    With the new issue of Superman/Wonder Woman, Peter J. Tomasi chooses to focus entirely on what this means for Superman. While this certainly makes for an interesting Superman story, it leaves Wonder Woman in the role of a supporting character even though she has equal billing on the book. Read Full Review

    There are those that like the idea behind this series as they have always wanted to see what Superman and Wonder Woman would look like together, but in order for this to be more than a stunt and fanboy service they would also need to provide a story line that is worthy of the union, and so far in this series there hasn't been one. That this series is thrown into the mostly mediocre Truth crossover from Superman doesn't help much either as it once again doesn't give this series much to build on. Instead the story here is about par for the course for this series, if not a bit worse, as Truth drags down a little bit what has mostly been an average series. Read Full Review

    There's potential here, though, particularly in the last page, but Tomasi needs to settle his focus if readers are going to stay invested. Read Full Review

    I can only hope that at some point the different aspects of the story intersect in a worthwhile conclusion. And while I love Doug Mahnke's art and thought every splash was beautiful, I wonder if I could have got more story for my dollar if there were less of them. Read Full Review

    The issue ends with the setup for a throw down next issue and, though the characters that confront Clark and Diana are part of the mystery, they're definitely not the masterminds. It's a little tonally concerning that this book is as dark as it is; the '90s showed that brooding, pouty Superman stories are some of the worst. The upside is that Tomasi is a writer who knows how to dig deep on a character before lifting them back up; after all, he was the guy who dealt with almost all of Batman's stages of grief after the passing of Damian Wayne. Fans looking for a darker perspective on the new status quo and a big mystery to boot will want to jump on this issue. Read Full Review

    While I loved seeing Tomasi continue making Wonder Woman the rock of this book, there wasn't much else going on.  The mystery of Smallville was too much been there, done that and the cliffhanger just felt silly.  I hate to say it, but overall this issue was just mediocre. Read Full Review

    The issue's ends with a cliffhanger and the appearance of the Suicide Squad. Still, this is by no means a good issue. The characterizations are completely off, and the story is just a huge build-up for the cliffhanger. The artwork is okay, without which, the whole thing would have been unreadable. Read Full Review
