In anticipation of the new Wonder Woman movie being released, I re-read “Wonder Woman Vol. 1: Blood (The New 52)”. As with the first time, this story did not disappoint. The action captured in the artwork of Cliff Chiang kept me enthralled throughout the story. This is a new and contemporary take on Wonder Woman, that is a real page turner!
It’s Neil Gaiman and the DC Universe! What else could I ask for? Of course this book is fantastic! In anticipation of seeing Neil Gaiman live at the end of the month, I blazed through this comic collection all at once with excitement.
It is now the holidays, and I finally have a chance to catch my breath. Prior to the next 24 hours of holiday festivities gearing up, I spent part of my morning reading leisurely.

This morning, I was able to zip through this colorful version of the story in a short and enjoyable 30 minutes.
