Wonder Woman: Eyes of the Gorgon based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This was so good I read it in one sitting. Greg Rucka, who I love, combines mythology, political intrigue, and super-heroics into one fantastic book. Diana can come off as too amazing until you think about who she really is. She's supposed to be perfect. Literally. The villains she faces here are great and in great numbers. The one drawback to this book is that vast number of characters are sometimes overwhelming. The art, mainly by Drew Johnson, is fantastic and underrated. Added to that are truly gorgeous covers by J.G. Jones. Overall, a great read that should be considered among some of the best Wonder Woman stories.
Greg Rucka adds another installment into his fan-favored run on "Wonder Woman," a DC comic that doesn't get enough praise or attention in this reviewer's opinion. Steeped in Greek myth and Amazon warrior culture, this collection follows the machinations of antagonist Circe as she raises the famously dangerous Gorgon Medusa to challenge our heroine, Diana. Also within these pages is an intriguing subplot surrounding the throne of Olympus as the Greek Goddesses (led by wise Athena) team with other major female deities to attempt a regime change on the archaic Zeus. Part of the appeal for this reviewer is in the multitude of women characters that pepper this storyline in distinct ways. Whether it's watching the conniving Veronica Cale manipulating the Gorgons to her ends or the schemes of Athena as she weaves her way through the hierarchy this novel never has a boring moment. But really, the greatest moments are the two utterly brutal fight scenes that showcase exactly why Wonder Woman is one of DC's ultimate heavy-hitters and why this graphic novel shouldn't be missed or left out of anyone's collection
