I really liked this. It was bizarre, but in a good way.

Aaron "The Mad Whitaker" Bourque; I'm ambivalent towards Diana sleeping in the nude--not even like a night-tunic or robe, fully nude--but it does fit her character.

What the hell?

I get the vague idea they're trying to redo the recent Hercules series only without the sense of humor that made it palatable.

Zeus nailed a mortal lady. Ok. Is that Ares?

Are we doing WonderJesus?

I seriously finished reading this three minutes ago. Fucking A+.

I really like the design of the gods- especially Hermes' bird feet, and Apollo's eyes.

And, oh, Chiang, how I love that you can draw a woman in ANYTHING and yet she won't look sexualized at all! Seriously, was Hera naked except for a huge peacock cloak? If anyone else drew that...but the way he draws it, not putting women in sexualized positions, and with complete respect...and I adore how he draws Wonder Woman's top as COMPLETELY COVERING HER CHEST. LIKE REAL ARMOR. Artists who show off her cleavage always bothered me.

And I am so, so excited for this storyline, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I love writers who remember that, oh yeah, Wonder Woman is about the greek gods too, and the greek gods make instantly recognizable characters and are ripe with good WW storylines in them.

Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh~ :D

Gonna throw my praise on the growing pile (dang, how tall IS that thing?). I absolutely loved this first issue, probably my favourite of what I've read so far.

The stuff about the Gods only made sense in the vague outlines of it, of course, but I expect that at the beginning of a storyline so I can roll with it. What hit me though was Diana's voice. It's definitely her voice, you can hear that loud and clear. But it's also very much a warrior's voice, living in a land she's not native to. Which fits her backstory. And yet, even as businesslike as she is in a lot of this, there's still a slight note of humour and cameraderie there.

I hope Hermes doesn't die, that sarcastic comment of his was lovely, and I want to hear more of it.

It kinda reminded me of the Odyssey arc, though with Diana in a different role.

Anyway, not really sold yet.

I was really impressed by this issue. Probably my favorite aspect is the handling of Diana and how she doesn't open the book by showing off how much of a bada** she is. Heck, she doesn't come in until two story elements have already taken place! And when we are introduced to her, she's in bed sleeping.

Talk about taking full advantage of giving your story and characters a cadence and establishing your them BEFORE they're shown doing any fighting. No overdrawn inner monologues, and no "SEXY SEXY" catwoman #1 crap. This is probably my favorite DC new launch, even a tiny bit above Batwoman even though I bought only one issue of WW and six issues of BW. I like this a lot.

I like the creepy stuff with the gods, but I'm worried that the series is going to be more about Zola with Wonder Woman along for the ride. And I don't care about Zola.

This reminds me of Milligan's Greek Street, only with real gods.

Makes sense, and GS was amazing. Shame on people who didn't read it.

Everyone else seems to be going off the full issue; this is all I've seen of it so far, so I have no idea what you're talking about. But, hey, pink panties and a shotgun!

Looks like a return to form around the type of stories she lived through under John Byrne or that guy (??) who wrote her during the transparent Paradise Island floating in the sky-arc.

I was really happy with this. And the guys at my LCS warned me it would be gory, but I knew with Azzarello things can get a little gory.

This is A-List right where Diana should be. Great story, great art and lots of people talking about Wondy.

I really loved this issue- it was sold out at my LCS (as in, not even enough to fill all the pull boxes, let alone make it onto the shelf), and I ended up buying a copy through the comixology app.

I'm a big azzarello and chiang fan, so I was looking forward to this and it didn't disappoint.

my only complaint is with that damn pointy metal choker. Chiang's wonder woman looks invulnerable, and it probably doesn't hurt *her* but when I see the more willowy WW drawn by Lee, my trachea hurts.

I am legit having difficulty processing the prospect of a wonder woman comic that is purported to be good. I'm gonna have to read it now at least to see whether there's some joke I'm not being let in on.

Chiang is a legit goodartist, shame they gave him such a shitty costume to draw.
