    I love the way Sharp draws the New 52 Themyscira. It's true to the way Chiang designed it, but the more detailed art makes it seem so much more alive and lived in. And the design for that sword in front of Steve definitely looks Ares related.
    And fittingly dark and gritty compared to Scott's Amazons (who are probably going to end up being the genuine article that Diana's forgotten about).

    I wonder if the core of "The Lies" will end up having their origin tied to Diana's first fight with Ares in Year One?

    Sharp even made Hippolyta's New 52 costume bearable.

    To me, this aspect is "Up In The Air" until I have a pretty good explanation.

    Perhaps because this is the Hippolyta Diana actually remembers?

    It could be as simple as having a different artists between the stories...but that would seem like a big oversight.

    If Diana's trips to the new 52 island were able to supplant her true memories before, stands to reason it could do it again. Thats some damn powerful illusions. Unless the location itself is an archetype that has various shades and aspects.

    Pretty sure we're going to find out that's NOT the real Hippolyta. Sure, it would actually make perfect sense for Azarello's Hippolyta to scowl hatefully for no good reason, but that just looks like the perfect way to foreshadow "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark (Themiscyra.)"

    Perhaps what is rotten is....the entire state and everyone in it?
    Boy did I dislike Azzarello's interpretation of the Amazons and "Paradise Island". Soooooooooooooooooooo NOT, dude. I have been looking for an Absolute WW book and was thrilled to see one finally advertised. Then I learned it was the Azzarello collection part 1 or what have. Cliff's work is of course lovely. But savage, mud hut misandrist Amazons? No thank you, man. I hope that this REBIRTH will deal with that bit as it was most offensive.

    Looking forward to see how both storylines play out. Seeing Etta get ready to go to town is exciting but I echo Outside's point on how Etta matches up versus Sasha; Etta is comically outmatched.

    I was thinking it was a turkey for Thanksgiving and wondering what happened to it's tail feathers. lol

    Several of the Amazons in the background look familiar. The one with curly brown hair on the far right could be Vanessa Kapatellis. Also the red head just behind the dog is naggingly familiar but I just can't place it.

    Intersting homage to Conans sword from the 80s movie leaning against the table. And I see Steve has been served Burger and fries. LOL

    If ten years of recording The Young and the Restless for my mother have taught me anything, it's that characters in serial dramas are always happily in love...until they're not

    Hmmm, I won't give spoilers, but I bet that a considerable part of WW's fans will not like this issue at all.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the revelation at the end of this issue.

    spoilers:
    I'm perfectly happy to see the Azzarello stories disapear but not the pre-52 stories. That being said, Themyscria has been a target for some many years, multiple attacks, wars etc, it would be nice for that not to be the case. Usually Greg doesn't wipe the slate clean when he takes on a book, very curious as to what will happen here.

    Um, you do remember what he did with Hera and Phil Jimenez's Themyscira.
