    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo May 24, 2015

    Larry Hama gives us a comic book two-parter that finds the fun in comics again. Despite the darkness of this tale and what feels like actual stakes with actual consequences, this is just a great afternoon read with a satisfyingly complete story that you can treat as part of the Convergence or just another Elseworld. I especially enjoyed the depiction of the vampire Joker and the full-circle plotting that provides Wonder Woman with a complete physical and emotional journey. It goes to show once again that we don't need a 12-part saga with 7 crossovers to tell an impactful tale about our favorite heroes and their mighty feats. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Apr 28, 2015

    Do you remember when…? Many of the stories tying into Convergence this week bring up that question. We are, after all, dealing with stories rooted in the DCU of thirty years ago, in the time just before the Crisis remade the face of superhero comics forever. Many of the issues this week suffer from that problem, as they must spend an inordinate amount of time setting the stage, reminding us of the state of the world and the position of the characters at that crucial moment in history. However, Convergence: Wonder Woman #1 manages to tell an effective story in the midst of its exposition, even though we find the characters at a long-ago and, for many readers, long-forgotten juncture.

    Infinite Comix - Jamie Heron Apr 23, 2015

    Convergence: Wonder Woman #1 is in fact, the perfect setup; providing just the right amount of character development to set the stage for what comes later in the issue, while also building up to a bigger conflict in the second issue. Throughout, a vein of creepiness is mined to just the right degree, and it's exciting to see what will happen next month. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Mark William Pawziuk Apr 24, 2015

    Regardless of whether you're reading Convergence, Wonder Woman fans should check out this rare visit an almost forgotten piece of this character's history.What I appreciate most about this issue is that Hama understands Wonder Woman and delivers a story worthy of this character. I've been vocal in my disappointment with how Meredith and David Finch have handled her recently, so Convergence Wonder Woman is a refreshing return for fans of this character. Middleton's work on art is also commendable, and I'll be keeping an eye out for other projects by him. With event after event going on, it's nice to be able to pick up a tie-in like this that can be enjoyed on its own. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Oscar Maltby Apr 22, 2015

    Convergence: Wonder Woman #1is a book which represents exactly the right approach to the amazing Amazon. Larry Hama provides a confident and capable script with just the right amount of Silver Age fun, and Middleton's realistic and clean pencilling style is as equally adept at action sequences as it is dialogue. You'd be a fool to miss this one. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Apr 27, 2015

    Overall, this is one the better Convergence books. Current WW fans may disagree but this book shows how strong Diana is, her true power coming from her heart showing that even powerless, Princess Diana is still a Wonder Woman. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Heather Joy Apr 26, 2015

    Something of note is Wonder Woman's costume in this issue. The all white ensemble reminds me of another time Diana lost her powers , the time Diana Prince became a spy! Ah, the good old sixties. Anyway, we do get to see the original costume (or as I fondly refer to it as “wonderwear”) later in the issue when Diana needs to suit up and really kick some ass. Vampire Joker ass, to be exact. Don't ask me to explain, just read it and enjoy it as I did. I promise it'll make sense. Never before, and never again, will there be such an elegantly dark Wonder Woman title. This is mostly in thanks to Joshua Middleton's art (and colors too!) being so twistedly beautiful. Every panel is addicting, a little bit of horror in his style that gives Lara Hama's brilliant story it's edge. I absolutely cannot wait until the next issue, as this story can only sky rocket from here. Read Full Review

    With only one issue left to Hama and Middleton's interpretation of Wonder Woman, I've found myself in a position tolook forward to another installment ofthe outright lunacy that isConvergence.Like this Diana, I can't walk away from a good fight. Now, if one of you could explain it all to me… Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Tyler Sewell Apr 23, 2015

    Convergence: Wonder Woman is definitely a cross-over that you need to pick up. Whether you're a fan of the Steve and Diana couple (which I call Steana), Hama does a quality job at depicting the strong feminine hero, strength being something she's lacked lately in New 52. Diana has one of the coolest world matchups that we'll see from these crossovers and while of the issue is a bit slow, the second issue is set up to make up for that and more. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Apr 23, 2015

    "Convergence: Wonder Woman" #1 is definitely one of the stronger "Convergence" tie-ins to date. Hama tries to make his glimpse of Gotham City stand out, and Middleton's art can't help but charm. If you're on the fence on which "Convergence" tie-ins to give a whirl, this is definitely one of your better options. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 23, 2015

    This issue showcases Wonder Woman from one of the more unusual stages of her career, when she was a powerless secret agent in a slick white jumpsuit. Unfortunately, it does little to really capitalize on that era and its trappings. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 24, 2015

    This tie-in issue started off strong, but quickly devolved into something much less.  It was a boring read that did nothing to get me excited for next month's finale.  If Wonder Woman gets beat by her Red Rain villains, I won't be upset at all.  I wish I could say more, but I really didn't like what we got here.
