Truth seeker

As you most probably know, this issue is about the truth, the truth about Diana's origins. Through her history there have been many iterations of her origin,how she was born, how she was viewed by her sisters, how she came to the man's world and most importantly who is she? whats her role?

So in this issue Diana analyses all this different and contradicting aspects of her life, trying to figure out which ones are real and which one are fake, and with the help of her lasso she discovers someone is deceiving her; she changes her outfit and goes to the only place where there may be some answers, but those answers dont want to be found and as we en the story, Diana seems to be at the brink of a turbulent journey.

I give this issue 3 stars because this is nothing more than a setup for Diana's new series, I liked how Rucka played with Wonder Woman's past but the issue has no big reveal, no surprise, nothing exciting, nothing that awes you.

Art was great for the most part except for some panels that had Diana seeing her reflection on various surfaces that seemed weird and I'm having trouble adjusting to her new look, maybe because she looks a little too much like Gal Gadot which I am not crazy for, or maybe because the artist makes her look incredible in her New52 outfit at the beginning of the issue.

The story begins with Wonder Woman narrating how her memory of certain events keeps changing. This leads her to question herself and whether or not what she k...

    Facing Inconsistencies in her Mythology 0

    Greg Rucka covers the constant inconsistencies of the Wonder Woman mythos rather than ignoring them to create his own origin story. He looks at them head on weather she was truly born of clay or daughter of Zeus? Was she ridiculed or honored for being born of clay? Where the amazons philosophers or warriors? He covers these issues and sets Dianna on a path to find out the truth of her origins as she notices that everything in her past is not only a blur but keeps changing and she sets out for a...
