The Perils of Diana
Seriously though, this cover really took my by surprise. It's been a long time since I've seen Wonder Woman depicted this way. It reminds me of an old cover where she has a gun to her head and she's flinching and sweating. Now honestly, if I had a gun to my head I'd freak out, but Wonder Woman? No way. At least in this picture she's facing the noose like a champ. But it's the kink factor that makes the whole thing interesting. The artist had to know what he was doing. It's certainly eye-catching, I'll say that. Oh, and that little guy with the candles on his head is Hades. He's interesting looking too, but in a goofy way. It'll be interesting to see how much the inside of the issue matches up with the cover. I'm betting not much. But it'll definitely have people picking it up for a look.
