Comments

This story uses almost exactly the same set up used by Joey Cavalieri in issue 65. This almost seemed like Bryne’s response to those fans complaining about why Cassie was even necessary, when the character of Vanessa already existed. This issue came across as his token acknowledgement that the character still even existed. Indeed, Vanessa would not really make a return into Diana’s life until the Phil Jimenez run, when after increasingly resenting Diana’s seeming indifference to her and becoming ever more jealous of Cassie, the young girl was lured into becoming the new Silver Swan. Her hate agenda against Wonder Woman would be put to good use.

Synopsis

A standalone story which sees Dr. Psycho tormenting Vanessa Kapatelis in her dreams.
