Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Expect a lot more Wonder Woman fans after a few issues of this book."—USA Today

"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

"It's a different direction for Wonder Woman, but one still steeped in mythology, and I think this is the start of great things from Azzarello and Chiang."—The Onion AV Club

"There's actually a lovely balance between being just wordy enough and going mute to let the art do the heavy lifting. And let me tell you, Cliff Chiang's art does said heavy lifting with nary a grunt. He handles suspense, gore, and action all with aplomb. His line-work is loose enough to avoid being static, and yet maintains a confident line."—Ain't It Cool News

Library Journal
Azzarello’s (“100 BULLETS” series) best-selling second volume of DC’s reboot continues to strengthen the story of the new Wonder Woman. Zeus has vanished, and his latest conquest, Zola, bears his child. She has been taken by Hades, and now Diana seeks help from Hephaestus to rescue her. Hephaestus arms Wonder Woman with the pistols of his son Eros, and she descends to the underworld with Hermes as her guide and ally. Hades demands the pistols as ransom for Zola but then shoots Wonder Woman. Zola is rescued, but Diana must wed the king of the dead. Strife, sister of War, wends in and out of the story while other immortals such as Hera and Apollo make their own plans. Chiang’s bold art of interesting interpretations of the deities’ forms is a powerful asset to this book—the cover alone should be enough for any fan-boy to sit up and take notice.

Verdict The relaunched Wonder Woman is a heroine to watch. Readers will be eager for the next installment.—Eric Norton, McMillan Memorial Lib., Wisconsin Rapids

    The second installment of this ongoing series is much the same a

    The second installment of this ongoing series is much the same as the first finding it's strengths in an expanding storyline rooted in Greek mythology. This time though the Amazon Princess finds herself both in heaven (Fighting over the throne) and Hell (Where she forced to marry Hades) as events around here start to get out of her control. She solves them all of course by the end but the one weakness in the story is the fact that Wonder Woman has no real control over events - she simply reacts to whatever the Gods of Olympus have conspired to. She always seem to be one step behind the Gods and having to make an compromises. That's not a major problem because it affords the artist the opportunity to lead the reader to some spectacular worlds. The marriage ceremony in Hade in a luminous white cathedral is as good as comic book art can get and the final sequence on the throne of heaven is a visual feast for the eyes. But I do wish that the Queen of the Amazons would get it together a little more and start controlling events. Also her rendering by the artist is very hit and miss. There are some instances were she's unrecognizable and she still only has one real expression. P.O.'d . She doesn't scowl quite as much in this book as the previous one but she spends way to much of her time looking pissed. I wish she would lighten up a little. The writing is good to middling. The dialog can get a little choppy and some of the characters get too little air time but the storyline is still strong. Her journey both as a newly imagined superhero and thorough the jealousies of the Gods is brilliantly crafted and moves in a forward direction. Even sequences that could be a diversion in most cases - such as the marriage ceremony in Hades - manage to blend seamlessly into the overall story arc and the heavy emphasis on Greek Mythology never looks out of place and is treated with respect by the writers. Also Wonder Woman is still growing within the story both as a character and to the reader as the layers of this story stack up.

    This series was always envisioned as a reboot and in that capacity it works very well. This is a new Wonder Woman living in her own universe away from the other DC heroes and although this book is strong it doesn't stand on it's own but, instead, is another addition to an excellent storyline.

    The Greco-Roman Gods continue to fight over Zeus' latest baby.

    The Greco-Roman Gods continue to fight over Zeus' latest baby.

    Beautifully detailed graphics add to the characters, plot, and actions.

    Characters continue to develop both as individuals,in their compassion, and with their abilities.

    Overall, an enjoyable read.
