"Trial of the Amazons" part two! There's been a murder on Themyscira, and the killer is still on the loose! Now it's up to Nubia to play diplomat and detective as the other Amazon tribes are called in for questioning. Can she keep the peace long enough for the Contest to happen? She must, because Doom's Doorway stands unguarded until a new champion is found!

    A loving team of artists renders thoughtful details in every panel. Becca Carey's letters create distinctive voices. Together, it is a chorus for the eyes and the imagination of the reader. It is fair to assume that more brilliance is on the way. Read Full Review

    I was impressed with the way Williams crafted the series and I am very happy that Nubia's story will continue in other series. I look forward to more stories of the Amazons as well as future works from the members of this creative team. Read Full Review

    For the second part of the Wonder Woman event,Nubia & The Amazons #6 is a wholly satisfying end to the mini-series and early continuation of theTrials of the Amazons. I'm very excited to see more Nubia stories throughout 2022 and beyond, hopefully with this creative team. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 9, 2022

    Death isnt really all that permanent in any superhero universe. That being said, the real issue here seems to be with Wonder Woman...who just came back from the dead herself. Granted...it took her a few months to do so. Still, when the single most popular character in the crossover recently escaped death, the hefty weight of murder doesnt seem quite as important as it should if its going to be the central conflict of a seven-part event that spans two months. As a single moment, the issue carries itself quite well. As a part of a larger story, it lacks some intensity, which is really too bad as it IS the final issue of Nubias mini-series.

    All of these developments further develop Nubia as the current Queen of the Amazons of Themyscira. Her steady hand as leader is what was needed in such a tough time for the Amazons. Which all made the ending with the decision Wonder Woman makes at the end of Nubia & The Amazons #6 a strong hook to build greater investment going into the next chapter of Trial of the Amazons.

    This is definitely an essential issue for anyone wanting to catch up with the larger Trial event " or just experience the full breadth of the Amazons' universe. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Mar 8, 2022

    Nubia & The Amazons #6 ends the Nubia series (after it already finished) and continues the second chapter of The Trial of the Amazons event with a lot of talking and meetings. The art is just okay, and there's enough information here to be informative, but the numbering confusion was unnecessary, and this issue added little value as an epilogue to the Nubia run.

    Despite Medusa's appearance, this is in no way an ending to the story Ayala, Williams, and Martinez set up in prior issues. I'm not mad about that and it has been indicated clearly in the solicitations, still, this should have ideally been a one-shot because if this gets collected into the NatA TPB people are gonna scratch their heads.

    Martinez's art is enjoyable as always even if a proper fight scene is missing. Doom's Doorway is acting up further and Medusa might be able to give some hints to Nubia. I enjoy the spotlight on Cassie this sets up and hope Donna, who has sadly only been a silent bystander, for now, is going to get the same treatment.

    Hyppolita's death ceremony is handled well, but I was a little lost at more

    The pacing in this final, tie-in issue of Nubia is unbearably slow. The trend of uninspired dialogue continues and, since that's entirely what this issue is made up of, it really drags hard.

    A couple of problems with this event.

    Diana should be the main focus not the Amazons in general. If you are going to focus on Diana's supporting cast put the focus on Yara, Donna, Artemis and Cassie. People who are far more interesting and well known than the other Amazons.

    The pacing is terribly slow. The only thing that really happens is that the Amazons decide to continue the Trial and Diana is going to find the killer.

    The characterisation is weak. No one really stands out apart from maybe Nubia.

    The art is passable but nothing spectacular.
