    Writer Larry Hama certainly doesn't hold back any punches with this one. Convergence: Wonder Woman #2 will easily go down as one of the more brutal and sullen of all the tie-ins. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is one of the better Convergence tie-ins. It tells a personal story without delving into any sort of unnecessary minutiae. Its a nice, brisk, recapitulation of Wonder Womans character and cast, and I enjoyed it under that lens. Could it have done more, said more? Of course, most of these tie-ins could have, but we judge across the board and this was one of the better ones. Only one week left anyway. Comments and thoughts appreciated below. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas May 23, 2015

    Convergence: Wonder Woman is essentially a story about the power and essence of religion. That isn't because Diana Prince is a religious figure. This is the pre-Crisis Wonder Woman, a hero who certainly had connections with the Greek gods but who had not yet ascended to divine status herself, as has happened in the present world of the DCU. Rather, it is because the situation in which the characters find themselves calls forth the intense, primal urges from which formal religion arises, the need for worship and comfort and hope, the need to believe in a reason and pattern and purpose to the universe and the events that unfold within it. The story also speaks to the demands of religion, which are the demands of duty and belief, and, at least within the context of the Judeo-Christian tradition, the demands of sacrifice.

    The ending's a bit too sudden, a casualty of Hama's antiquated style of comic story-telling, but otherwise Convergence: Wonder Woman #2 is a big slice of fun. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt May 20, 2015

    This goes with the rushed nature of this series, that there is no time to establish these versions of the characters outside of the regular DC continuity, and thus the characters are more like caricatures of the regular versions as opposed to the interesting twists which took place in the alternate realities. This doesn't help as the problem on the whole with Convergence has been the mismatch of characters from different eras and inspirations and such is the case again here. In the history of Wonder Woman, at least since the 1980s, the Joker actually shows up fairly often as an enemy of Wonder Woman, but he is not an arch-enemy, and his presence here feels artificial, especially for what is supposed to be such a huge crossover. Once again this is a misfire for DC and Convergence, as its big crossover of the summer seems to be going nowhere. Read Full Review

    A strange setting for the Amazing Amazon, but still a creepy and effective tale. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 21, 2015

    "Convergence: Wonder Woman" #2 is a big letdown. The story doesn't go anywhere -- unless you've been dying to see Wonder Woman's supporting cast get killed by vampires -- and all of the world building from the first half of the miniseries is completely missing. In the end, this is a comic from "Convergence" that will most likely be forgotten in a matter of months. There's nothing that stands out here, unfortunately. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jun 2, 2015

    Just as the art disappointed as compared to what we got in the first issue, so did the writing. The focus on the first issue was on faith and religion, how the former offers hope and clarity, while the latter can lead to judgment and hatred. But this concluding issue abandons those notions, and in their place are a typical vampire showdown and Diana's hand-wringing over killing monsters we know are already dead. While the ending boasts more of a bummer tone than I expected and I appreciated the (albeit unexplained) twist when it came to the heroine's ally, I ultimately was left scratching my head, wondering what the point of it all was. On top of that, early in the story, the vampiric Joker notes he can recover from a staking and can only truly be destroying through decapitation, and then it doesn't happen. It's like there was a gun on the wall and no one ever fired it. Read Full Review

    I didn't enjoy the first issue in this series enough to recommend it and I like this one even less.  It's bad enough that Wonder Woman can't save anyone around her, but the issue ends with the worst "victory" in all of Convergence.  Nobody, even Wonder woman fans, will be missing anything by skipping this story.
