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.

Motto. Why couldn't Robinson put Archilles in the JLA? Screw Congorilla, I want Archilles flying around on his elephant vanquishing evil.

Achilles IS appearing in a DC team book very shortly, and not one written by me!
I'm looking forward to it.

OH YAY! and gail nice nod to the myth (Achilles' strength being proporational to his willingness to fight) conscidering he refused to fight through the first like 19 books of the Iliad.

will Patrick Cleese join him? :)

I hope to see how he's handled, other writers being able to write a character is key to whether they get longevity I think.

Yay! Hmm, he isn't going to land the elephant on a Teen Titan is he?

I think all the Titans are already marked for death. I'm pretty sure they ran out of Titans a couple years back.

*sighs and nods* They finally had to start bringing in new ones, not created by Wolfman and Perez, and then those died too...

I think "Archilles flying around on his elephant vanquishing evil" is the most beautiful sentence ever written. XD
