Readers who've become bored with Wonder Woman's recent exploits should check out this dynamic reboot. After Aphrodite withdraws her protection from Paradise Island, the Amazons are slaughtered by waves of mysterious enemies, so that the Amazon princess is now on the run, pursued by powerful creatures from legend as she tries to save herself and her few surviving subjects. To live up to her responsibility, she must fight high-tech mercenary warriors somehow allied with supernatural monsters. Whether the action is set in Middle Eastern ruins or American skyscrapers, Straczynski understands how to use the power of manmade and inherited myth, and he succeeds in creating fitting arenas in which a (super) powerful woman can show what she's made of. DC's art team lives up to the superior script from Straczynski (and Hester), and this presents the beginning of a genuinely exciting and satisfying rebirth of a great but frequently

This book was enjoyable to me. The art is very wonderful (at times the style is somewhat inconsistent), and the story has enough to make you re-read if you want to understand it. A big plus was that Wonder Woman has a reasonable costume that isn't a bathing suit, and she isn't portrayed as just a woman, but as a character with complicated feelings. There were also some moments that I found quite amusing. All in all, this book is great and recommended.

I have been familiar J. Michael Straczynski's work since the TV series Babylon 5, which is one of my favorites. I read Superman: Earth One, and I really enjoyed it. So, when I heard about what he was going to do with Wonder Woman, I was intrigued. I picked up this book today, and I read it. Like Superman: Earth One; this book takes a very bold step with re-inventing an icon for the 21st century. I'm looking forward to the next chapter of this story.

I really enjoyed the comic book reading experience on my Nook Color. I have never been a comic book fan but love Wonder Woman! Once I got used to how to use it I completely loved it and am eagerly awaiting the next one! And if you don't have a nook get one, they are worlds better than kindle!

I really enjoyedbthis new re-imagined wonder woman. The creation of a more updated story is gritty and shows wonder woman as a more deeply troubled woman with a past that makes since I use to love comics as a kidd and this really took me back to my childhood. Awesome graphic novel
