Wonder Woman 74
Diana closes in on answers to the fate of her lost sisters in dimension Chi. She finds things have changed since she last left the realm. Atlantiades and Maggie provide emotional and literal support as Diana faces off against her mother's dark mirror -- the Empress Hippolyta. At long last, the fate of Themyscira is revealed as is the enemy she must face. Along the way, the mystery of Maggie's sword is revealed and old friends are reunited. The stage is set for the extra-sized anniversary issue in two weeks.
The mystery of Themyscira’s disappearance has taken a left turn into dimension Chi and with an alternate version of the amazons. Artistically, the issue continues its top-notch performance. The story is continuing at a good pace, but is starting to stall in some places, once again relying primarily on an extended fight scene to fill most of the issue.
Maggie is becoming more and more of an incidental character, her growth seeming to stall and her connection to the sword basically brushed aside. The story is still interesting but it feels like it has lost some of the momentum the book has been gaining for the past few issues. It could that Wilson is saving her energy up for the milestone issue next time, we will see in two weeks where everything is leading.
This issue had a lot of action, but not a lot of substance. Overall a good issue, but I'm hoping that next issue will give more substance to Themyscira's story.
