The third and final chapter of the critically lauded and Eisner-nominated secret history of the Amazons crescendos with the inevitable-an all-out war against the gods. When Zeus discovers the goddesses defied him by creating the Amazons, seemingly nothing can stop his fervor to eliminate their warriors… not even Hera herself. But the Amazons’ numbers have grown, and there is a distinctly and unpredictably human element among their ranks now in Hippolyta and the tribe she leads. Their very fight for existence will alter the course of history itself and bring about one of the greatest protectors the world has ever known!
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: A brilliantly emotional, thrilling and inspiring conclusion from DeConnick. The story is riveting and has all the hallmarks of great literature from the characterizations to the drama. I love the progression of the story and how all of its elements work brilliantly with each other to craft an amazing read. The Art: Scott delivers some beautifully detailed art on every page of this issue. The art is visually divine and draws you in with each page and panel.

Geek DadIn many ways, the ending of this story is preordained, but it’s given a unique twist that changes the tone of this creation—and one that is very called for given the recent changes to Wonder Woman’s origin in the last decade. The three issues of this series ultimately feel very separate, and maybe this was intentional given the different art teams, but I am fascinated to see how this beautiful series reads as a completed whole.
ComicBook.comNicolas Scott and Annette Kwok join the title and provide the necessary goods that mold this story into something of epic proportions. Though the script lurches forward a bit all too slowly, the payoff is entirely worth it.
Comics Nexus by Inside PulseWhat a gorgeous issue first of all. Nicola Scott leads an amazing art team. Kelly Sue DeConnick weaves a fascinating tale featuring the Amazons that elaborate on their complex role in the world. Beauties and beasts rolled in one considering what they did to Heracles. Courageous to stand-up to their gods. Culminating in the birth of Queen Hippolyta’s daughter’s birth. Very cool to compare its key moments to the others I have chronicled here. An entertaining issue.
