Wonder Woman goes to hell! After playing Poseidon, Hades, and Hera against each other, Hades strikes back by kidnapping Zola and trapping her in the Underworld. It's up to Wonder Woman—with a little help from the God of Love and the God of Smiths—to break Zola out. But what is Hades' real game, and once you get into the land of the dead, how exactly do you get out?
Gods + Superheroics = Victory!
The feeling that you get when you're satisfied completely, it's ecstasy. That's exactly how you'll feel after reading this story.
The story is a direct continuation of Vol. 1, so it might confuse you initially but the story explains itself well once you dive in. The story, written by Brian Azzarello, is a great epic that swallows you in as well as a great explanation of who Wonder Woman is. She's a young but confident character that's meeting her extended for a first time (and what a time it is)! Everyone can relate to this, but when your extended family are gods... well some dirty secrets of the family may be dirtier than you think.
The artwork, expressed by Cliff Chang and Tony Akins, cannot be downplayed. Their portrayal of Wonder Woman is one of a strong heroine, one that actually looks like a warrior that she is and not just a model. Their visions of the greek pantheon are also inspired, imaginative and grand (here's looking at you Poseidon). The whole art team, the inkers and colorists help keep the tone and beauty even when they switch artists.
Wonder Woman Vol. 2 is a definite MUST buy! The story that Brian Azzarello, Cliff Chang and Tony Akins are creating is a beautiful tale of a person continuing to do their best despite the road bumps that life throws at them, As well as explains why Wonder Woman is so great (that... amazing... incredible final act... wow).
