George Perez not only reinvented and reinvigorated the “Wonder Woman” ethos, he also sowed genuine affection and passion for the character. This is clearly shown by his decision to write the book from a more mature, “real world” perspective than the pre-crisis version. He also on occasions used different and unusual techniques in his story telling, further emphasising the fact that “Wonder Woman” was more than just another “comic book”.

This issue is a good example of this different take, whereby the story is advanced through the writings of key characters. As such, the issue is almost fifty fifty split between artwork and pure narrative text. However, it enables the reader to better understand how others perceive Diana as well as being a great plot device to cover many events that in the story timeline take place over several months, all in one issue.
