This is the last of the George Perez piloted Wonder Woman, or at least the last that's been collected in trades. I really enjoyed his perspective on the character, and the heavily mythological backing she had here. And the art is beautiful, of course.

The Good: Modern comics can be fun, but, old-school ones tend to be a blast. The art style of these comics made them more enjoyable, and Wonder Woman finds herself in some insane situations in these comics. This volume has some fun moments, but...

The Bad: It also can be downright dull at times. One long comic in particular is especially boring. Fans of DC Comics' top superheroine might be disappointed by this, even if it is a "classic" volume. Plus, some profanity, sexual references, and sultry

Destiny Calling is the fourth volume of George Perez' Wonder Woman series.

It begins with the investigation into Myndi Mayers' death. Sadly, it was the form of a white powder that killed her and not the nefarious Skeeter LaRue, but he did end up getting what he deserved. It's just a sad ending to Myndi's story. In the following chapter, the Gods of Olympus reveal their plans to Wonder Woman, Hippolyte, and Menalippe about their plan for 'cosmic migration' and how they need Wonder Woman to help t

A nice finish to the relaunched Wonder Woman by George Pérez. There's plenty of places to take it, but it has a nice finality to it at the same time.

It's funny how different Wonder Woman is here than she has become in more modern takes. She's a little more willing to be the Warrior Princess recently. Her she fights very hard to not kill her enemies. Later on she will comment on her lack of Rogues by stating that she takes care of them.

These are great comics and I love the fact that not every iss

Pandering, Simplistic, Inconsistent crap.

George Perez can draw. His images of Wonder Woman are iconic interpretations of the character; sadly, this volume's only redeeming quality is his art. Dealing with the Grecian pantheon, Wonder Woman finds herself torn between personal responsibilities in Boston and familial duties on Paradise Island. As the she attempts to reconcile both, Hermes continues to show up and meddle in everything. The majority of this tome seems to deal with the fallout of a battle with Ares and the build-up of Vaness ...more

Reading this volume of Wonder Woman, you start to wonder if this is around where Perez got removed from the project, and whether it was actually his choice. So bogged down in mythology that, having read ahead, has very little to do with the future of the series and so so dull until the very end, which almost feels thrown together in a "well, Wonder Woman has to do something heroic, right?" kind of way...

I'm a huge Wonder Woman booster, but it's no wonder people struggle with her as a character w

I really enjoyed this series by George Perez. He returned to the roots of WW and told some entertaining stories.

I can see why it's so beloved, but for me the Pérez run is a little too bogged down in the mythology aspect. Which is weird, because I'm a huge fan of Greek mythology. I guess it's just because I'm more interested in WW's character and her relationships than I am with her devotion to the gods. The art is nice, the writing is generally very good, and it can serve as a good introduction to WW. For me, though, the focus on Olympus made it a chore at times to get through.

I guess I just don't get this George Perez run. I know it's classic and all that, but I just don't like it. It's split between Diana hanging out with a mother/daughter duo and melodramatic Amazon stuff. On top of that they are so narration heavy. Just not what I'm looking for. I want to see Wonder Woman being Wonder Woman, not just a naive goddess. I want her to fight bad guys and be cool. This is not for me.

I've enjoyed most of George Perez's run, but this volume just left me bored. There's little that happens and even the Greek adventure fails to spark interest. The art is gorgeous as ever, but I think Perez was losing his direction of the plot.

There was a great storyline about the difference between being Diana Prince and being Wonder Woman, and all that those persona entail. Not too much cosmic nonsense.

The last of the Perez run, and I was sad to see it go. Not the best of his work, and several small storylines rather than one arc, but still quite entertaining.

Why it says I read it in 1987: I own the first 60 something first printing issues of the George Perez run and treasure them heart breakingly.
