    Nubia pays the Victor's Circle a visit when she hears words of doubt about her rise to Queen. So instead of talking a nice talk to try and convince people of her intent, she walks the walk, going to the Victor's Circle to prove her worth with her own hands. How can we not stan?

    The sublime pencils of Alithea Martinez and her collaboration on inks with Mark Morales is a perfect tandem. Aleen Passalaquas colors are rich and abundant. Set on an island of paradise, this is a story brimming its pages and promising more to come. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Nov 16, 2021

    The illustration in this beautiful issue is filled with brilliant colors that give off a warm and inviting vibe. Themyscira is also a character in this tale, and I really appreciate the way the artists take the time to show off the island's charms and iconic landscapes. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Clint Theron Nov 16, 2021

    This mini-series is the best thing to happen to the Amazons of Themyscira in decades. Gone are the days of Amazons Attack! This prelude to Trial of the Amazons has filled me with hope and confidence for the creative team to bring their A-game to the upcoming Wonder Woman event. Read Full Review

    It's hard to see exactly where this series will go yet, but this is a very promising start and a worthy expansion of the WW line of books. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 17, 2021

    If there is a serious flaw in the first couple of chapters of the series, it may be overall pacing. The individual installment is really well-calibrated, but there's a definite deadline for everything. There are only four more issues left to go in the series. There may be a few too many characters in the ensemble for a six-issue miniseries. The balance that the writing team is managing would work quite well for an ongoing series. However, it's difficult to imagine the overall story reaching a satisfying ending by the sixth issue. Read Full Review

    Overall, Nubia and the Amazons is expanding its corner of the DC universe in an unexpected"but necessary"way. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Nov 16, 2021

    Nubia & The Amazons #2 introduces a cool concept about a Fight Club on Themyscira and a formidable villain. That said, the Fight Club concept doesn't make sense in the broader context of life on the island, and it has no relevance to the central conflict of the story. The art is just okay, but it's elevated by gorgeous coloring. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - C.V.R. The Bard Nov 18, 2021

    With all of that and William's paragraph style script, there is a lot of book here in a mere twenty something pages (because of the Batgirls preview, which seemed completely unnecessary so I skipped) that will keep reader's of "Nubia And The Amazon's" satisfied for the next 30.

    This title continues to establish new Wonder Woman lore left, right, and center, and I'm here for it! The worldbuilding Ayala, Williams, and Martinez are dishing out is much needed and comes in a great package with gorgeous art, mystery, and a compelling threat from Doom's Doorway.

    Decent continuation. Builds more on the lore of Themyscira and brings back notable WW villain.,

    I Review Comics Dec 10, 2021

    Nubia & The Amazon’s #1 was a slog to get through. There wasn’t much happening in the issue and aside from some beautiful cover art, there wasn’t much of note worth mentioning.

    I decided to see where the story was going and kept the title on my pull list. Sadly this issue starts worst than the last one. It falls into the 2021 trap of presenting “Diverse” characters as flawless wise sages which sounds good in theory but ends up being boring and overly pretentious while reading.

    At one point Nubia seeks council from the Amazonian Gods. Its mentioned that Diana has “ The Gift of Knowing”, while Nubia has “The Gift of Distinguishing”. Neither of these descriptions made any sense to me so I asked my 16 ye more

    Yeah... this is just a whole lot of talking and it's not particularly interesting talking. Side note: Vita Ayala doesn't write the scripts for this. Stephanie Williams does. Just pointing that out for the idiot who can't read a credits page.

    This was a lot more Vita Ayala than Williams, I can always recognize her unnecessary verbal diarrhea that ultimately goes nowhere.
