    Comic Spectrum - Gilad Levin Dec 12, 2013

    This issue shouldn't exist. It's not fair that it exists. Superman/Wonder Woman #3 shouldn't be part of an ongoing series. It should be the beginning of a complete standalone graphic novel. The story is so good that splitting it into separate monthly comics ruins it. I can hardly wait for next months issue! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 15, 2013

    Superman/Wonder Woman #3 is great.  This book has action, romance, humour and great art to boot.  Charles Soule and Tony S. Daniel have given us an early Christmas present and I'd like to thank them for that. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Jake Tanner Dec 12, 2013

    This is a series that more people should be paying attention to. As I said before, it might be titled Superman/Wonder Woman, but their relationship feels like a secondary plotline as opposed to the book focusing most of the attention on the romance like I thought it would. Charles Soule and his amazing creative team showed me that my faith in them was well placed though! In a world of superheroes and gods, they've managed to make it seem more real than a lot of comics I've read because of their attention to detail when it comes to the great character moments happening everywhere. For that, I give this issue: Read Full Review

    Superman Wonder Woman is in my opinion one of the better DC books going right now. It balances romance with superhero drama very well. Charles Soule and Tony Daniel are doing fantastic work. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Dec 11, 2013

    Superman/Wonder Woman #3 was a nice step up in quality. The relationships between everyone, the dialogue, and the emotional aspects were strong and helped make the characters more real in a way. If this is where things start improving, then I'm excited to see where the title will continue on from here. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Dec 11, 2013

    I wasn't sure what to expect out of a comic like this, but so far it has avoided all manner of cliche when it comes to the actual relationship. Soule has treated it with maturity and intelligence while also delivering some hardcore fights that remind you that even though they are lovers, they are also heroes. Read Full Review

    I'm a big Wonder Woman fan, so like most, I went into this book with a little hesitation, but it's vastly surpassed my expectations! Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Dec 11, 2013

    Another solid issue in what is clearly a touchstone for the entire DCU for the year to come, Superman/Wonder Woman #3 may fall short on action overall, but makes up the difference in honest conversation and reflection. Clearly a bridging issue to lead into a larger (likely bloody) confrontation on two fronts, this is a chapter that may make or break it for readers going forward. Im on board for the long haul. Are you? Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Dec 11, 2013

    Soule successfully moves the overall narrative forward while also throwing plenty of variables into the mix. There's a lot of buildup in this issue and you can definitely feel all of the factors circulating. The cliffhanger's something we've all seen coming a mile away, but everything else has me incredibly anxious to witness how it'll all play out. With Daniel on-board, we know it'll be a good looking ride, too. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - David Staniusz Dec 12, 2013

    The issue is a relative light hearted one, which is not a bad thing, though we will have to wait until 2014 to see more of what Zod will be up to. Issue 3 of Superman Wonder Woman is a very fun issue that brings out some really strong character moments as well utilizes guest stars to advance the plot! Read Full Review

    Hero Nuggets - Joe 'Cannoli' Natoli Dec 13, 2013

    'Superman/Wonder Woman #3" is a really great read. You would expect a title devoted to the relationship of two characters to be more romantic and cheesey, but Soule manages to find a really nice balance between action and romance. More importantly, the dialogue feels characteristically human, unlike most romantic comedies or action movies you would watch. The book loses a Nugget only because they don't explain the necessary backstory for new readers, like I had to. Something that is only really 2 issues deep shouldn't need explanations since more than likely new readers are jumping in, but this one requires some previous knowledge to fully enjoy.

    I'm staying put on "Superman | Wonder Woman." I'm curious to know what direction this story arc will go. Issue #3 was fun. There was a lot of action. It seems to be building up to even more conflict upon the arrival of Zod's love interest: Faora. We shall see in the next issue. Read Full Review

    If youre not already reading Superman/Wonder Woman, start immediately because its only three issues in. Its very easy to just jump right into and you wont regret it. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Dec 17, 2013

    While Soule's execution is relatively faultless, the material, especially with his two leads, doesn't quite have that zing you're looking for just yet. Read Full Review

    Comics Refueled - superiorchris Dec 11, 2013

    This is still the Superman book that I prefer reading. It is also the Wonder Woman I prefer reading. Soule is writing a strong beginning to the series and this issue is great as well. The relationship dynamic keeps you in your seat but the art team is what brings it all together visually. This is the team up that Batman/Superman should be jealous of. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Dec 13, 2013

    Everything about this issue brought me back to the days of "Infinite Crisis," which are some of my favorite 21st century DC times. The heroes were working together (even though, they sort of aren't), there was a real heart at the core of the issue, and familiar characters and ideas were handled in new and interesting ways. I honestly can't believe how much I enjoyed this issue, and that is a testament to what Soule is doing at DC. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Dec 11, 2013

    With a subplot about the perfect Christmas present for Superman -- which comes to a slightly predictable but still heartfelt conclusion -- "Superman/Wonder Woman" #3 even gets in a little extra bonus for tying into the time of year that it was published. When you look at the main cast of the book and the characters that it pulls in, "Superman/Wonder Woman" almost feels like a member of the "Justice League" family rather than an offshoot of either Superman or Wonder Woman... but without feeling the need to tie into "Forever Evil." For those who aren't interested in the crossover, this might be the substitute title they've been looking for, instead. It has a strong grasp of the DC Universe, it plays with some of the major icons, and it's well crafted. That's a winner in my book. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Jan 6, 2014

    In many ways Superman/Wonder Woman #3 sets up the next set of challenges for Superman and Wonder Woman. However, it doesn't do so in a way that flows evenly. It's like a garden hose with a few holes in it. But this issue succeeded in establishing the dynamics between Superman and Wonder Woman. This is not like their respective relationships with Lois Lane and Steve Trevor. This is a relationship that is maturing. It's not an ideal romance and would probably make a boring romantic comedy. However, that's exactly why it's so compelling and why the relationship between Superman and Wonder Woman has the kind of depth that makes it stronger than any relationship that doesn't involve vampires.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 14, 2013

    Still, not even a helpful appearance by Batman can save this comic. The central relationship is just so bland and uninteresting. And if DC can't even get that right (which they haven't, and probably never will), then what's the point of reading this comic? Stick to Brian Azzarello's Wonder Woman. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Dec 17, 2013

    So there is a lot of stuff in this issue that I simply have a hard time with. The odd characterization of the main two characters is the biggest. But the lack of investigation on Zod's appearance on Earth also was glossed over. I will again say, I am loving the art of Tony Daniel here. Beautiful. Read Full Review
