    I've only been half reading Wonder Woman these last couple of months. Sometimes I would read the entire issue, other times I'd flip though to get a general overview, and yes, more than a few times, I've moved the title to my not going to read pile. Wonder Woman #26 is so well done, I read it twice. Gail Simone spins a great tale, and Lopresti's art is great as well. Wonder Woman #26 earns 4 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    The lettering could use more work. The credits on page 2 are almost unreadable. The cover is also rather underwhelming. It looks like Wonder Woman asleep in front of a guy trying to disguise himself as a Christmas tree. Read Full Review

    Throughout the issue, artist Aaron Lopresti continues to provide some top notch work, capturing the majesty and beauty of Diana while never forgetting to remind us that she's also a badass. Lopresti's expressions are lively, and his action extremely energetic. Unfortunately, Simone never gets around to connecting the important parts of her plot, so the big fight scene that Lopresti delivers so effectively never feels all too significant. Still, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't interested in where this is all headed. Read Full Review

    Whereas previous storylines on the new run showed traces of the best of Simone's work, "Rise Of The Olympian" has her skills on full display. It's an engaging and even startling read at times. And while Aaron Lopresti might not carry the same weight as the Dodsons who started off Simone's run, he has remained a very dynamic artist since he started on the book, and has improved with each issue. "Wonder Woman" is finally starting to gel into a book every part a flagship as its two companions in DC's "trinity". Read Full Review

    In the end, this whole changing the life of Wonder Woman thing is a big risk for something that's barely two years out. But I say don't give up -- we lived through Amazons Attack!, we can get through this. All of us Wonder Woman fans will just have to wait and see to what extent this life altering will go. Hopefully, it will be in a good direction with sturdy plot structure and witty dialogue. Read Full Review
