The Godwatch storyline keeps getting stronger and stronger. I really enjoy the characters and their motivations. We spend so much time with Veronica Cale and so little time with Wonder Woman. Veronica is such a well-developed character by this point, and Greg Rucka has been firing on all cylinders with this story.

 

I personally wanted to mention that there were only three minor male characters in this issue, with the rest being female. This is a diverse title and Rucka is taking full advantage of it.

 

A new character is introduced in the form of a witch named Circe the Weaver. Circe was such a fun character and it's obvious the team had a blast with her. Her dialogue was so fresh, and her general wackiness obviously made artist Bilquis Evely flex her muscles a little bit. Circe's face was very expressive, as were her body movements, which only made Evely's art look and feel more diverse.

 

In terms of continuity between all these different arcs and time periods, I can tell that this series will be a blast to read in chronological order. Characters and events are mentioned in different issues, such as Ares being name-dropped in this issue.

 

The team impresses yet again with another incredible issue. The art was Evely's best on the series so far, and the inclusion of a new character brought a huge amount of freshness to the story. Veronica Cale's character is the most developed in the book, making her very sympathetic, which excuses the lack of Wonder Woman in this issue.

Our Score:

10/10
