I love how Azzarello is reworking the various Gods. The new designs speak more about who/what the God is/represents then anything previous. I like that they don’t necessarily look human, they aren’t after all. And I love how this new reworking is giving a super hero title a new feel, a more horror/fantasy feel.

The introductions of Eros and Hephaestus help propel the story along. Last issue was a bit confusing, hard to follow, but this issue is strong. I especially like the reveal of who Hephaestus’ workers really are. And it helps clear up some confusion on just exactly how the Amazons have new children. They can’t all be born female.

There’s a good message to this issue, that not everything is how it seems. What looks like slavery ends up being something else. It’s a harsh lesson for Wonder Woman to learn.

What I don’t like about this book, and it’s really the fault of the Justice League title, is that the Wonder Woman in this book doesn’t read the same as the Wonder Woman in the Justice League. Because of the two different tones of the books, the feel of the stories, it seems like two different characters.

But again, that’s the fault of the Justice League, since Wonder Woman’s personality/character should come from her own book. This book doesn’t feel connected to the greater DCU and that’s not a bad thing. It works extremely well on it’s own.

Chiang’s work is very strong. It reminds me of Chris Sprouse. Both have a relatively simple style, conveying a lot with less lines. Chiang’s storytelling is strong, the story flowing nicely and the new designs for the gods are great.
