@Derishton hit it on the nail about the art. Cliff Chiang's art isn't for everyone, but it fits the tonal structure of the story and it is slightly cartoony. It is almost like a grittier Frank Quietly. I don't think what we saw happen at the end of issue 8 has happened to Diana before. One of the great things about this book is that Diana has been making mistakes, and been distracted because of learning about her true heritage and dealing with it. I knew Hades was going to trick her, that's kind of what he does to get his own way. Next month should be awesome.
