Wonder Woman #7

I often lament the lack of one-off super-hero stories. Give me a full story in a single issue and I'm happy. Everything these days gets geared to an arc to be easily bound together as a trade paperback with most of those stories, unfortunately, being often stretched beyond its limits. So I celebrate Wonder Woman giving us a fun little one-issue story of Wonder Woman and Superman shopping at a galactic mall for a birthday present for Batman. Sure, it's it he most bizarre and illogical place ever (in the middle of Wonder Woman's battle against Sovereign which is mostly ignored), but it's still a fun read.

The issue focuses on the Superman and Wonder Woman dynamic, and to a lesser extent their relationship with Batman. Fans of the characters should enjoy themselves here, including the choice of final gift, (even if its place in current events makes absolutely no sense).
