It’s Wonder Woman versus Steve Trevor, as Wonder Woman Evolution issue 2 hits the stands this week.

Wonder Woman is seeing visions, reliving her past, and having to fight familiar friends and unknown enemies in this second issue. Writer Stephanie Phillips gives us an action packed storyline and seemingly endless challenges for Wonder Woman.

The dialogue is crisp, the scenes tightly composed. There are no sidebars to the story here, it’s all tight and going somewhere.

Mike Hawthorne (with inks by Adriano di Benedetto, colours by Jordie Bellaire, lettering by Tom Napolitano) gives us a lithe, fit Diana, with classic Greek features. Hawthorne’s lines are clear, detailed and well defined. Di Benedetto’s inks are strong, providing nice guidance of the eye toward the main figures against the complex columns and pillars.

It’s a well executed issue, making us more invested in joining the Evolution journey!

DC Comics, Wonder Woman Evolution #2, $3.99 for 21 pages of content. Rated 13+

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!!
