I did not realize how many great DC titles dropped this week. You can honestly do no wrong trying out any series this week, but definitely grab a copy of Wonder Woman #770.

I found myself enjoying the heck out of it. It’s got some amazing art and kicks off an intriguing story, I can’t wait to see where it goes from here!

The issue picks up seemingly after the events of Infinite Frontier #0, which isn’t essential reading for this title, with Diana coming to in the middle of a battle in Valhalla. You heard it right folks, Diana is in Valhalla and Cloonan and Conrad have set up such an interesting premise. Wonder Woman has reached a warrior’s paradise where people will go to battle every day and feast every night, with no fear of death as they’ll be resurrected. I loved reading Diana in this issue, while she’s still as heroic and as ferocious a fighter as ever, there’s a weight that’s lifted from her without the mantle of Wonder Woman. Not that she’s never fun, but I enjoyed the humor presented the longer she stayed in this realm. Also, the tension built with just waiting for the other shoe to drop was fantastic. We know something is off about this, but it’s so nice seeing Diana cut loose, make friends, and relax.

Oh man the art in this book is phenomenal! The depth to it all is amazing, and though Diana and Siggy are in constant combat, it never feels overwhelming, Moore and Bonvillain did an excellent job of capturing how freeing this must be for Diana. And props to Moore on the comedic timing of Diana’s expressions when transitioning from dream state.

The backup story is gorgeous, so vibrant in the way Themyscira is painted. Young Diana is adorable, and the story shows how deep a sense of community the Amazons have. Also, it adds a depth to Wonder Woman’s character with how rambunctious she was as a child.

If you're looking to add some Wonder Woman stories to your pull list this week, definitely check out this issue!
