    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 15, 2015

    This is my favorite issue in the Truth story to date.  It was a fun and mysterious story that pushed both the event and this book forward and I commend Peter Tomasi for that.  Doug Mahnke's art was good, but Wil Quintana's colors stole the show.  This issue alone gives me hope for the Truth story going forward and I hope the other writers grab the baton and run with it.

    Superman/Wonder Woman #19 is a huge step up from the disappointing entry we got last month, with the insertion of the Suicide Squad and focus on this power couple resulting in some exciting moments. It also leaves on a high, with Superman's actions having me more excited for the future of Truth. Read Full Review

    For once, it felt like Clark and Diana cared for each other and loved each other in a real sort of way. As I was reading that scene, I could see how these two might be in a relationship. And I have never ever felt that way before. Add the fun fight scene and the wonderful art and I have to admit I enjoyed this issue. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Jul 20, 2015

    That mutual trust and shared struggle is what makes Superman/Wonder Woman #19 feel like another important step in the development of this relationship. They've shared major battles together. They've shared the frustrations of being on the same team as Batman together. Now, they're sharing each other's personal struggles and even when one of them is weak, it still feels like a relationship among equals. That sort of thing is difficult to find in an era of radical feminism, men's rights activists, and Kardashian marriages. But that's exactly what makes it so meaningful. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jul 16, 2015

    "Superman/Wonder Woman" seems like an unnecessary excess when considering the landscape of DC's new releases, but Tomasi, Mahnke, Mendoza, Quintana and Leigh provide enough action, excitement and polished craftsmanship to elevate this title. Yes, it stars two of DC's most recognizable characters and, arguably, both are struggling to find themselves and their audience right now, but that doesn't stop this creative team from delivering a solid fight in the pages of "Superman/Wonder Woman" #19, especially when tangling with the Suicide Squad, whose popularity wave is just now beginning to rebuild.

    Overall: I wanted to like this issue much more. I really like the creative team, and I'm usually a big fan of Mahnke's art. His Clark looks great in action and the dialogue scenes, but his Diana is very angular this issue and it just didn't work. Hoping it's a one time thing and this improves next issue. As a whole I'm enjoying the "Truth" crossover in the Superman titles, this was just a bad bump in the road. Still I'm optimistic going forward. It just wasn't a good showing this month. Let the bullet wounds heal and back at it next time. Read Full Review

    Not much happens in "Superman/Wonder Woman" #19 despite being an entertaining issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 16, 2015

    The downside to involving every Superman book in the "Truth" storyline is that some series are going to stand out more than others. Unfortunately for Superman/Wonder Woman, it doesn't have a great deal to add to the ongoing conflict of Superman struggling with his diminished powers and exposed identity. Read Full Review

    Superman/Wonder Woman #19 was a poor read. There is no way I would ever recommend anyone spend their hard earned money on this issue. The only readers that I believewould enjoy this issue are die-hard Wonder Woman fans and any Dude Bro Superman fans. There are so many othersuper hero comics on the market that offer a far superior bang for your buck. Honestly? If you are just hankering for some Wonder Woman or some Superman then go buy a trade paperback of some older pre-New 52 Wonder Woman or Superman stories. Read Full Review
