Here is the exact example of why DC Comics fell far behind Marvel in the late 90s-early 2000s. The previous collection was a great starting point into Wonder Woman’s world. We were seeing new takes on old villains. We saw a great supporting cast with some superb family issues. This collection started that way and then suddenly you are thrown in the middle of DC wide event involving Imperiex. The whole story goes off the rails. We see an obvious death, random fights, bizarre guest appearances, and connections to other stories that don’t make any sense. At one point there are dozens of female heroes and villains without a plausible reason. Almost like an executive at DC said, “Wouldn’t it cool if someone drew this….?” Its terrible. The worst part of all is that Phil Jimenez’s art is phenomenal but wasted on this. His scripting skills are definitely lacking but as penciler he shines. The covers by Adam Hughes are amazing as well. Overall, this is not worth the time.
I love this graphic novel. It introduces you to a variety of super heroes and the graphics are gorgeous. I found Wonder Woman to be all that I thought she could be: beautiful, graceful and thought provoking. I would recommend this to anyone who loves the old comic book series as it stays true to who she is and what she represents.
