Praise For Wonder Woman Vol. 1: Blood (The New 52)

“This is clear storytelling at its best….It’s an intriguing concept and easy to grasp. The reader doesn’t need to know that much about Wonder Woman because she is, well, Wonder Woman.” —The New York Times

“Azzarello is...rebuilding the mythology of Wonder Woman.” —Maxim 

“Azzarello is crafting a highly-intelligent, and surprisingly gory, affair that's drenched in Greek mythology and godly mischief. And if that's not enough, artist Cliff Chiang simply kills it on every panel he touches. Put your presumptions aside because this is actually a Wonder Woman book worth reading.” —Complex Magazine 

“Beautifully illustrated and brings a fresh, fascinating and fun take to the Amazon Princess and her world.” —IGN 

“It’s a different direction for Wonder Woman, but one still steeped in mythology...great things from Azzarello and Chiang.” —A.V. Club

 “This book is weird and worth your while.” —io9

“It’s the kind of writing that’s made Azzarello such a sought after comic book author.” —Crave Online 

“Brian Azzarello is going for a much more horror-oriented book than previous incarnations, and that works well with Cliff Chiang’s art. In fact, they’re probably one of the best paired teams for the New 52 so far.” —Comic Book Resources
