Review– Wonder Woman Vol. 3: Iron
Disclaimer: I received this book free from DC Entertainment in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any form of compensation.
For most of the other New 52 titles, I have really enjoyed them. However, I have not enjoyed the Wonder Woman reboot in the least. The graphics are brilliant. It’s just that the story line really leaves a lot to be desired.
When I first heard that they were going to focus more on Wonder Woman’s Greek Goddess ancestry, I was excited. I love reading the Greek mythologies. However, this story line is just so convoluted and tiring that I (for the first time in my life) found myself bored while reading a comic book. And considering some of the comics that I have read in the past, that is saying a lot.
The story line in Vol 3 follows the same story that was introduced in 1 and 2. Basically, Wonder Woman and a ton of other people are all searching for a baby. Some are looking to destroy it, while others are looking to save it. If you just pick up Vol 3, you will be completely lost. You definitely need to read the first 2 volumes to understand what is going on, who everyone is, and why it is all happening.
Am I happy with this rewrite of Wonder Woman? NO!
