    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Oct 2, 2014

    Wonder Woman #34 is an outstanding release that pleases its core audience from beginning to end. In the mighty world of comics there are character defining runs for almost any icon and there's no doubt in my mind that this will be one of those for our favored Amazon. Highly Recommended.

    Word Of The Nerd - Hollie Cumberland Oct 3, 2014

    With the Futures End story arc being released at the moment, it may be a while before the next issue, but with how the storyline has progressed so far, there is no doubt the finale is going to be spectacular. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Oct 3, 2014

    This is the quintessential modern Wonder Woman story. Azzarello and Chiang have beautifully constructed an instant classic that dives deep into not only Diana's mythos, but also the philosophies and morals of characters that don't get much exposure. To state the obvious, this issue is not to be read by itself as it continues a story that has been going strong for 34 straight issues. The only negative aspect of this series is that it's not very new-ready friendly, since there are never any "jumping on" points. You don't want to skip a single issue anyway, you're gonna want to read this whole thing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 7, 2014

    Great Wonder Woman issues are becoming old hat, but don't let it lull you into thinking this is anything but awesome.  The Battle for Olympus is nearing the end and it looks like Wonder woman and friends need a miracle to come out on top.  While it's so sad that Azzarello and Chiang are leaving the book soon, they are going out on top.

    Multiversity Comics - Keith Dooley Oct 3, 2014

    The usual slow burn of "Wonder Woman" makes way for a jam-packed wild ride of a penultimate issue in #34. All the elements that have made up the run by Azzarello, Chiang (as well as gorgeous occasional contributions by Tony Akins, et al over its run), and Wilson is distilled in this one issue: heart, action, intrigue, and inspired storytelling. The end of the month will be bittersweet when the final issue of Wonder Woman's exploits by Azzarello and company finally arrives. This team has brought so much to Diana's mythos. One can only hope that the new creative team builds upon the foundation that has been so firmly and intricately built. And those elephants need to come back toot sweet. Read Full Review

    It's always remarkable how many connections and layers you can find in Azzarello's script when you try, and this issue is no exception. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jacob Torres Oct 4, 2014

    There was a definitive end in sight when Azzarello and Chiang joinedWonder Woman in 2011.They came with a fleshed out and meticulously plotted story that would ultimately redefine the character's entire mythology for a new age. Just as with every issue before it,Wonder Woman #34 will continue to enrapture readers with a tightly woven narrative, masterful storytelling and world building that is some of the best in the business.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Oct 1, 2014

    Wonder Woman #34 marks the beginning of the end for this tale, and on the note we left off on in this issue you can tell things are going to get dire as we see our heroes endgame in action. The only fear at this moment is wondering if everything can be covered by the end of the next issue. We have been given no reason to feel disappointed up to this point, though how this tale ends is crucial to how this whole run will be remembered as we move on to a new creative team in issue #36.

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Oct 1, 2014

    This is a great example of how to build to a finale. The pieces are all on the board, theres a great, suspenseful cliffhanger, characters have undergone their arcs, but the solution to the central conflict is still very, very up in the air. Regardless of what that solution winds up being, Azarello and Chiang (as well as Wilson) will have solidified a concrete legacy for one of DCs more popular, oldest characters. Read Full Review
