    An enjoyable glimpse into the truth behind the biggest drama in Flashpoint, though it opens more questions than it answers. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 26, 2011

    The story for this book works pretty well in helping to shape the back story of Flashpoint while still standing strong enough on its own. What helps to make it even better though is Scott Clark's artwork as he provides it with a really rich sense of self both for the characters and the backgrounds. Both Atlantis and Themyscira shine here overall without being overdone and the character artwork is just gorgeous to look at a lot of times with its rich look and the amount of detail to the outfits, hairpieces and so forth. He does a wonderful job of visualizing both of these worlds in brief form. With the story itself, it's definitely one of the miniseries that said to me that I need to come back for more because it's filled with a lot of plot points that have come to fruition elsewhere. There's a lot to like here and the book is a very easy pick-up, standing on its own while enhancing the other books and the core series itself. Read Full Review

    Very strong issue, and probably the most important miniseries yet when it comes to understanding the world of Flashpoint. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jun 17, 2011

    This is the backstory for the "present day" events in Flashpoint, and of the tie-in books I've seen so far, this one is the best. But that's not exactly high praise. Read Full Review

    IGN - Erik Norris Jun 16, 2011

    Wonder Woman and the Furies #1 still ranks as a solid comic, inconsistent artwork notwithstanding. It seems Abnett and Lanning are having some fun with this concept and are getting right into the thick of the story to make sure each issue provides some substance. Wonder Woman and the Furies #1 definitely succeeds there. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Jun 16, 2011

    In general this issue delivered an interesting story and set up despite some utterly bizarre art decisions. Abnett and Lanning have this series surprisingly well in hand, even for a non-believer like myself. Time will tell if others can follow them as competently. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Jun 15, 2011

    The art from Scott Clark is pretty average. Nothing he does is awful, but its also nothing to help lift this boring story out its contrived hole. Clark seems to prefer lots of tiny details as opposed to strong lines. You can see Aquaman's long, luxurious locks blowing in the wind but the character himself has no weight. With so much rich psychological material that could have been born of Aquaman and Wonder Woman going to war, DC has opted to punk out and make sure neither of the iconic characters have any real blood on their hands. It takes the gravitas not only out of Wonder Woman And The Furies but out of Flashpoint as well. Read Full Review
