    The only weakness to the story is the way Nemesis suddenly uses holograms in his battle with the gorillas. There is no explanation for this, not even in his thoughts or his dialogue so any newcomer reading the book would wonder how the heck he could suddenly transform into a gorilla. This is a widespread problem with most comic books today, where they simply assume the reader knows everything about all the characters and don't even bother to explain how someone can suddenly fire rockets out of his butt or perform some other super-feat.

    Pick this one up only if you have been following the arc or just to admire Loprestis work. Simone is an extremely talented author but this might not be the best place to jump on the series and experience that talent. Read Full Review

    On art, Aaron Lopresti continues to prove he's a good fit for Wonder Woman, and his handling of the sword-and-sorcery scenes was the one aspect of this material that I fully enjoyed. I'm not sure if he's ever drawn Conan, but he sure knows how to, and his dark, hellish landscapes perfectly drive home the tone that (I think) Simone is going for. For the most part, however, I'll be eager to see "Ends of the Earth" wrap up with next issue. I much prefer to follow Diana's story as it pertains to the normal DCU. Read Full Review
