My Thoughts:

This trade was okay, just okay. I think the main problem with this trade was that my expectations were really high, and I was severely disappointed.

It started out really strong and I was looking forward to it. Wonder Woman thinks that someone is messing with her head, her memories and to top it all off she can’t go home. It was after the first issue that things kind of go downhill.

Now, don’t get me wrong the storyline as a whole is pretty interesting and definitely not what I was expecting (in a good way), but it just wasn’t what I was expecting. Though I have to admit, the Cheetah storyline was intriguing and kept me interested I wanted to know more. Actually that plot point was the highlight of the trade.

The whole trade was pretty fast paced, and action packed which was great. Honestly that fight scenes where some of my favorite parts. The artwork and colors were gorgeous, I loved Diana’s design in this and the jungle was beautiful!

Now, here’s the plot point I didn’t like: Steve Trevor. Actually, I’m indifferent about this plot point, I don’t hate it but I don’t love it either. When I talk about Steve Trevor, I’m talking about him as a soldier, because I liked him and his team in that instance. What I’m on the fence about is the romance. Toward the end of the trade it got real sweet and I wasn’t feeling it. Maybe, I’m just bitter because I loved Diana and Clark together and she totally disregarded the whole entire relationship. Overall, I’m not impressed with the Steve/Diana relationship but that might change, who knows?

All in all, the trade wasn’t bad, it just didn’t met my high expectations. I will continue on with run, hopefully it gets better or my expectations get lower.
