    This is a highly recommended series from DC, it's solid from the dialogue and script, to the artwork. The characters have heart. This is a story about these characters driving the script, rather than the plot that pushes the story. Personally, the New 52 era Wonder Woman makes more sense, as a character that was literally raised in an ancient warrior cult(ure) but, hopefully in later issues this classic Superman will be felt again, like he was in this one. This is the Clark Kent anyone can get behind and would want to read about. Definitely a must read from DC's current line and worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Superman/Wonder Woman #20 was a brilliantly written read. Tomasi demonstrates why he is still one of DC's top writers. Given the horrible editorial decisions with Superman and Wonder Woman, it is nothing short of stunning that Tomasi is able to take what he is given and craft it into such a well written and enjoyable comic book.

    Superman/Wonder Woman #20 is yet another mesmerizing addition to the power couple's narrative, with the creative team giving us a intense series of developments. This is also accompanied by wonderful mystery, with there being a few unanswered questions left to answer as we head into the next installment. Read Full Review

    Between a weird extended cameo and the fact that the title characters feel oddly separated, Superman/Wonder Woman #20 still proves that Clark Kent's new status quo is one that is rife with storytelling potential. Seeing Clark and his supporting cast in such a raw, emotional position gives us a lot to relate to, and while his execution is occasionally flawed, it's nice to see Tomasi giving some thought to the global ramifications behind Superman's unmasking. As far as interludes go, this one's a strong one. Read Full Review

    This is a must read for those demanding more answers, but those same people will likely find this one a mixed bag. Read Full Review

    While this issue was all setup, I did like hearing Superman explain why he had a secret identity.  Why he doesn't just call a press conference and explain it to the world is beyond me, but I'm glad we got it and I really enjoyed his reasons.  While the art was consistent throughout, the story was a bit confusing and forced at times. I'm not sure who is really on Clark's side at the end, but I am actually interested to find out. Read Full Review

    Superman/Wonder Woman #20 came out this week, another chapter in The Truth, another book labeled with the cover dress 'Alienation', another book with a couple of decent moments. But it also is another issue of this new direction of Superman that overall just doesn't make much sense to me. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Aug 19, 2015

    In effect the DC You version of Superman is quite clearly a failed experiment at this point. It was perhaps interesting to see a deconstruction of the iconic character, but equally it has taken the character into areas which are dull and boring, not into areas which are compelling. Other series have been ineffective at showing the meaning of this change, but perhaps the entire concept has hit rock bottom here as it wastes it time with Superman and then throws off a characterization of Wonder Woman as wildly untrue from what it should be. Dc You is about making the heroes more approachable, but it is not working here, and the company probably needs to get the real Superman back as soon as possible. Read Full Review
