Editorial Reviews

Review

"Expect a lot more Wonder Woman fans after a few issues of this book."—USA Today

"This is clear storytelling at its best....It's an intriguing concept and easy to grasp. The reader doesn't need to know that much about Wonder Woman because she is, well, Wonder Woman."—The New York Times

"It's a different direction for Wonder Woman, but one still steeped in mythology, and I think this is the start of great things from Azzarello and Chiang."—The Onion AV Club

"There's actually a lovely balance between being just wordy enough and going mute to let the art do the heavy lifting. And let me tell you, Cliff Chiang's art does said heavy lifting with nary a grunt. He handles suspense, gore, and action all with aplomb. His line-work is loose enough to avoid being static, and yet maintains a confident line."—Ain't It Cool News

Since the beginning of the DC New 52, it was essentially about rebooting most of the company's characters for new readers, except Green Lantern and Batman (for the most part). So in rebooting DC's own characters, it meant changing them up in different ways. When it comes to changes, one of the biggest changes goes to the characters and world of Wonder Woman. Instead of the bright, positive side of Greek mythology WW has followed for many years now, writer Brian Azzarello and artist Cliff Chang decided to follow the darker, Greek tragedy into the Amazon princesses' world. Because of this, Azzarello's take on Diana Prince has become a comic that is either the most retched and vile version created...or one of the most different and biggest changes she ever needed. Personally, I love all versions of WW...but I do love what Azzarello is cooking up, and volume 2 further cements this.

WONDER WOMAN VOLUME 2: GUTS collects issues #7-12 and picks up right where Wonder Woman, Vol. 1: Blood (The New 52) left off. Hades has taken Zola to the Underworld as payment for Diana's broken deal to share Hera to him and Poseidon for rule Olympus. Diana sets out to find Eros (god of love) and Hephaestus (blacksmith god) to aid her in going to Hell and taking back Zola herself. And as Zola is slowly becoming closer and closer to the day of giving birth to the offspring that will destroy the gods and take over, the gods themselves set their own plans and ambitions into play that is aiming for Olympus...or Zola's child.

Much like I said about the previous volume, Azzarello wants this to be epic; akin to Homer's The Odyssey.

I always felt like Wonder Woman was a character who had tons of potential, but simply lacked focus on her stories and tone. This book not only provides that, but also goes way beyond my expectations.
Great art, great characters, and great story.

There are some changes done to her mythos, but in my opinion it certainly is for the better.

It makes most of the characters quite flawed in various ways, which actually makes sense when dealing with Greek Mythology and Gods. When it comes to Wonder Woman though, the comic made sure to show both her warrior spirit and nature, as well as her ability to show great compassion and love.

The Amazons might not be some idealized feminist fantasy anymore, but certainly more complex characters, not to mention much closer to the myth, which makes sense considering that is what the comic was going for.

Overall, a great read and a brave new world for an iconic character.

Collects issues 7-12.

The series continues right from the previous volume. The pregnant Zola is still a captive of Hell, ruler of the underworld. Diana, Wonder Woman, is furious at this setback and gears up to challenge her uncle in his twisted realm. She still has the aid of Hermes, messenger of the gods and Lennox, another illegitimate child of Zeus like herself and Lola's unborn. The trio seek aid from Eros, god of love, and his master-smith father, Hephaetus. The journey takes them to the height of Mt. Olympus itself as the gods of sun and moon, Apollo and Artemis, challenge for Zues' vacant throne.

Readers should definitely start with volume 1 and realize that this is a continuing series that will probably only end with writer and artists Azzarello and Chiang's departure. This story is a continuing study of the world of the ancient Greek gods in the world of today. The through line is of Wonder Woman devoting herself to the protection of Zola and her baby, who is another abandonment of the King of the gods, Zues. Having said that this is a real treat to read. Wonder Woman is on a really fascinating adventure that really takes advantage of the "New 52" relaunch in giving her world new life and intrigue.

Previous takes on Wonder Woman, at least from what I have read, just borrowed lightly from the rich nature of the Greek gods mythos. Azzarello really puts it up front and center and turns them into the most epic family feud. He also gives new and interesting takes on certain characters that go against their past incarnations. Take Ares for example, the god of war. In the past storylines, he always played to conniving for what his name was, war, and was always lusting for power.

Guts is the second volume of Wonder Woman's New 52 iteration. Now, I have to admit, I've never particularly been a Wonder Woman fan. I mean, sure, as a young boy, I liked her just as much as the next young boy, but I never read her comics. But, when DC decided to (sort of) reboot their shared universe with the New 52, and when I learned that Brian Azzarello would be taking over Wonder Woman, well, even as a thirty-five year old man with a wife and two daughters, I couldn't resist. Azzarello is a superb writer. He's multifaceted, visionary, and merciless to his characters. Plus, in the months preceding the series' debut, he spoke at length about how his version would focus upon the Greek Gods and have more in common with horror than super hero adventures.

He had me at Greek Gods.

I haven't reviewed the first volume of Wonder Woman yet because, while I loved it, I frankly wanted to wait and see if the second volume would sustain my interest. Not only did it sustain my interest, it in fact increased my interest.

With Guts, I have a lay of the land. I've gotten used to Azzarello's interpretation of the Greek Gods and his general "atmosphere" for Wonder Woman. Now that I know what to expect in certain regards, I love the title all the more. His take on the Gods is unconventional, but that's what makes it captivating. He gives us just enough to make them recognizable, but changes everything else. Make no mistake, however, this man knows his mythology. At no time does he write a God "out of character." Of course, the genius is that these Gods have existed in world mythology for thousands of years, so that gives Azzarello a lot of wiggle room.

In Guts, Wonder Woman is trying to save a young woman who has been impregnated by a missing Zeus.
