The second installment of the jaw-droppingly ambitious history of the Amazons finds their future queen, Hippolyta, cutting a swath through the world of men, desperate to be reunited with the astonishing women who saved her life...but unfortunately for her, they're hard folk to find. Perhaps it is the will of the Goddesses that they cross paths again...but before that moment, Hippolyta will gather to herself a tribe of her very own-and find that the hearts of all women do not necessarily burn with a flame as righteous as her own...

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 6, 2022

    DeConnicks re-imagining of the origin of the Amazons continues to refine a story that echoes back over 80 years to Marston and Peters original tale. Every time the story gets told again, its a bit different. This time around, it feels much more firmly rooted in ancient Greek mythology legends than it ever has before. (The issue even opens with prayers to the seven goddesses.) There is a powerful gravity to this history that echoes through the second volume in the series.  Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 5, 2022

    If this series has one problem, it's that the parts involving the Amazons never quite mesh with the parts involving the Gods. The character of Apollo in particular, being set up as the greater-scope villain of the third chapter, comes off as little more like a whiny boy. But between the ambitious storytelling and the brilliant art, this is an unique book that's well worth a read. Read Full Review
