Wonder Woman: The Hiketeia - Wade Von Grawbadger, Dave Stewart, Greg Rucka, J.G. Jones For some reason I don't read Wonder Woman regularly, even though she is exactly the kind of character I love best: an unapologetic, strong-willed, opinionated, bad-ass woman. In this comic, a young woman begs for Wonder Woman's protection, and she grants it. WW speaks with a precise, antiquated style that I love, particularly in contrast to the colloquial speech around her. Her life is one of service and duty--and she likes it that way. The demands placed upon her by hospitality and honor place her in direct opposition to Batman. A series of fuck yeah moments ensue. I nearly fist-pumped while reading, but caught myself just in time.
