Publisher’s Summary: Wonder Woman’s mother is missing and so is Aphrodite’s son! Together, they’ll turn the world upside down to find them…if the world doesn’t get turned upside down by a pack of wayward Titans first! By far the biggest survivors of the decimation of Olympus have taken up residence in Rocky Mountain National Park, and they’re not moving!
It’s never a dull moment for Wonder Woman. Called away from her search for her mother, the Amazon comes up against not one, but two Titans. There’s only one woman capable of helping Wonder Woman, but will she assist our hero to save the day?
Wonder Woman (2016-) #66 brings the story back to my favorite troop of misfit characters. In case you’re wondering, they’re still displaced, but they are in good spirits. What made Wonder Woman (2016-) #66 a particularly delightful read was the layering of stories. G. Willow Wilson meticulously weaves between the displaced mythical creatures’ and Wonder Woman’s storylines. In doing so, Wilson adds depth to the overall series. The consequences of the last story arc remain at the forefront of the reader’s mind, mirroring the tension Wonder Woman experiences as she searches for answers and solutions.
Of course, I can’t forget Giganta. If Wonder Woman is the physical embodiment of being larger than life, Giganta is the literal representation. The dynamic between the two is superb. This is the second long-time rival Wilson has paired up with Wonder Woman, and I’m curious to see how this team-up will end.
Cary Nord’s art wonderfully really brings the issue home. From the dueling Titans to the Wonder Woman-Giganta team-up, Nord’s art is detailed and expressive. Just as Wilson’s script connects readers to Wonder Woman’s struggle, the art captures all the nuanced emotions in the issue.
The Bottom Line
Wonder Woman (2016-) #66 is an action-packed, entertaining issue; G. Willow Wilson crafts another fantastic issue, fraught with difficult decisions for our hero.
