Wonder Woman #76 comic reviewWonder Woman #76 is a transitional issue bridging the gap between the previous arc and teasing what is to come as the comic gets wrapped up in DC’s current Year of the Villain event. While I’m not all that interested in Cheetah going all god killer over the next few issues, this issue works impressively as a standalone issue (even if you, like me, haven’t been paying close attention to the comic recently).

A solid issue all around, there’s enough here for both longtime and casual fans including some strong art by Lee Garbett and some nice character moments between Diana and both friends and enemies.

Justice League Unlimited - This Little Piggy television review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back to the animated adventures of Justice League. “This Little Piggy” is a hell of a goofy episode that features Wonder Woman (Susan Eisenberg) being turned into a pig by the sorceress Circe (Rachel York). Needing all the help he can get, Batman (Kevin Conroy) turns to his old friend Zatanna (Jennifer Hale) to try and break the spell. When that fails, he calls on a few C-list Justice Leaguers to hunt down both the Wonder Pig (who goes missing) and Circe. All of the bizarre antics later, including Wonder Pig wandering into a slaughter house, conclude with Batman paying Circe’s price for Diana’s freedom in a way that brings both Circe and Zatanna to tears.

Justice League #1

Justice League #1 comic reviewWriter Scott Snyder and artist Jim Cheung relaunch the Justice League with a first issue that throws the reader into a battle between the Neanderthal army of Vandal Savage and the Justice League. Several DC heroes as shown, and others are mentioned as the group fights across the world on multiple fronts. However, the true danger lies not on the ground but from the skies.

There’s much to like here include the classic nod to the Justice League meeting in the Hall of Justice. This new version also has the Martian Manhunter as the chairman of the league, using his telepathic abilities to connect the heroes around the globe and, when necessary, bring the core members together in a psychic board room. I’m also pleased to see that the core group includes another female hero, besides Wonder Woman, in Hawgirl.

Wonder Woman #39

Wonder Woman #39 comic reviewWonder Woman #39 isn’t bad, but it’s certainly far from a must-read. The latest issue is heavy on action featuring Wonder Woman squaring off with the murderous new incarnation of Silver Swan. Every panel of our heroine is in battle with the former friend turned crazy super-villain. Or, to put it more appropriately, playing defense and refusing to fight the tormented girl up until the point that the new villain attacks Diana’s brother Jason.

The rest of the issue catches up with Darkseid and his daughter Grail as they attempt to collect artifacts of power in a move to restore the former leader of Apokolips back to full-strength. This also offers short cameos for the Female Furies and for Steve Trevor and his men (who stand between Darkseid’s minions and their bounty).
