    Brian Azzarello and Goran Sudzuka deliver another excellent entry withWonder Woman #24. Diana is clearly the star here, and the writer clearly understands the character well, but Azzarello does not skimp on further developing the rather extensive cast of secondary characters. Here's hoping he remains on the title for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    Other then that this is a well made issue that makes you want to read more about what happens next and to maybe pick up the last few issues or graphic novels that are out in stores. Heres hoping that this like the last two story arcs are a great read. Read Full Review

    I imagine that one day Diana will get the opportunity fight for her sisters the way she tried to fight for their brothers in Hephaestus's forge. I look forward to reading that story. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Oct 17, 2013

    Solid issue that really takes advantage of the kind of person Wonder Woman is. Great balance between her real life and life as a God, something that gives this story depth beyond the myths. Though once again both will clash as Diana's choice to avoid her responsibilities as God of War have now forced the others to consider an Olympus without one. Not only this but having evoked the wrath of War's sister who wants her head. So much potential for this new story and we'll see if Diana can really turn away from her new path. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 17, 2013

    With so many people arrayed against her, Wonder Woman's quandary reminds me (in all the right ways) of Neil Gaiman's 'Sandman', with plans and portents and agendas galore, all of which are swirling about our main character. Wonder Woman herself is well-defined, and her new status as God of War opens up all sorts of story-telling possibilities for the character, befitting her status as the quintessential bad@$$ hero and foremost female superhuman of modern comics. Wonder Woman #24 does a little housekeeping, a little posturing and a lot of maneuvering, but doesn't come across as talky or boring, earning an impressive 4 out of 5 stars overall. Here's hoping the book stays in Azzarello's hands for a good long time, as it seems he's still got gas in the metaphorical tank... Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Oct 19, 2013

    The appeal of this series remains subtle, especially given the flatness of its protagonist, but there's a lot of interest to be mined from Azzarello's subtlest work. Read Full Review

    ScienceFiction.com - Jason Motes Oct 20, 2013

    There's not much in terms of action in this issue, but the dialogue reveals some really important things about both the characters themselves and what may possibly be lying ahead. This issue is actually a great example of the elements of this book I like! (I have issues with other elements, but those are mostly absent here.) Solid issue! Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Oscar Russell Oct 17, 2013

    The book is bound to start moving quickly again, now that we have been pointed in the direction will be moving. So if you are a fan of lots of dialogue, pretty good art and a build up story then this is the issue for you. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 17, 2013

    Wonder Woman #24 was an average issue.  It seemed like a filler issue preparing for greater things down the line.  Wonder Woman spends most of the issue on the sidelines which is a pity.  If you like gods bickering with each other and decent art, you may enjoy this issue.  I will wait and hope for better next month.

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran Oct 17, 2013

    While I've enjoyed the mythology Brian Azzarello has been creating since the beginning, Issue #24 still suffers as a title that sidelines it's main character. Even more frustrating is Azzarello's pacing. There is setting up the pieces and then there is flat out filler. And, to be honest, I'm already living in a world with tedious government bickering, I don't need it in my Wonder Woman comic. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 19, 2013

    Last issue was the big finale of the First Born story, so this issue is mostly aftermath and set up for the next story. We find out where several characters are, get some hints as to where the story is headed and deal with the aftermath of last issue's big fight. It's pretty standard stuff, and is told with Azzarello's usual skill. Nothing too spectacular or exciting happens this issue, but Wonder Woman is as strong as ever. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Noelle Webster Oct 22, 2013

    Despite some nice character moments and promising plot lines, the issue ultimately doesn't accomplish much. Much of it is due to the nature of a set up issue, but the issue is scattered and would have benefited from more focus. I look forward to seeing some of these plots unfold, and hope to see some more action next issue. Read Full Review
