Rucka continues to seamlessly tie Wonder Woman into Rebirth in this issue as Diana and Barbara, unknowingly, make their way to Steve and his team. As the two discuss the whims of gods while making their way to Cadulo’s hideout, Steve gets more information than he could ever want about Urzkartaga because Cadulo just can’t help being himself. Meanwhile, back in the states, Etta debates calling in the cavalry but she has way bigger problems than Steve being missing coming down the pike.
As always Liam Sharp and Laura Martin’s artwork makes everything better, as the jungle literally comes alive to trap our heroes. I know I harp on this, but the faces are phenomenal, each character distinct and expressive with every detail, from their clothing to body language telling the story just as much as the words.
Wonder Woman continues to knock it out of the park and makes me want more: 5 out of 5 body paints.
