"War. For humankind, it is the oldest and deadliest enemy there is. And for Diana of Themyscira, the same is true...almost. Because to the Amazon Princess, war is not just an impersonal force of destruction. War is a god-a god named Ares. And Ares is back. Resurrected after years of oblivion, this young god has emerged once more to shake the world to its very foundations. But Ares is still impressionable, still able to be molded into something less cruel and more just...if he has the right mentor. He has chosen Wonder Woman. And now Wonder Woman must make a choice of her own. Can Diana reform Ares wicked ways? Or will she and everyone she cares about learn the hard way that there's no such thing as a just war?"-- Provided by publisher.
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 March #1
After a cosmic paradox apparently shunted their world into nothingness, Greek gods and Amazons have become refugees on Earth. Faced with his own existential truth, the war god Ares seeks to redefine himself by inciting the titular just war, only to get straightened out both physically and philosophically by the ever-empathic Wonder Woman. More compelling still is the second arc contained herein: a media entrepreneur with the goddess of vengeance under her thumb looks to settle a grudge against "the unregulated, extrajudicial killing machines that call themselves costumed heroes." The tag-team art is handsome throughout, but it also hits its high mark in the second arc, with Merino's precision lines and classically heroic figures highlighted by expressive faces that convey potent rage, ferocity, and fortitude. Powering it all is Wilson's penchant for constructing an exciting story built on a foundation of meaningful and penetrating questions that touch on the political as well as the emotional and delineating rich characters in simple, elegant moments.
