Pick of the Week — Wonder Woman #200

By Tug Baker

If you don’t know it already, Wonder Woman is without a doubt one of the best books coming out right now. Starting with issue # 195, the series was given a well-needed shot in the arm by new writer Greg Rucka (Gotham Central, Queen & Country). This week, Wonder Woman # 200 not only wraps up Rucka’s incredible first story arc, “Down to Earth,” but also celebrates the past, present, and future of Wonder Woman.

Everything comes crashing down in this final issue of the story, and through some highly adept storytelling by Rucka and artist Drew Johnson, we get a fast-paced cinematic ending to this great story. Not to spoil too much, but Wonder Woman has a showdown with the new and improved Silver Swan, and Zeus and Hera’s domestic disputes (given a little nudge by Ares) change the lives of the Amazons forever.

Whether or not you’ve been reading Wonder Woman, this issue leads nicely into the next storyline and will make you want to keep on reading (and maybe even find some of those back issues). Wonder Woman hasn’t been this good in years. Don’t miss it!

Wonder Woman # 200 is a 64-page, double-sized issue published by DC Comics with a cover price of $3.95.
