Review
  • In this long, well-plotted story arc (begun in Eyes of the Gorgon), Wonder Woman, aka Diana, is faced with challenges on every level. The Amazon island Themyscira, no longer floating above the ocean, now rests off the coast of the Carolinas, which brings up all sorts of U.S. security issues that Diana, as official Amazonian ambassador, must deal with. Unknown to her, the deadly gorgon Medousa and her evil sisters have been released and want revenge against the goddess Athena and her champion, Wonder Woman. At the same time, Athena plots a bloodless coup against Zeus for the rule of Mount Olympus. Medousa challenges Diana to a fight to the death, and in order to beat the gorgon's deadly gaze, Diana blinds herself. While Wonder Woman triumphs, the cost--the life of her friends' young son--is almost too much for her to bear. Then, Athena herself calls upon the still-blind Wonder Woman to help her cement her power on Olympus. Rucka serves up an exhilarating adventure while still allowing us to see the classic superheroine's softer side. His Wonder Woman still packs a punch but also comes across as very human. A traditional comic-book style reigns in the artwork. -- Tina Coleman (Reviewed 03-15-2006) (Booklist, vol 102, number 14, p42)
  • Gr 7 Up –The Cheetah is just one of the many obstacles that a now-blind Wonder Woman must face before descending into the depths of Hades to rescue Hermes. In the first part, which is entertaining but standard superhero fare, she teams up with the Flash to battle the evil and power-hungry villains Cheetah and Zoom. The quality of the storytelling and artwork improve dramatically in the second part. Here Rucka’s pacing and the art mesh to create a well-plotted story that provides insight into the psychology of Wonder Woman’s heroism and her role as ambassador for the Amazons. At the request of Athena, Wonder Woman travels to the underworld accompanied by a Minotaur and her protégée, Wonder Girl. Readers soon learn that Princess Diana and company are merely pawns in Athena’s grand scheme to usurp Hades and gain dominion over Mt. Olympus. The culminating events bring closure to a story that is both satisfying and heartfelt. A good choice for middle and high school collections, this book contains minor elements of violence.–Philip Charles Crawford, Essex High School, Essex Junction, VT --Philip Charles Crawford (Reviewed July 1, 2006) (School Library Journal, vol 52, issue 7, p128)
