Lynda Carter for me is Wonder Woman. I’ve not read her comic before though I’ve seen her guest spot in a few so I was curious how Azzarello and Chiang were going to portray her. And two words come to mind. Warrior. Dark.
Let’s start with ‘warrior’. Within an instant of us first meeting Wonder Woman she goes from calm and serene into battle. And it’s ‘dark’ because well it just is. And saying why would give it away. Though the horses is what you might find most disturbing.
And it’s the horse scene that best illustrate why the art is probably the best I’ve encountered so far. I speed read it the first time as I wanted to offer an instant opinion to someone. Big mistake as Chiang says a lot in his panels as his transitions are very clever. something you’d miss without lingering. Good job I went back and read it.
Also the narrative is clever as even though the opening and closing scenes are book ends their narrative weaves and interacts into the middle section. And it’s subtle and clever.
Saying all that, lots is introduced and there are lot more questions than answers. But the combination teasing story and outstanding art means I’m definitely back for issue #2!
