    Brian Azzarello and Goran Sudzuka deliver another exciting issue withWonder Woman #25. The title continues to be one of the best DCU books out today, with interesting characters, a deep and labyrinthine plot, and the occasional epic showdown. If only Cliff Chiang could stick around for more than issue at a time! Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Nov 21, 2013

    Goran Sudzuka has filled in on this title before, and it's always a treat when he does. His clean, detailed style looks fantastic in the Wonder Woman world. This issue is heavy on character moments, with the bulk of the pages dedicated to conversations as everyone tries to setup up their next move. Sudzuka handles this deftly, imbuing every scene with a sense of character. There are pages in this issue that would work without dialogue, you can read the motives on each and every character's face. That's no small feat. Read Full Review

    New 52 Wonder Woman, DC's best superhero, while not as great as Gail Simone's run, has proven itself to be one of the best runs of the said superheroine to date. I understand it's debatable, but for me, I don't care. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman seems to exist in its own universe. That is nice because it won't force you to buy other books connected to a massive crossover just to keep up with the story. The long running story arc, now at 25 issues, will make you want to pick up trades or back issues. But for now, the book seems to be under the radar. I found issue 1 for cover price just a few weeks ago. Read Full Review

    As always, Azzarello leaves you with plenty to keep you interested to see how the next issue plays out, though the issue in had is not as satisfying as it can be. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Nov 20, 2013

    This book continues to be a breath of fresh air not just in the New 52 but across superhero comics in general. As weve seen several excellent meldings of sci-fi and superhero, this book perfectly melds the fantasy genre with it, and thats a great deal tougher in my opinion. This is a great jumping-on issue for anyone whos been curious whether the book is worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Nov 20, 2013

    Another solid issue of Wonder Woman. Not too much going on, but this was an interesting set up for what is to come next. Wonder Woman's life has changed forever since killing War, she had no choice, though now she has another to make that will determine her future as a new God. This issue focuses more on her normal life than that as a God, given she doesn't want to replace War. She has evoked the wrath of War's sister who wants her head, and now her plan has been set into motion for her revenge. So much potential for this new story and we'll see if Diana can survive what is really a fight on two fronts, both unexpected. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 21, 2013

    This is the second straight filler issue with not enough Wonder Woman.  However, I really liked what we got here.  The character development and promise of future conflict are enough to give this issue high marks.  Things are building up to a head and I'm going to be so glad to be there when it all hits the fan.

    "Wonder Woman" #25 is ultimately a strong and on track comic. It's not the most riveting of issues to date, but it's still quite enjoyable and fun, and you can see how what's yet to come is being set up perfectly. Comics like this one are what make the best issues possible, with a careful lead up to those moments. Watching Strife's best laid plans all start coming together is great, and not only because that's what you get when you trust the goddess of discord. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Dec 2, 2013

    Outside of the ending, the issue has solid art and some good character moments that have been hallmark of the series. The "lunch" Apollo sits down for is one of the creepier moments in the series and further illustrates the ends to which gods will go to entertain themselves. While issue 25 is not the best example of how good the book has been since its relaunch it is still of high quality and leaves the characters in a place that will have implications for many issues to come.

    This issue was light on action, although we do get the fight between Hermes and Orion. It was more character building and set up, but I think that sort of thing is what makes things really matter when the fur does start flying. You've got to care about the characters and why they are doing what they're doing and why they take certain sides. It was a good solid issue, which may seem like filler, but I think it does a nice job accomplishing what the creators intended. Read Full Review

    It was nice to see Siracca again. I had forgotten all about her, so I'm glad Azzarello hasn't. He continues to handle this large cast well, giving everyone a little special something to do as things move along at this relatively slow pace. I don't particularly care all that much about Strife, so I wasn't really interested in her leading the issue, but it was all generally entertaining. It was also fun to see Orion again. I'm a big fan. But yeah, kind of a dull issue of Wonder Woman, but any issue of Wonder Woman is still a quality comic. Read Full Review

    Woman #25 is a filler issue that does little to engage the reader and serves mostly to set-up the next issue. Read Full Review
