    This is a series I think I will be happy to the regular read list for a while and see how it develops. Read Full Review

    I am a fan of this book and love both Peter J. Tomasi and Doug Mahnke so this should be an easy slam dunk.  Unfortunately, it got rejected by the rim.  Tomasi's story attempts to show how different our heroes are, but really manages to make them look horrible.  Mahnke's art isn't horrible, but it's not very good when compared to his previous work.  This issue is not the strong start I hoped for from this new creative team, however, the ending and cliffhanger have me looking forward to next month.  I hope Tomasi and Manke come through.

    "Superman/Wonder Woman" has a lot of assumed potential to be something different, and if Tomasi and Mahnke can pull that out sooner rather than later then it's easy to excuse an otherwise average first issue. Tomasi and Mahnke both have earned some good will over recent years at DC as well, which helps; Tomasi's run on "Batman and Robin" emphasizes heart and family in the story, and Mahnke is known for big, explosive stories with well-defined characters in the center of it all, so all things considered their "Superman/Wonder Woman" should have some pay-off down the line. At its onset it's rather run of the mill, but out of the two books with Diana's superhero name on the cover this is the one I'd hedge overall bets on. Read Full Review

    All that said, Superman is written great. This Superman sounds like Classic Clark. And the art is just fantastic. Like Daniel before him, Mahnke's art might keep this book on my pull list longer than it would otherwise. I'll probably read this first arc and give Tomasi some time to get his feet under him. But then .... we'll have to see. Read Full Review

    After a string of solid but haphazard Justice League issues, Mahnke is back in top form. His pages brim with energy regardless of whether the focus is on superhuman combat or intimate relationship scenes. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Nov 24, 2014

    "Superman/Wonder Woman" #13 is the better Wonder Woman title of the week, despite some characterization and artistic inconsistencies. An intriguing look at a side of two characters not often seen is unfortunately truncated by an obligatory battle scene, but overall it remains a nice start to the title's second year.
