When phallic objects attack!



Four scans from Wonder Woman #43, Gail Simone's antepenultimate issue.


The Citizenry, led by Astarte, who claims to be Antiope, Diana's aunt, is still attacking Washington, which is cut off from everything else.  They unleash one of those giant silver snakes:



Etta and Steve look on (Diana is fighting Astarte elsewhere), wondering what they're going to do.





Finally, he does something impressive.

Actually, that whole sequence was well done, the sort of feat that Diana herself really needs to do more.

Regarding the end of that scan, the lasso-vision then gives us Astarte's supposedly backstory, which is so completely divorced from past Amazon history that there's obviously something else going on here.

Pretty good issue, overall.  And both of the artists do really strong work.

Artists doing research? How oddly refreshing. I think I like it.
