    Overall, I found this chapter to be both emotionally connective and transportive. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 27, 2022

    Themyscira has been through a lot. Back in the Golden Age, Wonder Woman was forced to lift the entirety of the island right out of the ocean on more than one occasion. (Paradise Island had a decoy. It was weird.) Back in the 1990s, John Byrne had the entire island nearly decimated by Darkseid. Decades later, it emerges from a massive battle with Chaos itself. The smoke clears, and theres only one Wonder Woman title left...and a big coronation issue thats coming next month.  Read Full Review

    There is a lot to like here, but it does feel rather scattered for an event focusing on an underused corner of the DCU. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 26, 2022

    Trial of the Amazons #2 ends the story arc meeting a lot of the criteria that make for a good event ender. It looks good, features great character moments, and is a fantastic villain for the Amazons to band together to fight. It also reads like some things were rushed to fit within the plot. Ultimately, though, the takeaway is growth from a variety of characters and a new dawn for many of these series. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Apr 26, 2022

    Trial of the Amazons #2 is a bit of a mixed bag. There are some really great details, but some glaring omissions and missed opportunities as well. In a crossover events you're goint to have launching points, but the Altuum and Artemis plotlines just feel unresolved. "Trial of the Amazons lands on the right foot, however, with the three tribes of Amazons united and prepared to go forward together with their disagreements put behind them. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 26, 2022

    A big, important Amazon event was long overdue, but Trial of the Amazons didn't feel significant from the start and didn't do much to drastically change up the Wonder Woman family status quo. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 27, 2022

    Trial of the Amazons #2 was ended the latest Wonder Woman event in disappointment. Just about every plotline in Trial of the Amazons rushed at the end so the payoff just doesn't end up working out as intended. The Trial the story is named after being dropped almost completely is an example of how big of a missed opportunity this entire event was. Its such a shame because Trial of the Amazons had a good start but just never found its footing in the second half of the story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Apr 26, 2022

    Trial of the Amazons #2 finishes the event the way the event started - with a big, old mess. None of the major plot points are addressed (i.e., why Artemis killed Hippolyta), and the Trial to determine who guards Doom's Doorway never happens. Likewise, the contest to name the new Queen never happens. This event should be remembered as a complete failure by DC Editorial. Read Full Review

    The whole event just seems unfinished and undercooked, and ends without any answers or direction. It's disappointing. Read Full Review
