    Is it packed with powerful messages and plot depth? No. But it's packed with action, a lot of beautiful illustrations, and the end may stir up some surprising emotions. What matters is that it feelslike the series finale and that's exactly what we get. Read Full Review

    While not perfect, this absolutely functioned well as a finale and tied up The New 52 run nicely, something not all books have been able to accomplish this month. I can say in all honesty that Meredith Finch neatly wrapped up this era of Wonder Woman and the door is now wide open for Greg Rucka to make a fresh start. Read Full Review

    In the end, "Wonder Woman" #52 is a storytelling success. Diana wins the battle, but she loses the war. Although Diana has achieved balance within herself, Finch and Mendonca's conclusion leaves Diana with a profound sense of loss. As with all conflicts of love and war, the fine line between victory and defeat is a blur. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman ends her run in the New 52 with one hell of a dud here.  What we have is a real put the toys back in their toy box as best you can situation and because of this it just slaps readers in the face who have been reading this run from the beginning.  We've been getting that a lot lately with Rebirth looming ahead, but here it just angered me.  We do get some excellent art though out of the entire team and really that's the only reason to get this book.

    There's nothing to sink your teeth into with this book and that's how it's been for some time. The Finches were heralded as a saving grace for Aphrodite's agent, but their time ends with a whimper. Read Full Review

    i like the fact that it actually had a consequential ending. it really made the whole thing seem more worth it. . . . . . . well . . . ALMOST worth it? . . . . at least they finally got rid of those annoying Zola and Zeke characters! . . . . . it gets a bump in score for that alone!

    Diana confronts Hecate, Hera shows her true intentions, Zeus is back, not so happy ending. Now it seems like nothing we read about Wonder Woman from 2011 to 2016 matters. The whole purpose of this issue was nothing more than putting the toys back in the box in time for the reboot of the character, and it did it very poorly by under performing in terms of anticlimactic ending, plot holes, questionable portrayal of the hero and mediocre story. This issue also represents the end of a run that should only live in infamy for what seemed to be a continuous intent to undo everything achieved by Azz and Chiang story that was nothing short of a modern greek epic

    Not perfect by any means but the art was beautiful and as erratic as Meredith Finch's writing has been, I can tell she put in a lot of effort in this final issue. The ending is a bit depressing but it drives home what makes Diana grounded as a god and part of humanity. Wonder Woman is a Rebirth title I am very excited for.
