    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Mar 18, 2015

    Another great set of stories in a series that demonstrates just how versatile a character Wonder Woman is in 2015, Sensation Comics #8 delivers heart, soul, punches, and laughs. And wrapped in an insanely gorgeous Jae Lee cover, this issue is far too awesome to pass up, for yourself or for the young one in your life. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 8, 2014

    There's a few morals to the story here that we see and it works well, even if it is a bit blunt at times with what it wants to do, but it's all those classic kind of morals and ideas that represented an entire generation or two of comics. It's refreshing to have it in this kind of clean cut, simple and effective way when everywhere else is more of the grimdark material. Kleid has a pretty fun and bouncy script here that keeps it all going well and Haspiel really hits it out of the park with his artwork to give it that old school feeling with a great touch of the present as well, and some cute nods such as the way we see the interior of the invisible jet and its parts. And that's really well helped by what Allen Passalaqua does with his use of color here. All in all, I'm typically not a fan of the actual older books and their style in my modern reading, but I love the throws to the past and they do a great job here. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Oct 5, 2014

    The art in this issue is by Dean Haspiel, with colours by Allen Passalaqua, letters by Saida Temofonte and the mind-blowing cover by none other than Adam Hughes himself. As I've said, the art is rather cartoony and it brings to mind the old cartoons and the early days of Superman in the pages of Action Comics. That's a good thing I think, since it keeps the spirit of the series alive and also manages to be a surprise at the same time. A double benefit as it turns out. Dean's Wonder Woman and Deadman are definitely warriors indeed. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Kate Kane Oct 3, 2014

    The SENSATION COMICS weeks story was short and strange with Wonder Woman fighting Ras for his bizarre purple ray. Thankfully it is only a short story and at least we can hope for another try at the retro look down the line. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 3, 2014

    I can't recommend this issue of Sensation Comics.  It has a really cool retro look,  but the art doesn't fit the story, mainly because the story is all over the place.  It's as if Neil Kleid had five ideas and just crammed them all together.  It doesn't work and only results in a jumbled mess that will be forgotten the minute you finish it.  Better yet, just skip it and hope for something better next week.
