Comic Review: Wonder Woman #23

Wonder Woman #23 Cliff Chiang New 52

The bracelets come off as it’s Diana, Orion and War in an all-out brawl with the First Born in Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang’s Wonder Woman #23.

This whole issue is a gigantic fight scene, but that doesn’t mean it’s all punch ’em up. The First Born lays a thumping on Orion and takes War to the edge, forcing Diana to decide just how far she wants to go to win the day.

Azzarello writes Wonder Woman #23 with his typically wonderful mix of mythology and modern storytelling, but it’s Chiang’s artwork that shines brightest.

Chiang makes this book gorgeous and gritty from cover to cover. There’s a whole lot of darkness and grey like you’d see in a Batman comic, but Chiang imbues his pages with a style that’s unmistakably Wonder Woman. It always feels a little bit like looking at the pictures on the side of an ancient Greek urn.

Wonder Woman #23 continues to propel Azzarello’s story forward and refuses to settle into a status quo. There’s more tragedy, more responsibility and more unknowns in this issue, making it yet another fantastic installment in the New 52 Wonder Woman.
