Part of me wants to be positive and say Brian Azzarello is trying. He is, right? There’s a lot of mythology being updated here and a whole thing with Zeus getting busy with a human girl again… I mean, it’s a Terminator knock-off, but there’s foundation for it.
But does trying make up for Azzarello’s writing being really weak? This issue open with some son of Zeus (Ares maybe?) doing bad things for a page or two, then we get to this farmhouse where we keep returning. Azzarello writes some lame narration from the mythological assassins’ points of view (I think) and Wonder Woman’s only in it as, you know, the T-800. Only without a character. It’s like if the Terminator from the first movie were a good guy, but without character development.
Cliff Chiang can’t draw mythological creatures, but he can draw everything else and quite well.
