Wonder Woman is EVERYTHING.
Hey! Howdy! What's up?!
Back again to get you guys all ramped up about new and upcoming books! This review is over the graphic novel version of Leigh Bardugo's Wonder Woman: Warbringer illustrated by the extremely talented Kit Seaton and adapted by Louise Simonson. I got the chance to review this book thanks to the publisher DC Entertainment and Netgalley in hopes to give an honest review on my thoughts and feelings on this beautiful book.
So lets jump in!
Let me start by saving I have not read Bardugo's Wonder Woman and after reading the graphic novel I am intrigued to see how she portrays this part of the DC universe...
But I loved the illustrations of this version of the book. Seaton's drawings really age down Diana without making her unrecognizable which I appreciate a lot. I also am not normally a fan of the limited color style of a lot of the newer graphic novels but the blue tones really work here for me for some reason.
Now sadly. I found the storyline itself to fall a little flat. There was very little action overall in which we see Wonder Woman in action which was disappointing but I also felt a little hazy on what the overall meaning of Warbringer is and also where Alia's brother fell in with all of the lore and such. I got the gist of it all towards the end of the story but it still felt fuzzy as to why it was this way and how Alia was made to be and all that. What I don't like is I'm really not sure if this is the adaptation's fault or what.
I gave Wonder Woman: Warbringer the graphic novel three and a half stars. I wish there had been a clearer way of painting the picture of the Warbringer history that alone I think would have made the story feel more energized but overall this was a lackluster decent version of Wonder Woman.
These pages take me places and I cannot wait to see where we go next!
All my love!
