Classic Comic Review #9 : Wonder Woman Odyssey Volume One
Why am I reviewing older comics?
Well because I’m still sorta new at this and I’m trying to catch up on reading the ones that I wasn’t able to read growing up. Also there are many people out there who are either new to comics or are seasoned pros who may want to revisit some of the older stuff. In fact these comics never get old. Besides, there are many people out there who are reviewing the new comics. So without further ado, I give you this week’s Classic Comic Review…

An excellent way to read comics (especially if you’re low on cash), is to head to your local library. That is how I found this book. I have heard of it before and since I’m reading the DC’s New 52 Wonder Woman (which is an excellent, excellent comic!) and I definitely wanted to check this one out.
This storyline is its own and doesn’t follow any continuity. The plot starts out with Wonder Woman caught between two worlds-one of her Amazonian past and the one which she presently exists in. Something happened in the past that altered the timeline and caused the Amazons to fall. Their queen-Diana’s mother-is dead while the rest of her people are have been slaughtered or scattered to the four corners of the earth. Diana has been raised hidden from those who continue to stamp out the rest of the Amazons and is a now a young woman who must protect the surviving Amazons, find out what happened in the past to have caused her present existence in order to fight , defeat, and change it.
I enjoyed reading this first volume and I’m looking forward to reading the second volume-which is out now-the ending definitely left me wanting to know how this story ends. It’s an excellent and amazing story. The art is beautiful. So next time when you visit your local library find out if they have a collection of comics. You’ll never know what you’ll find!
If you have any classic comics that you want me to review please email me at email@example.com. Remember comics must have been published before 2010 (though on occasion the Loki side of me will bend this rule a little).Classic Comic Review, comics, DC Comics, Michael Straczynski, super heroes, wonder woman, Wonder Woman Odyssey
