Publisher’s Blurb:
To march on Hell itself, you’re going to need some sensational weapons – and Wonder Woman intends to call in a few family favors to get them! Armor of Hephaestus? Check. The pistols of Eros? Check! But will any of it be enough to wrest an innocent soul from the grasp of Hades? And what does Hermes know that Diana doesn’t…yet?

Reviewer’s Comments:
I became a fan of Wonder Woman from watching the two Justice League animated series and I wanted to start reading her comics but didn’t know where to start. Thankfully, DC came out with the new 52. So far, I’m loving writer Brian Azzarello and artist Cliff Chiang’s run! It’s an excellent series both visually and story wise, and issue eight is no different.

First of all let’s start with the cover. All of the covers for each issue in this series have been amazing, and this cover doesn’t disappoint. This is a good example of a cover that catches the reader’s eye and this would definitely grab a person’s attention who hasn’t been reading Wonder Woman. The artwork throughout the book is fantastic, Chiang as always does his thing. I love the way how Chiang draws Hades. Besides Wonder Woman, he’s my favorite Chiang drawn character.
Wonder Woman and Hermes go straight to hell in order to rescue Zola from Hades’ imprisonment. There are some deep and morbid truths that are revealed as well as ass kicking performed both by Wonder Woman and Hermes along the way. At the end of the story-spoiler alert-somebody dies leaving an excellent cliffhanger for what will happen next issue.

The only complaint that I have is there’s no mention or closure about what was revealed about the Amazons last issue. I know this was a point of conflict for a lot of readers of the book and I hope that Azzarello resolves it soon.
Overall this book was great and I’m looking forward to what future issues will bring.
