Wonder Woman #614 review

It’s been the longest storyline in Wonder Woman history, and possibly the worst. Despite bright spots from writer Phil Hester, J Michael Straczynski’s Odyssey has been a mess, trying to ‘fix’ the character not by focusing on what originally made her popular back in the Forties – a mix of  fantasy and reality, a dose of […]
