The Dark Pantheon are here.......... or the Dark Gods as they're called in this issue, and it's up to Wonder Woman to get to the bottom of what that actually means.  Too bad she has to go through Supergirl to find out.  Let's jump into this issue and see what the broken Source Wall has brought us this time and if it's too much for Wonder Woman and her brother Jason to handle.  Let's check it out.

While the initial idea of Wonder Woman going up against Supergirl got my imagination running, the outcome of that fight in this issue is just.......... you guessed it, a fight and while the visuals are pretty cool, for what we get out of it here, it's just kind of overblown and pointless.  That being said, we do get a lot of answers though when it comes to Jason and his mysterious armor so thankfully, this issue wasn't a total loss in weeding out some of the mysteries that we have in this series. 

I just wish that we understood better why certain people in the world were going crazy with the ideas of their own personal gods being dead so that they could welcome in the Dark Gods to their world.  Yeah, not much on that front and sadly, by the end of this issue the story takes a complete left turn that leaves me wondering what the hell is going on with this title.  While what's going to happen is yet to be determined, this issue for what it was at least kept my interest going and kept the idea that I have that we're on some sort of right path from where we were previously and it's a path that I don't mind continuing down, I just hope that from what we get as our cliffhanger that I don't go and eat my words going forward.  Overall, the fight in this issue was a bit extensive and didn't lead to much, but we had enough going on for the rest of the issue that kept me interested and it didn't hurt that I loved the art here.

Bits and Pieces:

While the story going forward might get a little crazy in what we're dealing with and how our title character will be a part of it, this issue for what it was was mostly enjoyable and gave us some of the answers we've been looking for.  The art was great throughout and while I might be regretting this later on, right now I'm interested in where the story's going and looking forward to the next issue.

  1. I would've gone higher. Maybe a 7.5 or so. But I'm not as negative as Eric Shea...
