    I enjoyed this version more that the novel, partly for the visuals and partly because as it was more condensed it did not seem as slow moving as the novel. Like the book I would have preferred more action, and the artwork is more suited to Batman then Wonder Woman, but it is still good. Personally I think the story would have been better without the people being taken over by the Greek deities. I did not understand the reason for it in the novel or here.

Personally I think the story would have been better without the people being taken over by the Greek deities. I did not understand the reason for it in the novel or here. The story is good more Wonder Girl then Wonder Woman, but as it is an origin and a younger (by immortal standards) Diana this make complete sense. I like how the characters inspire each other to be better. This is a good coming of age story. It definitely works better in a graphic novel format. Ok so it was not my favourite incarnation of Diana but it was the right character for the time of the story.

    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 just wasn't the same in this one.

The famed DC superhero has many names and she has been adapted and reincarnated many times. First appearing in 1941 before her first feature in 1942, there have been films, TV shows, and books. And now she is once again welcomed back to the comic book page in Louise Simonson’s adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer. The story follows Diana Prince, long before her tenure as the legendary Wonder Woman, as she risks exile from her homeland to save a mortal and becomes ensnared in an international plot to stop a world war. This is where the plot gets interesting. The world isn’t being threatened by the usual trigger-happy white men in suits, but by the very girl Diana saves. Alia Keralis is a Warbringer: a direct descendant of Helen of Troy and destined to cause chaos. Together, the two women must overcome their own insecurities and unleash the potential within themselves in order to prevent the world from falling into violence. The novel in which this adaptation is based on manages to inject a fresh new voice into the overcrowded universe of superhero origin stories, and Bardugo establishes her own version of Wonder Woman’s early beginnings with her usual punchy flair. In Simonson’s adaptation, the characters are placed front and centre with Kit Seaton’s illustrations. Seaton, who has also lent her artist prowess to another YA adaptation, Alexandra Bracken’s Brightly Woven, manages to breathe life into the DC Universe with her playful graphic design. The only drawback to Seaton’s art is that at times it fails to deliver impact due to the similar colour choices utilised throughout. The book is a colour wheel of blue and grey, and only occasionally does the novel brighten up with oranges and reds. Wonder Woman has always been a symbol of vibrancy and power, and at times, Seaton’s art disappoints and doesn’t manage to capture that historic essence. Overall, it is enjoyable to look at. Aside from the premise, the plot isn’t anything particularly new, but the magic comes from the main cast. Diana and Alia are joined by the latter’s best friend Nim, a boisterous go-getter with a no-nonsense attitude, and Theo, her brother’s sidekick and crush. Bardugo does character so well and always creates a familiar and realistic portrayal of group friendships. The dynamic between the foursome is both hilarious and uplifting. Wonder Woman returns to her roots in the Warbringer graphic novel with witty dialogue, high stakes and great friendships. Bardugo’s YA novel is honestly depicted through art and speech, and while it doesn’t quite capture the grandeur of a traditional Wonder Woman story, it lands on two feet when it comes to hilarity and character and gives a nod to the future in its conclusion. A worthy entry in the Wonder Woman universe.

    When I read Leigh Bardugo's Wonder Woman: Warbringer back in 2018, I had no idea I'd come to love this character so much. Wonder Woman was my introduction to the superhero genre. When I found out there was a graphic novel version I just had to read it. I think this is a good adaptation of the novel. All the important plot aspects were included, and I'm glad to say I still loved the characters as much as I did in the book, especially Alia and Nim. Seriously, everyone needs a best friend like Nim!

The story feautures a young Diana before she becomes known as Wonder Woman. We follow her growing up as an outsider on Themyscira, save Alia and travel to present day New York City with her to stop a war. It's so to say Diana's first big adventure. The plot was fast paced and easy to follow, the dialogue well written and it had me laughing a lot at some points. There are some greek gods and myths thrown into the story that I really enjoyed too and thought were quite fitting. I overall liked the art style, but the coloring was a bit dull. The primary colors in this are shades of blue with red thrown in at some points. I can see why this coloring and the high contrast were chosen, with the red representing rage, violence and war, but overall it was a bit too much blue. In the end, this graphic novel is certainly a nice addition to the book but also very understandable and enjoyable if you haven't read the book.

    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 it came to the graphics included in this version.

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 it came to the graphics included in this version. Plus, come on, it's Wonder Woman and it's Diana all at once, in all her youth that we rarely get to see in other graphic novels, or arc stories of her. That's what made this an even more interesting novel to pick up. And if you loved the DC Icons version of it, definitely give this a go. Yes, like mentioned above, go in it knowing it's not exactly the same, with much cut as this is a shorter and more to the point story, but it doesn't take away from who Diana is in here and all those surrounding her. Let's not forget Alia, making this a double threat. They both work great together to make this an even more interesting read. Another reason why I loved everything about this world created. My only concern, like many others, is that I needed more. Can't wait to see where this world goes and hopefully it brings us more of Diana and her ventures. ***I received this copy from DC Comics, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

As I’ve mentioned in one of my previous reviews (Batman: Nightwalker) I haven’t read the novels so I went into this not really knowing what to expect. Wonder Woman has always been one of my favorite members of the Justice League. I was so excited to read this and to dive back into the world of DC again. This was definitely a new twist on Wonder Woman. She’s depicted as a teenager in this graphic novel so we get to see a new side to her character. She’s obviously still fierce and daring but it’s definitely refreshing to see a few new differences. The story follows Diana trying to make a name for herself among her people, and her trying to prove herself. What I really enjoyed about this one is the way Diana was willing to risk herself for a girl in need of help even before she knew what she truly was. You can see how strong of a character she is just by this act, and it’s definitely not the only brave one she makes in this book. The Warbringer plot was interesting. The plot twists were also some that I didn’t see coming so that was a much appreciated aspect. I truly appreciated the work that Leigh Bardugo put into bringing this character to life. I’m really glad that she was the one to write Diana’s story. I’m also looking forward to reading the novel. I’d love to read this in more description and detail. I also loved the art with all my heart! DC Ink always brings the most amazing artists that really bring the stories to life. Overall, the book was very enjoyable just like the previous graphic novels by DC Ink. I’d definitely recommend these to everyone. Really amazing stories about beloved characters and the most beautiful artwork!

If you want to get the full story and also love the graphic novel medium, I would recommend reading the original novel first.

    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!

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 boils down to is the writer & who’s bringing her story to life. Therefore, I never found a true reason to consider myself a fan of the character. Which brings me to Wonder Woman: Warbringer. I have yet to read the actual novel that this graphic novel is based on (but! it’s on my soon-to-read TBR!), but I have to say that I truly did enjoy this tale. Perhaps it’s because it’s directed towards YA? & we all know I’m a sucker for YA reads. One of the things I loved about Wonder Woman: Warbringer is the friendships that are formed. Our Warbringer, Alia, gets shipwrecked on Themyscira & is rescued by Diana. This introduces us to a whole lot of fighting enemies & GIRL POWER. Alia is really the show-stealer in Wonder Woman: Warbringer, along with her best friend, Nim. I absolutely adored these two & even more so how they basically welcomed Diana with open arms. Honestly, by the end of it, I just wanted Diana to stay in New York & hang out with her new pals. Can I get a roommate AU or?????? Characters and relationships are absolutely phenomenal in Wonder Woman: Warbringer. As this is a graphic novel, there’s more to the story than just the words. Kit Seaton brings Diana and the gang alive with her artwork. A blue color scheme continues throughout the pages, which somehow just felt right. Everything just paired so extremely well together. In all, Wonder Woman: Warbringer is a pretty solid read, especially for fans of Wonder Woman. For fans of YA, I think this graphic novel is a perfect way to introduce yourself to the character and universe.

    Okay, so I had Bardugo's story on my NOOK (it was on sale!) and on audio CDs (it was a gift); yet, I just couldn't get any energy to open the book/CDs and start reading. So when I saw there was a graphic novel form of the story at my library, I snatched it up - boy I was glad I did.

To be honest, I think I would have DNF'd it if I read the book; the story is just not enough to warrant 360+ pages of words. Yet, with this adaption, I think the story shines and keeps the plot moving. Diana is a teenager living with the Amazons, yet doesn't feel she measures up in their opinion, so she works herself into an obsession of winning some foot race. During the race that she can clearly win, Diana abandons the race completely to save a girl from drowning when the ship she was traveling on explodes. Alia is not like other girls - she is a descendent of Helen of Troy and is a Warbringer. This is news to both Diana and Alia and they go on a journey with some of Alia's friends to find "the cure" to Alia's "condition". Turns out not everyone on the journey is down for the specific mission and the betrayal comes swiftly but not surprisingly. Diana not only has to protect Alia but also the world from this betrayal. I loved Alia and Diana, but my favorite character was Nim! She was the comedic break, the fashionista, the best friend, the life of this story. Nim needs her own story is what I am saying. The story is typical of young character goes on a mission to save herself/the world, but the characters are what makes the story engaging; I felt for Alia as she learned more about what she is and how her family works. The artwork is fine, but falls flat due to muted and washed out coloring. The characters are very distinct and their visual representations really fit into the personalities. There was racial and sexuality diversity without trying to shoe-horn the diversity into a message. I am not going to bother reading the book since I felt I got enough out of the graphic novel adaption. Also Nim needs her own comic series.

    Warbringer offers a fine, straightforward Wonder Woman adventure that'll appeal to the YA audience but doesn't really push any boundaries.

It's a simplistic quest narrative that starts off strong, but the lack of a clear villain muddies the narrative.

    Hits all the major points of the novel's plot, but of course substitutes nice art for descriptions and lacks the lyrical quality of Bardugo's prose. But if it encourages a reader to try Bardugo's novels, that will be a good thing.

    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?

It is based on two young girls and on friendship. Friendship is more important than a small elephant trunk people! Think of it as short term satisfaction vs long term happiness. I love it when stories break away from the moulding of girl meets guy and then life changes. After all we are strong woman, we don’t need a man. Moving away from the girls saving the day situation, the storyline still held its intensity and was fast paced and overall exciting. And most importantly it doesn’t leave much out that is in the book version of Warbringer. The graphics? I loved it. It’s great to see the amazon woman actually wearing clothes and not scampering around in barely nothing (thanks again Hollywood) but the characters were drawn in a tough, yet beautiful fashion and it was wonderful!

    First, before I get into my rant, I did enjoy some of the humorous dialogue in this book. The reason why my rating is so low is because of the basic premise of the book. The idea is that Helen of Troy started the Trojan War not because of her beauty but just because she was descended from some type of war-goddess. Just by existing, she created terrible war. Then, Helen's female descendants also all made terrible things happen just by existing. World War I and World War II were both caused because First, before I get into my rant, I did enjoy some of the humorous dialogue in this book.

Then, Helen's female descendants also all made terrible things happen just by existing. World War I and World War II were both caused because a woman was living her life normally. The Cuban Missile Crisis didn't become a full war because a girl was murdered when she was fifteen. So the moral here is that you should murder innocent women because they are inherently evil and the root of all wars??? Another thing that bothered me was that there were THREE typos. In one instance, they spelled "hear" as "here" (pg. 14). This is a graphic novel by a major publishing house and written by a famous YA author, how are there typos? This strikes me as lazy and incompetent, and really brought down my appreciation of the entire product.

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.

However, I just dont think a graphic novel can get across all the plot points needed, so it just felt either really overwhelming at time or just lacking in any context at all. But, I did enjoy and I'm glad I got to know these characters and see this art.

    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 story was powerful. Loved every second of this. Hig I absolutely loved this one. It correlated closely to the DC Icons book that it was based from.

    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.

    If you're familiar with any of Leigh Bardugo's work, you'll know that all her stories are character driven and full of world building. Even if you've never read any of her stuff, if you enjoy this sort of storytelling then you'll enjoy this. I'm a Wonder Woman fan and will always prefer the adult version & original graphic novels, but this was a nice take on the younger Diana Prince and perfect for those who like YA. It's a great introduction for younger readers getting into DC Comics.

    She is not yet Wonder Woman. She is still young Princess Diana of Themyscira, an immortal molded of clay by her mother, Queen Hippolyta. Different from the rest of her Amazonian sisters by virtue of her birth, Diana faces a lot of flak and cynical barbs from her sisterhood even as she constantly tries to prove her worth to them and herself. Diana is conflicted but eager to explore her powers and set her naysayers right. And she might have done just that if her kind heart doesn’t compel her to res She is not yet Wonder Woman. She is still young Princess Diana of Themyscira, an immortal molded of clay by her mother, Queen Hippolyta. Different from the rest of her Amazonian sisters by virtue of her birth, Diana faces a lot of flak and cynical barbs from her sisterhood even as she constantly tries to prove her worth to them and herself. Diana is conflicted but eager to explore her powers and set her naysayers right. And she might have done just that if her kind heart doesn’t compel her to rescue a mortal, Alia Keralis from a plane crash that shockingly happens within the invisible barriers of Themyscira. Alia is no ordinary mortal. She is a haptandrai, a Warbringer and is a direct descendent of Helen of Troy who was incidentally the daughter of Nemesis, the Goddess of divine retribution and revenge. Over the centuries, whenever a haptandrai has come of age, the age of conflict begins. Bloodshed, war and destruction is the trail that a Warbringer unleashes and Alia is about to come of age. Her entry into Themyscira is already wrecking havoc among the Amazons. However the cycle can be broken by a certain ritual and the only one who has the strength, commitment and selfless will to help Alia is Diana. As the two young heroines join fates in an adventure to fight destiny and villains both human and celestial, we witness Diana taking her first powerful stand into becoming the superheroine of legend. This graphic novel does complete justice to Leigh Bardugo’s original tale and is a fast-paced and entertaining ride. Brimming with the power of female friendship, feisty dialogues and beautiful panels drawn in a monochrome setting, the story pulls you right in and keeps you invested till the very end.
