Comments Wonder Woman: The True Amazon

  • Jan Philipzig

    The Traumatization of Wonder WomanWith its focus on narration rather than dialogue and its fully painted, lush yet neatly structured artwork, Jill Thompson’s Wonder Woman: The True does not exactly feel like your typical contemporary comic book. In fact, it hardly feels like a comic book at all, more like an illustrated old-school storybook. It’s an effect that works well in the context, as it somewhat removes Wonder Woman from the other heroes of the DC Universe, highlighting the ’s anci [...]

  • Sam Quixote

    Jill Thompson’s Wonder Woman: The True is a retelling of Diana’s classic origin with the slight difference that teenage Diana is a brat. She’s the princess so she does what she wants, bitch! And then she learns the dire consequences of her irresponsibility, grows up and is set on the path towards the hero she will become. It’s not a bad story but I didn’t love it. It’s written competently by Thompson and she gives Diana a grounded reason to be more caring and mindful of her actions [...]

    Wonder Woman has always had the reputation of being one of the most stable and well-adjusted of the comic book heroes, as well as having on of the kindest hearts. What I liked about this most recent telling of her origin tale is the new take that Jill Thompson considers on how she became that way. She portrays Diana as growing up as a spoiled brat and ultimately learning through her mistakes how to be the person we know her to be today. I've seen more than a few reviews that seem to be angry at [...]

  • David Schaafsma

    Wonder Woman: The True is a beautifully painted one volume storybook-style origin story for the Princess Diana, an Eisner-Award nominee I suspect mainly for the art, which is impressive. The story is basically Wonder Woman as Mean Girl, one who Does a Bad Bad Thing which she (for some reason) needed to go through to make a commitment to Peace and Justice.Thompson works from the vibe of Greek myth to elevate Wonder Woman to a God-like status. But first she has to grow up. She gains in skills an [...]

    At last, a 'Wonder Woman' graphic novel rated five stars by me, happy and utterly satisfied.Even with my still-partial reading experience of the seventy-five years of 'Wonder Woman' comics, I can say, in my humble opinion, that 'Wonder Woman: The True ' is the best re-imagining of the character and her origin.I can finally get the taste of Brian Azzarello's trite, regressive, misogynistic New 52 retcon of the famous superheroine's unique origin (where she's just another of Zeus's bastard childre [...]

  • Sesana

    A re-imagining of Diana's origin that only changes one thing, by making her spoiled, selfish, and needing to grow and seek redemption. Beautifully illustrated, with a story that makes sense (Diana is, after all, the cherished only child of hundreds) and grows into something quite good by the end.

  • Ian

    I've been a fan of Wonder Woman ever since the 1970s TV seriesbut sadly the character has been mistreated. In the mid-1990s I can remember reading in the Hollywood Reporter that a Wonder Woman movie was in pre-production. It must have been 2002 or 2003 that I heard the project had been canned because "nobody wanted to watch a female super hero". Then a couple of years later the movie was back on before being once again canned. Then there was a very good animated movie, and finally the feature le [...]

    Starting this review off with a disclaimer, I am not a comic buff by any stretch of the imagination. I don't have characters that I know the entire back story of, or know every single story arc they are in. I enjoy comics, I like the perdy pictures and while I don't follow the entire storyline of particular characters, I do have some personal favorites and if I see them in something, I will pick it up.That being said, if I pick up something with a fav in it and they aren't portrayed in a way I a [...]

  • Kenny

    Arguably the best origin WW story ever.Jill's da man!

  • Shadowdenizen

    I love Jill Thompson; have for quite some time.But this failed to capture the essence of Diana/ Wonder Woman peoperly for me.3.5 stars.

  • TheSkepticalReader

    Probably more of a 4-star read but after having to sit through Joss Whedon’s Wonder Woman in the ‘Justice League’ film, I just really needed this. I needed to reconnect and remember why I love WW so much. It was perfection for me.The art probably ranks as some of the best ever in any DC comic books.

  • Jess

    oh my god, Jill Thompson, why?This is 120-odd pages of utterly gorgeous, magical, expressive watercolour art, wasted on a deeply unpleasant perversion of Wonder Woman's origins. Thompson takes the classic elements of Diana's heroic origin - the contest, the masked girl who emerges as victor, the tiara, the costume, the bracelets and lasso, the journey forth into Man's World - and transform them into sources of shame and disgust, symbols of Diana's revolting self-absorption and failure. It's not [...]

  • Wiccy

    While I really love the art I just couldn't feel the same way about the story. I feel that it diminishes Diana and completely changes who she is by making her mission out in the wider world not because the drive is in her nature that she truly wants to help, but because she MUST do it, because she is left no other choice after she actions and poor decisions. That's just not Diana, or Wonder Woman, to me and it left me disappointed.

  • Tina

    I am embarrassed to admit that I never knew much about Princess Diana's birth or training. The finesse and brilliance presented in Jill Thompson's version enthralled me. Thanks to the art and dialogue, my interest in Wonder Woman was reinforced.

  • Mark Schlatter

    [Quick note: My low rating of this book is much more indicative of Thompson's vision of Wonder Woman than the quality inherent in the work.]We are apparently in a Golden Age of Wonder Woman origin reboot stories. Besides Grant Morrison's Wonder Woman: Earth One, Vol. 2 and Greg Rucka's "Wonder Woman: Year One" story in the current Rebirth issues, we have a movie coming out soon. So I was interested to see Jill Thompson's take. I have loved her work in the past, gobbling up all the Scary Godmothe [...]

  • CleverBaggins

    It's entirely possible this story just isn't for me. That this Wonder Woman just isn't my Wonder Woman and that's the problem. I don't think it is though.It's supposed to be a new Wonder Woman origin story. The art isn't my favorite although everyone else is raving, but it's not horrible. The idea with this one is the traditional story, Wonder Woman's mother wishing for a child, how the 's cam to live on their own island without men, etc. Only this time Wonder Woman is a spoiled child who grows [...]

  • Miranda

    I dunno, y'all. This story rubbed me entirely the wrong way in a lot of places. It feels a little like a slap in the face of the original purpose behind her character and world. Instead of an island of women raising one girl to be a compassionate, wise warrior who only draws her sword when talking doesn't work, they spoil her and make her conceited and mean. Instead of the Goddesses willingly creating Diana from sand, it's more like a happy accident that happens after Poseidon quiets the seas so [...]

  • Carla Estruch

    Me ha gustado muchísimo esta leyenda. Bonita forma de comenzar el año. =)

  • Carol Tilley

    The art is pretty in moments but this is not my Wonder Woman.

  • Michelle

    This is a bit of an Elsewhere origin story for Wonder Woman. There is no Steve Trevor and most of the story is on Themyscira. There is no external conflict between "man's world" and Wonder Woman's ideals. I love the art. Jill Thompson has gorgeous watercolors. Every character has a distinct look, and the care of the backgrounds and the clothes are a real joy to drink in. The story focuses on why and how the s left to their own island, Diana's creation, her upbringing, and how she became Wonder W [...]

  • Ron

    Jill Thompson in "The True " has told a backstory to Wonder Woman that provides motivation for her future actions. Princess Diana is the only child of Queen Hippolyta of the s. She grows up spoiled, self-centered, and ill-tempered. She makes some horrible choices that results in deaths and injuries for the s. By the end of the tale, Diana is sent into exile until she has made up for the ills she has caused. A nice twist on the standard Wonder Woman backstory!

  • Grace Peterson

    I love the artwork and the way this story was told. So many times when I read a re-telling of the Wonder Woman story I feel that her character is over-sexualized and fetishized. That wasn't the case however with Thompson's retelling as she did a great job focusing on the character and relationship development making Wonder Woman and her companions more complex and human. I hope we get to see more Wonder Woman stories from Jill Thompson.

  • Elisabeth

    The art is gorgeous and the story is a well-told variant on the original. I understand it's unpopular among some fans but I think it's a perfectly valid origin for the character. Also did I mention the art is gorgeous?

  • Claudia ✨

    My rating: 3.5 starsWhat a better way to get pumped for the new Wonder Woman movie I'm watching this week than to read a comic about her? This comic was perfect for just that, so fastpaced and fresh after the two hellishly boring books I just finished (I am looking at you The Magicians' Guild and Truthwitch).This book was very easy to follow with it's beautiful art, stunning colours and touching story. It was a bit simple at times, but still carried across a powerful message well. I felt like it [...]

  • Becca

    I'd happily tattoo the Gal Godot Wonder Woman film into my eyeballs and let it play on repeat eternally in my skull. But barring that, I'm happy to spend more time with Wonder Woman in any format. But I may be spoiled by the film: she's strong but idealistic. She has integrity and compassion. In short, she's a GOOD person-- no, even better and more rare in movies--she's a good woman. So since her goodness was so potent for me in the film, this no. I didn't like this. Here's the spoiler: she's ro [...]

  • Simon Maracara

    Beautiful yet small book with a different take on Wonder Woman's myth. The art is gorgeous, almost every panel could be easily displayed as a painting in a gallery.The idea of depicting Diana as a selfish and spoiled young woman may seem odd given her popular story but it works great at humanizing a demigoddess. The queer elements of her legend are present here, being both explicit and subtle depending on who's reading. It may not be the best book for new readers interested in the upcoming film, [...]

  • Iris Nevers

    Wonder Woman is always revered and she's wonderful, but what if she wasn't that way? She grew up on an island of woman and was the only child -- of course she would be spoiled. This altered origin story makes Diana in control of her own destiny and the sole reason for leaving Paradise Island. It was a great change of pace. I loved Diana's motivation and how misguided it was. I absolutely loved the art and the plot but I had one problem with the story.*spoilers ahead*When Diana is crying over her [...]

  • Paula Datti Mariusso

    Eu nunca tinha lido uma história dela, só com ela. Essa é minha primeira história da Mulher-Maravilha (como fica feio isso em português!!, WonderWoman é muito melhor, pelo menos para o ouvido) e acho que fiz uma boa escolha. Essa história contada e desenhada pela brilhante quadrinista Jill Thompson, que tem a minha admiração irrestrista por fazer essas maravilhas num meio predominantemente masculino, é simples, inteligente, envolvente, emocionante e linda de se ver. Nenhum herói é pe [...]

  • Erin

    I love Jill Thompson and she does not disappoint with this entry. It always annoyed me how we never get a lot of stories about Diana's life on Themyscira before she becomes WW. And if we do, it's always the same story. Made of clay, Steve Trevor, blah blah blah. Thompson's story is all about Diana's childhood and how she becomes WW, but it completely flips the origin story on its head and makes it all the more believable, in my eyes anyway. I don't want to spoil anything but this is a must read [...]

  • Aj

    I didn't like this retelling, from the artwork to the story itself. It is just ugly. I have a hard time believing that any tribe would tolerate that type of behavior for very long. The ultimate design of her costume (and hair) I liked with the exception of the star spangled underweargh. I wonder if comic book artists will EVER move from that.
