I'm of two minds on this TPB. If I just read it as a story about Greek gods and a half mortal who's fight them, and trying to save humans from their grasps it's a good, even great story. I love how each of the Greek gods is drawn and portrayed, the art totally fit who their characters were.

Unfortunately it isn't a random story, instead it's a Wonder Woman TPB. And I'm still quite pissed at what they're doing to the character.

We meet more of Wonder Woman's family. Hephaestus, Eros, Aphrodite, Hades, etc. And Wonder Woman and her posse go after the pregnant Zola, which is a bit hard since they have to literally go to hell to do it.

It's a solid three star TPB, I just found it lacking as a Wonder Woman TPB. ( )

I have read these fantastic New 52 Wonder Woman books out of order, but they are no worse for that. What a splendid idea to link Wonder Woman's story to the magnificently dysfunctional pettiness of the Greek Gods! In this edition, Wonder Woman faces conflict, spite and betrayal from various of these beings as she strives to protect the unborn child of Zola, the last and latest mortal woman to be impregnated by mighty Zeus. Hades wants to marry her. Apollo and Artemis want to destroy her. But Wonder Woman is a child of Zeus too -- and she holds her own. Azarello and Chiang tap into the rich stories of the Greek myths, and mix in their own with great style. Oh yes, and having already read War in this series, I love it that Hades gives an intimation of what is to come in that book. ( )

Wonder Woman continues on her quest to protect Zoe (who may be carrying a child who will kill Zeus) from the Greek gods, each of whom have their own plan for the infant. In this trade WW has to figure out how to escape from Hades, who wants her as his bride. The Underworld is fairly imaginatively creepy, but I couldn't help but think how much better it would have come across in the hands of an inspired artist like JH Williams III. The petty but vicious squabbles between the gods didn't interest me much, and their dialog fell flat for me. WW is still the best, though--I'm glad Azzarello hasn't made her too gritty and let her maintain a moral center. ( )

Wonder Woman goes down to the underworld to save Zola from Hades. I had also read these in issues a long time ago. I continue to be amazed by the different ways that the artists came up with to portray the greek gods and I still love the story. I'm really enjoying the reread. ( )
