There's so much I can say about this book and - no pun intended - how wonderful it is.
I could talk at length about how Gail Simone has come up with the most original and exciting plot thread for a Wonder Woman story in years, i.e. Wonder Woman abandons her mother, her gods AND her people in the face of a betrayal of her ideals by all three.
I could talk about the wonderful character moments that make up every single page of this book, like the one page which not only shows us the big difference between how Wonder Woman treats the villains she fights compared to the rest of the Holy Trinity of DC Comics but also gives T. O. Morrow more character than I think has ever been given to him in anything ever.
I could talk about the art, the clever use of expression and how yes... yes... the women in this comic are actually wearing sensible boots with their costumes!
I could talk about how amazing it is that I see more potential for stories I would like to read in a single issue of this comic (i.e. Betsy Ross drawing inspiration from the Amazons and the possibility of Amazon intervention in the American Revolution) than I read in a half-dozen books any other week. And I could really talk about how well Black Canary is written in this and how nice it is to see that again!
But no. I can say all that and more with just one scan. Just a single page.
You have the gorgeous artwork. You have the nice character moment where you learn little details about the characters you never knew before. And you get to learn a little something more about Amazon culture that seems so obvious in retrospect in what basically amounts to a throw-away gag.
It's a good comic, plain and simple.
The Final Verdict: Awesome. There is no other word for it. Gorgeous artwork, a sled-load of wonderful character scene and honest drama with the Amazons, the likes of which has not been seen in years. If you like comics, you should be reading this book!
