    Two tales in this graphic novel.Wonder Woman beats down everyone in the JLA because a prophecy predicts that when they face a dragon everyone else but she will die Some nice folklore is woven into this one with good artwork.Then .Wonder Woman and the JLA help aliens warring with one another and not sharing the entire truth A fairly good rationale for why the JLA have to wear giant robotic suits I was tempted to get the next tale after this one but never bothered after seeing the low reviews MY GRADE B.

    I m a big Wonder Woman fan Here s the one problem Wonder Woman is a great character, but she doesn t have many great stories Personally, I think it s because she lacks a quality rogues gallery After all, one of the thing that makes Batman, Superman, Spider Man, and the X Men so great is the sheer variety of colorful villains they re always fighting Wonder Woman hasCheetah Ares I m not sure Another problem is that back in the hey day of comics, many of the best writers in the industry who happened to be male didn t want to work on a book with a female protagonist Jerks As a result, WW was written by a rotating lineup of second tier talent for a number of years and never really established classic stories.Thankfully, LEAGUE OF ONE is one of those rare Wonder Woman gems that fans hope for This was a quick read, and a good one The gist of the plot is an interesting blend of superhero and classic fantasy A bunch of evil gnomes awaken an ancient dragon deeps in the mountains of Europe Wonder Woman learns of this development from the Oracle, who foresees that whoever confronts the dragon will be successful in stopping it, but will perish in the process Wonder Woman knows that if the Justice League discovers the dragon, they will attempt to help her defeat it and all seven members of the league will be killed In order to protect her teammates, she deceives, preoccupies, and subdues all the other members of the JLA and faces the dragon herself My favorite part of this book is the characterization of Wonder Woman The story portrays Wonder Woman as a being of immense purity who regularly subjects herself to her own Lasso of Truth in order to purge herself of lies and deceit As a result of her enduring honestly, its interesting to watch her struggle to betray her teammates, even though she s doing it to save their lives The action sequences in this book are a lot of fun, but its the character interactions with the rest of the Justice League that interested me most The inclusion of dragons, gnomes, and other fantasy elements in a superhero story was also a fresh inclusion.The author of this book is also the artist, and his painted panels are beautiful It s rare to find a creator this adept at both writing and illustrating My only complaint is that the characters are sometimes painted without much detail and their faces do not always look consistent through the entire book Still, it s a small complaint and understandable given the amount of work required to paint 100 pages Overall, I was very pleased with this book and would recommend it to all comic book readers, but especially those looking for a great Wonder Woman story.

    This edition contains two Justice League stories by Christopher Moeller.The first tale, which the book takes its name from, Justice League A League of One, has Wonder Woman taking the lead When she learns of the prophecy involving the fate of the Justice League, she takes it upon herself to prevent it at the cost of her own life What defines this story is the characterization of Wonder Woman Moeller for me perfectly captures an aspect of her that made her DC s premier female superhero Selfless,Loyal, Truth seeking and a powerful warrior Another thing is that though using mythology ostensibly from the Middle Ages, it fits perfectly with her own mythology taken from the Greeks.I liketo read read stories that puts Wonder Woman in a fantasy setting Though I admit there are times when other writers does not pull it off as well as Moeller in this one The ancient world meet the modern world story does not comes across as cliched or forced.The second story, JLA CLASSIFIED COLD STEEL, has a sci fi bent to it This time, each member of the JLA has equal screen time There s that subplot about Green Lantern not as well developed as I would like it to be Two alien civilizations at war with each other and the Justice League takes part in the side that they think is the good side of course, Batman doesn t easily buy into their story Though not as well written as the first and the revelation at the end left me a bit confused, it features one of the coolest things ever portrayed in comics i.e mecha versions of the Justice League It would have also benefitted from having world building put into it Through it all, I thought that Moeller has a great grasp on the dramatic the first story reads like classical tragedy while the second is space opera I m also a fan of his painted artwork, it adapts quite naturally to the comic medium.

    This is one of my favorite Wonder Woman books I have read reviews on it throughout the internet and it usually receives 3 stars I think that people are expecting something different The book is not really about an adventure but about Wonder Woman as a person and I feel the book does an excellent job of portraying who she really is and what she is all about truth.Wonder Woman was created by the man who invented the lie detector test To him, telling the truth was an important part of life He chose a pretty interesting lifestyle and was always honest about it and surprisingly people s judgements did not hinder his success.In the book Wonder Woman lays her lasso of truth over her shoulders every morning to bring to light any lies she may be telling herself Considering how strong denial is in people, I find this to be amazingly strong and honorable I wish I had my own magic lasso to expose my lies to myself.Wonder Woman also has to lie in this book and is not very good at it Plus the books antagonist is a dragon Dragons are always cool in a book.

    3.5 stars , Christopher Moeller is proably one of the best artists to draw wonder woman He gives her this divine persona which is great It s not like any other regular comic book art It s like watching portraits depicting the JL as divine beings The story itself was nice, not super interesting just nice I loved how he used physical bodies to represent Good or evil wonderwoman representing the good ofcourse The story is a mixture of biblical metaphors and greek mythology which i always find very interesting I recommend this book to any WonderWoman fan out there.

    I haven t gotten to the second half of the book with the crashed alien ship and the giant JLA robots but I doubt I ll review that part anyway so let me focus on the titular story Justice League A League of One aka WHINER WOMAN The plot Dragon wakes up, Oracle says JLA will face it but die in the process, WW knows that the JLA is an ideal not individuals so she knocks out her friends to be the JLA by herself and take on the suicide mission alone, slight spoiler BS where death means a need for CPR Oh and there are Dryadsfor no apparent reason beyond giving WW someone to talk to.So I picked up this book because it was on a watchmojo list for top 10 WW stories and I really like WW but I did not like this Yes, it does explore Diana s character Beneath the truth, beyond the warrior is a loving heart willing to shoulder the burden of all the world to protect those she loves A pure, honest desire to do whatever it takes to keep others safeand CONSTANTLY complain while doing it Yes, I get it, she s so into truth that she doesn t even tell little white lies and betraying her friends must suck but she s not killing them At worst she s worrying and annoying them Stop being so damn melodramatic She actually has a panel reminiscent of Furiosa from Mad Max Fury Road where she falls to her knees and cries oh why me to the Gods Except in this case I just imagine them rolling their eyes and saying quit your complaining Yes, facing death is horrible, but she only mildly regrets that because her work as an emissary for peace will be left undone No she s crying because of the betrayal and even the JLA doesn t REALLY care Only Superman seems mildly hurt by it To compare and contrast In Gotham Sirens Harley and Ivy literally torture Catwoman for information without a second thought and she forgive them because they make her breakfast No fuss, no muss Terrible thing to do but its the sort of thing that happens all the time so they laugh it off Here WW basically lets hundreds of people get killed by the dragon because she s busy moping about lying to her friends That s not the hardened warrior she literally turns into an armor clad monster for a moment when the dragon semi corrupts her who ends wars with wisdom, compassion and tactical prowess That s WW acting exactly like the feint hearted women she hates to see in movies All that said Batman giving an anti feminist rant about blaming others for your problems and Superman falling for the hey, look over there trick was pretty funny.I mean, if you don t know WW, give this a read but this is certainly NOT her best outing The WW of Greg Rucka s run or the Circle would look at this incarnation and be offended.
