    I didn't like this as much as the original novel. Translating prose to comics is difficult and I think that's what happened here. Trying to include all the narration in the prose version made for some boring passages in the GN. The art was OK, but I didn't like the color palette at all. It was very dark and muted almost as if the whole story took place at dusk. I know this DC Ink line of books has made sparse use of colors in a good way but it ju...

    This one had a special place in my heart, especially since it includes Wonder Woman, but mainly because I loved Leigh Bardugo's novel version of this story. I really couldn't get enough of that story and was saddened when it came to an end. So, of course, when I saw this go up, I knew I wanted a chance at reviewing it. Even though this wasn't exactly as the novel, or as detailed, it had much of what I was looking and hoping for. Especially, when ...

    I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Review can also be found on *Milky Way of Books*The adaptation of Leigh's book gave me an even more amazing Wonder Woman vibe. The story is fairly done and the art is quite well. Diana has always been an amazing character and seeing her in her teens as a warrior was also very exciting. If you have read the book you'll fairly enjoy the graphic novel adaptation too.

    This is a good graphic novel adaptation of the YA novel, but the story is not communicated as well in this medium. If you want to get the full story and also love the graphic novel medium, I would recommend reading the original novel first. Thank you to DC Comics and NetGalley for providing a digital ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Thank you to DC Comics for providing me with an e-ARC of Wonder Woman: Warbringer in exchange for an honest review.I have a confession to make — Wonder Woman is a character that I don’t care much about. Hear me out, I love who she is & what she does; I love the Amazons & the concept of an island where only women live. I love everything about Wonder Woman.However, I don’t think I’ve found the right Wonder Woman series to consume. What it b...

    Warbringer is a faithful adaptation of the original story. Having read the source material, I am confident this is one of the best adaptations I’ve read. The plot follows the story, with the art adding to the battle scenes. Fans who find one medium or the other won’t miss anything by choosing one over the other. I actually enjoyed the graphic novel even more than the book!

    You know when you read a graphic novel based on a book and leaves out all the relevant information from the book that is critical to the story but they decided it wasn’t important enough to have it in the graphic novel? Yeah well, that was the case with Warbringer!What I love about how this story the most, is that it isn’t for Hollywood, it isn’t Diana meeting a guy and her world changes and she must do everything she can for him and blahhh...

    Diana longs to fit in with the other Amazons, all of whom have earned their places in Themyscira, but no matter how hard she tries she will always be the girl of clay her mother shaped. Until a mysterious girl washes up on the shores of her home, and it is up to Diana to save her people and everything she holds dear.This has to be one of my favourite DC comics yet! With Leigh Bardugo's wit, stunning artwork and all the badassery of Wonderwoman, w...

    3/5 stars! ARC provided by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I have tried to read the original novel of this a few times and can just never get into, but I'm just so interested in Diana and wanted to get a new story by Leigh Bardugo. So, when I was approved for this I was really happy. The artwork in this graphic novel is amazing. I loved the characters and the plot was really cool with the gods and lore behind it all. ...

    I absolutely loved this one. It correlated closely to the DC Icons book that it was based from. Diana has always been a super strong female character, so adding her into this graphic novel will definitely be great for future generations. Diana can set a role model in many forms but being able to have the same story translate this story from words to visuals is revolutionary at spreading literacy to younger readers. The art was beautiful and the s...

    I was provided with an arc of this via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Well its safe to say I loved this as much as I loved the book. I enjoyed the art and I felt like the pace of the graphic novel was well done and matched the pace of the book almost exactly. The graphic novel of Wonder Woman : Warbringer goes along perfectly with the graphic novel for Batman : Nightwaker and I look forward to owning them together.

    Thanks go to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. When I saw Wonder Woman AND Leigh Bardugo combined in one book, I knew it was going to be something special, and Wonder Woman: Warbringer did not disappoint. As much as I loved the story, perhaps my favorite aspect of the book is the way that the artist combined a mostly cool color palette of blues and grays with jud...

    I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest and voluntary review. I was in no way compensated for this review.The DC Comics team has brought to life yet another DC Icons novel! This time it's Leigh Barudgo's Wonder Woman: Warbinger. Louise Simonson was the adapter and the gorgeous illustrations were created by Kit Seaton! I have to say that I really enjoyed this color scheme! It's very faint colors that make Wonder Woman who ...

    "You were my first nothing. I am immortal, and you are a footnote. I will erase you from my history, and you will vanish, unremembered by this world."Considering I had no desire to read the actual book despite my love for Leigh Bardugo, this was the perfect medium to read the book in; it's Wonder Woman, after all. I will admit, however, that I went into this hoping that they were gonna let Diana be gay with the cute black girl, Alia, on the cover...

    I've always been curious of Leigh Bardugo writing Wonder Woman and when I saw the opportunity to check the Graphic Novel, I had to get it!And oh I'm so glad I did! This story was very good, from an insecure Diana with the Amazons to the great Diana we've all come to love after being battle-tested. Loved it!!

    This was a good adaptation of the prose novel, but it wasn't quite as cohesive of a story due to the truncated plot.Check out my full review at Forever Young Adult.

    I love Wonder Woman so seeing this story told with the new graphics is wonderful. I enjoyed this story more the second round which could have to do with the brilliant illustrations. I'm really glad this series is getting an illustrated version along with the written novels. I love both styles but most people come from the comic books or animated movies and being able to see them is often better. We don't often get to see Diana as a teenager she's...

    Wonder Woman: Warbringer the graphic novel is filled with beautiful pictures and tells the story of Diana as she saves the life of a young girl, leaves her life-long home, and gets caught up in trying to prevent a war while saving the life of her friend again because she is the warbringer, descended from Helen whose power from the gods caused the battle of troy. The novelization was written by Leigh Bardugo, and it was well adapted for the graphi...

    I originally went through this story as an audiobook about 2 years ago and at the time I was a bit underwhelmed. I have a feeling that some of that was due to the production quality of the audiobook. It wasn't terrible but was no Star Wars production. Now that I've consumed this story again as a graphic novel, I think I understand what's going on in the story better... And it turns out that maybe it wasn't just the medium that turned me a bit off...

    I received a copy of Wonder Woman: Warbringer through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. Odds are pretty good that you’ve heard of Leigh Bardugo’s novel, Wonder Woman: Warbringer. Set in the DC universe, it followed Princess Diana in her early years. It’s part of a series that DC has been working on lately, and it’s been getting a lot of ink. This is not that novel. But it’s close. This is the graphic novel adaptation ...

    @kidlitexchange #partnerThank you to @dczoombooks for sharing an advance copy of Wonder Woman: Warbringer (the Graphic Novel) with the #kidlitexchange network. This book will be released January 7, 2019. All opinions are my own. One day, she will be one of the greatest heroes, Wonder Woman, but for now she is a daughter of Earth and princess of the Amazons. Diana feels that she has something to prove to her Amazon sisters as she is not truly one ...

    There's a certain point when reading Elseworlds or alternate universe stories of popular characters that reach when veers away for the character's essential traits or character and into more a vehicle for the author's tropes or stories. I also think of Kelly Sue DeConnick's saying that people like a story or character because it resonates something within them.I read the DC Ink Breaking Glass, which diverges from the usual Harley Quinn story and ...
