    Word Of The Nerd - Hollie Cumberland Feb 20, 2015

    Whether she realised it or not, Diana has needed help to come to terms with what it means to be the God of War, a founding member of the Justice League, and a successful Queen of the Amazons, all at the same time, and that help comes in the form of her dearly departed mother. Her inclusion, as well as the inclusion of Batman and Superman, have made this an exceptional issue, and definitely one not to be missed. Not only that, but it sets the scene perfectly for a more action packed issue, one I intend not to miss. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Feb 18, 2015

    Wonder Woman #39 does just enough right in regard to the growing literary legacy of Diana in order to earn a sturdy recommendation from me. Recommended. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Tyler Sewell Feb 19, 2015

    I'm happily surprised at how well this issue went and it rejuvenated my enthusiasm for the series as a whole. The last two issues have really brought the quality of the series back up to where it should be. Next month is the penultimate issue of the story arc and it looks like it'll start with a showdown between Donna and Diana. This series is back on an upward trend. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Feb 18, 2015

    It is in the combination of this all that the story gets lost. It would seem that Meredith in trying to put her stamp on the character has gone for an all-out approach, throwing in every trick which she has, but it is not to the benefit of this series. Instead a better approach might be to consider each one of these roles separately, as such a juxtaposition is a bit much in under 25 pages. The potential for the character is here, and specifically rests it would seem in the Themyscira chapter, but as it stands the lack of focus is taking away from what could be accomplished here.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Feb 25, 2015

    Meredith Finch's stories are too short. That isn't because they are so good readers gnash their teeth in frustration at coming to the twentieth page of one of her Wonder Woman stories. Nor is it because David Finch's art is so glorious that readers spend four weeks dreaming of more after finishing each issue of Diana Prince's adventures. The stories are too short because they manage, in twenty pages, to say so very little. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 21, 2015

    Wonder Woman #39 continues to be a book that just doesn't get everything right.  I love David Finch's art, but the story is far from engaging.  It has the pieces to get there, they just aren't falling into place.  I hope they do because Wonder Woman fans deserve it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 19, 2015

    This issue's cover is a little too indicative of the problems with the current portrayal of Wonder Woman. She's portrayed as too weak in both body and mind - a far cry from the capable princess, heroine, and goddess of war she's meant to be. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Marcus Orchard Feb 20, 2015

    As always, there is so much potential for this series, but "Wonder Woman #39" disappoints. Hopefully all of the story and character issues will be ironed out in time, but it's hard to say that the art will improve. There is plenty to do with this series, especially with Donna Troy, but it feels like that is just a background story. The Finch's seem to be more interested in the Justice League, which is a shame, because Wonder Woman can easily stand on her own. Hopefully the encounter between Diana and Donna is interesting and not full of weak dialogue. Read Full Review

    The potential is there, but the Finches can't seem to bring that potential to the surface Read Full Review
