Xena warrior Princess vol 4 #1Xena Warrior Princess Vol 4 #1

Xena gets a reboot and this time she’s more Wonder Woman than ever, even going as far as adding a red cape and have her holding a rope in her first panel. With Wonder Woman’s ‘Rebirth’ look these two could be one and the same.

The story has a slightly different origin than the TV show with Gabriele already being in her stick wielding sidekick outfit and not her damsel in distress gown, in the show Gabriela was introduced tricking a Cyclops into letting her go.

The issue zips by with it all being what would be a single opening scene on the show.
A simple issue to have Xena meet Gabby and show up some mercenaries at the same time.

When Gabriele is attacked by three thugs on her way to Athens, her wit and charm seem to be doing the job against the men until things get physical and the mood changes. Xena arrives in time to save her. The men used to work for Xena when she was a warlord and are not too happy with Xena’s new life on the straight and narrow. After being embarrassed by both Xena and Gabriela the men leave and Xena and Gabriela travel to Athens together.
Will they part ways once they’ve traced Athens… of course not, we all know these two are soul mates and will be together forever.

The art is absolutely stunning, with truly beautiful faces on all the characters.

I've been collecting comics since I was 13. A comic shop near where I lived was closing down and selling all their back issues for 25p. My cousin and I had a look around. I had £5 and spent it all on Wonder Woman comics. For the next decade I picked up a few more here and there but nothing serious until I spent the day in the centre of London and saw half a dozen comic book stores. It didn't take long after that to complete the whole 226 issue run. While collecting Wonder Woman comics, several more titles peeked my interest including Supergirl and Young Justice by Peter David which to this day have been my all time favourite comic runs. Now I'm almost 8,000 comics deep into my obsession and have been lucky enough to review comics for the past couple of years and now have my own site to share my passion.
