Great Hera does this book deliver!

Remember when Joss Whedon was connected to bringing Wonder Woman to the silver screen. This feels like what it would be like. Cliff Chang’s pencils are cinematic. Every panel is alive and evocative. I stare at one panel and like any good work of art I am traveling within the image. It’s hard to judge the story but so far so very good. Woman Wonder is used well here. She is a warrior, a force, a hero. But it’s the world Azzarello has constructed around her that will make this strong. It seems as though Azzarello is exploring mythologies in the DCU – an area that probably serves the best from a reboot. This is a fantastic, action-packed start for a character who’s long due for a story deserved of her stature.

  1. I was really let down by this book. The only real origin of wonder woman i’ve known was the dc animated dvd that came out 3 years ago. i was excited to see a new spin on ww, what i got was an action packed book with very little story. this suffers from the exact oppisite problem Grifter had. grifter was heavy on story and light on action, this was way heavy on blood guts and gore action but had no story. why do these dc relaunch books just assume we know these characters?? this was a story about some girl being knocked up by an evil god more than ww. i’ll give this a few more issues, but so far i’m very let down by a book i was really looking forward to.

  2. Thanks for reading my review. I see your points about there not being much to the characterization of Wonder Woman but plenty of stories don’t immediately start with the origins with the characters.

    All you need to know is Wonder Woman is the hero. The other questions are intended to entice readers to pick up the next issue. All will be explained (I hope).
