Wonder Woman #71
Written by G Willow Wilson
Art by Xermanico
Colors by Romulo Fajardo Jr
Letters by Pat Brosseau
Wonder Woman and Atlantiades are surrounded by the demigod’s unhappy worshippers and Diana is going to have to remind the mob what their anger looks like in contrast to her power. In order to prevent a full scale riot in the small town, Diana is going to have to remind the people what’s truly important as well as teach a demigod the importance of consequences.
At the same time, Aphrodite and Maggie discover a portal in Atlantiades’ temple that just might hold the answers to how the Olympians made their way to Earth in the first place. All she has to do is get past a minotaur.
Willow Wilson infuses this issue with a lot of heart. The characters are written smartly with an emphasis on their humanity. The issue is dialogue heavy because it showcases the need for Diana to educate both sides of the fight as well as teach the single-minded demigod that there are consequences to freedom. There are some interesting lessons learned and the story picks up when Maggie and her quest become the focus.
Xermanico delivers some beautiful and detailed art in this issue. The limited action gives the artist the ability to focus on and showcase the characters, which is done brilliantly throughout.
