Wonder Woman's brother and sister are being held hostage by none other than Cassandra, the sadistic sibling she hasn't even met yet! And speaking of hostages, we're taking bets on how long chains can hold the First Born!

    If you read this for any reason it is because Azzarello means to tell a story. Action aside which can be exciting, he focuses on these characters to make them more than they seem on the surface. Self sacrifice, family, the mythic nature of it all is handled in a way that you forget that they are even gods in their own right to enjoy them as people trying to do the right thing. Especially Diana as you see her question her decisions as everything has a consequence given past occurrences and losses. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #26 is another small step towards the larger picture Brian Azzerello is building.  However, I enjoyed it more than the last couple of issues mainly due to the action and character moments and solid art. The pieces of the puzzle are slowly being put into place for what I hope is a stunning finale.  I just don't know how long we will have to wait to see it. Read Full Review

    This issue is very much a piece of a much larger puzzle. It builds on what came before it and propels the overall plot forward a notch. There's something sinister going on with Apollo up on Olympus, so it's hard to imagine what Cassandra will find when she reunites with the First Born. Wonder Woman, on the other hand, appears to be surrounded by characters she can't trust, and for the first time in a while she offers a poignant piece of dialogue that lets us see the world from her point of view. You've got to hand it to Azzarello -- whenever you think you've got his take on Wonder Woman figured out, he throws in a curveball. Read Full Review

    Diana is more powerful now than shes ever been, except that shes still missing control over that pesky thing called free will. She wants to protect her people, but they can go where they please and do what they like. Can she adjust to godhood quickly enough to match her fellow Olympians in their political machinations? Would that be a good thing for her? What the hell does Dio have up his sleeve? Are we on a Hellride or a Joyride? Im genuinely at a loss as to where this story is going. And for once, that isnt a bad thing. Read Full Review

    It may go against Azzarello's grain, but he has to start considering bringing a little more spectacle to this series, seeing how his plot developments bear less and less fruit with every issue. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Mark Povelaitis Dec 19, 2013

    Wonder Woman #26,written by Brian Azzarello and drawn by Goran Sudzuka, is a subpar issue with some great moments sprinkled throughout. Inconsistencies keep the issue from packing quite the emotional punch that it should have. Read Full Review

    I know a lot of people consider this the best run on Wonder Woman ever. Unfortunately, it's hard to argue that, considering the character has been plagued by lackluster runs and inconsistent depictions. And while I applaud it for being a different take on the character, I feel that overall the book is growing stagnant with too many similar characters… hell, too many characters in general. And not to spoil things, but Zola and that baby in danger again? AGAIN?! So while the issue is hardly terrible, the series overall is dragging and the art was just a little better than average.

    Id score the book way higher if I were just going on story alone. As I said, Azzarello is really kicking ass. Its just not a solid Wonder Woman issue, and its not the first. Read Full Review
