    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jul 18, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Wonder Woman #1 is a masterpiece. The adventure is remarkable from the start, but the way in which it develops and grows is unlike anything Ive seen before. Its like the book is living and contorting, able to shift into whatever the creators choose to be. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 24, 2023

    The cliffhanger ending for the issue does feel a bit forced given what a strong presence Diana had managed throughout so much of the issue. And the inner struggle that the nightmare is bringing out of Diana and Constantine might seem kind of disinteresting on a surface-level, but there IS some interesting insight into the inner psyches of both heroes. Some of the surface level stuff can be pretty haunting in its own right. The lasso turning into barbed wire is a particularly intense visual given how reassuringly safe its been for Diana over the years...even when its been something of a threat to her.  Read Full Review

    The story manages to effectively place in all three characters' heads as they encounter the surreal and disturbing, and the way things spiral out of control is highly effective. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Jul 19, 2023

    DCs horror event Knight Terrors is in full swing, and were finally to the part where Wonder Woman gets her own tie in. Unfortunately she felt like a guest to John Constantine in her own tie in. Meanwhile Steph Williams and Meghan Hetrick give us a dark story on Paradise Island where Nubias dealing with her own nightmare from the well of Horrors, and its a pitch perfect backup. Heres hoping that the next issue Diana doesnt feel like the guest in her own story. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 18, 2023

    The Justice League Dark gets the focus in Knight Terrors: Wonder Woman #1, but Wonder Woman gets to take charge as the main hero keeping their head about themselves. The magical blends well in a nightmare-infused story that sets up quite a threat for Wonder Woman to vanquish in the final chapter. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Christopher R. Ford Aug 23, 2023

    The way writer Josie Campbell mixes the heavy topics with some genuinely funny moments makes this issue a lot of fun to read. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Nicole Drum Jul 19, 2023

    You get the sense that the story doesn't really know which character it wants to follow, which contributes to some difficult pacing. The art, however, is interesting and well executed landing the issue as just an average entry in the overall event which itself is so far just average, too. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jul 15, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Wonder Woman #1 is another in a string of Knight Terrors tie-in comics that only serve as nightmare issues contributing to the main event. This issue is notable in that Campbell slightly changes the rules of what's happening, but not in a good way. Read Full Review

    The first tale is fantastic! I WANT MORE OF THAT PLEASE.
    Give Josie Campbell and Juan E. Ferreyra a Justice League Dark book please.

    The second tale was boring so the rating is really for the first.

    I really hope Josie Campbell sticks the landing on this as I feel she may be the best writer DC has to finally provide a readable Wonder Woman series post Greg Rucka. Her track record from her work on New Champion of Shazam and the AMAZING My Adventures of Superman, already show she's a far better suited writer for the character than Tom King (all set with a depressing Wonder Woman story where half the writing is just old song lyrics).

    There are two stories in the book so I will rate each one.

    First story 8.5/10.

    The art is fire and WW actually feels like WW, or at least a lot more like she should compared to her previous writings, so kudos to Campbell I believe? Although it should be noted that Constantine does a lot of heavy lifting in this book, but he is quite well so I kind of look past that. Detective Chimp is sort of there as well as mostly comic relief which is sort of a shame.

    In all honesty with how well the WW lead Justice League Dark was, this book being a fair bit about them is good. As we move forward with people consantly writing her poorly (not this issue, this issue was fine), it feels more like she should be in JL:D then more

    There were multiple times I had to remind myself that Wonder Woman was the character name on the cover as the issue became an amalgamation of Justice League Dark stories. Wonder Woman still gets some solo scenes, though Detective Chimp and Constantine steal the show in an underwhelming Wonder Woman story, but overall enjoyable entry into the Knight Terrors event written by Josie Campbell.

    KNIGHT TERRORS: WONDER WOMAN #1 follows this trio as the attempt to free the rest of the League who they believe is held captive in the middle of a maze. Along the way they face various nightmare-induced monsters and hinderances that test their strength and mental fortitude. The setting is brilliantly captured by Juan Ferreyra’s art. It’s w more

    For a Wonder Woman book this sure does focus more on characters NOT named "Wonder Woman."
