This first chapter of the 2-part "Expatriate" story takes Wonder Woman to the furthest reaches of the galaxy--but not before the vicious alien race known as the Khund begin an assault on Earth! Wait until the Amazonian Princess finds out why they've targeted her planet! Plus, an appearance by a Green Lantern!

    The duo go off to 'negotiate' with the alien invaders as we see there's more to the story than the Khunds are giving during one of the meetings with the Khunds ruler. In the crater of a former city, Diana and Etta encounter a Green Lantern, of all people (aliens?), who seems a bit off his rocker based on his insane looking appearance. Completely unexpected turn of events, to say the least. Read Full Review

    The one shining spot in this issue comes with art of Bernard Chang, whose expressive style mimic's Gail Simone's ability to channel both the compassionate side of Wonder Woman and her warrior mentality. Just witness the vulnerability Chang gives Diana in her scene with Nemesis, and then look at his depiction of the character just a few pages later, when she's locked in violent combat with the alien invaders. Chang's ability to bring out both sides of Diana is the perfect complement to what Gail is trying to do with the character. It would be a real shame if Chang's knack for emotional nuance were lost in the flash and swashbuckle of the upcoming storyline. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Mar 26, 2008

    I was really hoping for a leap into the unknown – something that would be ominous and challenging for Diana. Instead, I was given something familiar to her in an unfamiliar setting. There's still an interest in where this story will go, but what could have been something great has severely diminished to near mediocrity. As sweet as Bernard Chang draws Wonder Woman, the rest of the art is a mixed bag; sometimes it looks great, other times a bit rough around the edges. Read Full Review
