about

Heroic. Iconic. Unstoppable. Armed with her Lasso of Truth and imbued with the power of the gods themselves, Princess Diana of Themyscira—known to the world as Wonder Woman—is one of the greatest superheroes in history.
 
But who is she…really? Not even Wonder Woman herself knows for sure. Diana’s links to both the Amazons and the Gods of Olympus have been severed. Her memories are a tangle of contradictions that even her lie-detecting lasso cannot untangle. 
 
To solve the riddle of her origin, she must embark on her greatest quest of all: finding a way back to her vanished home. To get there, she must team up with her greatest enemy, the feral beast-woman, Cheetah. Will this unlikely alliance shine the light of truth on Diana’s darkest secrets, or bury them—and her—forever?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC I was given a few of the comics as a gift and I fell in love with Greg Rucka's adaptation of the Wonder Woman story! This series is phenomenal and I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes the story of Diana Prince. I will say that some of the volumes have better art than others, but each is unique and captivating in it's own way! #PlumReview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible I was blown away by the artwork in this volume! Sharp's masterful drawings make every panel feel like a spashpage in its detail and beauty. Rucka's story is also very good and original. This is the most compelling origin for Wonder Woman yet and looks to finally give her a proper start, tying together a swath of past beginnings that never took off. A great start, can't wait to catch-up on volume 2!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Lies are good "The first casualty of war is truth." Said the woman with the golden lasso that compels the truth. "The truth matters." The conceit is a familiar one to comic books: the stories we've read are lies. A new writer has come aboard and provides a new direction by dismantling the past. Rucka isn't new to WW however and a story about "truth" and "lies" doesn't feel so contrived for a character who uses truth as a weapon. Rucka and Sharp create an interesting story that weaves together WW's cast of characters like Steve, Candy and Barbara Ann (Cheetah). It's a story about the lies that enslave and weaken people, particularly how a male god-figure rules over a group of women, including Cheetah (an old friend of WW). Lies create confusion, but I think Rucka does a good job keeping WW's strength. She is independent but has a family. She is strong but not mindless in her physicality. The problem with the book is minor but the kind of kismet or fate that is between Steve and Diana comes across as awkward (they are on separate missions in the same part of the world). Keep in mind though that this is only the first volume of a longer run so there's room to expand. The book is good and with 4 retellings of WW's origin in 2016-17 (including one by Rucka in Vol. 2), this is a character that needs direction, clarity and most of all, a world which to breath in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rucka's DC Rebirth It is a very welcome sight that Greg Rucka has returned to DC Comics & especially Wonder Woman after a long absence. One of the few DC Rebirth Graphic Novels that I finished reading in one sitting ..... it was quite captivating. Rucka has returned to Diana at her lowest point ..... the death of her former lover, Superman (New 52 version), & the fact that all of her encounters with the Amazons & the Olympian Gods (ala the Brian Azzarello era) since leaving Paradise Island are all lies. I did have a concern that Rucka was doing a similar story arc to the one J. Michael Straczynski did more than five years ago, which was terrible. But by the time I finished the book, those concerns were definitely alleviated. Veteran artist Liam Sharp has done a wonderful job expressing Rucka's darkened narrative with an air of somber. Sharp's facial touches to the characters has clearly identified the heightened expression of emotions. It was wonderful to see two of Rucka's key characters making their first appearance since the New 52 began --- Sasha Bordeaux & Veronica Cale. One thing that bothered me, Etta Candy looks & acts too much like Amanda Waller, which was the only look point of the book. Can't wait for the second volume in a few months.
