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.

Man, Colonel, first, thanks for not posting big spoilers, second, thanks for assuming the big weird moment isn't completely random ;) , and third, HOLY SHIT, I never heard the word "antepenultimate' before!

What an amazing word! I had to look it up.

I wish it were true, it's actually my penultimate issue, with a short story in 600 among many. Next issue is my actual last one, sob cry weep bitch complain, whine!

The artists did a lovely job here of crazy destruction, and I loved Nicola's first pages, with the Amazons.

We wanted to have a fun, crazy story to go out on after the relatively depressing Olympian stuff.

Glad you liked it!

And I can't wait to use "antepenultimate" sometime, soon!

Aaaand if he was talking about the issue before this one, it would be your preantepenultimate issue. The more you know. ;-)
