Wonder Woman: Black & Gold #6

The concluding issue of Wonder Woman: Black & Gold offers five more tales of Wonder Woman's adventures in black and white, with a splash of gold. The six-issue mini-series ends on more of whimper than a bang. My favorite of the bunch, "Attack of the 50-Foot Wonder Woman," swaps the powers between Giganta and and out-of-control giant Wonder Woman who her adversary has to find a way to talk down.

"Role Model" showcases Wonder Woman's generational impact on the women of the world by highlighting her relationship with an old friend who has grown into her role of a Congresswoman years later. In "The Prophet" the adventures of an exiled Amazon Berchta returns to Themyscira as told through the fevered visions of someone dreaming Wonder Woman in another world.

"A Lesson in Truth" offers a hostage situation involving a man with a gun who himself was hostage as a kid that Diana saved but now questions everything about the world. And in "Fresh Air in Philly" Diana is imprisoned by Poseidon and rescued by Nubia.
