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.

What's the name of the flying elephant? Will he join the Pet JLA with Power Girl's cat?

I'd assume it's Mysia like Mysia.

That is correct, A_C!

It's pathetic, but man, if I could just write Hippolyta, Artemis and Mysia for the rest of my life, I'd be pretty happy. I had more fun writing them than almost anything else I've ever worked on.

And Mysia doesn't talk, even!

I wish you wrote Green Arrow/Black Canary. If DC gave you a run there, that would've been epic.

Hoping I'm not the only one who thought this.

It was offered to me a couple times, and they did ask me to participate
in the wedding issue and the marriage stories.

If anyone could have salvaged that storyline, it would have been you.
