Wonder Woman: Agent of Peace #5 Review

The Truth...

Writer: Van Jensen, Scott Kolins
Artist: Scott Kolins, Jheremy Raapack
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: May 20, 2020

This issue of Wonder Woman Agent of Peace is an odd one.  Two stories for the price of one and the cost of one is still only 99 cents!  So, do you get a double bang for your buck here?  Let's find out...

Van Jensen and Jheremy Raapack are up first with a quick Wonder Woman/Deadshot story.  I am a fan of Van Jensen and am glad to see him doing stuff at DC Comics again, but there isn't much room for him to tell his story.  Wonder Woman finds out Floyd is in town with a few days to kill, and she has to stop him.  There is some misdirect, good interaction between Diana and Deadshot, and a part that shows Wonder Woman protects everyone.  Overall, it is nice but ends too soon to get its hooks into the reader.  The art is excellent, though, and I love Raapack's character models so much.

The second story lets Scott Kollins do double duty, writing and drawing a Steve Trevor story.  I love Steve Trevor and will read anything focusing on him, but it ends up being a generic, albeit sweet, tale.  I like the villains, and the art has a gritty feel that fits the story, but the narration was a bit heavy-handed, and there are no real surprises or anything we haven't seen before a bunch of times.  

This one is hard to put a score on.  If you want to know if this issue is worth the 99 cent cost, it is.  You get two stories that won't blow your mind, but the art is excellent in both.  If you are looking for something that you will think about after reading and return to again, you might be disappointed.

Bits and Pieces:

Wonder Woman: Agent of Peace #5 gives you two okay stories with great art.  It's worth the 99 cent cost of admission, but don't expect to come back to this one once you are done reading it.
