Wonder Woman’s world is shattered when a secret her mother, Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, kept all her life is revealed: Diana is not clay brought to life, but is in fact the child of Zeus!

In this reimagining of Diana’s history, superheroics and mythology seamlessly blend as Brian Azzarello (JOKER, 100 BULLETS) creates a new direction for one of the world’s best-known heroes. With stunning art by Cliff Chiang and Tony Akins, Wonder Woman has never looked better.

Nuanced and bold, this new beginning of the iconic character is considered one of the greatest stories in the history of the Amazon Warrior. WONDER WOMAN VOLUME 1: BLOOD—the critically acclaimed and best-selling series—collects issues #1-6 from the New 52 era.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This is clear storytelling at its best….It’s an intriguing concept and easy to grasp. The reader doesn’t need to know that much about Wonder Woman because she is, well, Wonder Woman.” – The New York Times

“Azzarello is...rebuilding the mythology of Wonder Woman.” – Maxim

“Azzarello is crafting a highly-intelligent, and surprisingly gory, affair that's drenched in Greek mythology and godly mischief. And if that's not enough, artist Cliff Chiang simply kills it on every panel he touches. Put your presumptions aside because this is actually a Wonder Woman book worth reading.” – Complex Magazine

 “This series will hopefully elevate Diana back into the limelight with Superman and Batman where she belongs.” – Christian Science Monitor

“Beautifully illustrated and brings a fresh, fascinating and fun take to the Amazon Princess and her world.” – IGN

“It’s a different direction for Wonder Woman, but one still steeped in mythology...great things from Azzarello and Chiang.” – The Onion A.V. Club

“Enthralling.” - UGO

 “This book is weird and worth your while.” – io9

“It’s the kind of writing that’s made Azzarello such a sought after comic book author.” – CraveOnline

“Brian Azzarello is going for a much more horror-oriented book than previous incarnations, and that works well with Cliff Chiang’s art. In fact, they’re probably one of the best paired teams for the New 52 so far.” – Comic Book Resources

“Page after page, Azzarello just unfurls more and more smart ideas in what is probably the best hope for the great Wonder Woman story we’ve all been hoping for. Unsurprisingly, Cliff Chiang delivers some phenomenal visuals, presenting us with a heroine who reads as dynamic, elegant, powerful, and even godly. People, I think they’ve figured it out.” – iFanboy
