  1. I hope Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang are on this series for the long haul.

  2. This story and art is fun. Seems like it’s always a good time to hop on this book!

  3. Still my favourite DC book.

  4. Great cover.

  5. This has been good from the start, but it feels like it has went up a notch these past couple issues.

  6. This is my fave book DC puts out at the moment. Read the preview and it looks as good as always.

  7. enjoyed the issue… interesting ending. thought it was slightly rushed, but still good. Looking forward to the aftermath.
    Art was ace as always.

  8. Terrific issue. A perfect ending. I can’t wait to see where we go from here.


    • Feels like we’re finally gaining some momentum. Not that I haven’t loved the storyline so far, but the same basic one has gone on for quite a long while.


    Holy F! They just did that. Wonder Woman is now the god of war. So bad ass. I love this series.

  10. KABOOM.

    The mythological soap opera continues…

  11. I really want to start reading this series monthly, as of now I’m buying the paperback trades, and am wondering if issue 24 seems like it would be a good jump on point. The solicit for 24 makes it sound as if it is. I would plan on buying the trades to fill in the gap too. I’m also specifically wondering the series is better if I read from the beginning? What does everyone think?

    • This series definitely needs to be read from the beginning. But that’s not a bad thing- in fact, I envy anyone who reads this from the beginning for the first time. It is a sheer joy to consume.

  12. It was very cool to see War’s army. I don’t want to say much more because I don’t want to ruin this issue for anyone else. There were just so many great creative ideas on display here. Top notch issue in a top notch series.

  13. Loved it! And boy, am I curious to see where they go from here…

    (Which means Azzarello and/or Chiang will be gone soon. I can totally feel it.)

  14. I didn’t think it was amazing but still really good. But with the review on IGN I was expecting too much maybe? Having said that I wonder if I’d think differently if I read the whole series back to back. Now where at the end of the second year.


    I’m feeling dumb right now: why was spearing through War the only path? Was this to be metaphorical? Because she could have walked around the two and speared the target in the back.

    Feelin’ dense, -TODD


      I believe the thing is, they establish (somewhere) that whomever kills War will inherit his title and power. Diana saw that War was dying and that the First Born was about to finish him off, and she couldn’t let him power up like that – so she killed War herself, skewering him AND the First Born with the one move – defeating the threat but also reluctantly becoming God(dess) of War herself.
