This issue follows directly on from the Wonder Woman Special #1 and sees William Messner-Loebs begin his time on the title, together with new cover artist Brian Bolland who would produce some truly gorgeous covers over the next year or so. Many fans were both eager and nervous to see how Messner-Loebs could possible follow on and live up to George Perez’s epic five year run, as an edgier, sexier and more mature version of the Amazon Princess was promised and who would become far more integrated into the overall DC Universe than she had during the Perez era. And certainly the themes in this issue are definitely darker as we learn the villains’ intentions for Wonder Woman!
