schorr, the pair suffer defeat and taken prisoner. Wonder Woman remembers the technology's origin too late as they are handed over to Darkseid, the evil and powerful ruler of Apokolips!

    There are some things about John Byrne that I like and some things that I don't like.  For instance even though he a decent enough artist and writer, I find when he does both at the same time that both suffer from it.  A perfect example of this here is the cover to this issue which is one of the worst pieces of Wonder Woman art I have ever seen.  Another thing he does is that he seems to have a fascination with the Apokolips crowd and likes them in his stories.  Despite those two drawbacks in th...
