  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 January #1
    In this graphic adaptation of Bardugo's Wonder Woman: Warbringer (2017), a pre-superhero Diana is waylaid during a race with her fellow Amazons, thanks to a ship exploding near her island and her compulsion to rescue Alia. Unbeknownst to her, Alia is a Warbringer, a descendant of Helen who brings about conflict wherever she goes. Relying on advice from an oracle, Diana leaves Themyscira to bring Alia to a spring, which might purge her of her curse and end the threat forever. Unlike many typical superhero comics, Simonson's adaptation is text-heavy but remains entirely faithful to the original story. As a lifelong inhabitant of Themyscira, Diana gains insight into the racial and gender issues prevalent in human society, particularly among Alia's diverse group of friends and family in New York. The illustrations are detailed, and colored mostly in shades of blue with the occasional pop of red. Teens will likely appreciate seeing such an iconic character struggle with insecurity. With lots of Greek mythology peppered throughout the book, this should have wide appeal among a broad range of readers. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
