Wonder Woman Vol. 1 Blood (The New 52) — is a bold reimagining. Greek gods with odd, new looks (Hades has a candle for a head), scenes out of a horror movie (centaurs sprout from decapitated horses), and lots of butt kicking by one of the most iconic heroines. Brian Azzarrello has taken this comic in a new direction, and it's never been more exciting. If you love Greek mythology then check it out.
