    Wonder Girl #1 is fun but ultimately forgettable. I'm unsure of the reasoning behind choosing Cassie as a candidate for a one-shot this month, but if nothing else it serves as a brief foray into Wonder Girl's life away from Titan Tower. Read Full Review

    At the end of the day, I can't help but feel like we got a little shortchanged when it comes to Wonder Girl herself, and that it was Solstice who got the real spotlight. On the plus side, at least it does make me more interested in seeing the character appear as a superhero in "Teen Titans" down the line. I don't think "Wonder Girl" ever quite hits its level of potential, but it's a nice extra chapter of "Teen Titans" if nothing else. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Jan 17, 2011

    The threat that develops this issue is a rather generic one and the surprise regarding new friend Kiran is pretty predictable. But that's fine, I'm really reading this issue to see how Cassie has grown and she's done so to the extent that she gains an ally, participates in a team-up and gets over herself enough to reach out to her mom. A bit too formulaic to be a classic, but this issue provides an intriguing look at an unlikely character who has really grown into her own. The whole product fits the mood of Nicola Scott's celebratory cover, showing Wonder Girl in glorious flight. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Jan 12, 2011

    I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was hoping for more. Krul has given us so much in the past, but this one felt phoned-in, low-stakes and contrived. I see no reason for anyone to buy this issue, because even the reconciliation at the end didn't seem to be that meaningful. Read Full Review
