Reviews for Wonder Woman 2 : Guts
Library Journal Express Reviews
Azzarello's ("100 BULLETS" series) best-selling second volume of DC's reboot continues to strengthen the story of the new Wonder Woman. Zeus has vanished, and his latest conquest, Zola, bears his child. She has been taken by Hades, and now Diana seeks help from Hephaestus to rescue her. Hephaestus arms Wonder Woman with the pistols of his son Eros, and she descends to the underworld with Hermes as her guide and ally. Hades demands the pistols as ransom for Zola but then shoots Wonder Woman. Zola is rescued, but Diana must wed the king of the dead. Strife, sister of War, wends in and out of the story while other immortals such as Hera and Apollo make their own plans. Chiang's bold art of interesting interpretations of the deities' forms is a powerful asset to this book--the cover alone should be enough for any fan-boy to sit up and take notice. Verdict The relaunched Wonder Woman is a heroine to watch. Readers will be eager for the next installment.--Eric Norton, McMillan Memorial Lib., Wisconsin Rapids (c) Copyright 2013.
