"For millennia, the Amazons of Paradise Island have created a thriving society away from the blight of man. One resident, however, is not satisfied with this secluded life--Diana, Princess of the Amazons, knows there is more in this world and wants to explore, only to be frustrated by her protective mother, Hippolyta. Diana finds her escape when Air Force pilot Steve Trevor, the first man she has ever seen, crashes onto their shores. With his life hanging in the balance, Diana ventures into the long forbidden world of men. The Amazons chase after her and bring her back to Paradise Island in chains to face trial for breaking their oldest law--staying separated from the world that wronged them"-- Back cover of Volume 1.

This started off in typical Morrison fashion but ended quite conventionally. I'm a fan of Morrison and appreciate his bend on characters and established mythos. I would've liked it if he had kept the pedal to the medal throughout the story to the end.

While the art Is nice to look at it fails to accomplish the basics of storytelling - you cannot follow the story through the disjointed art layout. But the real weakness is the story - for a re-imagining of Wonder Woman's origins it lacks any imagination. And beyond the boring story are just inane story choices. Etta Candy is back as WW's friend but why? Why is WW hanging with a sassy sorority girl? Why is WW's mom such a hypocrite? Why should we care about these characters or the story? In the end, I didn't.

Morrison respectfully incorporates many of the classic (1940s) Wonder Woman tropes, while tweaking the story in hopes of producing a more coherent origin for the oft-revamped character. The art is careful and dazzling, with swirling layouts similar to the work of J.H. Williams III. Not for kids, though.

Morrison kind of makes the Amazons man-hating straw feminists. Not a huge fan.
