    Wonder Woman #20 does its own thing " outside DC continuity " and it does it well. Nobody takes an issue off on this title. Read Full Review

    Stash My Comics - Leo Johnson May 16, 2013

    This issue is not so great for new readers. While there is some background on the events, very few characters or events are adequately explained. While it's a great issue of a great series, it's not right for a new reader. Pick up the other 19 issues, and then jump in. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey May 15, 2013

    One of the unsung heroes of this series is colorist Matt Wilson, whose cool and collected style has been a trademark since the beginning. Wonder Woman has a look all its own, and a large part of this is due to Wilson's work. He brings a pop sensibility to every page; a bright color palette that seems small at first, but almost unfolds before your very eyes. In fact, the main reason the rotating art scheme of the DC overlords works is because of Wilson's superb coloring. It's brilliant stuff, in just about every way. Read Full Review

    So hopefully writer Brian Azzarello is ready to move on to bring this to a close - the adventure is getting mighty thin. Read Full Review

    In true Azzarello fashion, the final page cliff-hanger leaves you aching to know what happens next. As your fingers attempt to turn ghost pages that don't exist, you may find yourself looking for any hint or clue as to what is going to happen next, because you can guarantee that it's going to be a real doozy.

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee May 16, 2013

    The characters have been good and interesting—War is still this mysterious old man and Poseidon gives me the creeps and Hera is as fabulous as can be (considering that she’s mortal now), so it’s certainly one to keep a reader entertained, but this issue has certainly picked up from the last couple of issues. There’s good action and mystery and the pacing feels less choppy and more solidified. Certainly a great comeback issue for anyone who’s been in and out of Wonder Woman—it has enough pick me up action to feel justified in getting the issue. Not a dull moment this time.

    Multiversity Comics - Zach Wilkerson May 17, 2013

    The lines are finally drawn. On one side we have Apollo and the Olympian gods, on the other the First Born and his cyborg companion Casandra. In the middle, Diana leads her rag tag army, with the safety of her world and a small baby, possessing a dubious destiny, hanging in the balances. Though this individual issue As all the twisting plot threads begin to come together, it looks as if Azzarello is building towards a brilliant climax. If he can match the quality of the brilliant “season finale” of issue #12, then fans have quite the treat to look forward to. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills May 18, 2013

    This was a fine issue of Wonder Woman's story. Nothing particularly special or deep about the issue. It's just a fight while a bunch of the other characters talk to one another, moving pieces around the board as Azzarello continues his epic story. Issues like this one probably read a lot better in the connected edition, when you don't have to wait a whole month for the next chapter. But I'm not all that worried. The fight was fun, and it's good to see Wonder Woman actually being Wonder Woman, I suppose. The rest of the gods remain mostly fascinating to read, and their constant political shifting is a definite highlight of this series. So yeah, keep reading Wonder Woman, it's still good.

    Newsarama - Vanessa Gabriel May 16, 2013

    The first few pages of Wonder Woman #20 are graced with Cliff Chiang's beautiful art. Matt Wilson's colors are a perfect compliment. That ride is short-lived, because most of the issue is drawn by fill-in artist, Goran Sudzuka. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Nat Webb May 20, 2013

    All this isn't to say that fans of the current incarnation of Wonder Woman won't find anything to like in this issue. For those dedicated to Diana's supporting cast, there's an intriguing hint of backstory for Lennox and a nice Olympian power struggle. Wonder Woman herself gets a few pages of full-on slugfest, made interesting by her unwillingness to remove the armbands that dampen her true power. Overall, though, "Wonder Woman" #20 feels a bit like a filler issue: the pieces are here, but not much is done with them, and the writing, art and editing all feel like a race to the newsstands. With a bit of tending, this could become a strong book, but DC needs to make a commitment to provide its flagship female character with stronger art and a bit more direction. Read Full Review
