The realms of the gods have been turned upside down and inside out, on the verge of engulfing Earth and its people. Only one hero stands to defend it: Wonder Woman! But that is another world and another story. Behold the mirror image of this tale taking place in the Dark Multiverse, with a Wonder Woman who is ready to destroy it all! Cursed by the evil goddess of magic, Hecate, our beloved Diana has become a weapon of vengeance ready to tear down any god or superhero that stands in her way. Will Earth and its heroes survive her might? Or are they doomed to worship the dark princess of the Amazons for the rest of eternity?!

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Dec 1, 2020

    When all is said and done, Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Wonder Woman War of the Gods #1 delivers a strong story of the DC Universe gone wrong. It threads some strong themes into its narrative, making it more than just looking at a dark reflection of a previously done story. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 1, 2020

    The Tales from the Dark Multiverse don't ever seem to fully reach the potential of the premise opting more for shocking deaths and questionable characterization. This installment isn't exempt from some of those issues, but Ayala and Olivetti do a better job than most in exploring the concept further before the carnage. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 1, 2020

    While some of the continuity doesn't quite add up to what we got from the original War of the Gods event, this is a well done dark continuation to that story and tries more than most in this series to make it feel like it is a part of the era of DC Comics. The art is great and the dialog feels like it's pulled right out of the early '90s, I just wish that the story didn't feel like it needed to tackle so much because much like the original event, this one-shot came off a bit long-winded and bloated. It's still enjoyable though in the long run. Read Full Review

    Ariel Olivetti delivers some great visuals in this story. The style of the art is great and there is a classic feel to the imagery that is welcoming and engaging. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Dec 1, 2020

    While some like the Hush issue felt like they were too much story crammed into fifty pages, this one felt like it could have been 35-40 pages instead. Vita Ayala is a great writer, but I don't know that remixing this story gave them enough to work with. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner Dec 8, 2020

    Though somewhat interesting on the surface, this story falls to pieces due to its focus and implicit modernity. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Nicole Drum Dec 2, 2020

    It's a heavy, complex take of something that's been done, and while it's worthwhile and excellent, it can be a lot to take in. Though, bonus points for the authentic 90s feel all around. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Dec 4, 2020

    Overall this book fails to deliver an engaging story. It's far too long, clich and it's over exposition and forced messages makes this book silly and clearly for a younger audience. Unless you want to collect everything Wonder Woman, I would make a hard pass on this book. Read Full Review
