    Simone isn't trying to do anything revolutionary here, but she is telling the type of straightforward Wonder Woman tale that we haven't read in quite a while. And it's nice to see. Read Full Review

    I have faith that Simone will get everything on track; she has a lot to fix. If you're wavering I suggest staying on and giving it a bit more time. The woman made Cat Man cool and the Mad Hatter seem scary. That possibility is worth a few issues. Read Full Review

    This arc is over and for a two issue arc, it was hit and miss, but nothing I'd consider dropping the book over. I think the next arc should decide if Simone will be able to keep Wonder Woman interesting. Read Full Review

    Other than an enjoyable sequence following the love-struck Nemesis as he trains new Department of Metahuman Affairs agents, there's just not much to like about this issue. Simone's debut arc was enjoyable largely because of the way she enriched the Wonder Woman mythology by putting Diana through a very character-driven struggle. Once the writer moved her main character away from her supporting cast and Paradise Island and into space, of all places, I suspected that any opportunity for a repeat would go out the window. And I was right. The end product is a contrived sci-fi morality play starring Diana, a Green Lantern and a generic evil alien race. As far as I'm concerned, Wonder Woman's return to Earth can't come soon enough. Read Full Review
