World War Wonder Woman
When a shipwreck occurs off the coast of the isle of the Amazons, Diana rescues a teenage girl Alia, not known that her life is going to change forever and that a war is coming. The very island is trying to kill the girl and consulting the Oracle she finds out she is the Warbringer, a descendant of Helen of Troy who is destined by bring war to the world of man through her blood. Going against the advice of the Oracle she decides to help the girl and leaves the island to her first adventure.
This story is another origin story for Wonder Woman, but this time set in the modern day. It was originally a novel and seems to be more grounded than other comic book storylines.
The artwork is good and the colours are a lot more subdued with the focus being on the story and not wild creations.
There are not a lot of characters in the storyline so you get to know more about them. I was confused with some of them as they seemed a bit similar with Theo and Jason being pretty much the same.
I would recommend this story if you enjoyed the movie of Wonder Woman or liked the character and want something a bit different where she goes off on her own.
