    This series, and its reboot experiment, is at a tipping point. This issue has at long last laid some good groundwork, and has the potential to be the jumping off spot of a fantastic storyline. If they take the Diana they've created here–the dark, violent one–and show us the journey she takes on the road to becoming the wise and compassionate (but still ass kicking) Diana we know from the other books, this could be an amazing ride. Of course, it could also fall flatter that JMS's “Grounded” storyline, but right now, this issue has made me extremely optimistic. Read Full Review

    J. Michael Straczynski and Phil Hester, saviors of the Amazons? Maybe. This is the best Wonder Woman has been in a long time; I mean, its readable. The fact that I even bothered to keep reading has to count for something. Im excited for the next issue and I havent felt that way in a long time. The Amazons are going to fight Ray Harryhausen-esque skeletons! Im still waiting for the change back to the old outfit. At this point in the comic, its just being tossed in our collective face at every turn. But until that day comes, Im happy to sit and enjoy the exertion of Dianas repressed violent, Amazonian anger.

    Hester is doing very well with what Straczynski left behind, but I must say, I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do on his own. He's proven already he can write Diana " let's see how he does when he plots her as well. --Blake M. Petit Read Full Review

    Clearly this series is in need of further sorting out when it comes to art assignments. Luckily, the transition between writers has gone much more smoothly than anticipated. "Odyssey" may not be the massive and all-encompassing revamp Wonder Woman has been needing for so long, but it is at least an engaging story that does go some way to modernizing and streamlining the character.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 29, 2011

    Either way, as much as parts of the issue were quite good, it didnt really pop as a must-have issue. The art is well-done, but nothing to write home about, while the story gives us our first real glimpses of the big bad in action, something that Ive been hoping we would get for a couple of issues now.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jan 27, 2011

    There is a sense of direction beginning to settle in on this book. The sense is here, but not the direction itself. Diana is still very much a puppet in her own title, but Hester is a good writer and he has some solid toys to play with here. I'm interested to see where this book goes once Hester gets it more fully under his control. A reliable artist would certainly help make this book more Hester's own title. Hmmm. Maybe Hester himself could step in and multitask an issue, providing script and art. That would help to get it back on track, right? Read Full Review
