Wonder Woman: Warbringer: The Graphic Novel by Leigh Bardugo, Louise Simonson


I read this book for my "Graphic Novel with a Superhero" week in class. I will readily admit that superheroes are not my thing.....BUT Wonder Woman is a badass. And I love Leigh Bardugo. So I was intrigued to see how a graphic novel adaptation of Warbringer would translate.

I was impressed with the story. No character was as it seemed. Honestly, Warbringer would have made a far more interesting movie than WW1984 in my opinion. The topic of what is truly good and what is truly evil is the age old question and one that this book doesn't answer. Rather, it encourages the reader to ask more questions.

The art itself is well done. The sequences flow seamlessly and the color palate speaks to an other worldly element. I rather appreciated that colors tended to be more muted as opposed to 4K in your face color.

So why a three? Well, I just don't like superhero stories. They are on my take it or leave it scale. However, I recognize there are MANY more out there. At least I found one with my favorite superhero! (And face it, it's really Gal Gadot who I like)
