Wonder Woman #39

Wonder Woman #39 isn't bad, but it's certainly far from a must-read. The latest issue is heavy on action featuring Wonder Woman squaring off with the murderous new incarnation of Silver Swan. Every panel of our heroine is in battle with the former friend turned crazy super-villain. Or, to put it more appropriately, playing defense and refusing to fight the tormented girl up until the point that the new villain attacks Diana's brother Jason.

The rest of the issue catches up with Darkseid and his daughter Grail as they attempt to collect artifacts of power in a move to restore the former leader of Apokolips back to full-strength. This also offers short cameos for the Female Furies and for Steve Trevor and his men (who stand between Darkseid's minions and their bounty).

If you are already reading the series, issue #39 won't really have much impact, but for someone like me who hasn't picked up a Wonder Woman comic in months there isn't much here to inspire me to stick around and see how events play out. For fans.
