3.5 Woh and meh at the same time.

World: The art was solid, it was emotive and kinetic when needed. The colors were a bit flat but oh well. The world building on the ortherhand was pretty solid. I thought Fontana would have a longer run but oh well James Robinson is a good choice and he starts building the world towards magic and also for the greater DCU. I love it when big huge things that matter happen in small books, it allows for better storytelling and savoring these big events without the

Radically rewriting the past, dependent upon having read a completely separate mini-series, and filled out with a repetitive one-shot that doesn't even include WW and only rehashes the made-up crap they already relayed in the preceding volumes, this hits a trifecta of reasons not to bother reading.

In the wake of the Darkseid War, Wonder Woman learned that she was not an only child. Now, it’s time for her to finally meet her long lost brother, but Jason isn’t quite as happy to see her as she is to see him. And he’s not the only one returning to her life – Darkseid is back, reborn as a child in the wake of his battle with the Anti-Monitor. But what do he and his daughter Grail have to do with the rash of killings sweeping the country?

An OK Wonder Woman story. What I liked:

Darkseid is finally getting some love in the Rebirth era.

The art-while kind of cartoony-was good.

What didn't work for me as much:

Steve Trevor (Diana's lost puppy for all intents and purposes) calling WW "Angel" literally every other panel. Has he always done this? What a tool.

Jason's motivations made zero sense and he has the personality of a tree stump.

After the New 52 run and the beginning of the Rebirth run, I am a little wore out on WW origin/family sto

Is Wonder Woman so hard to right that even James Robinsom can't handle her? Or is editorial so strict that there's no longer time for stories to evolve naturally? In just 7 issues WW discovers her long long brother, finds him, bonds with him (view spoiler) all while barely appearing in her own comic.

Jason is a one-dimensional mook, despite all the pages devoted to his backstory and Steve Trevor doesn't respect Diana enough to call her by eith

Really good. I miss ruckas writing but this one was great anyway. Also maybe they could tone down wonder woman’s massive boobs a little. Don’t get me wrong, I love big boobs but they are literally blocking my view! I can’t see what’s going on in the frames! Haha. Anyway really cool story involving some of the Greek pantheon and darkseid! 4 stars.

A superficial story amounting to a series of uninspired, predictable fight scenes, flat characters, inane dialogue: this book is easily one of the dullest, most uninspired Wonder Woman installments I have read in ages. A pity!

3.5/5 –– at times it's great at others it's a bit dull. Overall this is a solid volume and I enjoyed it a lot. Wonder Woman has been one of my favourite rebirth titles thus far and this is a welcomed addition to the already fantastic series. When I heard the title 'Children of the Gods' I was immediately excited. I'm a sucker for greek myth and loved the Azzarello run from N52 and hoped this would be somewhat like that. Admittedly, in terms of N52, I'm a bit confused about some of the timeline t ...more

Jason--Diana's twin brother! I was getting ready for a predictable plot twist where Jason and Diana would meet, he'd be cool at first, and then some mix-up betrayal would turn him bad. They didn't do that...exactly. I'll not spoil what they did do, but at first I was surprised (not pleased, but surprised) by what they did with Jason's introduction. His backstory/flashback pages I liked. It's always cool to see Heracles interpreted in comics. Tad confusing to keep his history with Wonder Woman st ...more

Basic plot: Darkseid is murdering the children of Zeus to regain power and Diana finds out that she has a twin brother in danger.

I don't know how I feel about Diana having a hidden brother just yet. He doesn't have much character development, yet, so it's hard to say what he will be like as a character. I definitely do not want to see him starting to dominate rhe storyline. That would suck. The return of Darkseid makes things interesting. That is obviously going to bear fruit later. The art in t

Wonder Woman was starting to drag to me but when her brother was added to the fold things started to get more and more interesting. Having a brother who is inexperienced and is just all around a screw up adds some extra drama to Diana's life and gives her something else to worry about other than constantly saving the world and always being a badass. And then now has to fight Darkseid [the farmer's nemisis] AGAIN and now his bratty daughter is here too? What a nightmare.

Este volumen solo tiene una línea argumental y aunque la premisa no es del todo original, entretiene bastante. El guión es sólido y construye unos personajes de una forma bastante correcta. Steve Trevor me parece un poco mal guionizado, pero es cuestión de percepción. Lo que más me ha distraído es que haya cuatro dibujantes (tres números están dibujados por Carlo Pagulayan, dos por Sergio Davila y otros dos por Emanuela Lupacchino), aunque el arte ha estado bien en todos los números.

I didn't mind this story as much as I thought I would, but I was wishing for more depth. 3.5 stars.

Eh, not bad, but not as good as previous ones. If I wanted to read about a bunch of male superheros, I'd pick up the Superman comics. Wonder Woman was barely in this at all.
