In the conclusion of The Lies story arc, we find out that Barbara Ann isn’t the only one whose mind has been messed with when Diana and Steve return to Themyscira. Meanwhile, Etta continues to be a badass as she discovers the treachery that’s been going on in her unit.
Rucka continues to weave a intricate plot that ties seamlessly into the DC Rebirth storyline in a truly amazing and heartbreaking way. There have been clues all along that something wasn’t right, but it’s not until this issue, where everything is a funhouse parody of what we know, that it all clicks together. It’s brilliantly done and genuinely terrifying.
Liam Sharp and Laura Martin do a fantastic job of building that terror with their artwork and colors. The facial work, in particular, immediately tips you off to the knowledge that something is very, very wrong. It all builds to a devastating finale that is brutal, for the characters and the readers.
