    Two issues clearly isnt enough for this character. Under Jones guidance it would be silly for DC not to continue exploring Yaras potential beyond Future State so Im looking forward to her next appearance in the Infinite Frontier landscape. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Carlos R. Feb 2, 2021

    I tend to stick to digital formats when conducting my reviews, but I had to pick up a physical copy of this issue because I find myself going back to it to admire certain pages. Jones' designs are incredible, Hades and Persephone are amazing and the way Persephone cuts through Hades' hazy panels is fantastic. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Feb 8, 2021

    I'm already a fan of Future State, but to have Jones at the helm of a new character is a huge bonus! Again, get in on the ground floor and let's hope DC plays the long ball with this comic! It has so much potential! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Feb 3, 2021

    While Future State: Wonder Woman #2 completes the miniseries, Yara Flor will be sticking around as DC begins their Infinite Frontier era. And with everything we've seen from her character so far, she's sure to continue to grow and develop and make an excellent addition to the DC Universe.  Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Feb 2, 2021

    Future State: Wonder Woman #2 takes the promising start from issue #1 and sticks the landing with an extra backflip just to show off. The art is excellent, the emotional impact is turned up to 11, and this comic introducing a new character does exactly what it's supposed to do - leave me wanting more. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Feb 3, 2021

    Overall, the story itself is what you'd expect. However, Jones does throw in a curveball at the end to keep fans on their toes, which I loved. More or less, this FUTURE STATE series was simply a canvas to showcase what's been missing from our current WONDER WOMAN. Sure, theyre both strong, courageous warriors. Yet, they both exude their heroism in a different light. Jolle was the perfect writer and artist to tell this tale and I highly recommend every DC COMICS fan take a look. Yaras bold, foolhardy, and absurdly reckless style will hit readers in the face, take their lunch money, make them smile, and all while providing a fresh new take on a classic concept. Pick this issue up, grab the trade, and keep your fingers crossed that we get more Yara Flor from Jolle Jones in the future. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God bless!

    GWW - Brian Villar Feb 2, 2021

    Wonder Woman has been the standout series from the Future State titles. Not having to rely on a shared setting or environment was what made it unique. Everything from the setting, characters, creative team and mythology blends together with a unique harmony. Here is hoping this is picked up and continues as an ongoing series. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Robert Reed Feb 2, 2021

    The story of Future State: Wonder Woman #2 is ultimately a tale of loss and how heroes persevere through those losses. Jones and Bellaire tell a visually stunning story that also builds Yara Flor's character and shows readers why she's a worthy successor to the Wonder Woman mantle. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Feb 5, 2021

    It would have been nice for this arc to have an extra issue or two to really flesh things out, but this is still a fine read. Yara is a fantastic successor to Diana, and I look forward to seeing what's next for the character in her own ongoing series. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 6, 2021

    Conner and Palmiotti get to throw themselves a big epilogue party, with lots of gruesomeness, sexiness, funniness and heart-warmingness. It totally worked for me, as a previous fan of their Harley Quinn work. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Feb 2, 2021

    When all is said and done, Future State: Wonder Woman #2 expands and elevates the worlds introduction to Yara Flor. While I dont know what DC has planned for the newest Wonder Woman, I hope she gets another opportunity to shine her light in the comics world. Especially if they can keep Jones on to helm her story, as she seems to have a great sense for where this character needs to go. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 2, 2021

    While the nature of this miniseries means that things are a little rushed, it delivers a powerful and emotional finale that sets up some great things to come. I'm looking forward to Yara's presence in the Infinite Frontier era and she could be a great foundation for a new generation of young DC icons. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 3, 2021

    Future State: Wonder Woman #2 ended our first adventure with Yara Flor on a strong note. Joelle Jones did a fantastic job bringing Yara Flor and the world around her to life through both her writing and artwork. By the time we got to the final page all you are left with the feeling of wanting to get more adventures involving Yara Flor in the future. Hopefully, we learn that soon as Yara has a lot of potential by being further integrated into the greater Wonder Woman mythos. Read Full Review
