I know how the dialogue is stylized is supposed to be in line with the characters' personalities but this form of characterization made the dialogue difficult to read to the point 3/4ths of the way through, I just stopped reading it cause it was putting too much strain on my eyes.

Otherwise greatly enjoyed what parts of the story I was able to pick up. Liked the parts that Despair, Delirium, & Death's trio more than I did Dream's.

Chibi chibi everywhere! I enjoyed it less than the 'The Little Endless Storybook' but it was fun and cute and I want to cuddle lots of the arts. Great companion piece for the sillier fans of the Sandman comics.

A wonderful collection of short stories that are only loosely connected to the overall narrative, but give a lot of depth to it.

Wonder Woman: The True Amazon is an elegant and beautifully painted one volume storybook-style origin story for the Amazon Princess Diana. Its is written and illustrated by Jill Thompson,an Eisner Award-winning American comic book writer and illustrator (her work is wonderful). The comic itself is certainly beautiful and emotionally engaging. The story is an interesting take on Wonder Woman's origins dealing with the idea that she wasn't always the most compassionate superhero out there but instead she was a selfish girl all too aware of her gifts. Diana's compassion is certainly why I think she is my favorite superhero, and why many people love her, but I think this story illustrates that to become compassionate and in order to make a commitment to Peace and Justice the way Diana does
one must truly understand loss, suffering, and come to terms with issues of the ego. Compassion is the transcendence of the self after all. The story does make it seem like Diana doesn't have a choice when it comes to pursuing compassion, peace, and justice because in a way, she is atoning for her sins but perhaps she quickly does come to love mankind and become the noble superhero we adore.
