Diana is surprised Zola and Hera left the London apartment. Really, Diana? You really thought leaving those two women together alone (who wanted to kill each other not so long ago) was a wise idea?
Orion has an Astro-Harness that can read DNA and locate anyone. He can boomtube into bars and, of course, none of these Gods care about the thoughts of these normal human Londoners around them. Maybe it's normal for London folk to see Wonder Woman in bars because they sure don't seem to react. Wonder Woman and her crew do seem to love bars, don't they? Oh, the annoying Strife appears as well.
They see War and there is a near scuffle. War will take Diana to Olympus to get the baby. Orion slaps Diana's ass. And what does the Amazon do? Nothing. Just show some cliched, girlish rage...What the...? That was my reaction to YOU, Diana. Not the boor's slap. You let him get away with that? Oh and Zola just stood by while he did it too. As a woman, I found this whole scene as dumb as it was odd.
First Born is going after another Uncle.
Diana and War go after Hermes and Demeter for the baby.
And here ends my desire to continue with this story. I'll take it up in trade if the other arcs are worth buying. It is way too decompressed. Azzarello confirms more New Gods and no traditional supporting cast or rogues, no Superman or JL...and frankly for a reboot title...for me...this is not Wonder Woman. This is Diana, newly discovered daughter of Zeus, shoe horned into a revamp of the Gods and their politics. I want to read a hero whose newly discovered birth does not drive her adventures. I want some fun for Diana and from her ( it's all doom and death and angst) and ass slapping by a chauvinist pig is not my idea of fun. I love her mythical aspects but sorry, it really does not rock my boat that much that the title needs to be dominated by it alone. I don't want to read for three years a characterless London as her base, with nothing to tether us to it or make us care (think Metropolis or Gotham and why we care for those cities...it is the people or cast, right?) Too many unresolved, hanging threads 17 issues later; and some as vague as her powers. I won't even touch on the bomb dropped in #7 about the Amazons because they simply not around for us to ask why. And yes, as a biased sm/ww fan.I don't appreciate not having even a reference to the romance but in waltzes New God jerk, Orion, who has no place in this mythos, but he gets pages of panel time. In fact, from guest star , he might be a co-star now. Thank heavens for other books that allow us to see Diana has a life outside of God chasing.
