Wonder Woman #55
Publisher: DC Comics
Released: September 26th 2018
Okay, I know I’ve said this before, but this time I think I’m right: this issue brings with it the end to the current plot arc. Since it wasn’t my favorite Wonder Woman plot, I’m more than okay with that. I can’t wait to see what Diana gets herself into next. It’s been a while since we’ve seen her main supporting cast – so hopefully they’ll get thrown into the mix soon.
The way everything was solved in this issue felt a little repetitive. It seemed like Diana kept going for the same tool again and again (because she did) to solve all of her problems. I mean, I guess if it works why bother trying something else? It did make everything slow and predictable though, which I doubt was the goal.
Artemis played a major role in this issue, which makes sense all things considered. I wonder if the changes made to her character (specifically the item she now carries) will appear in any of her other cameos? Or if this is a onetime deal? Either way, I do like the change they’ve made here.
Actually, on that note. I wouldn’t mind a longer running series with those two. They’d probably need a few more characters to help round things out, but I think it’d be a fun team-up. And yes, I’m aware that they don’t really get along all that well. That’d be part of the fun of it.
The artwork for this issue was pretty decent on the whole. Wonder Woman seriously has some of the best dramatic poses of all time, and this issue is no exception. And as an added bonus, Artemis gets a few as well.
