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/A.V. 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

Wonder Woman and friends are under attack by multiple forces in multiple realms, and the baby must be protected. Without dialogue or text, the graphic narrative manages to fairly effectively carry the story, action, and character development. Characters are prolific, varied, and well formed. Overall, an interesting read.

Wonder Woman is one of the most powerful female superheroes of all time. In this current incarnation of, Princess Diana, she is the last of her people and tries to remain true to family. How, by protecting it. Filled with wonderful character designs of the Olympic gods, this new DC 52 series just keeps getting better and better.

Twists and turns abound along with surprises, new characters, and some epic plot points. The story development gets faster and faster with each volume and it reaches runaway freight train levels in this one, but Azarello manages to keep all the elements in order and keep the story cohesive. The problems I had with the art in the last volume (horrible quality in some panels being the biggie) seem to have vanished and we get some of the coolest looking panels of the series (i.e. War and his soldiers!). Overall, a lot of things to enjoy and tiny, nitpicky and easily ignored details that don’t take away from some awesome Wonder Woman story telling.

Another strong installment to this ongoing series that puts Wonder Woman both in London and a space city. Epic battles and the death of two major characters make this book a must read in this series but I still think the best is yet to come. This book was like the middle film of a trilogy - not quite filler but not really it's own entity. The writing is good and the artwork remains strong and the London locations are used well but in the end I left feeling I wanted to get started on the next installment more than I felt any affinity for the events of this volume. A good book but the best is yet to come.

Azzaelo and Chaing's Wonder Woman is one of the best ongoing Wonder Woman stories ever. Their entire run is worth a few reads. Only negativity would be around ordering. Have been a member for several years and have never received a package in 2-3 business days as promised with membership. And if and when my package isn't lost the books inside have never not arrived damaged from books being put in boxes much to large with nothing to keep them from banging around. They also have packages transferred from ups to the local post office which usually adds a day or two to the delivery time if they don't just hold it and return to sender. Just having ups deliver them would eliminate the issue and actually get packages delivered in the time frame promised with the paid membership but apparently that would be too easy and not misleading enough when paying money to get the chance to pay more money. Long story short great read, make the trip to the store and skip the membership.
