Wonder Woman: The Hiketeia
by Greg Rucka (writer), J.G. Jones (pencils), Wade von Grawbadger (inker), Dave Stewart (colorist)
Wonder Woman takes a sacred oath to defend a young woman, Danielle, unaware that she is pursued by Batman.
The use of ancient mythology adds value to the story and is quite appropriate given Wonder Woman's background.
The visual storytelling is quite excellent. It is nice to see that some writers know when to let the artist take over the storytelling duties. Some of the panels don't feel as dynamic or energetic looking as they aspire to be but overall this is a great read.
Overall: Great read. Highly recommended for anyone who is a fan of Greg Rucka or Wonder Woman.
