    This book is SO freakin' awesome, and those of us that have become Wonder Woman fans, in some cases for the first time since her reinvention in The New 52, are really going to lose out when this creative team ends its run with issue #35. If DC had any degree of intelligence when it comes to Wonder Woman, they'd give Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang a blank check and beg them to stay for a minimum of 100 issues. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #33 is everything that fans have been waiting for.  It's so sad to see such a great creative team go, but if this issue is any indication, they will leave on a run defining high note.  The story and art are top notch which is what I expect every month from these two.  I don't want it to end, but I can't wait for next month.  Highly recommended.

    Someday, we won't have to have any more conversations about what to do about Wonder Woman. Why she's not better respected, or a bigger seller, or a bigger “star.” Her blockbuster movie will come, eventually. Female creators will get their turn to tell their stories through her, eventually. The world will catch up eventually, so until then we can just be inspired by the way Wonder Woman unites us, even through conflict. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Dan Gehen Jul 24, 2014

    From the start of this run, Brian Azzarello has weaved an intricate narrative with more twists and turns than a labyrinth. Impressively, after more than thirty issues of a continuous story, he manages to keep the twists coming without them ever being stale. Superhero comics come with the built-in expectation that the hero will make it out of a predicament no matter how dire. However, Azzarello's Wonder Woman has been anything but a typical superhero comic. The stakes are real. Death is real. By flipping the readers' expectations on its head in the final pages, Azzarello has everyone hooked for the saga's finale. Read Full Review

    The plot is simple, but there are some rich layers beneath the surface, and you can't beat Chiang's art. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman is fast becoming my most anticipated and most dreaded New 52 title. Each month brings us closer to the grand finale of Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang's saga. It's tough to picture a New 52 without these two chronicling the adventures of Diana Prince. But at least issue #33 suggests that they'll be giving her the sendoff she deserves. Read Full Review

    But for those mature enough, it's a dark, powerful story. But it's definitely time to wrap it up and move on to other matters. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #33 marks the beginning of the end as writer Brian Azzarello and artist Cliff Chiang kick off the astonishing finale of their epic run. This issue again was more of a build up, but it certainly leaves you wanting to see what happens next. This is a family that must band together to save each other from certain doom, figure out who can pick them up from the ashes, and that person will have to be trusted to rule with decency and justice. That is why we should see this series through to the very end. Read Full Review

    This is certainly going to be an arc that goes down in Wonder Woman history. Read Full Review

    WONDER WOMAN's finale is setting to be the best part of the story so far. Each issue raises the stakes and manages to build up the idea of a final confrontation between Wonder Woman and the Firstborn to incredible degrees. Here's hoping we actually get to see it. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 26, 2014

    It's a fast-paced story, with multiple, fascinating layers, all leading up to what's going to be one heck of a final battle. Yes, it looks like the bad guys might win at this point, but that's how these stories work. Watching the good guys regroup and fight back (hopefully with a revived Orion) is going to be a blast!

    Word Of The Nerd - Hollie Cumberland Aug 4, 2014

    With all of the confusion, and the changes brought about by the New 52 reboot, it's refreshing to continually see a Diana we all know and love, regardless of her new back story, and her new title, she upholds her continuously established title of Princess/Queen of the Amazons until the very end. The artwork is truly exceptional in showing the utter heartbreak and devastation Diana must have felt in her last few moments, only to re-emerge as the fearless warrior the Amazons, and the God of war for that matter, have always been portrayed to be. It's a solid instalment to the already established series, and I, for one, cannot wait for next month's issue to see how she gets herself out of this one. Read Full Review

    I'll be genuinely sad to see the Azzarello and Chiang era of "Wonder Woman" come to an end; it's been a constant source of good, strong entertainment since the start of the "New 52" reboot. In the meantime, though, there's nothing to stop me from enjoying what we've got. Here's to the final two chapters. Read Full Review
