Wonder Woman #7 brings the reader back into the “modern day” portion of this back and forth story.

Wonder Woman finds herself in a reluctant team up with her friend turned bitter enemy, Cheetah, to stop an ancient evil, the god of the jungle, Urzkartaga. The two must make set their differences aside to stop the deity from acquiring a new host body.

The story is fast paced and exciting. At no point does it ever feel like it is dragging on or convoluted. In the midst of the story is a sort of subtext of women’s own ability to break out of an abusive situation as Wonder Woman reveals that Urzkartaga does not keep concubines because he controls them but rather because he is afraid of them and that strong women can be his undoing.

This book has been a shining star since it’s rebirth and continues to be a fresh take on the character while still respecting every story that has come before. I’ll give this issue 4 out of 5 stars.
