    WONDER WOMAN continues to be the stand-out of the New 52 that does not get the credit it is due. This is a phenomenal series that only gets better with each passing issue. The battle between Wonder Woman and First Born is coming to a head, and she's going to need all the help she can get. The creative team really makes a huge impact here and the ending isn't shocking but it will lead to some seriously cool moments in the next issue. Overall, I highly recommend this issue.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 18, 2014

    Wonder Woman #32 continues the great run of Azzarello, Sudzuka and Chiang.  The Battle for Olympus is on and both sides are already reeling.  While this issue is not new user friendly, I beg you to read it.  This run is one of the best ever and it's ending soon.  Plus, it has Bondage Minotaur.  Enough said.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jun 18, 2014

    Wonder Woman #32 is pretty much the beginning of the end for a fight that was inevitable since the start. What better way to show how serious this is than to bring Gods, Amazons, and the Sons of the Amazons together fighting for the same cause? It's hard to say that this will ever happen again, and if it did it wouldn't be for a long time after. What comes after this is uncertain, but it's clear by the looks on everyone's faces that the moment has come whether they are ready or not. Read Full Review

    Anyone who feels this series has been moving too slowly of late will be pleased by the way Azzarello blends character drama with big action. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jun 19, 2014

    Wonder Woman #32 is exactly the type of comic book it needs to be. With solid pacing, competent visuals and a solid cliffhanger this series still stands tall as one of the best the New 52. For that reason it easily comes recommended. Read Full Review

    While you might wish that the DCU at large felt the reverberations from this story a little more, it's pretty impactful on its own. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 21, 2014

    This issue itself was pretty neat. Azzarello continues to do an amazing job with his cast of gods. Cupid and Artemis' journey into Hell was just as eerie as one would expect, and the fight in Demeter's lair was gnarly. It's a little annoying that the First Born is so unstoppable, but I guess that's the point of a Big Boss. Watching Wonder Woman face off against him to let the others escape was as cool as could be expected, and the knowledge that Orion has returned in the nick of time is just plain cool. I'm very excited for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Dan Gehen Jun 19, 2014

    Brian Azzarello's script is a delicate balancing act positioning pieces for the final battle and delivering an effective dose of fist-pumping moments. Diana has brought together the Sons and Daughters of Themyscira, tasking Hephaestus with providing armaments for their upcoming battle with the First Born. Azzarello deftly cuts the tension with humor courtesy of Diana's appointment of Zola and Zeke's protector. This feat is repeated once more as the issue closes, as a bleak situation is turned upside down thanks to the return of a fan-favorite character. The well-balance script combined with the art make for another satisfying chapter in a definitive run for Wonder Woman. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Derek Baker Jun 20, 2014

    Is it safe to say this is one of the greatest runs on Wonder Woman? It surely appears to have shaped up that way. Wonder Womans war with The First Born will hopefully be a defining moment for the character. If this issue is any indication, it will be. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran Jun 19, 2014

    This is still a well crafted comic with a compelling story and good art, but it's also still a comic where the Queen of Themyscira is a supporting role. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Jun 19, 2014

    Part of these problems stem from the art, normally a huge bright spot in this series, but there's so much going on in this issue that things get muddied. There's a battle scene where the First Born shows up out of nowhere and it could have been executed much more clearly with greater impact. If DC wants my advice (and hey, why wouldn't they?) I'd give the closing issues of the arc a higher page count, let the art team give it a chance to breathe and not have to sacrifice clarity just to get all the story beats in. It's still a gorgeous book to look at, though, and special mention has to go to colorist Matthew Wilson, who just kills it this ish. Read Full Review
