Bonus Favorite Story: Wonder Woman #170
Written by Joe Kelly and Phil Jimenez, with astounding art by Jimenez, the tale never ceases to amaze me. Lois is suspicious by nature, and her portrayal here is dead on. What makes her such a great reporter also makes her a tad ruthless when it comes to Diana. On the other hand, Diana is trying to wade past recent events to establish a place for herself. With the abolition of the monarchy on Paradise Island, she is no longer a princess, and the lack of tiara makes Lois' reporter radar go off like crazy.
What makes this issue stand out so much is the range of humanity shown. Lois tries to decide which cards to play while finding that Diana is more "human" then she ever could have considered. The discussions that the women have and the spot-on narration by Lois make this more then just a stand-alone issue.
If you get a chance, give this a read. It is a treat for any Wonder Woman fan.
