Wonder Woman #182

Wonder Woman #182 (On Sale: March 4, 1969) has a nice actiony Mike Sekowsky and Dick Giordano cover. It could be better colored though.

"A Time to Love a Time to Die" is written and penciled by Mike Sekowsky and inked by Dick Giordano. It was pretty standard for Mike Sekowsky to start writing any of the books of which he took over the editorship. Continuing from last issue, Tim Trench abandons Diana and Ching in order to steal Doctor Cyber's gold. Diana and Ching are left to be killed by trained hawks. However, they are able to fight off the attacking birds and escape the mountain with the help of playboy Reginald Hyde-Whyte.

Reggie brings the pair to London where they try to ascertain Dr. Cyber's next enterprise. One of Cyber's agents attempts to kill Ching, but the blind man survives and brings a clue back to Diana.

Diana, Ching and Reggie head to the home of Lady Rothwell, an agent of Dr. Cyber. Rothwell is conducting a treasure hunt party for several wealthy women. Cyber plans to lure the women into a trap and steal their valuables. Diana finds her first, but Reggie betrays her, revealing himself as Cyber's agent. He allows Cyber to escape which prompts Diana into an angry rage. Betrayed by another man, Diana storms away. Reprinted in Diana Prince: Wonder Woman Vol. 1 TPB.

Edited by Mike Sekowsky.
