Review

"This is clear storytelling at its best....It's an intriguing concept and easy to grasp. The reader doesn't need to know that much about Wonder Woman because she is, well, Wonder Woman." - "The New York Times
"
"Azzarello is...rebuilding the mythology of Wonder Woman." - "Maxim"
"Azzarello is crafting a highly-intelligent, and surprisingly gory, affair that's drenched in Greek mythology and godly mischief. And if that's not enough, artist Cliff Chiang simply kills it on every panel he touches. Put your presumptions aside because this is actually a Wonder Woman book worth reading." - "Complex Magazine"
"This series will hopefully elevate Diana back into the limelight with Superman and Batman where she belongs." - "Christian Science Monitor"
"Beautifully illustrated and brings a fresh, fascinating and fun take to the Amazon Princess and her world." - "IGN"
"It's a different direction for Wonder Woman, but one still steeped in mythology...great things from Azzarello and Chiang." - "The Onion AV Club
"
"Enthralling." - "UGO
"
"This book is weird and worth your while." - "io9
"
"It's the kind of writing that's made Azzarello such a sought after comic book author." - "CraveOnline"
"Brian Azzarello is going for a much more horror-oriented book than previous incarnations, and that works well with Cliff Chiang's art. In fact, they're probably one of the best paired teams for the New 52 so far." - "Comic Book Resources"
"Page after page, Azzarello just unfurls more and more smart ideas in what is probably the best hope for the great Wonder Woman story we've all been hoping for. Unsurprisingly, Cliff Chiang delivers some phenomenal visuals, presenting us with a heroine who reads as dynamic, elegant, powerful, and even godly. People, I think they've figured it out." - "iFanboy""

This is what they call a turn up for the books. A mature and sophisticated story without any spandex.

Although it features Wonder Woman, and she is our primary guide through the narrative, a single lassoing and bracer parry doesn't make it feel like she is indispensible. It is more about the machinations of the Greek gods - whom it turns out Diana has more of a relationship with than you thought - and notably Zeus' rampant promiscuity. Poseidon, Hades, and all your favourites from Clash of the Titans are here but you don't need a major in the classics to eventually work out who is who.

The whole thing feels, and also looks, very Sandman; from its immortal characters and literary references to its particular art style. The Greeks certainly knew how to spin a good yarn and using established myths to craft a tale with modern resonance all about family is sheer genius. There aren't many laughs but they appear where appropriate. Drama is king here.

There isn't too much characterisation or lengthy exposition. You begin in medias res and the whirlwind of people you meet usually appear cryptic or reserved. This gives a great feeling of `trust no one' as there is both a child's life and the throne of heaven at stake. There is a human character for us to latch on to who, despite being the maguffin that drives the plot along, is a genuinely likeable, witty person that we can easily take a shine to.

This being an origin story and part of a reboot we do have bases to cover so there is skipping between heaven, earth and the secret Amazon homeland along with dramatic revelations and re-revelations about back-story. The Wonder Woman here feels nothing like the Diana of JLA and there is certainly no mention of Captain Trevor.

I have a new faverite from the New 52. I have never been a huge Wonder Woman fan, but thanks to the fan fare and appearances on Batman and Superman, I got glimpses into more of her new characters. I really like the more warrior themes version of the characters. I love the Greek mythology theme/plot of the story. The only slight criticism I have about the story is the art work is nit my faverite style, but it does seem to fit the story so even that is a moot critic.

Wonder Woman comes to the aid of a woman needing protection from the Queen of the Greek Gods. If you know anything about Greek Mythology Zeus was known for his infidelities. Guess what he is at it again, this time the mother of his child to be has a warrior Amazon on her side. However saving Zola Diana learns about her own secret family history. It comes with all the cover galleries in colour inbetween issues. I love this series I can't wait for the next volume.

There is a huge amount fantastically right with this novel. Azzarello, of 100 Bullets fame, has conceived and delivered a compelling and relevant re-imaging of WW. In this collection of issues #1-6 he manages to rewrite her origin, convincingly introduce a cast of Greek gods, reveal a bunch of exciting locals and all alongside slick and witty dialogue. With wild revelations about her past, that set up huge potential for her future, he gives us a Wonder Woman full of anger and uncompromising violence. Seemingly fully formed before having her core rocked it will be interesting to see how she comes back from this. Throw into the mix Cliff Chiang's unique and eye-catching artwork and you have something that feels entirely fresh, and possibly one of the most successful of DC's New 52 reboots.
Definitely worth a look, especially f it is still at a knock down price.
