    This series has been falling somewhere in the middle of the pack since the new creative team came on board. Pete Tomasi handles Superman well enough, but his WW is portrayed as overly brusque and even vicious at times. That problem strikes once again in this issue, and too rarely do we get a sense of the love uniting these two heroes. Read Full Review

    Much as I love Tomasi's character writing, he's not much of an ideas man. More often than not, he cobbles together just enough of a plot for his characters to stand on, and more often than not, that's enough. But every now and then, it feels like the plot is about to collapse on itself right under the characters' feet and Tomasi overcompensates by shoring it up with an excess of exposition. These times, it feels like he's trying to justify what he's already written instead of revealing what he's planned all along. Read Full Review

    This issue is far from great, but at least it shows some promise going forward.  This Wonder Woman heavy issue introduces a stronger villain and a decent cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    I'll give Mahnke his proper respect. This is a great splash page. I highlighted to panels and parts of the book I liked. But overall I continue to have some problems with this issue and arc. The pages devoted to Magog's origin, the almost unnecessary Wonderstar subplot, Circe's motivation, the idea that Circe would attack the pantheon, and even Superman literally hanging around for some of the issue ... it just puzzled me.
