    "Prayer" - Worth the price for Scott's art.

    "Amazing" - Decent, though I felt we already had a "child looks up to Diana" story like this in the previous one.

    "Whatever Happened to Cathy Perkins?" - Hmm, surprisingly decent send up of the Mod era.

    "Love Failed" - Heh, so Hypnota founded Scientology.

    "Wing Woman" - Decent and fun enough, though like I said, I think you see this kind of plot for a lot of superheroes who date back to the Golden Age.

    "Prayer" was definitely my favorite. Nicola Scott KILLED that art. The misplaced speech bubble bugs me more than it should though. I hope it's fixed for the collected version.

    "Amazing" was fine. I grow a bit tired of these stories that play with children and gender since they're never really mind-blowing or bring anything new to the table. Giganta in her 40's look is nice, but again, she's just used as fodder.

    "Whatever Happened to Cathy Perkins?" was great. I loved seeing Cathy again and the whole love letter to the Mod era. And I can't believe they brought back spoilers:
    Them!
    end of spoilers

    "Love Failed" was my second favorite. The art took some getting used to, but Hypnota was scary as hell and I love any time a writer comes on and does something new/different with these classic rogues.

    "Wing Woman" was probably my least favorite. It was decent, but nothing noteworthy. We get it, Diana's inspirational. I wish more would be done with these stories, but I get that it's tough with only a few pages allotted to each creative team.

    Only read "Prayer" and "Love Failed" so far. The former is gorgeous as always, the latter was...odd, but certainly an interesting use of Hypnota. Which is always a good thing.

    I like most of these tales. Would this be more satisfying if there only three stories instead of five? Sometimes the “story” is just one scene and I’m left feeling underwhelmed.

    I got a kick out of that splash page in”Wing Woman” where Diana takes out the Nazi. With all those stars as a backdrop I can just hear the 70s theme song as musical score in my head—“Wondaa Womaaan!!”
    I only support clay origins.

    “Amazons do know how to party”—Diana, Princess of Themyscira

    I refuse to live in a world where Mouse Man doesn't have his little mouse ears on his cowl.

    Wow, I didn't really know Alamy was such a good artist!

    I am hyped for Busiek and Campbell stories.

    I got a chance to read it early and all I can say is Trung Le Nguyen's "Memories of Hator" is my favorite B&G story so far. By a lot.
