I'm not a fan of the overarching storyline, with the Bana-Mighdal, which might be part of the problem. I give Jimenez huge credit for at least writing Diana's personality (and Donna's, for that matter) in a way that makes sense. I wish I didn't feel like I had to give bonus points for a writer apparently understanding the character he writes... The last issue included here is a one-off story, with Lois Lane following Diana around for a day. It's supposedly narrated by Lois's internal monologue, but it felt... off. There were times (Lois waxing poetic about how Diana smelled, for example) when I was very aware that these were not the natural thoughts of a female journalist, but written by a male comic book writer. But other than that, it was a fairly good character sketch of Diana. Her crush on Trevor Barnes was adorable. But I'm completely baffled as to why she'd confess her home country's state to Lex Luthor, president or no.
