Doesn't it go back to a lot of the kinda pacifist stuff that her creator had in mind in the 50s or whatnot? Rather than the warrior princess mainstream Diana has been a while.

Not that warrior princess Diana is bad, but nice to see one of these Earth One graphic novels actually being a different take on a character, rather than E1 Batman/Superman which just seemed like they were being more 'modern' takes and basically being the same.
It's a very different take on WW and the Amazons. I enjoyed the hell out of it.

One of the few characters who have good runs but very few of exceptional quality.

The writers are too preocupied with agendas to actually write good stories with her. She has no definite arc, she has no definite writer except William Marston and they don't want to go there (many will try to say Perez, or Rucka, but..), she has somewhat of a rogue gallery [Ares, Cheetah, Circe], but besides Ares all are boring as fock...

I agree with this, she has a long but uninspiring history which is a shame for a character who has been around that long. While I like her being around in the League, I have to admit to having zero interest in her as an individual character - not much of a personality, lame villains, dull backstory, too many powerups, basically turned into a female Superman. But if anyone can do something interesting with her it would be Morrison, and based on the comments here this one might be worth checking out.

i actually wasn't crazy about the series tbh. and i wasn't crazy about her revamped origin at all. i really liked her link to the gods that her origin allowed. there is still SOME tie, clearly, in this revamp, but it's not the same in terms of diana's direct relationship to the gods. that was always my favourite part of the character and it allowed for some of the best stories and a lot of cool development as she struggled to figure out exactly what she was. there were some VERY good wonder woman arcs over the years, but there were a LOT of terrible ones, and really no single DEFINITIVE one. i was hoping this series could be the one--or at least a good starting point for one. i found it boring and i don't think it really started anything new or interesting imo.... sad

Lemme just weigh in to rankle more egos:

Gaiman >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Moore >> Morrison

I admit only that Morrison has unique, ambitious ideas. I think his execution sucks most times, and that he's one of the most overrated writers in comics.

yes
