The Undoing are coming. Long past the Age of Heroes, few of Diana Prince’s friends survive, and most of her sisters have passed as well. As an immortal goddess, this is her lot. But then, a threat appears that even the mighty Darkseid can’t handle-and it’s up to Wonder Woman to take on the battle! It’s big action and high fantasy at the end of time, courtesy of Eisner Award-winning cartoonist Becky Cloonan (By Chance or Providence, Gotham Academy) and her Doom Patrol co-writer Michael W. Conrad, with the popular artist Jen Bartel (Blackbird) making her interior art debut for DC.

    While most of us have read this type of story before, this is still a wonderful debut. Cloonan's script is somber and impactful. Bartel's art is nothing short of astounding. Wonder Woman fans will absolutely want to pick this one up. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jan 19, 2021

    Overall, Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman #1 has one strong, epic story and another story with potential that it doesn't fully live up to that also shows the difficulty of transitioning from prose fiction to comics. However, this book is definitely worth picking up for Jen Bartel's career best take on the final battle between good and evil in the DC Universe with punches that make galaxies trembles and facial expressions that will make you tear up while Becky Cloonan and Michael W. Conrad write a Diana, who is trying to cling onto hope in an utterly no-win situation. Read Full Review

    Immortal Wonder Woman #1 offers vivid artwork and high stakes, but it begs the question" why is 'Future State' so miserable? The future seems unendingly bleak for the entire DC Universe, and after the hopeful end of Death Metal, it's starting to put a dampener on the whole initiative. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 22, 2021

    Immortal Wonder Woman #1 follows a similar format to many other Future State books with how we are dropped in the time period this series is exploring. That does cause some similar problems seen in other Future State comics to appear here. That said, Immortal Wonder Woman #1 shines where it matters most with the presentation of Diana Prince in the main story and Nubia in the back-up story. Add in the wonderful artwork seen throughout this comic book, Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman #1 is well worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    When it is all said and done, if you are not necessarily craving a new Wonder Woman, I would skip this issue. Diana has had way better stories and Nubia may not be your cup of tea. But if you are willing to read about a different version of Wonder Woman, go to you LCS asap and pick up this comic! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jan 19, 2021

    A few points to consider. First, It's misleading to call the Nubia story a backup since it's just as long as the Wonder Woman story. Second, the art is better than the Wonder Woman story. Not a lot better but better. Third, there might be a printing issue (at least in the review copy) as all the word balloons and lettering were repeated and superimposed on top of the art from the opening dialog between Grail and the museum guard to the first fight scene between Nubia and Grail. Hopefully, that won't show up in print but that's a major publishing error if it does.Bits and PiecesImmortal Wonder Woman #1 does it's best impression of The Neverending Story and falls well short. The story is clunky and the art is just plain terrible. The Nubia backup story has mildly better story and art, but not for the cover price. Read at your own risk. Read Full Review

    Okay I hopped on the Future State craze. That Nubia story and the promise of a homeless Batman drew me in. Luckily this story of a despondent Wonder Woman and a depressed Darkseid was better than I expected and feels in the same vein of Dead Earth with sexier art , painted , as opposed to the gritty , indigenous , pencils in Dead Earth.
    Speaking of indigenous , that Nubia story was perfect. Returning Grail to the forefront and opening up mystery as to Nubia's powers and her side of the DCU is welcome to my eyes and mind. Forget Yara, this Wonder Woman is better than a side story. This is a case of Bart and Hubert, just change the names to Diana and Nubia.

    One of my favourite Future State books so far!

    Immortal WW:
    Seeing Diana remain as one of the last heroes on Earth was an amazing idea! The artwork was stunning from start to finish. The cliffhanger with Darkseid and Superman was reeling us in for next issues events.


    I liked the idea of Grail still being around and Nubia getting some spotlight. The artwork was good, but it wasn’t as compelling.

    Immortal Wonder Woman tells two stories one is of Diana and one of Nubia.

    Diana's story takes place at the end of time as was shared when the news about Future State first dropped, and it feels a little like it? The art conveys a very melancholic and magical feel as Diana seeks closure among the ruins of Man's World. More specifically speaking the Bat Cave.

    Jen Bartel does a good job on art but her weaknesses show when it comes to action. At times poses look clunky and short-cuts are taken with the faces that seem more anime from time to time. Which isn't bad itself but not consistent with the overall look. Her strengths lie in the quiet moments, the atmosphere, and expressions.

    Cloonan and Conrad manage to more

    "Impossibly long ago, in the distant future." Unfortunately the stupidity of that line stuck with me to the very end. Like the rest of Future State, it makes little sense and will hopefully be forgotten with time.

    I've been a fan of Becky Cloonan's work since the moment I picked up Gotham Academy #1. It was like nothing else on the shelves. One that successfully broke the mold of the typical American superhero comic (aka capeshit) and appealed to brand new audiences, despite being set in the very same universe where Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman all live. What got me there was the memorable and colorful cast of characters, atmosphere and unique tone unlike anything DC had (and still has) in its arsenal.
    Immortal Wonder Woman, sadly, doesn't feature any of those. It's a bland, forgettable and quite frankly emotionless filler. And funnily enough its most memorable feature is a Gotham Academy easter egg involving a character called Maps. It ma more

    It's a beautiful looking comic, but neither story packs the same punch as the visuals. Diana's story is slow moving and features a vaguely defined threat. The Nubia story is better, but it doesn't do enough to explain its context in the future timeline.

    Nubia's story is nothing to write home about
    Diana's story is utterly wasted due to its portrayal of Darkseid

    Nothing worthwhile here
