    Wonder Woman and the Furies has definitely been one of the books I've enjoyed the most here since it gets into the meat of the main storyline running throughout the Flashpoint universe. While the main miniseries is all about Barry trying to fix things and understanding what's going on, all the other books have dropped us into this world to see it from their point of view with an altered history and a radically different present that makes for hard choices to be made. Wonder Woman comes across as a strong Amazon here who has to go the distance with the difficult choices and doesn't back down from it, even as it pains her. She's more blinded by things, a constant we've seen from other books as well, while Arthur tries to find a solution until he's pushed too far to do that anymore and just wants revenge himself. The dark path both of them walk isn't easy but they're continually pushed and pushing each other down it. Read Full Review

    Quietly engaging as ever, but the inappropriate art severely blunts the impact of the issue's subtleties. Read Full Review

    Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning are two of the most reliably entertaining writers working in comics, and this miniseries is no different. But sometimes the artwork just isnt up to the same standard as their stories. Read Full Review

    But there's no mystery here, because the reader can see from the start that this is all part of some ridiculous scheme by the bad guys in the room to bring about conflict. Sadly, as written here, Aquaman and Diana are too dim to see the plot. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 20, 2011

    Agustin Padilla's pencils are fine, here; they remind me a lot of early comics from J. Calafiore. I like the way he mixes older and newer popular styles together (a little bit of manga, a little bit of classic comic artists) to provide a clean, angular look. (The panel where Aquaman says, "I do not want this war," in particular, strikes me as a good portrait of the character.) It's easy to follow and pleasant; I'd certainly welcome him on other comics down the line. But hopefully? Something with a little more zing to it. We've had good comics from Abnett and Lanning in the past, but this is one of their less memorable efforts. Read Full Review
