A daring new direction begins with the arrival of a brand-new villain! But while he may be new to us, hes not new to the world he seeks to tame. And speaking of villains, Donna Troys quest to destroy Wonder Woman ratchets up another gear (if thats even possible!), while the games of the Gods bring dark portents to the ultimate Amazon!

    Word Of The Nerd - Hollie Cumberland Jun 18, 2015

    The team has taken a risky move inventing a new costume, and even though I really like it, some people probably won't. It will be interesting to see just how the fans react, but regardless of their reactions, I found this to be a highly entertaining issue. It's not as fast paced as the past few issues have been, but it makes a huge impact, and that's all that really matters. The main focus of this issue is really the impact Diana's journey has had on her. I think it's a huge turning point for the character, and I am anxious to see the effect such a huge decision has on the rest of the series. Read Full Review

    This is one of the best issues of Wonder Woman from this creative team, and really dives deep into what makes Diana such an amazing character. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Tyler Sewell Jun 18, 2015

    Finch gives us a great start to the new arc. It's a fresh look and an intriguing premise that incorporates some of the older characters we haven't seen in Wonder Woman's title series since before the Finches took over. While I wasn't a big fan of the last volume, this one is looking much more promising. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Jun 17, 2015

    Hopefully this turn of events for Wonder Woman is proof that the creative team has calmed down a bit from the first story arc. Instead of throwing what seemed like anything and everything into the story, the outlook here is a bit more subdued here, while moving forward what seems like an engaging story at a pace which makes sense. The costume change for Diana might get the spotlight here (although it was handled well in story) but really this is a chance for a quick change of direction for the creative team and it seems to be well worth it here as there is positive momentum in this series again.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 30, 2015

    On top of being one of the finest looking comics in the DC Comics roster, this story begins fresh by welcoming new readers in by playing a little catch up, but not the awful forced kind, instead Meredith Finch offers us a sentimental visit between Wonder Woman and past characters, while giving us a whole new interesting story to look forward to and that's not even mentioning the new garb Diana's sporting.  Definitely a fun time to be a Wonder Woman fan and I can't wait to check out more.

    IGN - Levi Hunt Jun 18, 2015

    Unfortunately, there are still some panels that are either corny or cringe worthy from both Finchs here, but it's unrealistic to expect everything to be fixed in an issue. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #41 is a solidstart for an era that doesn't feel wholly detached from its own established history. And even though I felt there were some hiccups with the script I'm still eager to see where the creative team takes this yarn next. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Marcus Orchard Jun 18, 2015

    Meredith and David Finch have certainly improved over the last two months. The story is much more focused while the art is starting to go in the right direction. Some of the dialogue is still weak, but for the most part, this is definitely an improvement over the previous arc. Hopefully the series continues to improve from here. Read Full Review

    SPOILER-FREE REVIEW. First, let me just start by saying that I dropped Wonder Woman after Azzarello and Chiang left the series. I didn't even give Meredith a chance, as I thought it wouldn't be possible to get that kind of great quality that Azzarello/Chiang produced issue after issue. Well, by chance I picked this issue up from my LCS after seeing that sweet Joker variant and I got to say, I WISH I HAD STUCK WITH THE SERIES. From the dialogue, to the costume reveal, to the amazing artwork, dare I say that the husband/wife duo is actually doing a pretty good job taking over the reigns from Azzarello/Chiang? I think so. Everything just feels... right, just as it did with Azzarello/Chiang. Sure, things have change noticeably, but I like how Meredith is taking the series to a new height and I can't wait to get my hands on the next issue.

    Some magic that made Wonder Woman a must-read was lost after Chiang and Azzarello bowed out but in issue 41, I sense a return to some of what made this title one of the best of the now defunct New 52. Perhaps it's the guest appearances from Zola and Zeke (who potentially could be a very interesting character being that he's a son of Zeus). But overall, I appreciate the gesture that Diana wants to grow into a queen/god and ditch her former self who tends to be a bit too trusting at times. With a new mysterious villain, I want to see how this story unfolds. I'm optimistic and hope that the growing pains with the Finches are mostly over.
