Wonder Woman, Volume 1: The Lies by Greg Rucka
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Closer to a 3.5.
I've been reading Wonder Woman for at least a decade now, and the common theme seems to be "what have they done with her?" I didn't hate what I read from the New 52 run, but I also know that non-Rucka efforts have been lacking.
So how's Rebirth? Well, it's an interesting way to pull everything together from the previous retcons and reboots, but my biggest complaint so far is how little actually happens here. Diana lacks any real forward motion, the motivations are slow to come about, and the whole thing just feels like some of the more middling older efforts.
I trust Rucka enough to not screw it up, so to speak, but my optimism, combined with the current comics culture and the overall reduction in quality of the major comics publishers leaves me a little worried.
