The secret of Superman and Wonder Woman's relationship is out and the world's reaction is mixed, but that's the least of the power couple's worries as Zod seeks to release Faora from the Phantom Zone!

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jan 15, 2014

    SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN is becoming one of my favorite DC titles. Charles Soule does a great job balancing the incredible feats the two heroes are capable of as well as showing us a more human side to them. Tony Daniel's art just keeps getting better and better. The back up story was a nice addition. It makes it feel as if we really got a bonus story in great issue. SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN is a comic fans of the superhero genre should not miss out on.

    Word Of The Nerd - Daniel Kalban Jan 17, 2014

    I want to say that first off that Daniel and Siqueira bring their A-game to every page this issue. Every image is done perfectly, from Zod's unleashing of the beasts to the world reacting to the news of the world's mightiest power couple. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Jan 16, 2014

    Superman Wonder Woman continues to be a great series. It has gone far and above the expectations of most who felt this would be nothing but fighting and cheap characterization. It's a deep story and just getting better each month. The artwork continues to outshine most other books. If you are a fan of DC and especially a fan of these characters, then this is a book you must read. Read Full Review

    IGN - Melissa Grey Jan 16, 2014

    Fans of Faora (which sounds like the name of a support group I'll probably soon be starting) will be pleased to see her make an appearance at the end of the issue, though Zod's characterization thus far remains a little off-kilter. But our interest is most certainly piqued, and it'll be fun to watch how his machinations play out in next month's issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 16, 2014

    Superman/Wonder Woman #4 continues the greatness of Soule and Daniel.  This is the comic to read if you want to know who Superman and Wonder Woman are as super people, super heroes and a super couple.  With Zod now fully in the mix and the World aware of their relationship, the stuff is about to hit the fan.

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jan 17, 2014

    It's a good series, and one imagines Wonder Woman has to be happy to finally break through that "no sex" barrier. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jan 15, 2014

    On the one hand, this comic may be seen as a bit of a cop-out, as Superman/Wonder Woman rarely has the two characters on the same page. But that said, it's clear that Charles Soule knows what makes these characters tick - and more importantly, what makes them likeable. Combined with some striking action sequences and the occasional surprise guest star, this is easily the best take on either character in the New 52. Talk about a match made in heaven.

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Jan 16, 2014

    There's also a little bonus story tacked on at the end, Clark Kent trying to use his connection in journalism to try and get down to the bottom of the mystery of who leaked his relationship, as well as the rest of the world reacting to the leak. Not only do we see Clark and Diana trying to handle things (separately), but also glimpses of Lex, and good friend Batman. It's quite a generous add on, that follows the regular story of Superman Wonder Woman, but it's light hearted enough that the choice to make it separate doesn't seem too odd. And while it seems like things are just about to get rough for the power couple, one little extra story end positively giving a reader hope in their strength, not only as heroes, but as two people who care immensely about each other.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jan 17, 2014

    You definitely get a sense that the issue falls just short of its potential, a result of odd storytelling choices and points that don't quite make it to completion. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jan 22, 2014

    But the relationship this book is built on still reads all wrong, like two people who don't understand each other at all, who are on opposite ends of the spectrum on some basic ideology, and who just seem uncomfortable with each other when they aren't embracing. I do think the Zod/Faora relationship at least allows some sort of foil to be set up, some sort of mirror for the main characters to look at and wonder. In some ways, while malevolent, I bet Zod and Faora have truer feeling for each other. Read Full Review

    Soule can do no wrong so far. Lots of personal exploration and character development that sets up the upcoming events. Daniel and Siqueira are a super team on pencils with a great job by their colorists. This issue had emotions and action with a well paced story. Pick this issue up for a great read! Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jan 16, 2014

    Superman/Wonder Woman #4 is a solid issue of the series that offers the readers two stories with it. While both are good and offer some solid characterization for various characters, one of them is much better than the other and the artwork is on the weak side this time around. If you have been reading the series up until this point, this one won't discourage you though and you should still find yourself enjoying it regardless. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Gilbert Rivera Jan 17, 2014

    All said Superman/Wonder Woman #4 is a good issue. The story, while a bit sporadic, does create an interesting threat for two of DC's most powerful heroes and the presentation is as beautiful as they are. Hopefully next issue can iron out the kinks when it brings The Deadlier Of The Species. Read Full Review

    Superman/Wonder Woman #4 is a good comic that's a bit better than people might expect. Recommended. Read Full Review

    So in all, this was a good issue. The dialogue is quite strong and the art is really appealing. It has its faults but in the larger scheme of things, those may be corrected. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 18, 2014

    Whatever Superman/Wonder Woman was supposed to be about, this is not it. Issue #4 is Superman vs. Zod, and a poorly written, uninteresting Zod at that. So unless Zod is your favorite, I couldn't possibly recommend this comic. Read Full Review
