This issue once more demonstrates the down to earth realism that Perez brought to the book. He is prepared to confront the issues of how Diana’s role as Wonder Woman impacts those around her – particularly those that love her. The recent trauma’s experienced by Vanessa would, in most other titles, have simply been brushed under the carpet and ignored but Perez focuses on them as part of the story line. He manages to make Diana seem ever more like a real flesh and blood character through the depiction of the all too human emotions of the troubled teenager, struggling to come to terms with the recent death of her friend Lucy and the ever present threat of Wonder Woman being killed in action. I’m sure many readers can empathise with Vanessa, imagining or perhaps even knowing how it feels to have a loved one that faces dangers on a day to day basis as part of their job.
