    "Wonder Woman" just gets better and better every month, and I'm already mentally allocating space on my bookshelves for a collected edition in 2012. Thanks to Azzarello and Chiang, "Wonder Woman" isn't just good, it's a must-read. This is, by far, one of the roaring successes of the DC Comics re-launch. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Dec 21, 2011

    Azzarello's unique directorial style calls for an artist with gifted hands and Cliff Chiang has triumphantly risen to the occasion. The pages are filled with women who are beautiful yet strong, settings that are atmospheric and detailed, and supernatural elements that emerge wondrously out of reality. Chiang's ability to create a strong visual tone with creative and consistent characters has been a wonderful treat that has kept this series as one of DC's best. Read Full Review

    It's still too early to make conclusive judgments about this series, but so far, it's a powerful, brilliant rendering of DC's first lady and her world. Read Full Review

    This is a comic the gods might not be crazy about - they aren't exactly shown in the best light - but the mortals out there should enjoy it. Read Full Review

    Last month's cover would have been more appropriate for this issue (if the statue hadn't looked far more like Diana than Hippolyta), but I don't wish for them to be switched because this one is just so good. Diana's face appears mirrored in a pool of blood, screaming, as Hera, cloaked in her peacock cloak, wields a bloody sword. This is by far the best cover of the title so far. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chris Kiser Dec 26, 2011

    Azzarello and Chiang's Wonder Woman clearly isn't for everyone, possibly not even for some of those who have enjoyed the series' previous volumes. It's a somber story that demands patience from its readers, often initially seeming to give you less food for thought than it actually is. Casting preconceived notions aside, however, it's clear to see that this is the product of two creators operating at a high level. Bravo to DC for taking a risk on an unorthodox choice for this, ensuring that this one slice of the 52, at least, is in fact new. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - T. A. Ewart Dec 22, 2011

    While I'm hopeful that Azzarello and Chaing will have a good run, this issue makes me question if they want to do the aforesaid at all, or if this is just another assignment. Read Full Review
