    If digital comics arent your thing, I can implore you to give them a shot, but I can also direct you to your comic shop as well. The first reprint of the series, Ame-Comi Girls Featuring Wonder Woman #1 is hitting stores October 10. If youve been asking for comics for kids, THIS IS THAT BOOK. If youve been wanting to see brilliantly fun superhero action without darkness and gore, THIS IS THAT BOOK. If youve been yearning to see young women kick ass on the comics page, THIS IS THAT BOOK. And if you want the big two to publish more of any or all of the above, tell a friend and support this title. Don't let this chance pass us by. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Oct 13, 2012

    Look, this issue is a light bit of fun. I'm not sure if the series can sustain the rather slim concept, but this was entertaining - sexy and insubstantial, with wonderful art (for two-thirds of the issue). Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Oct 17, 2012

    Splendidly entertaining, mostly unoriginal, with a lot of delightful art and some less-than-amazing art. And yet, the "Ame-Comi" part of the series remains a mystery. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Oct 11, 2012

    Conner's artwork is the real star of the show, and I love the ferocity she instills in the title character. I love how emotive Conner's characters are, and she really brings her A game here. Furthermore, artist Tony Akins does an excellent job of aping Conner's style for the final 10 pages of the story. And then, when we reach the point where Wonder Woman has to wear the skimpiest of outfits for her mission of diplomacy, the comic falls apart. It's so ludicrous and gratuitous, it's almost impossible to get back into the story. Even the heroine herself points out how stupid the anime-inspired "costume" is. What's more frustrating is she's the only character to acknowledge it. I realize the entire Ame-Comi line is built on a foundation of these over-sexualized portrayals of the characters, but it's one thing to produce silly statuettes of them and another altogether to ask an audience to accept them in stories.
