Fate brings a shipwreck to the shores of Themyscira, the Amazons’ island home. Diane makes the decision to defy her people edict not to leave the island. She jumps into the water to save a Warbringer, a young woman in a long line of catalysts that have started wars and famine through the ages. Wonder Woman takes it on herself to battle an endless number of adversaries in order to help this young woman end the curse.
I enjoyed this story of the teenage Wonder Woman. It’s an adventure, a story of friendship, a trip into DC mythology, and even a little bit of a fish-out-of-water tale (Wonder Woman on the streets of NYC). Some solid action and new background to Wonder Woman’s character make this a recommended read for those who saw and enjoyed the new film last year.
4 out of 5 stars.
