    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 19, 2014

    Amazing issue of Wonder Woman, delivery, impact, and ending. Never have I anticipated the next issue to come more than right now. Azzarello really knew what he was doing constructing the way things played out up to now. Wonder Woman has been turned into a character that you can look up to for the choices she makes, and the way you relate to the situations she finds herself in. The way Diana has been humanized has done nothing but wonderful things for the potential she now holds. There really is no questioning right now why Wonder Woman is one of the best books out there from DC. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Mar 20, 2014

    Wonder Woman #29 is a fine feature that exudes accomplishment and we still have quite a few issues left until this saga comes to a close. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 19, 2014

    It's no mistake that Wonder Woman has been one of the New 52s shining lights.  Azzerello and Chiang are so good and everything they have given us in past issues is beginning to pay off.  if this is any indication of how their run will end, it will go down as the definitive Wonder Woman for years to come.  It is that good.

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Mar 20, 2014

    With new stakes introduced, an action-packed plot, new character developments, and a huge decision by Diana at its centre, Azzarello and Chiang show us all how you kick off an epic climax to a big arc. Take note, this is how its done, folks. Read Full Review

    To say much more would give away too much, so I'll just place my usual reminder that this series is not for young readers at all, and that I'm anxious to see how it all ties together. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Dan Gehen Mar 23, 2014

    Despite the handling of these characters, the focus remains on Diana and what she will do in the face of a seemingly unstoppable foe. With the First Born taking control of Olympus, Diana finally accepts her title as the God of War. Despite following our heroes retreating from battle, this moment is resoundingly triumphant and earned by the creative team, accentuated by the reveal of the surviving Amazons and a restored Hera. The changes that Azzarello and Chiang bring to our characters, along with the promise of a climatic battle in the coming issues, should make Wonder Woman #29 an easy addition to anyone's pull list.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 22, 2014

    Hot damn! All the most recent build-up in Wonder Woman hits the tipping point, and the final page of the latest issue kicks off what could be the greatest story the New 52 has yet seen! Azzarello and Chiang are leaving soon, but I remain confident and excited that they're going to go out like rockstars! Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Michael Hale Mar 23, 2014

    What else can be said by now about the art of Cliff Chiang? Amazing work. Amazing character designs. Amazing effort feels poured into all aspects, from Dianas weapons, the First Borns gruesome body, and to the colors and styling Chiang and Wilson collaborate to A+ impact. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Mar 19, 2014

    Once again, the belle of the ball is Cliff Chiang. His gorgeous interiors (and cover, for that matter) make Wonder Woman the smoothest, prettiest comic on the stands. The last page alone is worth the price of admission. That paged, coupled with Hera's mighty return to the ruins of Olympus are the kind things this series does better than anyone. It makes you pump your fist and cry in pain because you have to wait another 30 days for the next issue. Wonder Woman is great from issue to issue. But as a series? When you take the thing as a whole? It's damn near perfect. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Zach Wilkerson Mar 21, 2014

    It's quite redundant to point out at this point, but very few books remaining from the original New 52 launch have managed to sustain such a high level of quality. Brian Azzarelo and Cliff Chiang are creating a definitive run, and it's issues like this one that prove it as such. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Mar 26, 2014

    A not entirely unsuccessful attempt to capture the epic feel of the early parts of the series, though our heroine still doesn't seem an integral part of it. Read Full Review

    ScienceFiction.com - Jason Motes Mar 23, 2014

    All in all, though this issue was a little slow, a lot was revealed and a lot more was set up for future issues, so it actually ended up being a pretty important issue. Read Full Review
