A massive omnibus of the George Pèrez Wonder Woman series. I'd read one trade paperback before (Gods and Mortals) but not the whole thing. I really like the way Wonder Woman is embedded in the Greek myths (an idea continued by Brian Azarello and Cliff Chiang later in the New 52 series). The gods are *real* in her experience, and her biggest fights are with these immortals. The other interesting thing about this series is the exploration of the supporting characters: Hippolyte, Phillipus, Julia and Vanessa Kapetalis, Mindy Mayer; even the gods Hermes and Ares undergo some transformations. There is one obvious point where some other publication has silently advanced the plot (a Superman/Wonder Woman team-up), which is slightly annoying. Overall a strong comic which shows Wonder Woman's a human and mythological sides. ( )

Tasked with introducing a post-Crisis version of Wonder Woman that both fit the other new DC heroes while honoring the character's history, George Pérez delivered and then some. Pérez and Len Wein dove deep into the mythological background of Diana of Themyscira, telling stories rich with the presence of Olympian gods and monsters. Pérez's art strains the bonds of the four panel comic book structure. His lush backgrounds and detailed character designs remain among the most impressive comic book art. His depictions of Olympus resemble M.C. Escher's "Relativity," blending the aesthetic trappings of Ancient Greece with a modern spin that comic book readers would expect of higher beings. Finally, the inks by Bruce Patterson and colors by Tatjana Wood & Carl Gafford add to the richness on each page. While William Moulton Marston's original version of Wonder Woman was interesting and offered glimpses of her mythical origins, his stories focused more on her life in patriarch's world. Pérez strikes the perfect blend between the two. Fans of the character or those looking for somewhere to start exploring Wonder Woman's story should start here. This omnibus edition collects Wonder Woman nos. 1-24 and Wonder Woman Annual no. 1 from the late 1980s. ( )
