WONDER WOMAN: Amazons Attack! by Will Pfeifer and Pete Woods

The 6-issue miniseries AMAZONS ATTACK by the CATWOMAN creative team of Will Pfeifer and Pete Woods explodes in this hardcover volume! Over a year since the events of INFINITE CRISIS, Wonder Woman's Amazon Sisters have retreated to the realm of the gods. But now the Amazons are back, screaming for vengeance. What could compel the Amazons to renounce their peaceful ways and attack the United States? The answers will prove useless to a country whose super-powered protectors are utterly unprepared for this savage attack. And where is Wonder Woman while her sisters threaten to destroy a nation?

When we went to the library yesterday, hubby found this book and because he knows I love Wonder Woman, he showed it to me. Of course, I had to borrow it and decided to get stuck into it today.

Circe resurrect Queen Hippolyta and when she asks about her daughter Diana, Circe tells her the American government has her. The queen then declares war on mankind by unleashing the Amazons on American soil to destroy them. While the Justice League tries to protect humans and Wonder Woman confronts her mother to try and end this senseless war...

It started out pretty well. I liked the character list at the front, and the story seemed like it was going somewhere. For a while. Then, a lot of stuff started to happen behind the scenes. Some of what was going on didn't make much sense. And the more I read, the more the story seemed disjointed--jumping from here to there, and back again without making sense.

In the end, I found the disjointed events to be more confusing than anything else. Which is a real shame since I love Wonder Woman. Though to be honest, she really wasn't in it much. Or seemed very important to the overall story, even though the whole war thing starts because of her. Strange.

The drawings are nice. Even if most of the women look the same--young, with big boobs and muscled bodies. :/ At least Wonder Woman looked cool
