    I'm not sure I'd call this an ideal jumping on place (although really, there are no important events from the past four books that you couldn't intuit from the dialogue in this one), but it's certainly the end of the beginning for this story arc. The pieces are fully in place, there's a (fairly) clear goal for Diana now, and she has some nice new weapons and powers to help her meet the challenges that lay ahead. This is a big step forward, and I'm eager to see where Diana and her people go from here. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Oct 28, 2010

    The issue greatly fills out the back-story of the soldier responsible for slaughtering the Amazons, painting him as the true embodiment of all that is terrible about man's world. JMS is succinct but effective in his effort to flesh out this rogue, and it results in a showdown between Diana and the villain that's far more gripping and suspenseful than any of this story's earlier action sequences. Sure, the issue's first half is way more entertaining than its second, and many of the story's central questions and problems still persist – is "Odyssey" really just another ambiguous alternate reality tale with little immediacy, or is it something more than that? As long as JMS remembers to support his action with some much needed character development, as he does here, those questions won't be nearly as distracting and problematic moving forward.

    I am too much of a nerd to give up on Wonder Woman before this story arc comes to an end. But I just have to mention that I have certain reservation about how well it will come off if these last few issues are any indication. Read Full Review

    Perhaps particular fans of Wonder Woman will enjoy this issue a little more than I did--and I'm sure they'll cheer at one particular moment that sees JMS do away with one of the more controversial of Diana's recent costume revisions--but personally, I'm starting to wonder whether it's worth continuing to follow a book that hasn't provided anything to make it stand out as special.

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Oct 27, 2010

    Bad Jumping On Point Not the greatest place to begin reading this comic. I've never been shy about saying "I'm not a Wonder Woman fan," but there have been a few WW things here and there I've liked. This book wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. I'd actually say save your money and buy Superman: Earth One instead because this book was pretty forgettable. If you're still interested in Wonder Woman, but haven't been keeping up, pick up #605, when it seems a new story will start. Read Full Review

    If it is, as Ive hinted above, yet another game by that god who always has it in for Diana, then he is well within the established territory for this title. However, thus far the mix of arcane mumbo jumbo and military might has been a rough, uneven ride. Read Full Review
