The last time the First Born came for Olympus, it took the death of the God of War to stop him. And if Wonder Woman is now the God of War...and if the First Born is more determined than ever to claim his birthright...then things are about to get VERY violent indeed!

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Feb 21, 2014

    All in all, this was probably one of the series strongest issues. It encompasses everything that I love about this series, in terms of writing. We get stellar characterization of Wonder Woman that serves as a reminder as to why shes my favorite superhero, along with great character moments for the rest of the supporting cast. We get some great plot progression that thickens the plot in a good way, and leaves readers on an excellent cliff hanger. We get even more of the mythology that has made this book so interesting from the start of the run. And, on top of all of that, we get an issue that is done fully by Cliff Chiang, and, as a result, this book is gorgeous. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 21, 2014

    Wonder Woman #28 is great.  It's not user friendly, it's not easy in easy out.  It's a book that builds on every issue that came before it, but if you put in the work you will be rewarded with one of the best books in the New 52.  This issue is just another brick in the wall.  Highly recommended.

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Feb 19, 2014

    Cliff Chiang and Goran Sudzuka handle art this issue, and Wonder Woman looks amazing, naturally. The characters have an insane amount of personality in every panel. The way that Dio walks, the way that Moon hunts. You can almost read this thing without even looking at the words. Plus, guys, that freaking Minotaur. It will haunt my nightmares, that is for sure. It's a simple design, but a grossly effective one. Wonder Woman is always a pleasure to read and that's thanks to the awesome work consistently pumped out from this creative team. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman continues to improve with each issue, remaining one of the top-tier of all of the books in DCs line. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Feb 20, 2014

    I cannot say this enough Wonder Woman is the best title DC Comics is publishing. From beginning to end, Brian Azzarello, Cliff Chiang and Goran Sudzuka hooked me into the story that was unfolding in Wonder Woman #28 and never let go. I cannot wait to see what happens now that Wonder Woman has to fight in order to save Zola and Dio from another force other than the First Born. At the same time we are given an excellent cliffhanger with the conclusion of the First Borns battle with Apollo atop Olympus Tower. If you have not been reading Wonder Woman I highly implore you to change that and begin catching up through the trades. This is by far one of the most entertaining comics youll find on a monthly basis. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Dan Gehen Feb 20, 2014

    Herein lies the strength of Wonder Woman #28. Azzarello and Chiang have several plates spinning throughout this issue, and not once are they in any danger of dropping one. This is a dense issue, packed not only with big action, but character moments as well. Chiang's additional nuances and personality traits"along with his bombastic action sequences"are a perfect marriage to Azzarello's script. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Feb 20, 2014

    This is the issue where you feel the most drawn in. The First Born is more determined than ever to claim his birthright, Cassandra is making progress, then Wonder Woman and her friends are still trying their best to keep up as there is a stake for everyone in this fight. Making sure there is a clear motivation for these characters is what keeps it strong. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Troy Wheatley Mar 4, 2014

    Should DC's premier female character have more prominence in her title? Maybe, but it is more important that she has good stories written about her, and Azzarello and Chiang have made readers interested in Wonder Woman that have not been interested in the character for years (or ever). It is the dark reflection of the post-Crisis George Perez reboot of the Amazonian princess, and for the most part it works well. Although next month, Azzarello might have one of his overly subtle issues and I may go back to being utterly confused by it all again. At least the art always looks cool. Read Full Review

    Comics Refueled - ironmarco Feb 20, 2014

    Chiang and Wilson made this issue a pleasure to look at and Azzarello continued to expand his new mythology. While this issue was a little slow it did set up some important plot points and it built tension towards the larger narrative of the series. The issue includes some great interaction between the gods and other mythological characters and the cliffhanger at the end will be sure to get you pumped for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Feb 20, 2014

    Wonder Woman #28 suffers a bit from plot elements that feel redundant, but the lasso of truth compels me to admit that it entertained. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Feb 21, 2014

    "Wonder Woman" continues to be an endlessly compelling story about a rock solid hero at the center of a dysfunctional family for which she continues to find ways to remain unfazed. It's a shame that the end is near. Read Full Review

    We're getting close to a big conclusion, but the set-up has been so dreary that you tend to doubt if it'll all be worth it. Read Full Review

    A new issue of Wonder Woman? Sure, why not! Every single issue of this series has been an enjoyable ride, and the new issue is no different. That's not a complaint, at all. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Michael Moccio Feb 19, 2014

    While the story may not have been up to par with what we've come to expect with Azzarello, Chang and Wilson push the art far enough to still make the issue an enjoyable read. Hopefully Casasndra and the Firstborn will gain some much needed three-dimensionality in the coming issues to give Wonder Woman and the arc the finale it deserves. Read Full Review

    But, it wasn't horrible by any means. There's lots of action, so that's somewhat satisfying. The art (mostly) by Cliff Chiang looks great as usual. I just sort of want to shake things up a bit. Read Full Review
