Definitely think Young Justice was the high point of this week. Amethyst is cool, but not a top character for me, but I loved the alternate cover focusing on her and you have to love her ominous killer splash page.
I would have to say my favorite member coming in is Tim Drake. Though I grew up with Dick Grayson, think Tim is the most complete Robin and whether it’s here or in the recent Detective Comics run I feel he adds a lot to the story. Truth is, I very much enjoyed all of the character intros. Cassie has something going on that she’s reluctant to be Wonder Girl, Jinny Hex is very intriguing idea for a legacy character, Bart is Bart. The only one I don’t have a feel for one way or another is Teen Lantern. And is it worth opening a coffee shop in Metropolis? This is the same shop that was trashed in Action #1000. Those ladies need to move somewhere safer, like Gotham.
As for the main feature, Wonder Woman. It was a mixed bag for me this week. I think Perez is a good, but not great writer so something slower and more personal like the annual is for me not his best fit. It was slow for me, and nothing memorable. It’s most redeeming trait was the varied artwork. I did enjoy the conclusion to the Band-Mighdall story, with the city “destroyed” but not before it’s Amazons released whose side Wonder Woman and Hermes were really on. But, I’m confused about who or what is behind the mask of Shim’tar. Was it just the corrupted Girlde of Gaea? Was someone else in there? I honestly don’t know.
And I wanna stick up for our girl Etta. Bump Steve! “I got a roomy now, so the marriage thing is off.” Huh? Work it out Steve.
