They Have Cyclops on Their Side
I never read Amazons Attack!, as I was just coming back to monthly comics after an extended stay and had been warned well away from it. It can likely be chalked up to the whole phenomenon of most writers/editors not knowing what to do with Wonder Woman as a character, and her world in general. Is it me, or does ANY story involving Amazons smell of commentary on the female gender as a whole? And could we then not infer some kind of sexual (or at least gender-based) frustration coming from DC's decision makers? (I can't blame the writer because this was certainly an editorially mandated assignment.) Am I reading too much into something I haven't actually read?
