This issue, artist Tony Akins gamely fills in for Cliff Chiang, who you may remember drew the Japanese Justice League. I really enjoy Akins' Cerberus — a three-headed hellhound isn't something I'd normally describe as adorable. Wonder Woman #6 comes out next Wednesday, February 15. Here's the plot synopsis:
