    Comicsverse - Aaron Berke Nov 24, 2016

    Overall, WONDER WOMAN #11 provides a fantastic conclusion to "The Lies" storyline. With most questions answered, the opportunity is ripe to take the series in a new direction, in which Diana and Steve are likely toseek out the perpetrators who have deceived her. Rucka and Sharp have created one of the most distinctive and quality books in the Rebirth era. They have managed to redefine Wonder Woman, while reminding readers of the qualities that we loved about her in the first place. Wonder Woman may never be able to return to Themyscira. But for us, this truly is like coming home again. Read Full Review

    For those that have been underwhelmed with the modern story, this is the issue where the creative team firmly asserted themselves in stating this is a premiere DC title no matter the time period. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joe Ruggirello Nov 24, 2016

    This may be the conclusion to the "The Lies" storyline, but it's clear the mystery is far from being resolved. There's no great revelation here, and we're left with even more questions than answers, but when Greg Rucka's in charge that's always a good thing. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Nov 23, 2016

    A dark, sinister end to the first story arc of a rejuvenated Wonder Woman title, issue #11 has reached deeply into Dianas core and ripped out something she didnt know she was already missing. Rucka, Sharp, and Martin have given us the complete inverse of her golden moment in issue #9, and with that upending, I can feel exactly what Diana feels, measure her loss in precise calculation, and yearn for her return to hope, as we start feeling our way back to ours.

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Nov 23, 2016

    If Wonder Woman isn’t already on your pull list, I’m not quite sure why. The character is being written possibly better than she’s ever been, and Rucka is exceptional at keeping up the intrigue in his plots. Even as this arc ends, the stakes feel huge for what’s to come. Readers might be put off by the dubious nature of the truth in this story but Rucka is making sure it’s clear that something much larger than what we’ve seen is at work. Liam Sharp and Laura Martin continue to be a dynamic duo and Sharp in particular will be missed as Matthew Clark takes over the next odd-numbered issue of this series. Rucka’s take on Diana is refreshing and fun, even if the future is a little bit uncertain for her, that’s a good place to be. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Nov 28, 2016

    Wonder Woman #11 is a nice conclusion to the opening salvo of Rucka's story, one that ticks off all the boxes. Emotion, character development and artwork are all really stellar here. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Nov 25, 2016

    Towards the end of the issue, Diana is shown something from her Lasso that doesn't make much sense to the audience – but seems to affect her greatly. It makes us wonder if this is something to do with the Rebirth aspect of the entire DC continuity this far. Especially given that we haven't been given much explanation on that side of things. Overall, this issue sets up even more questions that definitely need answering sooner rather than later. Our only worry is that the writers will drag this plot out as long as possible instead of providing us with a solution. Having said that, it's an issue that really fosters that sense of curiosity and confusion that Diana has about her “home”. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Nov 23, 2016

    This is a solid issue. The story is brought to a much more intriguing place with an almost desperate tone because of Diana's state of mind right now. The art is great throughout especially when compared to the art of “Year One” in order to see the differences Diana and Steve are talking about. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 23, 2016

    While this is supposed to be the conclusion of "The Lies", it really comes off as the start because we don't really get any answers that we've been dying to get here and everything that we've read over the last six issues just seems to be setup for what's to come.  The art though was amazing as always, I'm just feeling like I did at the beginning of this series, where I didn't know what the hell was going on....... and I really thought I was past that.

    Very confusing, very argument inducing issue that makes me want to just find out the solution to the question presented. Greg Rucka has been doing a good job and continues with this mind altering issue.

    This title, and this storyline, keep getting better and better. For a time I favoured the Year One story to that going on in the odd issues, but this issue is suspenseful and thrilling...Rucka and Sharp kick ass here! And, is the fact that Steve was prepared a burger and fries to eat in Themyscira foreshadowing of the fact it's all unreal? I think so!

    Comic Book Review (6.5/10) "Okay," Wonder Woman #11 "The Lies: Conclusion," Writer: Greg Rucka, Penciller: Liam Sharp, Plot: Wonder Woman aka Diana Prince and Colonel Steve Trevor have landed on Themyscira...or have they? Things look different than the way Diana and Steve remembers from before and Queen Hippolyta is still alive! And what organization is trying to undermine Wonder Woman by using Sasha Bordeaux? When I read that this was the conclusion to the "Lies" story arc I was expecting the story to wrap up, but after reading this issue I can confirm for you that I am more confused than how I was in Rebirth #1! Things don't wrap up in this story and it seems new confusing questions are introduced into the Wonder Woman storyline to answer previously raised questions. I'm not a big fan of answering questions with questions and this issue also takes the focus away from Themyscira to a robotic Sasha Bordeaux. Now if you read OMAC Project and remember that she was a cyborg there, this shouldn't confuse you too much, but new readers maybe confused by these developments as no explanation is given. Sharp once again delivers the goods in this issue, and his detailed depictions of Themysciran architecture made me wish for a fantasy comic that was also illustrated by him. He has a real knack for composition and scale and has a talent to draw things in an epic scale using landscapes. He would be perfect for a Lord of the Rings comic adaptation, although that may take months to complete.

    What a complete nothing arc. This issue ends the same way the Rebirth issue ended. What was even the damn point? This should not be a monthly comic. This is absolutely not worth it. Rucka needs to stop with his perfect Wondie nonsense and start with writing a solid story that isn't decompressed to hell and back.
