In 2016, DC Comics celebrated 75 years of Wonder Woman, the first female superhero that was created by William Moulton Marston. She is also going to be the first female superhero to ever get her own film on the silver screen which was directed by Patty Jenkins, but it only took 76 years to get that accomplished. To celebrate both of those things, we are covering Wonder Woman for today and tomorrow to help us continue to celebrate Women’s History Month as well. Everything in the world just doesn’t feel normal right now to Diana, Princess of Themyscira who is known to the rest of the world as Wonder Woman. She is starting to question things because something just doesn’t feel right with her memories like things are changing all the time for her. After she gives us a little bit of a history lesson of who she is, she decides that she is going to test out her theory with the helmet of Ares. If she can crush it, then something is not real and after she does, she tries the lasso of truth to find out that she has indeed been deceived, but by who? That becomes the question as she travels to Mt Olympus for answers. To read the rest of the issue and anything else DC Comics related, please click here.
One thing is for certain when it comes to this issue of Wonder Woman and it’s I definitely like where they are going story wise. I like the idea that she is starting to question her own history or story as she puts it. She’s obviously question the New 52 and anything else other writers have done in the past with her character. Wonder Woman is definitely engaging you to be invested in the story which is exactly what you would want from her because you want to find out what in the hell is going on as well. Is she being deceived and by who is the question that we all are wondering. I don’t have a problem with the artwork because I do enjoy the style of it, but the covers could have been better in my opinion for this issue. I let that slide because it’s just the Rebirth issue after all. The picture I chose for this paragraph was one of my favorite moments from the story because you can see all different versions of her including a part of the really old version of her. I thought that was a very cool touch to the story indeed. The panels are easy to follow along with so you shouldn’t have an issue there and I definitely recommend this one to anyone.
