    Doom Rocket - Molly Jane Kremer Oct 26, 2016

    The content itself can't help but be reminiscent of the excellent Wonder Woman #600 special from 2010, but still, anthology comics can be a hard sell, even with a star-studded roster like this one. Yet these seventy-five pages (yup, it's exactly seventy-five pages, the handful of ads at the back notwithstanding) are everything you could want out of a Wonder Woman comic. Uplifting and inspiring whilst kicking all the ass necessary to acquire peace and/or justice, this is a necessary addition to any Wonder Woman fan's collection, or just a good read for anyone who prefers elegantly and effortlessly good superhero comics.

    Altogether, this special is more a love letter to this character which has inspired millions and continues to every day. The writers all bring their love to the story. The artist more so as they see her in each, a different light. Overall, a fun tribute to an icon. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 26, 2016

    If you love Wonder Woman than this issue is your invitation to celebrate what makes her great by a huge creative team that loves her just as much (or more) than you.  It's an oversized issue stuffed with stories and art and I'm sure that everyone will find plenty to love.  This isn't a history lesson for newcomers, but a true celebration of one of the best and most important characters ever created.

    Comic Crusaders - Inhuman Mongo Nov 1, 2016

    The issue begins with a few darker tone stories but they never lose sight of Diana's hope and optimism. I particularly enjoyed the “Predators” by Brenden Fletcher & Karl Kerschl for its animated feel and the M. Scott/ R. Rossmo “One Side Alone” short was awesome as well. Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp's “Wonder Woman In Conversation” was perfection and provided on going readers a nice tie in with the “Lies” storyline. I could drive on and find highlights for each included story, but I would be robbing readers of the joy this issue brings. I feel the same about the art so I will only include a few pages. Just go out and buy this book! Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Nov 3, 2016

    The writing throughout is solid, and it's hard to pick out any one favourite story but fans will be pleased to see the legendary names of Jill Thompson and Gail Simone included. However, the interview she gives is arguably the most defining due to how personal it is. Anybody who's ever suffered from depression of felt isolated in a crowd should be able to relate to Wonder Woman when reading this. The art is slightly more of a mixed bag, with styles ranging from elegant to cartoonish… and one story, sadly, making Wonder Woman look rather mannish. Still, the brevity of each tale means that any slight dip is instantly followed by a high again. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Oct 31, 2016

    While the $7.99 price point is a bit much, you get a ton of really fun Wonder Woman content in this anniversary special, and I hope that DC does this with more of their characters in the future. Read Full Review
