Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“a tale that hits at the core of who Diana is and what truly makes her one of DC's great icons”—IGN
Library Journal
Writer and television producer Straczynski (Amazing Spider-Man; Babylon 5O; Changeling) presents the second and final volume of Wonder Woman’s odyssey story arc. It begins with Wonder Woman trying to track down those responsible for the destruction of Paradise Island and the death of her mother, Hyppolyta. A few of her Amazonian sisters were able to escape, and they remain in hiding. But they are under threat, too, as Cheetah, Giganta, and Huntress look for Wonder Woman and her siblings in order to kill them. All of this takes place within confusing alternate time lines while raising questions of who is friend or foe. Despite these challenges, Wonder Woman must discover who she is and find the strength to overcome her true nemesis, which isn’t revealed until the end.

Verdict The reader may be just as confused as Wonder Woman, with the alternate time line becoming a device that changes abruptly the direction of the story; some may enjoy this, whereas others will find it incredibly frustrating. Recommended especially for readers interested in Wonder Woman.—Scott Vieira, Sam Houston State Univ. Lib., Huntsville, TX
