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. 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.
