Review: Wonder Woman #6

“Year One: Part Three,” by Greg Rucka and artist Nicola Scott, exactly depicts how I would have imagined Wonder Woman coming to a new world and understanding things. My favorite part of this comic is how they try to show herwhy they want her fingerprints and what a camera is. It also shows exactly how I would have thought people would react to Wonder Woman: locking her up until they knew if she is dangerous or not. Diana can't understand English, so she can't communicate with Steve, Etta, or anyone else with whom she comes in contact. The only person that Diana can communicate with is Dr. Minerva, who is translating for Etta and Steve.
One of the things I enjoyed about this comic is that it didn't go straight into Wonder Woman fighting evil or teaming up with the Justice League. It shows the reader how she's adapting to living on Earth and interacting with humans before she knew how and before she was the Wonder Woman we know and love. What I also liked about this comic were the animals that were involved. I wasn't sure where this comic was going when I saw the cover, depicting Wonder Woman and the animals. However, having the animals as Gods was a present surprise. It just goes to show that you can't judge a book, or a comic, by its cover.
The Verdict: This comic is comical and as a #6 of a series, it doesn't seem like it (so if you're new to reading Wonder Woman you won't be confused). I'm curious to see what next week's comic has in store for Wonder Woman.
