Welcome back to Wonder Woman Come Back #2, from DC. When we last left this reprinting of Walmart’s Wonder Woman Giant, we were seeing WW and Etta emerge in a prehistoric land. Sort of like Alice in NeolithicLand.

Written by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, and drawn by Chad Hardin and Tom Derenick, with Alex Sinclair on colours, Come Back To Me Part 3 and 4 pits Wonder Woman and her companions against all manner of foe. Giant talking jaguar. Primitive jungle men wielding automatic weapons. Jonah Hex!!

Wow, the arrival of Jonah Hex on the scene, next to a downed aircraft in the midst of the jungle really sets the stage for literally ANYTHING to happen!

It’s an adventure book for sure, this one. Plenty of hardy and hearty action, well-choreographed transitions from one scene to another, lots of beautifully rendered scenes of our Wonder Woman jumping, charging, negotiating and just being, well, a hero.

The characters are individuals here, the illustrations easy to understand and follow. I like the facial features throughout; the poses are realistic and capably rendered and coloured. This makes the title an easy one to pick up and become a fan of Wonder Woman, with no previous knowledge necessary.

DC Wonder Woman Come Back #2, $4.99 for 25 pages of content. Rated Teen

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
