Publisher’s Summary: “Our heroes have received some bad intel. Now they have to navigate a murderous maze crawling with mythical monsters, and help their renegade sister stop Tezcatlipoca-since they were the ones who unwittingly unleashed it!”


Review:

Wonder Woman and team battle it out with the Tezcatlipoca. Unable to defeat the god alone, the trio of heroes must combine their forces to take down the corrupt Tezcatlipoca. But what’s in store for Wonder Woman, both in the battle and after?

Wonder Woman (2016-) #53 is a great wrap-up of the previous issue and introduction into the next story arc. Steve Orlando writes a stellar script, with punchy lines, layers of kick-ass banter, and a terrific battle scene. Orlando builds just enough tension in the issue to keep a steady pace, but releases it at just the right moment so readers have a couple pages of cool down before the conclusion.

ACO and Hugo Petrus’s art is amazing, with heavily detailed panels depicting the fight between the three heroines and Tezcatlipoca. However, the pair also seamlessly transition between intense battle scenes and the cool flight to Themyscira, using subtle changes in style and color.

The Bottom Line:

Another great issue! Wonder Woman (2016-) #53 is an intense, free-fall ride as Wonder Woman and team battle Tezcatlipoca. Steve Orlando’s script is fresh and flawless and ACO and Hugo Petrus’s art fills in the details with visually stunning panels.

The Bottom Line
Another great issue! Wonder Woman (2016-) #53 is an intense, free-fall ride as Wonder Woman and team battle Tezcatlipoca. Steve Orlando’s script is fresh and flawless and ACO and Hugo Petrus’s art fills in the details with visually stunning panels.
