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.

Good eye, Joas!

It was actually the great Kurt Busiek who pointed out what an interesting germ of an idea this story presented!

He offered to loan me the issues from his collection, but fortunately, I was able to pick them up in Portland, and I found the idea kind of irresistable!

I scrambled around to find my copy of it- this was grade A-nightmare fuel when I was nine :D

I can't wait to go pick the issue up and see how the rest of this plays out. (also, <3 for Mysia ;D)
