The George Perez era not only stands out for its imaginative re-defining of the Amazon Princess and her history, but also for the maturity of writing that was not always typical of comic stories during this time. On a number of occasions Perez did what could only be described as “stand alone” issues, still part of the overall continuity but executed in a unique style that set them apart from other issues, quite often in an almost purely narrative form. In this issue, the story is told by a combination of flashback and flash-forward scenes, real time scenes and narrative portions from Ed Indelicato’s police report.

What I also like about this issue is that we see Diana in almost a “Batman-esque” role, undertaking detective work and tracking down her quarry – something we do not normally associate with her as a character.
