    Nerds Unchained - David Staniusz Mar 14, 2014

    Though the arc is concluded, the story as a whole is far from complete. Soule and Daniel have laid the foundation for a very unique ongoing story and DC fans everywhere should celebrate. Read Full Review

    However, these questions pale in comparison to the strength of the story Soule and the team tells. All of the visual success comes in tandem with Soule's success as a writer. He balances the exposition and explanation with the incredible action scenes"the entire team is so on point with each other and the creative synergy between them is breathtaking. The end of the issue is unacceptable simply because we need to know what happens next. There doesn't seem any hope for Wonder Woman's survival, but we know that there's no way she'd be truly dead, especially not when this happen before the events of Forever Evil. Because we know that everything turns out all right in the end, we're so engaged in the story because we want to find out how. Read Full Review

    Lots of great moments, and while sometimes the action beats can stumble a bit, Superman/Wonder Woman always comes back better and stronger than before. This bears all the makings of a beautiful relationship. Read Full Review

    Naysayers can make their commentary but this series has become one of my absolute must buys. Everything from story, to art, to characterization is spot on and damn near perfect. I read all of Soule's books and by far this is my favorite. Any fan of Superman and Wonder Woman would be doing themselves a disservice by not reading this. I can't wait to see how this arc ends.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 12, 2014

    Superman/Wonder Woman #6 has great action and developments that will ripple through the New 52.  It also has some cheesy dialogue and puts Wonder Woman back two steps in the butt kicking department.  Even with that said, Soule and Daniel continue giving us one of the best books on the shelves.  Read it now.

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Mar 12, 2014

    Superman/Wonder Woman #6 is easily the best issue of the series to date, bringing in a lot excitement and intensity to the story while also having some decent relationship building and artwork to boot. Considering where the issue ended, I'm very much looking forward to how this arc closes out next time. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Mar 12, 2014

    This title continues to be full of entertaining action scenes, which are ably aided by Tony Daniel. There is so much action to cram into this book, and Daniel manages to be both epic and economic with every page. He continues to produce arguably the finest work of his career, and the results are an undeniable pleasure to see. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Mar 14, 2014

    So more of the same with this book. Decent action. Nice side plots. Gorgeous art. But the relationship between the main characters still isn't working for me. There hasn't been anything here that makes me think these two actually feel romantic about each other. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Mar 12, 2014

    Look, if you're part of the crowd that's very vocal against this relationship, odds are steam will shoot from your ears with this chapter (although, to be honest, I'm not sure why you're still reading it?). However, if you've been enjoying this run -- which appears to be more than a fair share of you -- then you're sure to be incredibly entertained by this issue. Not only is there a visceral slugfest, but the core of this one revolves around the dynamic between Superman and Wonder Woman. Sure, the ending seems designed to make some people question what's next (despite this taking place in the past...), but it still works because of the emotional moment the scene delivers and it absolutely leaves me curious to see how this will impact their relationship in the upcoming issues.

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Mar 13, 2014

    Superman/Wonder Woman #6in conclusion then is another stellar installment in an excellent series. Both Tony S. Daniel and Charles Soule are bringing their A-Game to the title and proving that this is a book that fans of both characters should be reading. Where it goes from here will be very interesting to watch unfold, and things should be very good indeed. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Matthew McGrath Mar 18, 2014

    The final splash page from Tony Daniel (Detective Comics) also one to rival the last image of Superman #75. It doesn't take three pages to display it's size. It's just a sole page. In that classic ish, Kal-El's cape caught a staff upright in the rubble. It waved in the breeze and flew at half-mast for the fallen hero. In Superman/Wonder Woman #6, that cape is used as a shroud.

    Superman/Wonder Woman #6 is a good comic that is more than a simple crossover book. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 15, 2014

    Even if Soule isn't winning me over with the relationship in this comic, he's at least got a strong handle on action and excitement. The stakes get pushed pretty darn high in this issue, both romantically and"actionly. But Soule and DC have only actually earned one of those. Read Full Review
