Wonder Woman: Amazons Attack!
Collects AMAZONS ATTACK! #1-6.
Complete and utter sh!t. The editing completely ruins what story there is; what's left is a bunch of characters either acting wildly out of character or like morons. And WHERE DA FRAK WAS WONDER WOMAN???
Probably THE WORST comic I've read - this month, this year, possibly ever.
In a series of utterly contrived circumstances, the Amazons, a peaceful, honorable society led by Queen Hippolyta, completely act out of character, ally with Circe (who is their long-time ENEMY - s ...more
Where to begin? First, this accumulated volume suffers greatly from a terrible editorial policy wherein the cross-over title contains little of the primary action or plot elements that push along the major story-arc. Most primary plot twists and developments took plac ...more
This story has a faster pace as opposed to the previous graphic novel. The president is involved. Even Cassie & Kara make an appearance in one chapter. Who is pulling the strings??? Circe? Queen Hippolyta? The Bana? Find out in Wonder Woman: Amazons Attack! ⚔
I thought this volume followed Wonder Woman: Love and Murder (Wonder Woman #6-10), but Amazons Attack! is apparently it's own run of Amazons Attack! #1-6. It actually backtracks the storyline a bit with plot elements that occurred in Love and Murder interspersed within Amazons Attack which is a bit confusing.
Perhaps Wonder Woman #11-13 aren't collected in a graphic novel since Wonder Woman: The Circ ...more
I don't believe I've read anything else by Will Pfeiffer, so I can't speak to who he is as a writer or a person, but, man, this reads like he hates strong women (I'm not saying that he does--just that this reads like that). Let's just start with the first four pages (which include a 2-page splash of the Amazon army): in about 13 individual panels, 2 Amazon soldiers kill a father and young (maybe 10?) boy at the Lincoln Memorial, for just being there. So, a nation of women that ...more
I'm giving the book 2 stars because it actually started off rather well and I was willing to over look certain things but then it became one of the most convoluted WW stories I have ever read.
That being said this was more a JLA book, I mean a veritable who's who of the JLA showed up. Bats, Supe, Black Canary, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Power Girl, Wonder Girl and Martian Manhunter to name a few.
Circe brings Hi ...more
Comic books always do this don't they? interesting characters, exciting action, complex story threads....all leading to the same damn place. The day is saved for now but the big bad is coming.
In this story Wonder Woman's mother attacks America for...reasons that seem to change on a dime (I think the writer couldn't decide).
This leads to a savage, brutal war that we see in broad strokes.
It all comes down to a final showdown, no a reveal, no a deus ex machina, no a double swerve.
Its a ...more
This is isn't Wonder Woman at her finest. This is hardly even Wonder Woman at her most present. She'll stop by once or twice, but mostly you're treated to Amazons butchering the shit out of innoc ...more
Circe resurrect Queen Hippolyta and when she asks about her daughter Diana, Circe tells her the American government has her. The queen then declares war on mankind by unleashing the Amazons on American soil to destroy them. While the Justice League tries to protect humans and Wonder Woman confronts her moth ...more
And where were The Flashes? I don’t remember one showing up.
Aiding Wonder Woman in halting the war and preventing more casualties than necessary are members of ...more
This, gentle readers, is what happens when a tie-in multibook event tries to make as much money as possible from collections that are neither coherent or enjoyable to read. How do I hate thee, Amazons Attack? Let me count the ways:
-Every damn character is speaking and acting in ways that make no sense for them. I am not even sure it would be possible to choose just one terrible example to properly express this, but I guess the best way to say this is Hippolyta is ...more
The premise was interesting. Wonder Woman's mother, the queen of the Amazons, learns that her daughter has been imprisoned and unleashes all of her power to gain her freedom. Unfortunately the follow-through was terrible!
I have two main gripes against it. The first is that so much of the story is missing. The tale is apparently lashed together by one line of comics while there are many other aspects to this story that are left out and only to ...more
The story has incredible potential and the art is amazing (hence the two star rating) but the way the story is presented is beyond horrible! All the good parts and scenes where Wonder Woman is supposed to shine are “presented” via a small paragraph at the beginning of each chapter.
You don’t get to see/read any of the really meaty parts of the story. It’s like tuning in to your favorite weekly TV show a ...more
The artwork in this graphic novel was excellent but that is about the only redeeming quality it possesses.
I think I have read enough graphic now to honestly say that there was no real way to follow this one. I ended ...more
