    I think this event will be remembered for many years, however this is not the only issue that proves how great it is " it does show how high quality the story arc is while making me look forward to what's next. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 12, 2014

    Superman/Wonder Woman #9 does a good job of being both a good Doomed chapter and Superman/Wonder Woman issue.  A couple new allies enter the battle against Superman as he fights the monster inside of him.  Charles Soule has me looking forward to both stories and Tony S. Daniel does a fine job of making everything look great.  Recommended. Read Full Review

    In the end though, while this issue makes for another fun entry of the Doomed crossover, it tends to do a disservice to the Superman/Wonder Woman story elements that Soule has been carefully crafting since issue #1. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Cory Robinson Jun 17, 2014

    The art by Tony Daniel is fantastic as always (what can I say, the man can draw a good splash page or two). There are dynamic action scenes, but some of his facial features can feel one-dimensional and don't seem to work correctly in the scenes where Wonder Woman is coming close to a nervous breakdown. The issue has some corny dialogue especially when Doomsday starts entering Clark's thoughts and becomes a kid's movie equivalent of a bully, but there are few faults in this issue. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Jun 12, 2014

    In conclusion then, Superman/Wonder Woman #9 may not be the best Superman-related title on shelves. However, its pretty damn good and its proving that there is life in the Superman: Doomed epic yet, and to see where Soule and Pak take it from here should be very interesting indeed.

    DC Comics News - Joey Garces Jun 12, 2014

    This is another strong addition to both the Superman/ Wonder Woman series and Superman: Doomed. Praise should be given to Soule and Daniel as they successfully balance all the elements that come with the issue and also offer a new side to Superman that will impact the rest of the series. If you've been following Superman: Doomed, then #9 is a must have. Read Full Review

    "Superman: Doomed" continues, and thankfully Soule and Daniel have had a great deal of success in their Superman/Wonder Woman crossover titles so far. With sharp writing and impressive artwork, it is hard for this team to miss the mark – even on a crossover that is as scattered as "Superman: Doomed". Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jun 13, 2014

    The romantic dialogue felt a bit off when Diana says goodbye to Clark. But I love how much she believes in him and defends him tirelessly. And, as usual, the art is just beautiful. Nice panel contruction. Diana looks fabulous and strong. Tony Daniel is just putting out incredible work. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 11, 2014

    While I do think this issue stumbles a little bit from its predecessors, "Doomed" still continues its hot streak with Superman/Wonder Woman #9. While the story has a lot of tension already inherent in its premise, Soule taps into a little bit of that human spark by showing things from someone other than Superman's perspective. While I think the excess of guest stars hurts this issue slightly, it's clear that the (super)power of love keeps this team-up book alive. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jun 11, 2014

    Superman/Wonder Woman #9 is not ground breaking nor will it change fan opinions on this relationship. But it does successfully continue Doomed as it comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Zach Wilkerson Jun 13, 2014

    “Superman/Wonder Woman” #9 is an enjoyable continuation of “Doomed,” but the story is beginning to drag. This is at least the third issue in a row that has ended with a rogue-ish Superman flying off for parts unknown. While Soule builds on the explosive events of the previous chapter, shifting the status quo ever so slightly, there's just not much forward momentum. This, coupled with the book's divided structure, prevents the issue from being an absolute must read. However, Soule's strong character work and Daniel's terrific art are certainly worth a look.

    Newsarama - Vanessa Gabriel Jun 18, 2014

    Superman/Wonder Woman #9 may be a necessary chapter in Kal and Diana's relationship to move the Superman: Doomed story along, but it does so at the expense of character authenticity. Whatever resolution may come of Superman's fight with death, a return to the honest repartee between two of the DCU's most powerful people will be a welcome one, if it ever comes. Let's hope for the composure of this title that it does. Read Full Review

    Pretty pictures; forgettable story. I'm very tempted to go on hiatus with these titles until Doomed is over. Stay tuned. Read Full Review
