Review: Wonder Woman: Gods and Mortals by George Perez

— feeling love
Wonder Woman, Vol. 1: Gods and Mortals - Bruce Patterson, Greg Potter, Len Wein, George Pérez

Wow. Just stunning and unexpected, and a great remedy for the bad taste that Wondie's been leaving in my mouth since the New 52 reboot. Rich and complex, with beautiful artwork. Instead of rejecting or trying to change the character or her origin, Perez fully embraces it, proving you can make Diana compelling in her own environment and, fancy that, can even include the goddesses and other female characters as something other than vindictive harpies or mother figures! Textured, complex, richly done. A joy and a welcome palate cleanser.
