OK, the end of this one makes all the difference. Enough so that I am going to have to use a spoiler in this review, something I always try to avoid doing.
First off, the one new story in this issue is not a Justice League story, it’s a Wonder Woman one. That seems to be the format for the Walmart Justice Leagues. It’s not something I am crazy about, I would prefer an actual Justice League story, but I am learning to live with it.
This tale has Wonder Woman and Etta Candy fly off together to hunt for Steve Trevor, whose plane has gone missing. It’s mostly action, very dynamic visually, and good for what it is. It doesn’t aim too high, story wise, but also doesn’t disappoint.
Now for the spoiler.
On the final page, Wonder Woman and Etta find a giant leopard wearing Steve Trevor’s plane around its neck. This visual immediately reminded me of one of the cliffhangers from the Kamandi Challenge. I know I am almost certainly wrong in hoping this will tie into that series, but the prospect excited me. Clearly enough that I felt the need to talk about it here.
Now I am going to argue against it. These are out of continuity tales, so far as I can tell, and so was the Kamandi Challenge. Not to mention that the Kamandi stuff was set far in the future. So I must be wrong, I have to be.
But even if I am, the possibility enlivened a run of the mill story into something that piqued my interest.
