Artemis: Wanted

The one-shot Artemis: Wanted clears up the past events of the Amazon on the run as Donna Troy and Cassie Sandsmark track down Artemis for her murder of Hippolyta (an action the spirit of Hippolyta reveals was part of a larger plan). While Donna is out for blood, the younger Wonder Girl wants answers. There's also the story of the town where the Amazons find Artemis, where a former Amazon and her daughter are caught up in a curse along with the rest of the townspeople.

While I don't think you needed an over-sized issue to tell this tale, the comic does what it sets out to (with quite a bit of exposition in the middle with a literally deus ex machina spelling things out for us including suggesting the roles for all three woman going forward amongst the Amazons) and returns not just Artemis to the Amazons but Freya and her daughter as well.
