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.

Hmm, Washington DC looks...Washington DC-ish and not New Yorkish.

Nice.

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

The book's been good on that. I live next to DC and have often found it familiar. Especially when it hits the metro, which it's done on several occasions.

Right busses, too.

Yeah, but the buildings are too tall-- there shouldn't be anything over eight stories.

Yea, one of the few slip-ups. Still, the styling is generally right.
