    I enjoyed this version more that the novel, partly for the visuals and partly because as it was more condensed it did not seem as slow moving as the novel. Like the book I would have preferred more action, and the artwork is more suited to Batman then Wonder Woman, but it is still good. Personally I think the story would have been better without the people being taken over by the Greek deities. I did not understand the reason for it in the novel or here.

Personally I think the story would have been better without the people being taken over by the Greek deities. I did not understand the reason for it in the novel or here. The story is good more Wonder Girl then Wonder Woman, but as it is an origin and a younger (by immortal standards) Diana this make complete sense. I like how the characters inspire each other to be better. This is a good coming of age story. It definitely works better in a graphic novel format. Ok so it was not my favourite incarnation of Diana but it was the right character for the time of the story.

    I didn't like this as much as the original novel. Translating prose to comics is difficult and I think that's what happened here. Trying to include all the narration in the prose version made for some boring passages in the GN. The art was OK, but I didn't like the color palette at all. It was very dark and muted almost as if the whole story took place at dusk. I know this DC Ink line of books has made sparse use of colors in a good way but it just wasn't the same in this one.

Received a review copy from DC and Edelweiss. All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementioned.

The famed DC superhero has many names and she has been adapted and reincarnated many times. First appearing in 1941 before her first feature in 1942, there have been films, TV shows, and books. And now she is once again welcomed back to the comic book page in Louise Simonson’s adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer. The story follows Diana Prince, long before her tenure as the legendary Wonder Woman, as she risks exile from her homeland to save a mortal and becomes ensnared in an international plot to stop a world war. This is where the plot gets interesting. The world isn’t being threatened by the usual trigger-happy white men in suits, but by the very girl Diana saves. Alia Keralis is a Warbringer: a direct descendant of Helen of Troy and destined to cause chaos. Together, the two women must overcome their own insecurities and unleash the potential within themselves in order to prevent the world from falling into violence. The novel in which this adaptation is based on manages to inject a fresh new voice into the overcrowded universe of superhero origin stories, and Bardugo establishes her own version of Wonder Woman’s early beginnings with her usual punchy flair. In Simonson’s adaptation, the characters are placed front and centre with Kit Seaton’s illustrations. Seaton, who has also lent her artist prowess to another YA adaptation, Alexandra Bracken’s Brightly Woven, manages to breathe life into the DC Universe with her playful graphic design. The only drawback to Seaton’s art is that at times it fails to deliver impact due to the similar colour choices utilised throughout. The book is a colour wheel of blue and grey, and only occasionally does the novel brighten up with oranges and reds. Wonder Woman has always been a symbol of vibrancy and power, and at times, Seaton’s art disappoints and doesn’t manage to capture that historic essence. Overall, it is enjoyable to look at. Aside from the premise, the plot isn’t anything particularly new, but the magic comes from the main cast. Diana and Alia are joined by the latter’s best friend Nim, a boisterous go-getter with a no-nonsense attitude, and Theo, her brother’s sidekick and crush. Bardugo does character so well and always creates a familiar and realistic portrayal of group friendships. The dynamic between the foursome is both hilarious and uplifting. Wonder Woman returns to her roots in the Warbringer graphic novel with witty dialogue, high stakes and great friendships. Bardugo’s YA novel is honestly depicted through art and speech, and while it doesn’t quite capture the grandeur of a traditional Wonder Woman story, it lands on two feet when it comes to hilarity and character and gives a nod to the future in its conclusion. A worthy entry in the Wonder Woman universe.
