    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 13, 2021

    The composition of the 100-page celebration has been carefully thought out. The first two stories establish new directions for ongoing titles. At the same time, the rest of the book moves through Wonder Womans history in chronological order from the Golden Age to the Silver Age to the Copper Age and beyond. Not every story is totally brilliant, but the anthology works remarkably well as a whole, giving the reader a somewhat breathtaking look at the history of one of comics greatest heroes.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Oct 6, 2021

    You can't go wrong with the Wonder Woman 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular. It's wonderful in every way. It's an example of comics being fun and providing sheer unadulterated joy on every page. Wonder Woman is the iconic female super-hero, and she will always be important. Even if you don't necessarily like her or her stories, one should at least understand her significance and respect that. Diana easily has another 80 years in her, but this issue is a beautiful celebration of her first 80 years. Need another 6/5 rating for this issue. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Oct 5, 2021

    Fans, especially with times being as tough as they are, a $9.99 price tag is close to three comics instead of this one. Nonetheless, without a doubt, WONDER WOMAN fans need to grab this issue. Furthermore, fans who've been interested in dipping their toe into the character will find this issue extremely informative as well as inviting causing this reviewer to recommend the issue entirely even with the hefty cover price.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 11, 2021

    Wonder Woman 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular is a very good celebration of the enduring legacy of one of DC Comics most iconic characters. There are a few stories that are a miss but largely the collection of stories told were fun in their own way. DC Comics certainly could tap any of these creative teams to tell even more Wonder Woman stories in the future. If you are a Wonder Woman this is definitely a must buy. Read Full Review

    The only other 80th Anniversary special I read the GL one and I'd say that was stronger because the different characters meant you got more variety but this wasn't bad. Just making a comparison.

    "In Memoriam" - Pretty good, nice Steve and Etta story. It remains a waste how little WW stuff was actually used in Death Metal but nice to Cloonan and Conrad making some use out of the post-stuff.

    "Dreamers" - More of a prologue for the upcoming Nubia mini but I've been liking Ganucheau's art on this YD series so it wasn't bad.

    "Fresh Catch" - Amusing, though I imagine those more into GA Wonder Woman than me will get more of a kick out of it.

    "Dear Diana" - Liked this quite a bit. Hal Jordan's my other fa more

    I enjoyed it. It's so weird how Steve Orlando and tom King could actually write some good stories, but their other stories are a hit or miss.

    This had some ups and downs, but I really don't know why I still bother with these 80th anniversary anthologies. They're never so good that they're worth their insane prices, and they never really get me hyped on the character they're centered around. They must sell because DC's made like 80 of them.

    Other than Stephanie Phillips' story, which is good, most are ranging from mediocre to bad with Willow Wilson's and Jordie Bellaire's being as bad as usual, as in very bad.
