In this New 52 Universe reboot of Princess Diana, not only is she an Amazon but the daughter of Zeus. Azzarello crafts a wonderful new world for Diana to live in with greater ties to Greek mythology given her familial ties. Many do not like this idea but I have found it to be refreshing and entertaining.

I'm not sure how I feel about the change in Wonder Woman's origin story, but other than that, this book was pretty solid. I especially liked how all the gods look different--Hermes looked kind of like a bird, Poseidon was a gigantic fish, Apollo looked like a bronze statue--very cool.

For the first 11 issues is a very weak storyline, but after that the storyline gets way better. Hold out hope. Am reading this in issues and am on issue 24 and by now the story line is awesome.

Artwork is not good at all. How can you call this graphic? No detail work, barely more than a cartoon.

Excellent art work, lame story. I think it started off strong, but I really wanted more from this character.

Finally, a killer Wonder Woman story! Every panel, every page rocks.

I enjoyed this partial "reboot" of Wonder Woman. I like a lot of woman warriors (Valkyrie, Sif, Black Widow) but I've always been a little bored by Wonder Woman. Maybe it's because she's from DC, not Marvel. Azzarello makes Wonder Woman interesting with some good twists, some pathos for Wonder Woman and fun versions of the Greek gods.

Rather indifferent art that is perhaps self consciously trying to be rough and expressive, without too much success. The story is not so good either. A lot of talk and intrigue, some of it hard to follow. My second New 52 graphic novel is a big disappointment.

Cool to see the brutal pantheon of Greek gods in the DC universe.

Azzarello takes the reins of the Amazon Princess with this first collection of the rebooted DC universe. I like his take on the character, attention to detail, and storytelling as he unveils a new status quo and background for the character, as well as the people around her. The art seemed a bit off to me- not quite to my tastes.
