Gail Simone brings her final story arc to a fitting end in what was also her penultimate issue on the title before the anniversary issue the following month. She even endeavours to make amends on DC’s behalf for the much derided debacle that was “Amazons Attack” – one of the most loathed mini-series in Wonder Woman’s history and one which had fans up in arms at the way the Amazons were depicted as merciless child killers.

Issue 44 also served as the final issue of Volume Three, before the title re-set to its original Volume One numbering order the following month- and which issue would mark the arrival of new writer J.M. Straczynski, kicking off his debut story line alongside Simone’s swan song story in what would now become Issue 600.
