    In Wonder Woman #44, the god of war discovers that even deities can't move the world if they don't have a firm place to stand. Diana's world is coming apart, but in truth that is nothing new for her considering her history since the beginning of the New 52. More importantly from a reader's perspective, Meredith Finch's story is breaking up with two distinct plots vying for space and attention in an already crowded book. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #44 is a good entry that stumbles a bit along the way. But with a promising finish and a worthwhile interpretation of our heroine it's clear to me that this title that does enough right to warrant attention and a even recommendation. Read Full Review

    That leaves us with the story. London does not grip me as the new stomping ground for Diana. The city setting does not immerse me more in the story the way it is written; it just feels like AnyCity USA, so I don't get the need for it to be a thing that she is now operating out of London. The primary villain in this arc, some whiny disgruntled cast-off offspring of one of the Olympians, just does not feel like a threat. OK, so somehow he got hold of arrows forged in Hephaestus' smithy. But in one panel the guys is talking about going to play Arkham Knight on the PS4, then he shows up in the last panel as if we are supposed to believe this guy is a total bad ass. He's inexperienced, unproven, does not really know his powers, and is armed with some special arrows (which will eventually run out), and he's taking on the new god of War. He's about to get his ass kicked, so we can please just get on with it and move on to the next arc? Read Full Review

    Overall the issue is ok, there's nothing bad about it at all. It just doesn't feel vital for the story arc, and there's nothing that makes it stand out enough that it's a “read” or especially a “buy.” Wonder Woman feels like a ship with a destination, it's just taking a not very exciting route.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 16, 2015

    While I've been loving this Wonder Woman run, this issue is really lackluster.  From a new character not introducing herself , a willy nilly pick up that leaves us wanting more, to a backstory that doesn't do anything for the actual story.  It's just not all that interesting really, but luckily for all of us Wonder Woman fans, the art continues to be spectacular and at least you can find some sort of satisfaction from that.

    The dual storylines of Wonder Woman and Donna Troy are proving to be an awkward fit for this current arc, and the handling of those two disparate narratives is unfortunately not the only thing awkward about this issue's story. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Marcus Orchard Sep 18, 2015

    It seems that every time a small issue is corrected in this run, another one returns with severe magnitude. Wonder Woman #44 has the worst dialogue in the series so far, especially while Donna is London. David Finch has improved in some areas on art, but not enough to make this issue worth reading at all.
