    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 18, 2021

    The cover teases Yara in her Wonder Woman attire, but this is an origin story. Despite the lack of action it doesn't feel like a wasted moment in this book and there's a palatable excitement of the unknown with this new character and her bright future. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu May 19, 2021

    In the first few pages, the use of the vibrant pop of the golden sky against the dark monochrome figures creates an interesting way to show a flashback, as opposed to the typical black and white or blurry images. The explosions of color carry throughout the issue, with a focus on nature being the most saturated. For example, on the plane, Yara pulls out an intense pink and yellow bag decorated with flowers, against the muted colors of the plane.  Read Full Review

    Jones and Bellaire have a promising start for this up and coming Amazon. The art is beautiful, and Jones went all out for Yara. Time will tell if they have there wherewithal to capitalize on the potential. I have high hopes they can. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 19, 2021

    Wonder Girl #1 is an issue with a lot on its shoulders. The character is clearly one that DC has a lot of plans and hopes for and needed a debut issue that delivered on that. Thankfully, it does, and then some. Wonder Girl #1 is a hell of a start with a fantastic focus and beautiful art. This is the rare comic that is able to shine under a lot of pressure and even then, exceeded expectations. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes May 24, 2021

    A hit over a couple of issues, Yara Flor now has the added weight of an ongoing monthly book on her young shoulders. Marvel seems to be head and shoulders ahead of DC when it comes to delivering good female led books. Maybe Jolle Jones and Yara Flor can start to eat into that lead. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd May 18, 2021

    Wonder Girl #1 is a great start to a new series. There's so much potential in the character of Yara Flor and the Brazilian Amazons. This issue is just the start, but Jones and Bellaire indicate that the are capable of exploring Yara's story. There's so much in this issue in both content and execution, and it all goes back to character and world building. Go ahead and prepare to plot down your fiver for this book. It doesn't matter if you have any interest in Wonder Woman or not, Yara Flor is her own woman and there's an interesting and exciting journey to be found here. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison May 18, 2021

    Ignoring the interludes with the Amazons, this issue does a fantastic job of showing just who Yara is and why she's destined for greatness, even if her destiny is not yet obvious to anyone. Jolle Jones' art is as fine as ever and draws the reader into the story effectively. Paired with the colors of Jordie Bellaire, the final effect is breathtaking. This is one gorgeous book and one that is well worth reading, if somewhat slow to start. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 19, 2021

    Wonder Girl #1 kicks off Yara Flor's hero journey with a strong statement. Joelle Jones does a lot of great work to create a foundation for what makes Yara Flor a breakout character for DC Comics. Mixing in different mythologies, from Greek to Brazilian, adds to the excitement around how this series will expand the Wonder Woman franchise into brand new frontiers. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Marina Z. May 18, 2021

    Wonder Girl #1 has grand ideas, and magnificent art, it suffers from the rushed pacing and a plot too involved for a single issue. Despite these issues, Wonder Girl has great potential. Yara is an interesting character and the art team is talented. Hopefully, as the series continues, the pacing and plot problems will be worked out. Read Full Review

    Sadly, this one hasn't worked for me. The Art alone could have told the story, with a big of giggery pokery with the structure. However, sadly the text didn't work for me. Read Full Review
