365 Comics...243: Wonder Woman # 23 (2013)

On, wow.  Didn't see that one coming at all.  I love this book.

A spoiler filled interview with Azzarello from hitfix revealed some interesting bits about the brightest of the original New 52.:

By not being so tied to the ongoing continuity of the New 52 ... does that allow you and Cliff the flexibility to tell the stories that you want to tell?

We're allowed to do it because we're doing something right. [Laughs] We pitched this thing, this story, and we're following the pitch. We're not surprising editorial. We're doing what we set out to do. We're on a mission.

How long will the mission last? Do you have an end date to your run on "Wonder Woman" planned?

[Laughs] You'll have to wait. I don't want to give you a number, but I do have an ending.

Aw, I don't want it to end, heh.

And that's one of the best covers of the series...

"ALL of them."

That's one of the delights of this comic: the various deities aren't depicted like "Ares-Man with the power of fighting", he is the personification of the abstract concept of war. Granted, one could then ask how it's possible to wage war against war, but I suppose that has more to do with his opponents being gods and demigods.
