    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Nov 13, 2013

    Only two issues in and this series has now become one of my favorites. Superman and Wonder Woman make a great pair, at least in terms of starring in a comic together. This book is driven by the story and the fact that these two powerhouses are about to meet some really big threats. With subplots involving their separate supporting casts, it's easy to see where these characters are coming from and it's a nice way to tie this series into their separate titles. Tony Daniel is rocking it in the art department and the book has the big epic feel it deserves. With the facets of the story Soule is laying out and Daniel's art, I can't wait to read more.

    Following The Nerd - Jake Tanner Nov 14, 2013

    This is a book that I can't wait to read more of. It's only 2 issues in, but with Charles Soule writing it, it's already one of the first things I read when it comes out. (If the art stays on par with what we're being shown, it's going to keep crawling up the pile!) If you were on the fence about whether or not to read this book, because like me, you weren't so sure about the romance between Supes and WW, take my word for it; READ THIS BOOK. It's packed with action, humorous banter, and gorgeous art. At only 2 issues in what do you have to lose? Read Full Review

    Comics Refueled - superiorchris Nov 14, 2013

    Soule provides a familiar Superman and Wonder Woman for those pre 52 readers. This story is going great as it builds up to the return of one familiar enemy. The art team is on a superior level. The pencils and colors are breathtaking. If you're looking for a dynamic and nostalgic feel to these two characters then Soule and Tony have you covered Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 16, 2013

    Superman/Wonder Woman #2 continues to impress.  Charles Soule is giving us a personal tale of two of Earth's most powerful Heroes.  Tony S. Daniel's art compliments both the story and it's main characters so well.  This is now become one of my top five books in the New 52. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Nov 16, 2013

    This is a great comic and is proving all the naysayers wrong. Charles Soule and Tony S. Daniel are building a power couple to be remembered for a very long time. I can't wait for issue #3. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - kanchilr1 Nov 13, 2013

    Soule and Daniel continue to thoroughly impress readers on this stellar comic. The book is better than it has any right to be. Enjoy the two creators run swiftly through the DC Universe with a large amount of swagger. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Nov 13, 2013

    Superman/Wonder Woman is a prime example of how to write these icons. Soule and Daniel have knocked this one out of the park. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Bill Janzen Nov 18, 2013

    Though it's only 2 issues in so far I'm enjoying this series far more than the Action Comics, Superman, or Wonder Woman series. Superman and Wonder Woman have always been great characters together, and with Soule and Daniel's work here they make for a fantastic new pairing. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Nov 13, 2013

    But Superman/Wonder Woman #2 does succeed in one big way - namely, it's a surprisingly nuanced take on a romantic pairing that initially made a lot of people skeptical. Yet two issues in, while I still don't see the Man of Steel and the Amazing Amazon living happily ever after, I can at least buy their budding relationship, and find myself excited to see where they go next. If Soule and Daniel can continue adding superheroic trappings to the always relatable pitfalls of dating, Superman/Wonder Woman will stand as one of DC's most surprising hits. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Matt Sculthorpe Nov 14, 2013

    Superman/Wonder Woman #2 is a great second issue. It moves the story minimally but is full of awesome character moments. It is still trying to find its legs, but there is a worthy foundation there. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Meagan Damore Nov 18, 2013

    As someone who is -- frankly -- leery of the Superman and Wonder Woman pairing, I didn't quite expect just how delightful Charles Soule and Tony S. Daniel's "Superman/Wonder Woman" #2 would be. As it builds toward an exciting story arc that is sure to wow, "Superman/Wonder Woman" is guaranteed to be a nice surprise. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Nov 13, 2013

    Superman/Wonder Woman #2 is a good book, but again, not something you need to rush out to the store to buy. The occasional out of character moment and lack of story progression hurt the book, but the rest of the writing and the artwork makes up for it. If you liked the last issue give this one a go.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 16, 2013

    I don't think this series is going to become a regular purchase for me, but I wanted to give it another issue or two to win me over. I could complain until I'm blue in the face about how forced the Superman/Wonder Woman relationship is, and this issue doesn't help in the least. There's no chemistry between the two main characters. They are still the same Superman and Wonder Woman they have always been, more like friendly siblings than anything romantic. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 19, 2013

    Although I'm against Superman needing magic god armor to take on anyone, the series of events does get the Man of Steel bitch slapped by Apollo whose second move is nowhere near as intelligent and leaves the god at the mercy of Superman. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 20, 2013

    So there was a lot that to me seemed wrong in this book and most of it focused on the characterization of our titular heroes. The art and the supporting players of the Gods (and Cat Grant who gets a page) all were very good. And I suppose that those things as well as wanting to be on the ground for the re-introduction of Zod and the Zone villains, makes me think I will be in for the first arc. The question is what I do after. And does this make me more worried about how Kara will be treated by Soule. Read Full Review

    GoCollect - @UrbanRemnant Nov 13, 2013

    The bottom line is that I picked up both issues of "Superman Wonder Woman" because I've enjoyed Charles Soule's run on "Swamp Thing." Perhaps this book presents an opportunity to challenge readers on what it truly means to be complete equals. I will continue to read it with the hope that the story will improve, will provide more action and will delve deeper into their unspoken tensions; but I'm not sure that it can. The unimaginable stands in the way. Read Full Review

    I still claim to hate Superman and yet I keep buying his comics... Yet another great one. I was living vicariously through Superman's return punch to Apollo. Man, did that feel good. Once again, what drew me back to this series was the art/coloring. Fantastic. I don't want to be that guy, but Wonder Woman is gorgeous. And I'm not saying in the hyper-sexualized nature that comics and other media tend to go. Just her eyes and lips that seem so real... now that I'm done being a creeper, seriously go get this issue.

    Solid art and good writing (though far from Sule's best) make this an entertaining book, but decompressed storytelling keep it from its true potential.
