Overall: While trying to ferry a few Amazons to safety, Wonder Woman runs into some creatures called Keres, whose job seemed to be to take the souls of the dead and dying and send them to the afterlife. WW decides to interfere, which cause her to get sent to the underworld... Whoops! While in the afterlife, WW finds herself at the River Styx and meets Charon, who tells her she didn't belong there and explains to her the way out. WW fights her way through those annoying Keres again, and arrives at the doorway out of the underworld, which was protected by the three-headed dog, Cerberus. For some reason Cerberus seems to like WW, and lays down before her, giving her a clear path out of the underworld and back to her body. Upon awakening, WW finds herself and the Amazons surrounded by dozens of solders, who offer the Amazons safe passage and a boat to freedom, provided WW faces the man who killed her mother and stole the magic lasso of truth. WW gladly accepts, and the Amazons escape. This issue ends with WW preparing to meet the man responsible for the death of her mother and the destruction of Paradise Island.
Hey, you know what? This was the first issue of JMS's WW run that I liked! The story was fun and rather simplistic, with WW battling the Keres and having to fight her way out of the underworld, and the ending left me interested in getting my hands on the next issue. Sure, I'm still not totally sold on this storyline, but this issue was a major step in the right direction.
Score: 7 1/2 out of 10.Umm, nice doggie?
