    Wonder Woman finishes her quest to find Themyscira before Cheetah returns as part of the Year of the Villain event. Cheetah gets the God Sword. Supposedly it can kill anything, yet Diana is able to block it with her bare arms. I found quite a few inconsistencies during Wilson's run on Wonder Woman. It felt like she was ambivalent to the character. There are a lot of artists on this book but having the same colorist does maintain a consistent look throughout.

    The final 8 issues of G. Willow Wilson's run on Wonder Woman bring back the Amazons, as well as Grail and the Cheetah as Year Of The Villain runs rampant all over Themyscira. Wilson's run has always felt very lofty in terms of goals, but it can sometimes miss the mark in terms of execution. This final collection of arcs has a similar feel to it, with the Cheetah plot kind of going round in circles on itself, to the point that it's not even resolved as part of Wilson's run and instead continues ov The final 8 issues of G. Willow Wilson's run on Wonder Woman bring back the Amazons, as well as Grail and the Cheetah as Year Of The Villain runs rampant all over Themyscira. Wilson's run has always felt very lofty in terms of goals, but it can sometimes miss the mark in terms of execution. This final collection of arcs has a similar feel to it, with the Cheetah plot kind of going round in circles on itself, to the point that it's not even resolved as part of Wilson's run and instead continues over into the next trade under a new writer. Wilson's grasp of Themysciran politics is fun to read, as is the return of both Grail and Ares from earlier points in this series. On the flipside though, Cheetah can feel a bit one dimensional instead, and considering she's one of Wonder Woman's greatest nemeses, that shouldn't really be the case. The art has also been a bit of a failing for this title under Wilson, but with Cary Nord well and truly jettisoned, I'm happy to report that it now looks wonderful all the time. Jesus Merino and Xermanico do most of the heavy lifting, while literal chamelon Tom Derenick and Scott Eaton show up to help out at certain points too. It's not as big and flashy as when Liam Sharp and Nicola Scott were tag teaming, but it's far more consistent than the book has been in a long time. Wilson's final Wondy arc isn't so much a conclusion as a passing of the baton; it has some strong points, but doesn't quite reach the highs it aims for, which is characteristic of the entire run. That said, consistently okay isn't a bad thing.

Poor Diana goes through a lot. Really, all of the characters do, but still. The end of this arc wipes the slate in an organic fashion, opening up exciting new possibilities for whatever comes next. The art was again good, if again inconsistent. At least one of the artists seemed prone to drawing Diana very thin, which was odd. The pacing moved the story along well, and allowed for a lot of emotional complexity to come out, which I appreciate. This was a very good arc.

    i really enjoyed this one. loved the art and the story. i normally always roll my eyes at anything with veronica cale (even if it's good) because she's my least favorite wonder woman villain but she was well used in this i really enjoyed this one. loved the art and the story. i normally always roll my eyes at anything with veronica cale (even if it's good) because she's my least favorite wonder woman villain but she was well used in this

    I have never come so close as to rage quitting a book as I have to this one. After years of having Wonder Woman separated from the rest of the Amazons, we're finally given them back, and then everything else is taken away. I wanted to throw the book across the room when Steve Trevor broke up with her. Someone at DC needs to put a stop to this before it ruins all the good being done for the character by the success of the movies.

    Estou algo bastante decepcionado com o run da escritora G. Willow Wilson na Mulher-Maravilha. Não sei se ela foi afetada por pressão editorial, já que neste volume ela teve de lidar com as consequências da saga O Ano do Vilão, ou se foi falta de criatividade mesmo. Este arco começa com a Mulher-Maravilha reencontrando as Amazonas, que estão perdidas em outra dimensão com o apoio de suas amigas de batalha.

Não sei se ela foi afetada por pressão editorial, já que neste volume ela teve de lidar com as consequências da saga O Ano do Vilão, ou se foi falta de criatividade mesmo. Este arco começa com a Mulher-Maravilha reencontrando as Amazonas, que estão perdidas em outra dimensão com o apoio de suas amigas de batalha. Este é um arco de mediano para bom e sentimos os abalos de uma aventura diferente nos deixar a adrenalina aflorar. Por outro lado, temos o segundo arco, que envolve o retorno da Mulher-Leopardo e a megassaga O Ano do Vilão. A Escolha da Mulher-Leopardo provavelmente tem a ver com sua aparição no filme WW: 1984. De qualquer forma o trabalho de Wilson com a Diana está muito distante daquele que ela fez com Kamala Khan, a Miss Marvel. Além disso, esse arco e todo o run de Wilson na Mulher-Maravilha sofre de uma rotatividade maluca de artistas, o que perde bastante da consistência da arte e da narrativa. Este, no entanto, é o último arco da roteirista à frente de Diana. Ela será substituída por Steve Orlando nas próximas edições.

    Okay. So glad I continued on with this series. Really wasn't sure I would after I gave the previous volume 1 star. I now have no idea why I rated that so low and this one so high buttttt I'm glad I liked it more. :) Okay. So glad I continued on with this series.

    This series of Wonder Woman continues to be good. LOTS of action in this Volume and an event long foretold (which will probably get reversed soon enough): Diana's return to Themyscira! Highlights: - "Dimension Chi" is explained a bit, as being a place of refuge for Amazons if needed, and is held in place by the will of Queen Hippolyta.

It turns out to be a refuge, as Diana finds Antiope and a contingent of Amazons staying there. They have fled the island to regroup and plan, as Grail has taken the throne with the help of the God Killer sword. - Maggie attempts to give Antiope back her sword, but keeps it with blessing AND the promise of being trained by her as an Amazon. - Diana joins with the Amazons in exile and Antiope's sword is used to reunite the bridge from Themyscira and Earth. Wonder Woman leads the attack. - As Grail prepares to defend, the God Killer sword has been taken from her, and she is easily defeated by Diana. Where did the sword go? Lex took it and has given it to Cheetah (more Year of the Villain stuff) - Cheetah has the power to kill Diana but instead kills Aphrodite, who was staying at Diana's apartment. This has worse consequences: the Death of Love. Steve leaves, Diana begins to lose her abilities, and general chaos ensues, even Diana losing to Cheetah. - Coming to the realization that she loves Diana, but will willingly give her up so she can be with Steve, Atlantiades ascends and becomes the new Goddess of Love. - With love once again restored, Diana is able to win the day again, but takes Cheetah to Themyscira anyway, though she goes immediately to jail. ... and the saga continues. Looking forward to the next Volume for sure! Strong recommend.

    With Themiscyra having been destroyed (again) earlier in this storyline, now is the time to restore it to reality (again). That takes up the first two episodes of this collection, with the remaining five consituting the "Loveless" arc of the title. This is tied in with the "Year of the Villain" metaplot on DC at the time, but thankfully the connection is (at least at this point) fairly loose, since it doesn't really add anything to it.

This is tied in with the "Year of the Villain" metaplot on DC at the time, but thankfully the connection is (at least at this point) fairly loose, since it doesn't really add anything to it. Instead, we get a story about Cheetah being responsible for banishing love from the world. The effects of that are, perhaps a little overdone (most people do have other positive emotions, surely?) but, within the context of Wonder Woman it actually works quite well. That's because, at least when done properly, love has always been one of Diana's strongest motivations in a way that isn't true of, say, Batman. Without it, she's weaker, and we see some of the repercussions of that in amidst the combat scenes. On the downside, there's nothing much to Cheetah beyond just being unpleasant, and, despite this being the end of Wilson's run, the story feels unfinished (which, granted, it obviously is, because there are more issues to come, but there's normally more of a feel of an ending at such times and one feels that Wilson might have had more of worth still to say).

    I was fairly pleased with this current volume of Wonder Woman. At long last, DC finally got around to letting Veronica Cale see her daughter Isadore on Themyscira. I'm not entirely sure why she is still stuck there when Maggie the Waitress/Amazon seems to be able to go and leave as she pleases. (Quick note: How pissed would Cheetah be if she found out after all this time trying to get to Themyscira that some waitress was allowed passage AND they're going to train her as an Amazon?) Still, I was I was fairly pleased with this current volume of Wonder Woman. At long last, DC finally got around to letting Veronica Cale see her daughter Isadore on Themyscira.

(Quick note: How pissed would Cheetah be if she found out after all this time trying to get to Themyscira that some waitress was allowed passage AND they're going to train her as an Amazon?) Still, I was hoping this would soften the animosity (undeserved in my opinion) between Cale and Diana. It doesn't, of course. Veronica is a villain, through and through, so of course she betrays Diana. Between all the villains she's created (Cheetah - twice!, Silver Swan, Dr. Cyber) and all the death she's caused by their creation I wish Diana would take her as a more serious threat. Also, why betray Diana now when she is the only link between seeing her daughter (maybe the temporary loss of Love is the reason but I'm not sure). At any rate, I hope Diana tells Veronica that all visitations cease until Cheetah and Silver Swan are cured. I want to see Wonder Woman take a more active role in restoring her friends' humanity. Overall, the volume was well worth the wait and I cannot wait until Wonder Woman. Vol 4: The Four Horsewomen comes out in April. P.S. The art has certainly improved since the departure of Cary Nord.

    Not my favorite Wonder Woman story. I mean, it was okay. And I get what they were trying to do with this whole "world without love" thing, but it never really felt... tangible, I guess? It's hard to explain. The whole time, while I related to what Wonder Woman was feeling, I kept also waiting for... something. I'm not sure what. I can't put my finger on it. But so often when I read a Wonder Woman story I get this sense of empowerment--whether it's girl power or just some general restored faith i Not my favorite Wonder Woman story. I mean, it was okay.

But so often when I read a Wonder Woman story I get this sense of empowerment--whether it's girl power or just some general restored faith in humanity. Even the stories that don't necessarily have a happy ending (like when she lost her twin brother), I still felt like I'd grown a little bit along with her. This story... just didn't have that. It's difficult for me to pinpoint exactly why or what could have been changed, but I'm hoping the next volume gives me a little bit more of that usual rush. (Oh... and I am not okay with her not being with Steve Trevor. That seemed to come out of nowhere. Established for a couple issues before it happened, then boom! He's all of a sudden feeling abandoned and leaves her. That may have contributed some to my overall feelings of the book, but I think it was just one piece of an overall message--the importance of love--that didn't quite click in the end.)

    Okay, so overall I'm not really happy with the ending of this... (view spoiler)[I cannot believe that Steve would leave Diana, come on, why did the authors write it like this??? (hide spoiler)] Otherwise the story is great though! We finally find out what happened to the Amazons and Diana is reunited with her mother. What I definitely didn't enjoy was the return of Cheetah, and the death she brought with her. To kill love, of all things, just seems very macabre and unnecessary.

This brought up a lot of questions though, when the godess of love died, love itself died with her. But why didn't then war die when Ares died? Or lightning when Zeus died? These other gods died in a couple of volumes back, but we never really saw the outcome of it (except when Ares died the worlds started to realine... but then I need to wonder why did Zeus' death have such little impact, seeing as he is the king of the gods?) I am very confused at this point...

    This volume starts by reuniting Diana with the rest of the Amazons, which went well, and ends with a Cheetah-heavy Year of Villains storyline, which did not go quite as well. Cheetah starts by literally killing love, which is both really on the nose and adds a lot of background justification to a lot of the stuff happening in Year of the Villain. But after that, it's kind of a mess. Cheetah is kind of a one-note character here, which is a shame.

And there's a ton of little inconsistencies that undermine the story: the sword Cheetah is using can kill gods, and Diana can block it with her bare arms. The story doesn't even end properly here, just sort of peters off. Especially annoying because this is Wilson's last issues with Wonder Woman, so somebody else will either resolve this story, or not.

    G Willow Wilson’s run on this was way too short—it felt like we only got through the first half of her umbrella arc. We have Ares and Grail still on the loose, Diana and Steve are on the outs and who are those three mysterious entities helping Grail and Cheetah?! Hopefully Steve Orlando will clue us in.

    Wilson's run comes to a suitably epic yet intimate end. It rivals Rucka's past work on the title (although the Rebirth opening arc is hard to beat). Deserves the Absolute Edition treatment, or at least a Deluxe Edition one. Wilson's run comes to a suitably epic yet intimate end.
