Shocking revelations about the Amazons!!

Firstly it is extremely good to know that Cliff Chiang is back. Phew! I was getting a bit worried since the last 2 issues went down the drain. All my complaints about terrible looks of Diana has been addressed finely in this issue. Wonder Woman looks go back to the first 4 issues that we were really used to and had began loving it... Chiang's pencilling is brilliantly consistent in every damn panel of every damn comic issue!

Plot

The story continues where the last issue left off and it really makes sense (finally) out of where the two earlier issues were trying to go. There is introduction of the gun slinging Eros who recognizes Hermes as his uncle! Now it appears that there is a team that is slowly building up while Diana is focused on getting Zola back. Eros takes them to Hephaestus and there is an interesting conversation when the foursome meet him at Mount Etna.

In this issue we get two blasts that connects to the Amazons' past - two secrets of the Amazons that even Diana hadn't known or thought about.

  • The Amazons go on raids for booty and then killing those they had intercourse with!!
  • After nine months if there is a male child, they are drained in the seas unloved. Now that's where Hephaestus comes into the scene trading weapons to those male children to whom he uses to man his forge. Diana misunderstands Hephaestus to be abusing them and that's when the truth is revealed.
  • I can easily go with 4.5 stars for this issue especially for opening up a lot of stuff about the Amazons. It easily makes this a Key Issue!

      In somewhat of a rarity I guess I am one of the last people to get to this issue instead of one of the first, and having done so has let me get some of the hype before actually reading it.  I can say that after reading it though that it is really not deserved.  A lot is going to be made of course of this in terms or the revised (or simply explained for the first time) history of the Amazons.  Diana keeps on getting revelations about her life which open her eyes to what she previously didn't know...

      I'm loving the new 52 version of Wonder Woman, despite everything. No matter what you think about the changes, it's definitely restored my interest in a character that has never really been all that important in over 70 years of continuity. That being said, many people are gonna be unhappy about this issue, and I can't really blame them.The main issue I've seen people complain about in this series so far is that Wonder Woman's origins and people have been changed to one that is much darker and u...
