From DC, Wonder Woman Come Back To Me #6 wraps up the current arc. This title, reprinting two 12 page chapters per issue from previously printed 100 page Walmart Giants, is an entertaining read.

Writers Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti continue Wonder Woman’s journey to the stars, where ‘the games’ continue. Political posturing, physical battles and Art of War strategizing all come together. Without revealing plot points, everything points to everyone learning the key human concepts of respect for self, respect for others. Oh, and ‘take your hand off me or I’ll bust ya one!”.

While the overall ‘fantastic’ (giant dinosaurs, space aliens, heroes from different centuries being tossed together like salad ingredients) aspect of this Come Back To Me arc can be thought of as retro/ fun escapism, there is more to it. The dialogue is intense and mature. This is a kid’s comic all grown up.

The art by Tom Derenick verges on hyper-realism, with Hi-Fi on colours. The gleams are bright, the figures are immaculate. It all works; we see fantastic things and fantastic beings illustrated to an ultra-high level.

The resolution at the completion of this arc is reminiscent of a TV series, where the various and nefarious happenings are all brought together. It’s fun, it’s escapism, and yes, Wonder Woman has Come Back!

DC Comics, Wonder Woman Come Back To Me #6, $4.99 for 25 pages of content. 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!!
