On the trail of the god who betrayed her, Diana crosses the path of the deadly SIRACCA!

Verdict - 3.3

- I've always been interested in different Mythologies, Greek, Roman, Norse, etc so I'm trying to read Wonder Woman along with Thor and Journey, but for some reason I can't always follow what's going on. I said I was interested, not that I have read the Myths. With this issue the cover and the art of the book are OK, but not something I really like. The inking in this issue seemed a little chunky to me and that could be the reason I'm not as much a fan of the art. It also appeared at times like two different artists were drawing the book due to either the artist or the inking. The overall flow of the book was easy to follow, but the story seemed a little confusing at first. We open with the First Born in Antarctica discussing how he has been digging out for thousands of years. We get told the origin story by a member of the research team and how Zeus had him sent to be killed, but was saved because the witches saw a vision of him as the ruler of the Gods. We find Wonder Woman on a quest to find her exiled siblings so she can find the baby Hermes stole. The problem I find with the story-line so far is we have 2 different things happening, Ares ruling and fearing that one of Zeus's kids will take the throne, and Diana trying to find Zeus's latest child. Because of the revelation about the First Born, this new child seems like a mute point, and makes the first 13 issues about him meaningless. I'm going to hold on for awhile to see where this is going, maybe it will all tie together in the end.
