Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Azzarello and Chiang’s Olympic pantheon continues to be expanded in this volume with, not only the gods being introduced, but an introduction to other demi-gods like Diana and the “First Born” breaking out from his prison. The best part of the volume is actually a flashback to a time when Diana was trained by War in all things warrior. It’s great to get a glimpse of her teenage years and interactions with other Amazons. Overall a strong volume for the New 52 Wonder Woman, but there are times when the art is beyond messed up. Diana’s face has a tendency to change completely from panel to panel. I wouldn’t mind it as much if was with other characters, but it’s a bad sign when the main character can’t be drawn correctly in their own book.
The third installment in this ongoing series and it is also my favorite so far. The epic story involving Greek Gods battling for the Throne of Olympus keeps getting bigger and more engrossing and the artwork is cinematic in it's use of light and shadows and startling colors and Wonder Woman has finally become the woman she was always meant to be; maternal, smart, empathetic and gentle with a firm hand (just don't cross her - hell hath no fury and all that.) She 's finally the character I would want her to be and, of course, she looks good doing it. A brilliant read for any one who likes strong female character and action in the world of Greek mythology.
