Myth Busters


B.P.R.D.: The Black Goddess #4

There’s an awful lot of back-and-forth going on here. Johann Kraus is sneaking into the hidden city, dragons are aiding the soldiers and warrior monks against the frogs and sub-humans and giant bugs, and Memnan Saa tells stories of ancient myths to rationalize his plans to save only a tiny portion of humanity from the invaders.

Verdict: Thumbs down. The fight scenes are good, and Memnan Saa has one very good badass moment, but this story has been going on for a long, long time, and it should’ve been over by now.


Wonder Woman #31

Well, Hippolyta’s former honor guard allies itself with Ares, while Wonder Woman gets weepy about Etta Candy and gets comforted by Dr. T.O. Morrow, of all people. Achilles and his crazy Greek dudes attack the UN, and a nurse gets possessed by Athena to prophesy various dooms and reveal that Genocide is actually the future dead body of Wonder Woman herself. Wondy also smacks Achilles around a little and then punches out a nuclear bomb.

Verdict: Thumbs down. Even the bit with the nuke ended up dull, and the rest of it was really beyond boring. This is another story that has gone on way, way too long.
