The Vol. 1 wiki last edited by fesak on 05/05/13 08:29AM View full history

The first six issues of the critically acclaimed new WONDER WOMAN series are collected in hardcover! Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, has kept a secret from her daughter all her life – and when Wonder Woman learns who her father is, her life will shatter like brittle clay. The only one more shocked than Diana by this revelation? Bloodthirsty Hera – so why is her sinister daughter, Strife, so eager for the truth to be told? Superstar writer Brian Azzarello creates a new direction for one of DC's best-known heroes, with spectacular art by Cliff Chiang and Tony Akins!

Back Blurb

Wonder Woman is a woman apart. Raised as a daughter by the Queen of the Amazons, the warrior princess Diana is different from her countrywomen. They've all heard the legend of how she was formed from clay to give the childless Queen the daughter she dreamed of --- and they treat her like an outsider and outcast because of it, no matter how hard she fights for justice as a superhero in the outside world.

But far from the Amazon's Paradise Island, the gods of Olympus are playing their own dark games. The prodigal sun Apollo is making his move for Father Zeus' vacant throne, and both vengeful gods and innocent humans are caught in the crossfire.

And at the beating, bloody heat of the conflict? Wonder Woman, and a secret will shatter everything she thought she knew. Wonder Woman is about to learn the truth about her origin. And when she does, blood will run...

Experience a bold new beginning for an iconic character in WONDER WOMAN: BLOOD, one of the most acclaimed comics of the year, from writer BRIAN AZZARELLO (JOKER, 100 BULLETS) and artist CLIFF CHIANG (NEIL YOUNG'S GREENDALE, ZATANNA). Collects Wonder Woman #1-6.
