Justice League: The Darkseid War

In what is the final story arc of the New 52 volume of Justice League, Wonder Woman takes the center stage in this epic tale about gods and monsters from writer (and co-writer of Wonder Woman 1984) Geoff Johns and artist Jason Fabok. Every thing about this story is massive, which is clear from the first couple of pages and it’s exhilarating to read.

This story obviously isn’t only a Wonder Woman story, but she is absolutely the focal point of it. The entire conflict is seen through her eyes and she acts as a sort of a grounding factor for the other characters, which is saying something. And, to be quite frank, using Wonder Woman as the viewpoint character is a fantastic move.

Whilst two giant gods are fighting for control of the Anti-Life Equation, Wonder Woman’s compassion allows the reader to see more than that. It allows the reader to see each and every character as more than just chess pieces in an immense game, but rather as people. Flawed people.

So, should you read this story if you want a great Wonder Woman story? Yes, you should. Should you read this if you want a great Justice League story? Also, yes because Darkseid War accomplishes both.
