Wonder Woman (Volume 5) #26

I was prepared to dislike this comic book. I think Greg Ruck’s run was tremendous and I was sad to see him leaving so I didn’t come into reading this with any hope but I am happy to say Shea Fontana did a good job of keeping me interested. In fact, the stuff with Hippolyta and Wonder Woman as a little girl reminds me so much of the movie that it brought a smile to my face. Wonder Woman rarely interacts with little girls or children, so it was a lot of fun to read her talking to the little girl at the wedding. The girl reminded me so much of my nieces. I also like that Fontana actually uses the supporting cast that Rucka has built up. I hope James Robinson does the same when he comes on board. I especially hope we get to see Ferdinand again.

Circe finally arrives in this volume of Wonder Woman. In the past, I would have rolled my eyes. There was a time where it seemed like she was in every other Wonder Woman comic. But as Rucka tends to do, he reinvents Circe here with a new look and a more interesting attitude. He even tells the story of how Wonder Woman and Circe first encounter eachother in this issue. The 5-year-timeline for the character is essentially gone. The caption at the beginning says it takes place in Diana’s seventh year away from Themyscara. Thanks the Gods! The real DCU timeline is coming back.

While searching for the gateway to Themyscira, Veronica Cale looks to have found both her daughter and Ares in some mystical dark tree prison. Ares is looking SEXY as hell. Thanks Liam Sharp. This is a much more interesting look for Ares than he ever had before. I am sad that Rucka is leaving this comic again soon.
