Covergirl: The red + blue + white stars brought the Dukes of Hazzard to mind, which I guess is somewhat appropriate as Wonder Woman wears even less clothing to fight evil than Daisy wore to wait tables.

Ramble: We’ve gone from believing Medusa to be a covert and nefarious organization snaking its way into the creepy crawly Gotham underworld, to the realization that Medusa is one being, ironically and appropriately statuesque. I like that she began as a broad, big concept and ends as a single self. The narrowing pleases.
The devil on my right shoulder enjoyed Medusa’s evil plans coming to fruition, while the angel on my left got verklempt during the Pegasus section. (My left shoulder angel bears a striking resemblance to Linda Richman.)
I don’t usually tear up during a comic book, but Pegasus grabbed me. His abused body, with violent holes where his marvelous wings once were, saddened me nearly to the point of tears. Wonder Woman too: After she grants him mercy via slicing Pegasus degraded head off with her merciful sword she sheds a superheroic droplet.
I don’t need to say the art rocked. Rolled. Ruled. But I will say it because I aim for 500 words with these posts and I’m only at 228.
