    Not a bad start for this storyline I'd say. There's still A LOT of mystery going on here, but I'm sure everything will start to make a little bit more sense in an issue or two. The reveal at the end was pretty shocking, seeing as that I didn't realize WW had an evil, space fairing aunt, but as I said earlier, I'm guessing that will be further explored come next issue. Being a fan of both WW and the GLC, I've got to admit that this comic definitely left me wanting to read more. Read Full Review

    This issue is a competent read, but failed to blow me away or convince me that I've been missing much by not reading Simone's series before now. The cliffhanger also shows some promise for the arc, but I couldn't help but laugh at the delivery of it all. It felt as if I was watching the end of The Empire Strikes Back, only without a whiny Mark Hamill in it. If you haven't been a fan of the Wonder Woman title as of late, this isn't going to convince you to pick it up. At this point it would be a safe bet to simply wait for the new creative time to take over in the next few months before jumping onboard. Read Full Review

    Both the art and writing staff have delivered stronger work in the past. I'm going to chalk up this month's lower grade to the rough start of a new arc and will check out the next issue to see where Simone and company take us with this surprising and new (and apparently coincidental) villain.

    Gail Simone has truly put a lot into the story of "Wonder Woman," and I hope to be able to enjoy a few more issues from her once again. This issue isn't one of them. Read Full Review

    Either way, this issue just doesn't ever quite put the pieces together, stepping on my decrees and making me request that Parliament remove it's kingly powers. Read Full Review
