Wonder Woman #787 arrives fresh out of the Trial of the Amazons, and I don't know about you, but I still have many questions about what went on in the Trial, but even more about what didn't.  I kept seeing the Wonder Woman team of creators crowing about how big and essential the crossover was, but I guess some things got lost along the way because it didn't feel significant or even necessary by the end.  I would say, "you win some, you lose some," but Wonder Woman has been on a losing streak for quite some time.  Now that the crossover is over, maybe Cloonan and Conrad can right the ship and make this book good.  Let's see if that's the case...

The Rising is coming..... or is happening... I'm not quite sure, but what I do know is that President Bendix is creating an army of Post-Humans that he calls his Gamorra Corps and plans on selling his super-powered puppets to the highest bidders, but before any of that can really happen he has to knock our new Superman down a peg.... or knock him down completely and in doing so, we saw Jon framed for the murder of a Gamorra Corps member and if things couldn't look worse for Jon, Batman informed him at the end of the last issue that he couldn't trust his boyfriend, Jay Nakamura. Let's jump into this issue and see how our new Man of Steel handles all the problems on his plate. Let's check it out.

Let's head back to the Big Apple to see how Jace Fox is dealing with his defeat at the hands of New York's newest serial killer. The worst part about this is, that not only was Jace taken down a notch by this new villain but was humiliated in the process. Also, it turns out that this killer was inspired by Jace's arrival in New York and considered himself and Batman a team in cleaning up the trash of the city. So yeah, Jace isn't in the best place right now and it doesn't make it any better that because of his failure, the Commissioner became this killer's next target while our new Batman was busy licking his wounds. Let's jump into this issue and continue our look at this Batman figuring out who he is and how he operates in New York City. Let's check it out.
