Graphic Novel Review: Wonder Woman Vol 1: The Lies (Rebirth)

Wonder Woman Vol. 1: The Lies (Rebirth)

Heroic. Iconic. Unstoppable. Armed with her Lasso of Truth and imbued with the power of the gods themselves, Princess Diana of Themyscira—known to the world as Wonder Woman—is one of the greatest superheroes in history.

But who is she…really? Not even Wonder Woman herself knows for sure. Diana’s links to both the Amazons and the Gods of Olympus have been severed. Her memories are a tangle of contradictions that even her lie-detecting lasso cannot untangle.

To solve the riddle of her origin, she must embark on her greatest quest of all: finding a way back to her vanished home. To get there, she must team up with her greatest enemy, the feral beast-woman, Cheetah. Will this unlikely alliance shine the light of truth on Diana’s darkest secrets, or bury them—and her—forever?

Wonder Woman (Rebirth) begins to question herself. And she sets out on a journey to track down her roots and history. But her home seems to have disappeared.

This latest Wonder Woman story is engaging and action-packed. Her team-up with Cheetah is very memorable and dramatic. The artwork is fantastic and matches the dark tone. With plenty of suspense, mysticism, and monstrous creatures – this graphic novel is hard to put down. There’s an exciting, climactic showdown and a sweet ending with a familiar friend. I can’t wait for the next in the series.
