    The art is the best part of the issue. It looks fantastic and fits the scale and scope of Olympus. Anderson's colors are put to great use. If you like the Greek mythology aspect of Wonder Woman, you might like the plot more than I did. It's not a bad story and I am intrigued to see what happens but I am a little tired of the Olympian politics. That may just be my sensibilities. I just don't find the other characters interesting outside of their appearance. Despite that, I still recommend checking this out. It's a decent jumping on point and was a fun read. Read Full Review

    Even if the story doesn't get anyone's heart racing, it does generate plenty of intrigue. Meredith Finch does a good job of generating the same intrigue that made Brian Azzarello's run on the series so engaging. It might not result in another mortal woman being impregnated by a god, which would make it an novelty in Greek Mythology, but it does adhere to the same powerful themes that has helped certain mythologies stand the test of time.

    There's more positive going on in this issue than in the last several, but it still hasn't gotten over the hump. Read Full Review

    While the story is interesting enough, the ways we get to that story are ridiculous in that it all relies on Wonder Woman being a great big dummy.  Her characterizations and motivations just seem way off here and I spent the entire issue just yelling at Diana to smarten the hell up.  The art in this issue is excellent as always and even though I was infuriated at Diana throughout this issue, I was soothed a bit by the fantastic visuals.  Read Full Review
