I loved this origin story that showed a darker side of Diana before she learned to put others before herself.

The only thing I like about this is her drawing style, and the colors, everything else was terrible. Lets start with Diana, who (in this book) is portrayed as an profanity-using arrogant and selfish little brat, which is not the Wonder Woman I am familiar with. Also the amazons start out as "Stronger than 5 men!" which ok on its own, but then they evolve into clumsy wimps who wear nothing but revealing dresses, which was probably used to attract the male readers. Abstain form this dismal trash heap my friends.

One of the best retellings of Wonder Woman's origin written or rendered. Excellent job by the creative team! I've read few graphic novels that are as good this year. I only found that the ending was a bit soft, which is really a minor nitpick.

Huge Jill Thompson fan here, and this gorgeous, hard-cover, original graphic novel manages to offer yet another origin story for the most famous Amazon in history that explores something new, yet retains the iconic elements of Wonder Woman's story. Thompson imagines the Amazon princess as being so coddled and adored by the Amazon population that she becomes vain and self-involved, to the point of bringing shame and tragedy to herself and her sisters through her thoughtless selfishness. It's an interesting conjecture as to what ultimately forms Diana's virtuous character. And Thompson's artwork is gorgeous. This is one beautifully put together novel. A worthy addition to the WW canon.
