Wonder Woman #794 unveils the grand threat behind the International Milk Company's machinations, signaling the dawn of a new age for the gods of Olympus and the entire Earth.

Is It Good?

Oof! Wonder Woman #794 is a Grade-A stinker. Between the terrible dialog and the bizarre premise, elevated only by the art, it's hard to know where this issue goes wrong.

When last we left Wonder Woman, Cizko was dealt with, the Brazilian Lab was shut down, and the contaminated milk supply was exposed. Now, Etta sends Cheetah and Siegfried on a recon mission to investigate the International Milk Company's (IMC's) main production facility. The guards are tipped off when the duo arrives, and a creamy, milky battle ensues. Suddenly, the Greek gods Phobos and Deimos churn forth from the milk vats (I'm not kidding) to join the fight. Suddenly, again, Wonder Woman crashes through the ceiling to join the fight.

In effect, Cheetah, Siegfried, and Wonder Woman invade a milk factory with the laziest name in history to battle with Greek gods made of milk.

Through Phobos and Deimos's boasts, we learn it was Hera orchestrating the milk supply's poisoning to make regular humans and super beings slaves to her will.

The premise is just plain silly, and the dialog is stilted, stiff, and inorganic
Thankfully, Lupacchino and von Grawbadger supply art good enough to elevate the script beyond any level it has a right to achieve. Bellaire's colors are bold, and the overall look of the issue is good.

Bits and Pieces

Wonder Woman #794 continues the moldering milk misadventures with goofy milk battles and the reveal of a plan by the gods of Mt. Olympus to take over the world. The premise is goofy, and the dialog is terrible, but the art is serviceable.
