‘Wonder Woman: Come Back to Me #6’ (review)

Written by Amanda Conner
and Jimmy Palmiotti
Art by Tom Derenick
Published by DC Comics

 

If Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti have proved one thing, it’s their boundless ability to tack on new and exciting plot points with each passing issue without it feeling contrived or overproduced.

Wonder Woman discovered Princess Sibbella’s cruel deception, only to encounter the exact origin of that deception; caused by the omnipotent Lords of Light. The Lords are energy wielding beings that consume all matter. The inclusion of these characters provided an extra level of tension to the story because, for as powerful as Wonder Woman is, how could she defeat God-like beings?

Well, the answer is pretty clever and was entertaining to see unfold as Conner and Palmiotti applied Diana’s brains and brawn to solve the problem.

Tom Derenick’s artwork remained wonderfully consistent throughout the series. The animated series vibe coupled with great splash pages and bombastic illustrations were fun to examine and ensured that if the script didn’t get you, the artwork would.

One of the things that stood about this finale is that the death of minor and nameless characters was addressed, which added to how deeply Wonder Woman expressed her value for life. Most times, these types of fatalities are considered unspoken collateral damage.

Here, it’s used in a way that is just right. Not too heavy and injected with a little bit of humor to top it off. Conner and Palmiotti produced a satisfying conclusion that provided one more vital element to round out the series. Wonder Woman’s ongoing series is geared toward serious affairs. However, this creative team proved with Come Back to Me they can tell a thoughtful tale with amusing elements that won’t get lost in translation.

Rating: B
