Review:

I wanted to read the entire Wonder Woman: Earth One story but this just collects the first two volumes, which ended with the words “to be concluded”. I guess Comixology never put up the third and final volume but whatever. So I can only review the first two-thirds of whatever this story was going to be.

The one thing I was most excited about was seeing Grant Morrison’s take on the Wonder Woman character.

However, this was just okay and just felt like it was an updated version of the character’s origin. Now I’m not too familiar with the Earth One continuity other than it being a New 52 thing where it exists as DC’s version of what Marvel did with their Ultimate universe. Basically, it is a way for them to reboot characters in an alternate timeline.

Having now read this, it didn’t feel necessary and there was nothing here that made me think that it was a better take on the character or those around her.

I mostly enjoyed the art and at least the plot moved swiftly but it’s a pretty big disappointment considering how much I generally enjoy Morrison’s stuff.

Rating: 6/10
Pairs well with: I’m assuming other Earth One stories, as well as modern Wonder Woman comics.
