This issue we see the return of Hippolyta – though only in spirit form. Meanwhile, while some fans were glad to see the end of the Azzarello era, others were expressing increasing concerns at the “off” depiction of Diana. Accusations of her being portrayed as a “whiny child” and behaving more and more out of character became louder – but others argued that this was all part of Wonder Woman’s internal conflict with the burden of being God of War.

The variant cover is a great pastiche of Rich Buckler’s cover to Issue 250 from the pre-crisis era.
