When Pariah and his forces of the Great Darkness laid waste to the most powerful superheroes of all time, all hope was lost...until now. To power his weapons of war, Pariah has captured each member of the Justice League and trapped them on worlds suited to their every dream and desire...while the planets themselves slowly eat away at their respective inhabitants. As Wonder Woman begins a new chapter in her life, Pariah has uprooted her to a reality he controls-how will the Amazon Princess adapt? Also, Dan Watters and Brandon Peterson combine forces for a noir tale featuring Martian Manhunter!

    This is the third of the Dark Crisis tie-ins focusing on the heroes who vanished in the wake of Pariah's attack, and its the first one that really doesn't hit on all cylinders. Read Full Review

    A good story and an even better backup make this installment to the 'Worlds Without a Justice League' one to watch out for. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Clint Theron Sep 13, 2022

    This one-shot is by no means essential reading, but if you're a fan of Elseworlds-style stories with beautiful artwork, give this one a shot. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 14, 2022

    This sort of thing is far from new. Heroes have been thrust into paradise to throw them off their quests since Odysseus set foot on the Island of the Lotus-Eaters...and possibly on back to the dawn of storytelling itself. The distinctive visions of utopia offered up to the heroes will continue to be interesting as Green Arrow is offered his heaven next to Black Canary next month. To truly make for a novel exploration into this sort of thing, the stories would really need more space to sprawl out. An issue like this makes the exercise seem too rushed. Read Full Review

    This is worth grabbing for Martian Manhunter fans but Wonder Woman fans will likely find more enjoyment in her standalone title. Read Full Review

    This issue is a mixed bag, but at the end of the day, it's a fun experiment and if you've been following along with Dark Crisis, this is a worthy addition to it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 13, 2022

    Dark Crisis: World's Without a Justice League: Wonder Woman #1 reads like Tini Howard was given an assignment and decided to throw that out the window and do whatever the hell she wanted. It does NOTHING for the Dark Crisis Event which makes you wonder why it even exists (insert cash register sound here!) The issue looks great, but that alone is not worth the price of admission, though it did bump up my score. Read Full Review
