18WONDER WOMAN: BLOOD

Wonder Woman: Blood is an incredible comic book series written by Brian Azzarello for DC Comics’ The New 52 continuity reboot. It was masterfully illustrated by Cliff Chiang (and later Tony Akins, who unfortunately didn’t do as great of a job).

The premise of the Blood storyline and the Wonder Woman movie are very close,

perhaps being the material that filmmakers were inspired by the most during the film’s production. In both the comic and the DCEU movie, Diana is lied to about her origins, about who she really is besides an Amazonian, and eventually she leaves Paradise Island for London.

Unlike the film, however, Diana is driven out to the world because she feels completely betrayed by her own mother, Queen Hippolyta, for having lied about her past. The comic book’s main villains are Hera – who Hippolyta was trying to protect Wonder Woman from – Hades, and Apollo.
