Wonder Woman Vol. 3: Iron


Dec 13, 2013 Issue #48 - November/December 2013 - HAIM Bookmark and Share

Brian Azzarello’s wild, violent run on Wonder Woman continues with this collection comprising Wonder Woman #0 and #13-17. Wonder Woman and her demigod siblings (all progeny of Zeus; yes, that Zeus) are after a mysterious baby that may or may not bring about the doom of humankind. Along the way, plenty of other gods show up, including Ares, Apollo, Aphrodite, and Poseidon. Oh, and there’s also someone known as “The First Born” who is dug out of a giant ice shelf in Antarctica.

If all of this sounds nuts, that’s because it is. And it’s good. Azzarello manages to find the humor and the heart in all of the insanity, and his gods are given the flaws that have made them such lasting archetypes. The expressive art by Cliff Chiang lends a pulpy feel to the proceedings, and it certainly makes Wonder Woman a series worth exploring. (www.dccomics.com/wonderwoman)
