    Without revealing too much, let me just say that this book takes off into some very surprising ground, and left me desperate to learn where this is all going. Simone has established a firm grip on all of her lead characters, specifically her primary one. The writer's trademark brand of humor is present from start to finish. This comic was a real treat to read, and I can't wait for more like it. Read Full Review

    So were back already to a sorceress fighting our Princess, but Simone I think has hit on something by setting the subterfuge in Hollywood. By the end of the issue Diana has been attacked by several ersatz versions of herself, including the Cathy Lee Crosby version from TV, the powerless '60s Emma Peel-clone, and her '40s, '50s and '60s versions as well. If what the Queen implies is true, Simone seems to be setting up a meta-fictional analysis of Diana as an evolving archetype of fiction, and thats a pretty fun level to work on with a character with so much history. Well, its the level her Alan Moore counterpart, Promethea, lived on in every issue. Im intrigued. Read Full Review

    A decent comic. Nice art, good writing, but nothing exceptional. There was enough here to bring me back for the next issue but it is not something that will have me waiting on the edge of my seat. Read Full Review

    The art is serviceable but nothing great. In some panels, it is rather stiff and heavy and does not make Wonder Woman look like the dynamic character she is suppose to be. Read Full Review
