    Over the course of Futures End, numerous characters have been strained or distorted by the circumstances of this future. It's not entirely dystopian, but it's no hippie dreamscape either. Some have lost their way completely. Some have disappeared altogether for reasons not fully explained. That's why Wonder Woman's story in Wonder Woman: Futures End #1 is so refreshing. It shows a Wonder Woman that has been affected by this future, but not in a way that deviates from the core of her character. She's still a beacon of hope and love. And for a God of War, that's saying something. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman – Futures End #1 was solid aside from those few things pointed out above, though it obviously could have been better. Pick it up if you are reading Superman/Wonder Woman or if you have the money to pick up both since Futures End tie-ins don't require that much investment in them. Definitely pick it up if you like the interior art because that is the selling point. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 17, 2014

    Wonder Woman: Futures End #1 is an odd title.  It's more for fans of the regular run instead of a Futures End story.  As such, it's pretty good.  However, it's only the first part of a two part story which continues in this week's Superman/Wonder Woman and is not close to being a complete story on it's own.  Boy, this event is confusing.

    The Latest Pull - Cory Robinson Sep 20, 2014

    This issue falls around the "decent" category with an average storyline and art that rounds out to be average. This issue give you a lot of information and delves more into Wonder Woman becoming the Avatar of War and the responsibility that she must endure. Read Full Review

    This issue starts off strong but ultimately falters at what should have been the finish line. Read Full Review

    A war is coming, one the Goddess of War is going to have difficulty fighting, and I, for one, am going to be watching it every step of the way. Cannot wait for next month! Read Full Review

    Maybe I'm not one for the big events, but few and far between are the books that actually succeed at what I think FUTURES END is setting out to try and do. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Sep 22, 2014

    "Wonder Woman: Futures End" #1 doesn't fall down on the job, but it certainly stumbles a few times. The book looks great (even with multiple inkers), but this first half a two-part story (concluded in "Superman/Wonder Woman: Futures End" #1) doesn't have quite the punch that its setup promises.

    Another passable Futures End tie-in, one that feels like a weak copy of the storyline already running on the series. Read Full Review

    I really wish this issue wasn't a two-parter, since it doesn't need to be. This issue was really good until the end, when Superman shows up. Diana, of course, is five years in the future, and in the middle of a war. Even being the God of War now, she is still the same person, and she hasn't lost herself in bloodlust. We actually do get some good exposition about what's happening in this issue, and why this war is taking place. And while it might have seemed out of the ordinary in most situations (since she's explaining things to people who should know them already), it doesn't feel forced, thanks mainly to the reaction of one of the generals. Rags Morales' art is really good most of the time, but there are a few panels when Diana's mouth looks a bit "chimpish", for want of a better term; and a lazy eye in one panel. But for the most part, his art is fantastic and fits the story. But even still, it's hard to recommend because of the two-part aspect, and there are people who don't want to read both parts. This part is good, but if you're not into Wonder Woman, and specifically what Brian Azzarello did with her, then you can pass. I think it's worth the cover price. I could also understand if you don't want to buy this book because of the crossover aspect.

    Some really good elements in this one...

    Some cool character analysis of Diana doesn't save this issue from the general feeling of boredom and redundancy that surrounds it. While ordinarily, I would have recommended this to fans of the Brian Azzarello run who are curious about her future as the God of War, the story doesn't end here, but continues into Superman/Wonder Woman: Futures End, which is a very good reason not to recommend this to anyone.
