The mega-opus "Odyssey" proved too big, it needed two extra issues to tell J. Michael Straczynski and Phil Hester's full story! It's classic Wonder Woman versus the new one! Even if she wins, she loses!Retailers: This issue will ship with two covers.

    There are scenes in this book that are incredibly intense and will leave you at the edge of your seat. The story is incredibly interesting, and it's also not like any Wonder Woman story I have read before. The simultaneous internal and physical battle that takes place in this issue is almost poetic, and it's really beautifully executed. I was definitely impressed with this issue and I look forward to the next one, and to seeing the Wonder Woman we all know and love return to us at last. Read Full Review

    Man, this is so weird... I mean I absolutely hated the beginning of this storyline, and with good reason... It was Wonder Woman, listening to an Ipod, carrying on conversations with a talking cat for god sake!! It was horrible! And then something happened halfway through the story... J. Michael Straczynski moved on to other projects and left Phil Hester to finish out the storyline from his notes. And from that point forward, the story really picked up. I don't know if it was Hester who should be credited with the turnaround, or if JMS would have done the same if he had stayed on the series, but I'll be damned if I didn't start to really enjoy this storyline! That just goes to show you, even when you're reading a storyline and have zero hope for it, it MAY just do a complete 180 and surprise you! Unless we're talking about Brightest Day, which, as we all know, sucked throughout. Read Full Review

    This is the Wonder Woman issue I've been waiting for since “Odyssey” began. It will in no way change your mind about the storyline itself if you've determined it's not for you, but if, like me, you've been following dutifully along (no doubt gnashing your teeth in frustration the entire way), this issue may help alleviate some of that irritation. It took 13 issues, but we finally have a fully formed plot and motivated villain! Huzzah! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 28, 2011

    Wonder Woman #613 does what needs to be done to transition Diana from a story where her history has been retconned to a story where EVERYBODY's history has been retconned, and it does it successfuly, earning 3 out of 5 stars overall. I kind of wish that this issue had more room to breathe, but given the meandering pace of the previous 12, I can appreciate getting a sense of urgency into the book" Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 27, 2011

    All those complaints aside, Phil Hester doesn't completely lose sight of the emotional center of "Odyssey". This issue celebrates the core of who Wonder Woman is and what she means to the world. Once the reader dives beneath the initially confusing continuity and explanations thrown out, those deeper aspects shine through. The sentiment is much appreciated, even if the execution could have been better. Had this issue and #614 been combined into one, the results would likely have been far more appetizing. But perhaps Hester will justify the extension as he delivers the final cap to "Odyssey" next month. Read Full Review
