Book Review: The Circle (Wonder Woman)

by Gail Simone, Terry Dodson, and Bernard Chang.

I’m not sure where in the timeline this belongs.

But I liked it:  The first part is a Greek tragedy, with the characters’ personalities so strong, so fully developed, so inevitable, that the end has its own dignity and grace.  The second part is funnier but less godlike; it’s hard to see that the two parts were even written by the same person (although drawn by two different sets of artists).

A quote from the writer, in the Introduction:  “When you need to stop an asteroid, you get Superman  When you need to solve a mystery, you call in Batman.  But when you need to end a war, you get Wonder Woman.”

Just so.
