I didn't like this as much as the original novel. Translating prose to comics is difficult and I think that's what happened here. Trying to include all the narration in the prose version made for some boring passages in the GN. The art was OK, but I didn't like the color palette at all. It was very dark and muted almost as if the whole story took place at dusk. I know this DC Ink line of books has made sparse use of colors in a good way but it just wasn't the same in this one.

Diana. Daughter of immortals. Princess of Themyscira. Wonder Woman.

The famed DC superhero has many names and she has been adapted and reincarnated many times. First appearing in 1941 before her first feature in 1942, there have been films, TV shows, and books. And now she is once again welcomed back to the comic book page in Louise Simonson’s adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer.

The story follows Diana Prince, long

This one had a special place in my heart, especially since it includes Wonder Woman, but mainly because I loved Leigh Bardugo's novel version of this story. I really couldn't get enough of that story and was saddened when it came to an end. So, of course, when I saw this go up, I knew I wanted a chance at reviewing it.

Even though this wasn't exactly as the novel, or as detailed, it had much of what I was looking and hoping for. Especially, when it came to the graphics included in this version.

I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Review can also be found on *Milky Way of Books*

The adaptation of Leigh's book gave me an even more amazing Wonder Woman vibe. The story is fairly done and the art is quite well. Diana has always been an amazing character and seeing her in her teens as a warrior was also very exciting. If you have read the book you'll fairly enjoy the graphic novel adaptation too.

This is a good graphic novel adaptation of the YA novel, but the story is not communicated as well in this medium. If you want to get the full story and also love the graphic novel medium, I would recommend reading the original novel first.

I have a confession to make — Wonder Woman is a character that I don’t care much about. Hear me out, I love who she is & what she does; I love the Amazons & the concept of an island where only women live. I love everything about Wonder Woman.

However, I don’t think I’ve found the right Wonder Woman series to consume. What it boils down to is the writer & who’s bringing

Warbringer is a faithful adaptation of the original story. Having read the source material, I am confident this is one of the best adaptations I’ve read. The plot follows the story, with the art adding to the battle scenes. Fans who find one medium or the other won’t miss anything by choosing one over the other. I actually enjoyed the graphic novel even more than the book!

You know when you read a graphic novel based on a book and leaves out all the relevant information from the book that is critical to the story but they decided it wasn’t important enough to have it in the graphic novel? Yeah well, that was the case with Warbringer!
What I love about how this story the most, is that it isn’t for Hollywood, it isn’t Diana meeting a guy and her world changes and she must do everything she can for him and blahhhh blahhh blah. It is based on two young girls and on

Diana longs to fit in with the other Amazons, all of whom have earned their places in Themyscira, but no matter how hard she tries she will always be the girl of clay her mother shaped. Until a mysterious girl washes up on the shores of her home, and it is up to Diana to save her people and everything she holds dear.
This has to be one of my favourite DC comics yet! With Leigh Bardugo's wit, stunning artwork and all the badassery of Wonderwoman, what's not to love?
Diana is a determined and brave

I have tried to read the original novel of this a few times and can just never get into, but I'm just so interested in Diana and wanted to get a new story by Leigh Bardugo. So, when I was approved for this I was really happy. The artwork in this graphic novel is amazing. I loved the characters and the plot was really cool with the gods and lore behind it all.

I absolutely loved this one. It correlated closely to the DC Icons book that it was based from. Diana has always been a super strong female character, so adding her into this graphic novel will definitely be great for future generations. Diana can set a role model in many forms but being able to have the same story translate this story from words to visuals is revolutionary at spreading literacy to younger readers.
The art was beautiful and the story was powerful. Loved every second of this.

Well its safe to say I loved this as much as I loved the book.

I enjoyed the art and I felt like the pace of the graphic novel was well done and
matched the pace of the book almost exactly.

The graphic novel of Wonder Woman : Warbringer goes along perfectly with
the graphic novel for Batman : Nightwaker and I look forward to owning them together.

Thanks go to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. When I saw Wonder Woman AND Leigh Bardugo combined in one book, I knew it was going to be something special, and Wonder Woman: Warbringer did not disappoint. As much as I loved the story, perhaps my favorite aspect of the book is the way that the artist combined a mostly cool color palette of blues and grays with judicious use of warm tones at specific parts of the ...more

I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest and voluntary review. I was in no way compensated for this review.

The DC Comics team has brought to life yet another DC Icons novel! This time it's Leigh Barudgo's Wonder Woman: Warbinger. Louise Simonson was the adapter and the gorgeous illustrations were created by Kit Seaton! I have to say that I really enjoyed this color scheme! It's very faint colors that make Wonder Woman who she eventually becomes! At least, that's how I saw

I've always been curious of Leigh Bardugo writing Wonder Woman and when I saw the opportunity to check the Graphic Novel, I had to get it!
And oh I'm so glad I did!
This story was very good, from an insecure Diana with the Amazons to the great Diana we've all come to love after being battle-tested. Loved it!!
This was a good adaptation of the prose novel, but it wasn't quite as cohesive of a story due to the truncated plot.

I love Wonder Woman so seeing this story told with the new graphics is wonderful.
I enjoyed this story more the second round which could have to do with the brilliant illustrations. I'm really glad this series is getting an illustrated version along with the written novels. I love both styles but most people come from the comic books or animated movies and being able to see them is often better.

We don't often get to see Diana as a teenager she's always depicted as Wonder Woman so getting an

I received a copy of Wonder Woman: Warbringer through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Odds are pretty good that you’ve heard of Leigh Bardugo’s novel, Wonder Woman: Warbringer. Set in the DC universe, it followed Princess Diana in her early years. It’s part of a series that DC has been working on lately, and it’s been getting a lot of ink.
This is not that novel. But it’s close. This is the graphic novel adaptation of the book. And really, it was just a matter of time before

Thank you to @dczoombooks for sharing an advance copy of Wonder Woman: Warbringer (the Graphic Novel) with the #kidlitexchange network. This book will be released January 7, 2019. All opinions are my own.

One day, she will be one of the greatest heroes, Wonder Woman, but for now she is a daughter of Earth and princess of the Amazons. Diana feels that she has something to prove to her Amazon sisters as she is not truly one of them. She did not die in battle with a prayer
There's a certain point when reading Elseworlds or alternate universe stories of popular characters that reach when veers away for the character's essential traits or character and into more a vehicle for the author's tropes or stories. I also think of Kelly Sue DeConnick's saying that people like a story or character because it resonates something within them.

I read the DC Ink Breaking Glass, which diverges from the usual Harley Quinn story and loved it because I like the stories Mariko Tamaki

Wonder Woman: Warbringer tells the story of a teenage Diana of Themyscira who is struggling to find her place in the world of Amazons. On an island untouchable by the outside world, Diana lives feeling isolated from her sister Amazons. Each of them died in a glorious battle, but Diana was born to the island, and feels unable to prove herself. When she sees a ship sinking
This is the graphic novel format of Leigh Bardugo's Wonder Woman: Warbringer. Bardugo has brought a contemporary YA feel to Wonder Woman.

When a strange girl comes to the shores of the island Diana breaks all the rules and courts disaster for everyone.

"Wonder Woman: Warbringer" is the graphic version of the well-received novel of the same name by Leigh Bardugo; the novel is part of the DC Icons series, in which popular YA writers create adventures for DC's biggest superheroes.

I'm more a fan of graphic novels than I am of the superhero genre, and I didn't know much at all about Wonder Woman before reading the book. I ultimately felt it did a good job of introducing a reader to her backstory while also sending her on a new adventure. I could

What another amazing DC Graphic Novel!

Wonder Woman is a personal favorite (though I haven't read the original comics, only read and seen recent books/movies) she still is a personal favorite in the superhero world. I loved this twist on the storyline though. How it's not just solely about WW saving the world, there's another person who's needing her help. So they team up together to see if they can make this all work out. The moments that bring in Greek Gods and Goddesses is also an amazing
I can definitely say after reading this graphic novel that I am very interested in reading the novel it is adapted from, but I have mixed feelings about the adaptation itself.

The beginning was slow and wordy. I felt the art itself receding into the background as I tried to take in all of the text. I'm grateful that this problem disappears as the story goes on, but not the best first impression. I also thought the initial color scheme was lacking. The Batman: Nightwalker adaptation had a much
