Wonder Woman #8

Another crunch of a day, so, alas, another quick review.

Wonder Woman continues to be an interesting cross between horror and mythology. Lots of room for both in this issue as Diana takes a trip to Hell to try to rescue her friend Zola, who was kidnapped by Hades.

Writer Brian Azzarello was created a dark journey that depicts a truly unusual take on the afterlife - and you might be surprised by the forms Hell takes.

The excellent art is by Cliff Chiang, and as always it's outstanding, with dark, imaginative places, brutal battles and great characters. Hey, if that outstanding cover doesn't lure you in, I don't know what will.

Definitely not for kids, but loaded with surprises, unsettling images and an unusual tale. Recommended!

Grade: A-
