Oh no! Diana killed Randolph Asquith, hero turned bad! She must now atone for that heinous sin and struggle to wash his blood off her hands and-- wait, what? She didn't have to do any of that shit? Oh. Well. Ahem. Move along, folks. There's nothing to see here.
Did she not snap his neck? Was that it?
(Although, the lack of THOU MUST REPENT! may have come from the fact that Superman and Batman were in the midst of their own issues at that point, ie. "dead" and "recovering from a damaged spine," respectively. That's if my recollection of the timeline is correct; I don't recall seeing Diana at Clark's funeral and Knightfall happened shortly after in-universe)
Yeah, Diana's "unofficial" costume was horrid. Who on Earth thought that it was okay for Wonder Woman to go around with a bare midriff? That might fly if she was bulletproof, but she isn't. One of her biggest shticks depends upon that very point. I mean, the jacket is a decent touch, and the shorts actually covered more of her than her normal costume does, but her top is basically a glorified sportsbra. What the fuck, Deodato?
It's too bad that the new scan rules prevent these posts from being as extensive as the originals. In this case, the scan I really miss is where Sazia assures Diana that his employee will pay him back for every. Single. Penny.
Speaking of that scene: I like how it shows Diana's mindset. In that same situation, Superman would present his "request" and then proceed outside (doubtlessly smashing something on the way), where he would then hover ominously (and very conspicously) until Sazia caved. Batman would sneak into Sazia's mansion, corner him while he was alone, and use intimidation like it was going out of style. Wonder Woman just casually walks in there, calls every single one of Sazia's bluffs, simply presents a possible situation, and very helpfully points out some of the possible consequences of his actions. At no time is either a demonstration of raw power or any (overt) threat employed. Diplomacy at its finest, particularly because it works.
Question: who are all of the women in the Surprise! panel for Donna's birthday? I recognize the Kapatelis', Hoppy, Etta, and Diana's landlord, but not the others.
