After the events of Trial of the Amazons, Artemis is on the run from her sisters for her sins. She may say it was all in the name of peace, but not even Wonder Woman believes a word she says. Now the former member of the Bana-Mighdall is wanted by not only her people, but all Amazon tribes! Is there a future for a warrior who has destroyed her past? Find out as Artemis travels the world searching for answers and a new path forward. She'll need all the help she can get, and it may come from the unlikeliest of sources...the Gods!

    With a stellar script and brilliant visuals, Artemis: Wanted showcases the kind of great storytelling that the larger Wonder Woman family deserves, and will hopefully continue to receive. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Clint Theron Jul 19, 2022

    A fantastic and essential follow-up to Trial of the Amazons, this one-shot explores three very popular yet strangely underutilized Wonderverse characters: Artemis, Donna Troy, and Cassandra Sandsmark. Fans have been begging for more interaction between these characters, and Vita Ayala delivers that and more. Read Full Review

    The characters postures and body language are also drawn wonderfully, conveying the characters moods at any given moment.  This is most evident with Artemis, who seems to slump more, at least during the early parts of the book, but when she goes into combat, her confidence seems to return, and she seems to tower over everyone else.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 20, 2022

    Artemis: Wanted #1 is an excellent example of the power a one-shot comic book has. We get a complete story that resolves the story of Hippolyta's murder in a way that adds a lot more to what is going on in the Wonder Woman franchise. In the process, Artemis character is treated with genuine care with what we learn about her elevates her status even higher when all is said and done. This is definitely a must-have for fans of the Wonder Woman franchise. Read Full Review

    It does feel a little pat at times, with several pages devoted to a character explaining to other characters why they're such great heroes, but as a whole it's a solid next installment in the Amazon saga. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 28, 2022

    While I don't think you needed an over-sized issue to tell this tale, the comic does what it sets out to (with quite a bit of exposition in the middle with a literally deus ex machina spelling things out for us including suggesting the roles for all three woman going forward amongst the Amazons) and returns not just Artemis to the Amazons but Freya and her daughter as well.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jul 20, 2022

    Artemis: Wanted #1 is a mostly disappointing postscript to "Trial of the Amazons. The idea of Artemis being Hippolyta's killer was intriguing until Artemis' motives are revealed in this issue. When they are it is not only lackluster and contrived, but it puts a black mark on the already shaky "Trial of the Amazons. Quite honestly, you don't really need to read this comic. It's a bit of a mess. You might even be happier not knowing why Artemis killed Hippolyta, knowing only highlights the petty squabbles between the tribes of Amazons. Read Full Review
