Wowsers!

Even as she stands among queens and goddesses, Hippolyta is THE QUEEN.

Kelly Thompson teams up with three superstar artists to give a beautiful and enthralling new perspective on the history of the Amazons.

For a long-time Wonder Woman fanboy like me, this is pure catnip: a tribute to all that has come before that also shows why these characters will persist for ages to come.

FOR REFERENCE:

Trivia: Gene Ha has one two-page spread in Book Two that pays tribute to women throughout history. He lays out the names and inspirations behind all the cameos here:

Even not having read previous arcs, this was a very fun read. Literally. I've missed books with a sense of humor that's part of a character instead of the point of the book.

3.5. Wonderfully outrageous and very well-executed feminist SF - if you imagine The Handmaid's Tale with a healthy dose of intersectional feminism and a sense of humor, adapted into an cult 80s film, you begin to approximate Bitch Planet. The story and characters have yet to totally engage me, but I am hoping for great things from this series.

Pretty Deadly is a beautifully written and illustrated western that takes the form of a folk tale. Emma Rios and Jordie Bellaire join forces to create beautifully expressive illustrations. My only complaint is that the nonlinear storytelling makes the first few chapters confusing and it is easy to miss a few major plot points until all is revealed in the end.
