“With his signature panache and irresistible layers of metaphor, Morrison has treated [Wonder Woman] graciously. A provocative and highly contrasted view that we have not seen before."
"Morrison, Paquette, and Fairbairn have delivered a fascinating update of the character, bringing a true sense of wonder to her story."
--A.V. CLUB/THE ONION

A spin in the origins of Wonder Woman, with Grant Morrison getting back to some of the concepts of William Moulton Marston, helped by the gorgeous rendered art by Yannick Paquette.

It is from this point onward in this storyline that I learned how Diana Met Steve Trevor, a U.S air force pilot who has crash landed on the mysterious island. The island of Themyscira, home of the Amazon's. As the story progresses, Diana slowly begins to discover the truth about how she was born, and, the real reason why she became the most powerful, and, the most highly skilled warrior among her people.
Grant Morrison does a good job with the writing, presenting a Wonder Woman character who is differently portrayed, when compared to the New 52, or rebirth Wonder Woman comics.
The artwork by Yannick Paquette, is impressively beautiful. He draws the most beautiful fictional women I've seen in a comic book. Can't wait to find out what Vol. 2 has to offer.
It's a solid and interesting take on the origin and I liked the addition of making Trevor black and how he relates this to the story. However I would have liked to see more of this.
The artwork is beautiful and Wonder Woman is the perfect balance of strength and beauty.
There definitely felt like there could been more to the story as WW barely does anything. So if you want action this book is not for you. However if you want to read a really interesting revamp of an origin then checking out
But not this one.
Started off fine, but when we appeared to meet the cast of pitch perfect for whatever reason, then it was just downhill without the brakes on. Please don't do this again...
