A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 111
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we conclude a three-part look at three notable cool moments from the Wonder Woman graphic novel by Greg Rucka and JG Jones titled Wonder Woman: The Hiketeia
When last we left our heroes, Batman just used the same Greek ritual of protection that a young woman had used to gain protection from Wonder Woman after committing four homicides (the woman feels that they were justifiable, because the men she killed had killed her sister – Batman might even agree with her, but he feels it is for the courts to decide – Wonder Woman is unsure what to do, as well).
The Greek Fates are hanging around, as well, as they told Wonder Woman where the woman ran off to, because they get a kick out of seeing human tragedy unfold, and what happens next is a regular Greek tragedy…
“The” moment, I think, has to either be when Wonder Woman and Batman realize that the woman is killing herself to unburden Wonder Woman or perhaps the very end, where we see how the tragedy has shaken Wonder Woman.
Anyhow, good stuff by Rucka. He would take over the Wonder Woman title soon after this graphic novel.
