    Simone, Lopresti and Ryan are delivering a really great series. If you haven't been following Diana up to now, get the trades and start following the series monthly with this issue, the first part in a 4-book arc called Warkiller. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 30, 2009

    This issue is thick and presumes a level of familiarity from its readers, but it provides a setup for trials and tribulations aplenty in the life of everyone's favorite Amazon. This issue doesn't clarify Wonder Woman's place in the world -" quite the opposite -" it gives her a challenge to find her way. On the way to self-discovery, Diana proves her mettle as a warrior, but quickly learns that she may be tactically outclassed. Read Full Review

    Well, gosh, what more is there to say that I haven't already said in past reviews? If you're a die hard fan then this book is probably already in your hands. If youre a new fan, well then I would assume you wouldn't be starting with issue #36, but maybe that's your thing. Either way, Wonder Woman doesn't fail to entertain, but it's falling short of impressing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Oct 23, 2009

    The art has a nice classical look to it. The human figures are very well-posed and their faces, while not realistic, do convey a deep sense of emotion. But the backgrounds look rather empty for such a major storyline. Were the artists rushed because the story was re-written? Or perhaps I am just jumping to conclusions. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 3, 2009

    Gail Simones dialogue carries its usual brilliance (I think I swallowed a fishing net, laments Giganta, having walked out of the ocean) and the art by Aaron Lopresti is everything youd want out of the title of the most significant female superhero, but there just hasnt been a clear enough focus for me on the Olympians threat and what the heck it is that he wants. Wonder Woman #36 earns 2 out of 5 stars overall, falling more into the awww, I had real hopes for this category than into any sort of failure. The spark that returned with the Black Canary two-parter is still here, but it just feels a little bit dimmer this time round. Read Full Review
