Oddly enough, I had to read this graphic novel for my Mythology class. We were discussing myth in the modern world and so we did a unit on Wonder Woman, reading the first two issues of the original comic book series, watching the pilot of the Lynda Carter TV show, and finally, reading the first volume of the new 52. Needless to say, this has definitely been the most fun school assignment I’ve ever had.

Rating: [4/5]

Reading Challenge: A graphic novel

Summary: Diana is sucked in to a war between the gods when Zola, who’s pregnant with Zeus’s child, shows up in her room one night. In her quest to protect Zola, Diana returns home to Paradise Island, bringing bloodshed right along with her. After discovering the secret to her parentage, Diana must figure out how to keep Zola and the baby safe from Hera and prevent war among the gods.

Likes: I love the character development, especially compared to the other two versions of Wonder Woman I’ve seen. I also really like how Greek mythology plays a larger role. Plus, the art style is absolutely gorgeous.

Dislikes: They switched artists in issues 5 and 6, which made it feel a little weird.

TL;DR: Definitely read this if you like comics and superheros.

  1. So glad you liked it! Artist switch ups in comics are super jarring sometimes but really common. You should really read the rest of this arc it is so good.
