I have always been a Wonder Woman fan but never really read many comics, but loved watching the old show on TV.

Here is what I thought

DC Comics is doing a rebirth with a lot of their old characters, I am guessing maybe that means they are revamping them or something.

Wonder Woman is at a bit of a loss, her lasso of truth isn’t working and she can’t find her way back home. She has always been able to find her way back to Paradise but things are not right and she is mad and want to talk to the Gods of Olympus.

She goes to try and find them and runs into Cheetah who has been cursed by Urzkartaga and is not a happy woman. Wonder Woman needs her help finding her way back home but Cheetah is not so inclined to so so at first but then they end up working together.

Meanwhile, Steve Trever and his men are going after Cadulo in a place called Tessana. He finds a bit more than he bargains for there as there are a lot of creatures there. His luck though it also happens to be the same place that Wonder Woman has come too.

Even though Wonder Woman can always find Steve when he is in trouble it seems they haven’t seen each other in a long time, though they have never forgotten each other. I was a little confused and it could be because I am not real current on the things that has gone down with Wonder Woman but it didn’t really hurt my reading of this graphic novel too much.

The art was fantastic!!

    Awesome review, Stormi. Thanks for sharing. 😀
    I loved graphic novels when I was in junior high school. I was obsessed back then. The last graphic novel I read was twilight, three years ago, and I loved it. I want to read more graphic novels. 😀

      I use to read them when I was a kid but had gotten out of the habit, but decided to try again. There are so many different kinds these days.

    I haven’t read many comics lately. I’m not sure how much I would enjoy them compared to the novels. I think I would need to be in the right mood.

      I haven’t read many but some times it’s nice to have something quick to read. 🙂

    I love Wonder Woman too and she has always been one of my favorite. Well, her and Harley Quinn so I guess good vs. evil might cancel each other out. This one looks great but I have a really hard time reading graphic novels or my Kindle or tablet.

    I haven’t read the Wonder Woman comics. I really don’t know a lot about her as a character. Good to know that you still enjoyed without knowing a lot either. Maybe I will give this a try. I love that cover. The art looks amazing.

      It was a little confusing but in the end it wasn’t too bad and Wonder Woman saved the day and I am curious to see how things will go with her and Steve as it seems Superman must have come between then at some point…lol. 🙂
