    Joelle Jones is such a gift on this issue, both writing and artistically, and Jordie Bellaire's colors add that final touch to make everything SHINE. As I said earlier, the stakes are REAL in this event, there are no limits to what can happen, and it's an event that works! This issue continues the event well while still honoring Yara Flor as a central character. Trial of The Amazons: Wonder Girl #1 is a certified triumph! Read Full Review

    While this entry into the "Trial of the Amazons" recaps a lot of Yara Flor's storyline, it's still a beautiful issue that also brings in Cassie Sandsmark who is determined to find Hippolyta's killer. The first half of the issue might border on superfluous with its recaps, but Jolle Jones and Jordie Bellaire manage to push all those thoughts away with their stunning art and colors.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Mar 23, 2022

    This good-looking issue is filled with detailed drawings and a colorwork that varies based on location on mood. This art in this chapter gives off a newsprint feel that feels very traditional despite the modern styling which in my opinion completely captures the tone of the story. Read Full Review

    Joelle Jones does a marvelous balancing act as she adds a bit more to Yara Flor's story as she gets into Cassie's investigation of Hippoylta's murder. The personal approach to both Yara and Cassie in Trial of the Amazons; Wonder Girl #1 is the key to making both aspects work, and the art is just glorious. While it's hard to not wish we simply got Wonder Girl #8, Jones makes it all together. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 23, 2022

    Flors series is over. This issue and the following chapter could be an exciting launching point for an entirely different Amazon series. An anthology of one-shot stories that might explore Nubia, Cassie, Yara, and Artemis (among others) could be an intriguing approach to a non-Wonder Woman series set in and around Themyscira. The Trial of the Amazons shows considerable potential in the rest of Wonder Womans world. The recently-announced Nubia: Queen of the Amazons series that has been scheduled to debut in June is a step in the right direction. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 22, 2022

    Trial of the Amazons: Wonder Girl #1 is a good chapter that serves to add new info surrounding Yora Flor's people and key scenes that have already taken place. On top of that, plot progression is evident surrounding the murder mystery and the larger threat to all Amazons. With those items out of the way, let the Trial of the Amazons begin! Read Full Review

    Yara Flor's solo series came to an abrupt end for this event, so this miniseries by Joelle Jones has to pull double duty. Not only does it have to advance Yara's story, but it also has to push the main narrative of the event forward. It does both, but not without some hiccups. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 23, 2022

    Due to the flashback nature of Trial of the Amazons: Wonder Girl #1 there was very little plot progression for this event. More than anything this comic book was a showcase of Joelle Jones and Jordie Bellaire's phenomenal artwork. Trial of the Amazons: Wonder Girl #1 was filled stunning artwork that fans will love. Hopefully now that all of the set up is out of the way for all the major players involved the remaining chapters of Trial of the Amazons will have a stronger balance of character and plot progression.

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Mar 22, 2022

    Trial of the Amazons: Wonder Girl #1 answers some questions about the Esquecidas arrival at the event and fills in a few blanks surrounding Yara Flor's backstory, but the answers invite almost as many questions as they answer. Meanwhile, Cassie's investigation lacks tension, and the answer may already have been given away, inviting readers to wonder if Hippolyta's murder was even necessary. Regardless of the writing, the art is gorgeous and might be worth the purchase alone. Read Full Review

    Escrito e ilustrado por Jollene Jones.
    Tintas por Jordie Bellaire.
    Parte número 4 del evento amazónico “Trial of the Amazons”, el cual nos demuestras las tribus de todas las amazonas enfrentándose por saber quién será la nueva reina.

    Tenemos flashbacks de la historia de la tribu de Yara y la investigación de la muerte de la exreina Hypollita. Además de la aparición de un nuevo villano en forma de sombra y haciendo posesiones a canguros.

    Lo Malo.
    La cantidad de paginas y el valor del comic como tal. Con solo 21 paginas este comic se ve obligado a que la historia se reduzca bastante y se necesita hacer speed runs para abarcar todo lo que Jollene Jones tiene en mente para Yara Flor.

    Okay. It took four issues but we finally get an issue that doesn't read like a page out of a textbook. Joelle Jones isn't my favorite writer or artist, but she undeniably brings life and character to this dull, lifeless event. Thank the gods. The only issue with it is that it's mostly filling in the gaps left by Wonder Girl's unceremonious cancelation, which can make this part of the event feel like filler. The character work, now that it finally exists, is just so strong that it carries the rest of the book.

    Jones really outdoes herself on the art here, mixing Alphonse Mucha and George Perez influences into her already-wonderful style. The writing, however, is hit-and-miss; not much happens and the pacing is uneven at best. Worth reading for the art

    Beautiful art but the script was quite dull

    The art is completely gorgeous, and while I do like the plot is moving along I do think this is a bit of a filler issue and we do get clues to what happened to Hippolyta. There's a reason why Yara Flor's series was cancelled, and thats because Joelle Jones goes off tangent when she writes.

    This so far is the part of Trial of the Amazons I have read through the fastest and I am left wondering what even happened to make it worth the money I paid for it.

    I didn't keep up with Wonder Girl, so I appreciate the flashback but it went on for way too long. The story progression is minimal at best. Cassie investigates but I have to agree with Artemis that Nubia should have chosen someone better because her skills in this leave much to be desired. The mystery of Doom's Doorway doesn't progress here or maybe minimally if one wants to be generous.

    Joelle's art is pretty and she certainly draws gorgeous women but her panel-to-panel storytelling is still mediocre at best and sometimes the emotions depicted do not matc more
