Greg Rucka's run on this title ended up disappointing me, and I was excited to see what Shea Fontana had on offer, although I wasn't a fan of Mirka Andolfo's art a few issues ago.

 

This issue was boring, plain and simple. I may sound really offensive here, but I think if you gave this issue to a little girl or a completely new reader to comics, then they will love it. As someone looking for something new, it did absolutely nothing for me.

 

The pacing felt very off to me. There's an extended flashback sequence that seems to go on forever, contributing to an already slow-moving issue. This flashback involves Diana as a child and I don't understand what Fontana was trying to say with it.

 

I wasn't a fan of Andolfo's art when she debuted a few issues ago, but I have to say her art seems to have improved here. It's less cutesy and there's a bit of action thrown in as well.

 

In a less-than-standard issue, Fontana and Andolfo debut in full force. While I was disappointed with the issue, I recommend new readers, to comics or Wonder Woman in general, to check this issue out. It's a fine starting point with the character, especially for those jumping off from the new film.
