Thank you to NetGalley and DC Comics for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
I was really excited to read this because Wonder Woman. Need I say more? But I was kind of disappointed. I didn’t like how it started out. All of the violence and scantily clad women. It didn’t sit well with me.
I also didn’t really like any of the characters. I found them all so annoying. There didn’t seem to be any depth to any of them. The Fat-Amy like sidekick was the worst though. Make up your own characters, don’t go copying what’s “popular.” The whole ‘love you for who you are’ thing is awesome, but there was also fat-shaming which isn’t okay. I get that it happens in real life, but if it’s not in our entertainment then maybe it wouldn’t be in our reality.
I also didn’t really enjoy the plot. It confused me sometimes with the whole jumping between timeline things. Diana was on trial for helping man kind so it jumped between her story telling and the trail itself. I also didn’t understand what was going on at times, which is frustrating, especially with pictures.
I don’t think I would recommend this.
