    This issue might be a dense read, but it is a tale that no summer film budget could hope to touch. A tale of intrigue and despair, hope and loss, suffering, courage and grace. There are battles in this issue on par with those found in "300" or the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. Most importantly, there are developments in character and environment set to play out quite strongly over the near future and well beyond. If you missed this issue of "Wonder Woman", make note of the next. Simone keeps setting the bar just a little higher for herself and she keeps offering rewarding adventures in the process. Of the titles featuring the DCU Trinity, this title has me most interested. Read Full Review

    Despite an overly complex plot, I liked this issue. Gail Simone really writes a heroic Diana, and Lopresti and Ryan are the perfect duo in bringing her to life. Read Full Review

    I've been fairly critical of "Rise of the Olympian" since its debut, so it does please me to say that the story's finale is a huge improvement over previous issues. Unfortunately, there were just too many flaws in this story for Simone to fully redeem it at the eleventh hour, even if she did set the table for future tales. Read Full Review

    So where does this issue stand? Aaron Lopresti + little to no Genocide + silly wang cannon = good. Screwing with Wonder Woman identity (again) + potential rehashing of blah story arcs = bad. Hey, its slightly better than bad, making this an okay issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 4, 2009

    It's a confusingissue in a series of confusing issues, and the parallel arcs of Genocide and the Olympians still seem awkwardly welded together. Read Full Review
