zeeguy91's Wonder Woman #9 - The Dearly Beloved review

Love Me, Love Me Not

Its very rare that what is essentially a filler issue gets me so excited and leaves me with a feeling of absolute contentment, but that is basically what happened here. I continue to be amazed at the quality of writing that's being churned out by Azzarello on this title. In this issue, we see a further exploration into the pantheon of gods that populate Wonder Woman's world and, at the same time, we discover a little bit about Hades' character. Who would have thought the ruler of the underworld could have a sensitive side, which sort of brings us to the awesomeness of the ending scene. Now, I won't spoil it for anyone, you just have to read to find out. Trust me, this is a fantastic issue.

However, the only thing that stopped me from giving this a perfect 5/5 is the art. Now, Akins is by no means bad as a fill in artist, but at the same time, he's no Cliff Chiang. The way that some of the panels and characters were drawn did give me somewhat of a "cartoony" feeling, one that I didn't necessarily like. So, I am going to have to deduct half a point for that. However, I still can't wait for the next issue and I can't wait for Cliff to come back on for regular art duties.

And of course, whenever trouble befalls Wonder Woman, Strife is behind the scenes digging the knife further in. The story is as engaging as ever, and although I don't think Brian Azzarello has yet done Wonder Woman ...
