Having read dozens of these stories now, other than the revamped origin element (I liked), the plots are not much different from what came before. Giant eagle, menacing fish, enemy sub attack (swapped for space aliens), lovestruck Steve Trevor (getting stale), magical conclusion for the sake of helping kids.

What set this issue apart from previous stories are two things. The 25 page format is more fluid then the previous 3 story format. The art is much improved. WW doesn’t feel like a static wood carved stencil. I like her straight hair vs. the old fashion curly doo.

Awesome Cover!

Peter’s last issue features not three stories, but a three part story.

Wonderful second cover of the Andru\Esposito team. However, the stories are more of the same.
Angle Man returns, as if he never got caught the last time.

Lovestuck Stevie has got it bad.

Wonder Woman also suffers from writers block.

The GA of WW death pains continue.
