The fourth Wonder Woman series. Only a year after fans demanded DC change the last volume's numbering to #600 so the character could rightfully have her legacy among her companions in the Trinity, the numbering was reset with a new series as part of The New 52.

Is it weird for a guy to have Wonder Woman as his top 3 comic character? If so, sue me and pay very close attention on why I admire her. I’ve said this many times and have annoyed my fellow Cyber Nerds, specially the “1/3”, but this ferocious warrior whose Zeus’ cold blood runs through her veins makes the Bat look like Buttercup and Supes like Bubbles, when it comes to battles. I’m pretty sure I’ll get a fan or two coming out of the woods shouting “BATMAN IS TRAINED IN 127 DIFFERENT MARTIAL ARTS!” – Chill.

Parental Advisory

Brian Azzarello must of spent his summer with the Gods, how else could you strip the Amazonian Princess to the core, explore her weaknesses and exhibit her true potential?
I’m glad this is not your typical alien hero fighting average villains. No! Azzarello writes a true story that matters, why? Because it’s fair, there is a proper struggle, something common on both sides of the story, this is a long battle with and along her new found family of deities and Diana is bound to find out those who are against her and those who are AGAINST her.

Cliff Chiang and Tony Akins also add their Godly skills to the New 52 adventure. The art work is deemed of ones above the clouds. The colour tone and art style is just so right, I kid you not, this comic will have you feeling like you have time travelled to Mount Olympus. Another aspect worth mentioning is their own version of the Gods, man Hades looks dope.

 

I’m a fan of Wonder Woman in Justice League War, but this run has pushed her to another level of savagery and If you’re down for a full ride of trifling, deceits, family drama and death, pick up the New 52 Wonder Woman. I promise the God of War will not disappoint you with her cunning moves and fatal blows. I couldn’t have been more proud in putting this comic book in my top reads of 2013/14. *DISCLAIMER*  This is not for the faint hearted.. in other words, if you are Supes fan you might want to avoid this.

The second half of this run were introduced to the new superstar  creative team of writer Meredith Finch and artist David Finch! As this new epic begins, the fate of the Amazons is about to be revealed, major new characters will be introduced and a new villain will arrive with enough power to defeat the combined might of Wonder Woman and her Justice League teammates.

Split between her responsibilities in the Watchtower and her home Themyscira,  we see a worn down warrior in a foul mood who yet again finds herself battling with her family. With a brand new outfit and set of armour Diana once again has to balance the struggles between two worlds.

Brian Azzarello must of spent his summer with the Gods, how else could you strip the Amazonian Princess to the core, explore her weaknesses and exhibit her true potential?

To buy or Not to buy?

The New 52 is a great pick up for the returning fans and for those who are not so familiar with Wonder Woman. A full ride of action captured with great art and you also get two stories. It’s a win, win.
