    Much of The New 52 has disappointed me, especially the travesty they are making of my favorite superhero, but Wonder Woman is one of the few DC Comics superhero titles that remains at the top of my reading pile every month. I can't wait to see where this brilliant creative team takes Diana and company next. Read Full Review

    Flip Geeks - Earl Maghirang Aug 21, 2012

    I loved this issue because of the added depth to other characters like Zola and even Strife. Most importantly there's an important supporting character in Wonder Woman's posse that shows his/her true allegiance. That betrayal alone makes it a really good buy. I'm actually glad that I picked it up again. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Aug 15, 2012

    First off, Cliff Chiang does an incredible job on this issue. I absolutely adore his interiors and the way he portrays movement in his art. It's really well done. As if we couldn't get another mind-blowing moment, Azzarello delivers in this issue. More than any issue before it, you will be guaranteed edge of your seat excitement page after page. It's all executed so beautifully. While not the best jumping on point into WONDER WOMAN, I still think this is a comic every DC fan should read as it pertains to the future of the DC Universe.

    If you've never been a fan of Wonder Womanbefore, then this is the time to check out the character and see why so many reviewers and fans are raving about what this creative team has done. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #12 is a key point in Azzarello and Chiang's take on the character. Story points that have been building since issue one come to fruition. That said, issue 12 is as much a beginning as it is an ending. It sets up the book's next story and teases events that, no matter how far down the road they occur, promise to make for some very interesting and compelling stories. Azzarello has already played with Wonder Woman's origins for her New 52 incarnation. After seeing what happens during her fight with Artemis, coupled with that amazing tease on the last page, I don't think Azzarello is done tweaking the character. I never read Wonder Woman regularly before this series so I'm not attached to any particular version of the character. I feel the way Diana is represented here is one of the more compelling characters in the DC universe. Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang have not only made me really enjoy Wonder Woman, but now I'm impatiently waiting for the next issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Aug 15, 2012

    So many plots threads come together in such poignant ways that after my initial read through, I read it two more times just to see how Azzarello did it all so masterfully. There are themes of birth, freedom, loyalty, and spirituality that all wind together with the art to create visual poetry. DC is putting out a fair number of strong books, but with this conclusion to Birth Right, Wonder Woman crushes them beneath her boot. Read Full Review

    This arc may not have given me anything I expected, but it gave me everything I hoped for a Wonder Woman story and more. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Aug 19, 2012

    I'm still thrilled to know that there's a Wonder Woman book on stands that is worth reading, and Azzarello and Chiang do not disappoint in the twelfth issue of their run. There's a new order of things in Diana's world, but things are far from over. As we move into year two, I'm excited to see what comes next, which is definitely a good thing. Read Full Review

    "Wonder Woman" #12 is exactly the right way to close out the first year of this comic (and the upcoming second collection, "Wonder Woman: Guts"). I'm just as much a fan of "Wonder Woman" now as I was a year ago, and that's thanks to Azzarello, Chiang and Akins. As always, this is a must-read. Read Full Review

    As said, this issue closes off the first year of stories effectively, but there's an enormous reveal at the end of the issue that'll fuel any DC fan's interest in what is to come. Let's just say there are plenty of “Kirby Krackles” to look forward to in the future, as Azzarello is setting the stage for the use of some characters I've been patiently awaiting to arrive in DC's New 52.

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Boren Aug 16, 2012

    If this is your first issue of “Wonder Woman” then I'm sorry, you are probably horribly confused. If you picked up the first few issues and left for whatever reason, try hopping back on with this anniversary issue. Many of your questions from earlier on in the year should be resolved, and you will be just in time to get a front row seat for the insanity that will hopefully ensue. Read Full Review
