September is Zero
month at DC, the perfect opportunity to see the trinity -or ternion-
of wonders once again prior to its fall. Told from the point of view
of Terry Sloane, who was a wonder himself, the story takes place a
year before the deaths of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. Rather
than leaving readers with dangling questions until the end of time,
Robinson reveals some mysteries while creating new ones, like the
identity of the seventh wonder.
The issue plants
seeds for future storylines, and even opens the door to potential
interactions with the main Earth; it also has some surprises, like
the truth of what happened to Italy. Sloane's narration of the
events defines in a solid fashion his personality, thought process,
and role in the title. Although the issue defers the first arc of
the series, it is a great read, and worth the interruption.
