hyperion322's Wonder Woman #37 - Warkiller, Part 2 of 4: Of Two Minds review

Welcome to the Family Feud!

Wonder Woman's personal troubles only continue to worsen this issue as she's visited in her sleep by the dead God of War, Ares, who she killed several issues back. It appears that even in death, Ares is not done with the former Amazon warrior! If Ares hoped to scare Diana, he failed, instead he reignites her sense of justice and she races to Themyscira in hopes to rescue her mother from the rule of now king of the island, Achilles. But Achilles and his new bride, renegade Amazon, Alkyone, are prepared for Wonder Woman's return. Following so far? Well Donna Troy, Diana's younger sister, who's been deceived into hating her sister, catches Wonder Woman unaware and the two battle a short, but intense fight that not only strengthens the bond between the two, but allows Donna to see the truth. But Diana appears to be too late to free her mother because Hippolyta has surrendered herself and reveals that the tiara and title of, "Wonder Woman", now belong to Alkyone. There's all this, plus pregnant Amazons, and the return of Amazon leader, Artemis -- PHEW. A great story, but definitely not an issue for a new Wonder Woman reader with so much going on since the beginning of Gail Simone's run. Chang's art is dramatic, creepy where it needs to be, bold, and intense - unfortunately Wonder Woman does not look as though she possessed the beauty of Aphrodite. Woof! I'm again excited for the next issue, but I hope the former princess is able to turn things around on Paradise Island and fast!

    I am always very hesitant about stories which involve heroes fighting each other.  It as though the concept is appealing to those who are tired of seeing heroes fight villains or those who are trying to rank the heroes against one another.  Here though we see Diana versus Donna and it is mostly handled pretty well.  For those who had read the previous issue, they would know that there are other forces at work on Themyscira, and therefore it is not surprising when Donna attacks Diana.  It creates...

    This is a "man's world"  If you have not been keeping up with Wonder Woman, then you are perhaps missing out on one of her best story lines in years. Gail Simone does an amazing job capturing the warrior spirit of the character, yet has been able to add a level of vulnerability to the displaced Amazonian princess giving her a more balance. Issue #37 continues to revolve around the upheaval of Themyscira and its newly appointed king, ...
