In the end, Ares and Diana fight while Ares says over and over again how Wonder Woman isn't cut out to be the God of War, but eventually the fight is put to an end when Wonder Woman releases Typhoeus and we find out once again that you can't judge a book by its cover because even though this dragon like creature is known as the Father of Monsters, he's a big ol' teddy bear and flies Diana away from Ares and back to Hecate, where the Goddess of Witchcraft and Sorcery tells our hero that her next task will require her to go back to Themyscira so that she can use it's secret entrance to the underworld........ Tartarus.
That's it for this issue of Wonder Woman and even though the main story was all about shoving a moral down our throats with the whole "Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover" cliche, I have to say that I somehow found myself enjoying this issue more than I have the previous ones lately. The biggest problem with the issue is that it spent it's time just reiterating the same statements again and again. Besides that though, the art was fantastic and even though I think Wonder Woman is a dope for trusting Hecate, this wasn't a terrible issue and in my opinion, the backup featuring Donna Troy was worth the price tag alone........ Yeah, that backup suffered from Donna acting like Wonder Woman in that she kept saying the same things over and over again, but I really dug the story about her becoming Fate and what that ultimately means and like the rest of the book, the art was wonderful. Yeah, this book still has its problems, but it was at least fun........ and I just really loved the backup.
Bits and Pieces:
We continue our Wonder Woman trying to save Baby Zeke story with this over-sized fiftieth issue, but where this series has been a bit lackluster, I have to say that I liked this one a little more than usual, even though it was hurt by Wonder Woman stating the same things over and over again in what seemed like padding for the issue. We did get a really good backup though featuring Donna Troy so even though this issue still had its problems, it was enjoyable for the most part and the art looked great.
