I've been trying to divorce myself from monthly comics and focus on the the Trade Compilations (especially the DCU and Marvel titles!)

Most of the monthlies I stil get are smaller titles (likeThe Beauty #1, Faster Than Light #1, Black Science, Vol. 1: How to Fall Forever, etc.) that my FLCS puts aside for me.

But I had to break that new tradtion when I saw this on the shelf. The cover and interior art are both stunning, just the style that I love, and it addresses an exciting area that we haven't

Received in a Comixology bundle that came with my advanced ticket for Wonder Woman

I liked this well enough and I think it's a very good addition to the bundle to read before the movie. It gives a good luck at what newer interpretations of Diana as a child are, how she was different from the other girls from the beginning. And it explains the mythology behind Themyscira, the Amazonians, and Hippolyta.

Bundle included:
Wonder Woman (2006-) #1
The Legend of Wonder Woman (2015-) #1

Nice intro for children. Good artwork.

First of all, I would like to warn you that the following review will be coming from a Comic Book newbie, and as any personal opinion, as subjective as it can be.

Seeing as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice made Wonder Woman reconquer her presence in pop culture, it is no surprise to see DC Comics taking the opportunity to bring us new and hopefully refreshing projects. One of them is the all-ages mini series called The Legend of Wonder Woman which piqued my curiosity right away.

As you could
I've never read any Wonder Woman before, but I saw people talking about this and thought it might make a good starting point. I'm very keen on the art style, and so far it's more in mythological territory so I'm quite happy.

Recommends it for: everyone

This is the listing for the digital #1.
I just read the first 3 printed issues (which collects the digital version's #1-9).

This is the book I've wanted to exist since my niece was born and I began plotting to share with her all of the cool things I love... one of which is Wonder Woman.

But really, the idea of Wonder Woman has always been so much better than the comics have actually achieved in their execution. And who knows if The Legend of Wonder Woman

I loved the first comic, and I can't wait to see where this story goes!

I cringed hard at the implication that not having a child is an unimaginably terrible fate, but this story is so good that I loved it anyway. Structurally, it feels like a fairy tale or a children's book, heavy on narration rather than dialogue and bursting with beautiful art.

I don't quite like the childish narrative. Although the art is great the mythology gets a bit confusing since she is trying sort of maintain the clay origin while at the same incorporate more Greek mythology aspects. I don't it's just a bit weird to start with Diana as a child.

A bit of a slow start, but it is intriguing. The art is nice too.

Cool to read the origin, but it was a tease. I wanted more. It was so short. We don't see past Diana's childhood. I guess that's how they get ya.

This is a review for the whole series,

Seriously, I loved this. We have Diana growing up and learning from her friend and mentor what it means to be a warrior and to be strong and about the power of friendship, love, loyalty, and family. She’s got a wonderful relationship with her mother and they may not always see eye-to-eye about things but they love and respect one another and their choices. We have Diana growing as a warrior, leader, and woman. We have different women, with different tastes,

"Hippolyta built a nation of women, apart from greed and hatred." Diana grew up on the hidden island of Themyscira. She was raised to be queen one day but trained in secret to be a warrior. She felt that she had a different destiny than the one her mother wanted for her. Diana eventually finds her destiny as Wonder Woman. The characters in this graphic novel have depth and are fun to follow. The illustrations reflect the era well.

The Legend of Wonder Woman is not a retelling of Wonder Woman's golden age origin. It takes the splendor of those first comics and imagines it in a fresh, creative fashion. A maternal narrative beats at the center of the story and the focus remains on Diana, Hippolyta's love for her, and the will to help others. This is a series everyone should pick up, especially if you live Wonder Woman. There's magic to be explored on Themyscira and beyond!

I watched Linda Carter's Wonder Woman as a kid, but I don't recall the character's origin story, and I never read any of the other comics. Whether or not this story is true to Wonder Woman's history I don't know, and I don't care. This story sets up nicely how Wonder Woman came to be, and it does so with strong, vibrant art.

I was initially put off with the idea of doing yet another origin story.
Then I saw the cover for #5

With that said, this IS an origin story in the first issue, but it's not a bad one. Is it reconning how terrible New 52's was? God, hopefully. Either way, the art is good and it's not a bad read. I just hope it gets more interesting.

This comic book is a great introduction to the format of the series. It takes the Amazon's origin and return it to a modern twist of the original origin of the Amazons. I prefer this to the New 52's origin. I hope the live action Wonder Woman Movie will follow this origin. I recommend it to all ages.

Short but cool look at a reboot

Not sure if it is a retelling or a reboot, but the first issue is cool if about 1/4 as long as it should be. Good art, nice pacing,great price for what you get.

The beginning

Short and sweet, but a great start! The art is stunning, really beautiful and the beginning of this retelling of wonder woman already has me hooked!

Wonder woman's origin part 1

Beautiful artwork, fine story. I never get tired of the amazing Amazon. A nice addition to her legacy as a cornerstone of DC

A very interesting look at the origin of Diana and her road to becoming Wonder Woman. It fits into the New 52 pretty good and I'm hoping is the basis for the movie's Diana.

Way better than the New 52 story arc and a bit truer to her original origin story. Loved the artwork and dialogue. Wonder Woman is back!

Read for pre-cinematic reminders!

This origin comic gives us baby and child Diana. Today at the movie I caught myself laughing at the naming exchange when she became Diana Prince.
