Wonder Woman #41
James Robinson kicked off a new arc, Amazons Attacked, which didn’t really feature a lot of Amazons attacked. It did provide an excuse to let Wonder Woman loose against a variety of opponents.
Robinson took an interesting approach having Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor casually discussing their day. For Wonder Woman, that entailed dealing with a series of new threats assembled by a longtime foe. This was the main area I wish Robinson took a different approach as he kinda blew off some potentially fun mid-tier villains to focus on more conversations with Diana and Trevor. It’s not so much that their relationship is a problem, but Robinson isn’t doing anything to make it interesting. The ‘how was your day, honey?’ approach lacked much of a spark and just came off somewhat boring.
Stephen Segovia provided the art this issue. For an A-list title, Wonder Woman doesn’t have much consistency with a regular artist. It seems every issue there’s a new artist handling the book. Segovia is a quality artist who has a good sense of storytelling, but his pages aren’t especially exciting.
That’s pretty much this issue in a nutshell. There’s nothing inherently wrong with it, but it doesn’t provide much incentive to get it if you haven’t already been reading Wonder Woman. Hopefully, the reveal at the end leads to more exciting future developments. As is, the book is in need of something to shake up the status quo.
