    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 2, 2010

    Really enjoying this title. It's fresh and unique take on Wonder Woman and is moving at a much faster pace than previous JMS books. Kramer's art has been excellent throughout as well. If I had any complaints, it would be mostly with Wonder Woman's dialogue as she seems quite glib in the face of all these adversities, particularly when speaking with Charon. Otherwise, a great issue. Read Full Review

    A very solid story, with a ton of potential for future development. Exciting and fun read, and as long as they keep Wonder Woman moving forward"both as a character and in the physical sense"I'm sticking with it. Read Full Review

    I'm not in love with it yet, but I plan to hang around for at least a few more issues to see where it goes. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Sep 30, 2010

    Wonder Woman #603 was another great read. Even though there is the problem with some inconsistent art, JMS story is able to make up for that. I have never been a Wonder Woman fan and JMS is easily changing winning. The story is a lot of fun with a solid mystery surrounding what happened to change Wonder Womans history and why all of the Greek Gods disappeared. If you have never read Wonder Woman before this is a good jumping on point. And if you have been reading this book and did not like the new costume I say give this comic a shot because the story is very fun. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 3, 2010

    The youthening and pantsening are no longer the focus of the story, and the events are very mythical and extremely well-drawn by Don Kramer and company, causing Wonder Woman #603 to earn 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. Its not just the same old thing, and with a character of this vintage, thats a damn good thing. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Sep 29, 2010

    Wonder Woman #603 sees Diana lead the band of Amazonian refugees she saved last issue across the desert towards safety before being whisked away by ghosts to the shores of Hades. There, Diana encounters the mythic ferrymen Tartarus, who informs her that Hades abandoned his realm two decades ago in mortal time, leaving the underworld in a state of chaos. If this all sounds familiar, it is. JMS plays with the conventions and tropes of the myriad hero-visits-underworld stories of lore, just not in a way that feels very meaningful. What we instead get is a derivative tale that throws Wonder Woman into the bowels of hell before she far too easily and conveniently is able to escape and return to the land of the living, where she comes face to face with her mother's murderer. Because he provides little explanation as to why any of this matters, these developments feel like little more than wheel-spinning on JMS' part. The art isn't as inconsistent or unwieldy as one would expect from a book d Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Sep 30, 2010

    This issue definitely made a run for a Buy It verdict thanks to some really interesting concepts presented by JMS and strong efforts from all of the artists involved. Unfortunately, the lack of cohesion in the art and the very rushed concepts in the writing held this one back just enough that it stayed in Check It range. I'm still really enjoying the new direction for Wonder Woman, but unfortunately this issue isn't quite up to par with the previous offerings in this run. Read Full Review

    This "All-New" Wonder Woman has yet to knock my socks off, but I am confident that the pay off will happen soon. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Oct 1, 2010

    "Wonder Woman" #603 is a disappointing issue that provides a pointless detour from the main story, one that detracts so much that it questions the necessity of this change in the status quo. Why bother if this is the sort of story Straczynski wants to tell? The final pages are strong in the lead-in to next issue and that just reinforces how much a waste the preceding pages were.
