Solo books are on a roll this week -that includes female solo books; now the turn is for the amazon warrior's title to kick butt. During Wonder Woman's decisive fight against Hera and Apollo for the life of Zola and her unborn baby, three rocking moments close the first year of the series on the highest note. There is no easy way to sing this issue's praises without spoiling its contents, but it is worth it, so here it goes. Diana flies. Seeing the amazon princess finally take flight is the most welcome sight; it's as if the entire year of stories had been leading to this glorious instant; it is fantastic. The bracelets. This new aspect of Wonder Woman's might is the biggest surprise of all; completely unexpected and revealed in the most dramatic fashion. The betrayal. This issue has so many twists and turns that a chiropractor is recommended afterwards; Birth Right gives a new meaning to the term backstabbing. All this, plus Cliff Chiang's amazing pencils, and a BOOM!
