Weve seen the history Wonder Woman shares with Ares but what does the God of War have planned for her future?

    The issue is great not only because it closes the chapter in the current arc in a way that is interesting, but also in a way that is really easy to follow and clear for readers to understand. I think it's fantastic that Azzarello has been simultaneously building this "First Born" story over the course of the last several issues, setting up the next story arc while closing up this last one. The art is, once again, really well executed and even though we have two different artists on this issue, the result is is still very fluid and easy to read. I am definitely looking forward to the next arc as well as the dynamics between the characters moving forward. The next issue may very well be a good place to start the series. Read Full Review

    The Pop Cultist - Josh Elliott Mar 21, 2013

    Brian Azarello writes an action-packed, charming and exciting climax to this storyline, and all the artists are paddling in the same direction to deliver a thoroughly entertaining Wonder Woman #18. Read Full Review

    As the series goes forth, we'll be seeing more of the First Born as well as more New Gods, so I'm expecting the next six issues to be rather awesome as we head to the conclusion of year two. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Mar 20, 2013

    Wonder Woman #18 is an outstanding comic book that once again proves the strength of the creators behind this re-imagined property. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Colorist Matthew Wilson deserves applause of helping hold the thing together, too. It'd be nice if a single artist could have produced this issue, but these four do a solid job in the face of what could have been a complete mess. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 23, 2013

    Orion continues to be a standout character in this series. He and Wonder Women have a lot of great scenes, especially that ending, which is adorable. It's a wonderfully happy ending as the bad guys are defeated, War comes through in a pinch and Zola gets her baby back! The last page is just delightful, with Wonder Woman's big family of supporting characters all gathered around the baby. It's been a long journey getting to this point, and it's nice. I doubt the story of this baby is really over, but I'm excited to see where things go from here. And I hope Orion sticks around. I actually, for once in my life, am interested in a New God.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Mar 23, 2013

    An appropriate resolution with a satisfying finish, but without much substance or development to back it up. Uneven art doesn't help, either. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Mar 22, 2013

    "Wonder Woman" #18 is a bit of a let-down, if only because the series on the whole is normally so much stronger than this. Hopefully next month will pick things back up again, but for a book that is normally great, a just-average issue is a real disappointment in comparison. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Victor Correa Mar 22, 2013

    Wonder Woman is a book that is a whole lot of fun. There are great characters and amazing dialogue. This issue however suffers from an unexciting battle and an even less exciting ending. However, Azzarello, as mentioned before, has been developing a much greater narrative than what's been resolved here. Read Full Review

    Oh I'll keep reading. Wonder Woman has had some crappy runs in the past and I kept reading. But this book really needs a fresh start. This one storyline meandered for nearly two years only to end poorly. I'm ready for a new beginning. Read Full Review

    Heretical Jargon - Heretic Mar 21, 2013

    It's a disappointing issue that does a good job at a few insignificant things, but fails in so many other ways. I'm not going to drop Wonder Woman, but this issue in no way will get you excited for what's to come. Read Full Review
