Hades and Poseidon both have designs on the kingdom their brother Zeus left behind, but Wonder Woman doesn't intend to let their turf war decimate the realm of man! It'll take a big lie and some help from the mystery man known as Lennox to stop a holy war from breaking out but what does Lennox know that Wonder Woman doesn't?

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Feb 19, 2012

    While a plot twist like this might be hard to pull off, Azzarello's narrative is smooth, easy to understand and compelling. In Wonder Woman, it comes down to the minor details that really sell the story; Hermes explains how the concept of imagination is nothing more than beings attempting to understand that which they do not; Lennox's off-handed "God a'mighty" causing all three present gods to respond, "Yes?"

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Feb 18, 2012

    This really is the best version of Wonder Woman we've seen in quite a while. Like Batman (as discussed the other day), this really isn't a comic for kids - but for those mature enough to read it, this series is highly recommended! Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #6 is a book that comes easily recommended. If you've been enjoying this series thus far, Wonder Woman #6 will feel right at home for you. If you haven't been reading Wonder Woman, purchase the previous five issues and catch up. It's totally worth it. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Feb 20, 2012

    The art is vibrant with nice attention to detail. Azzarello has some serious cojones for taking on the Watchmen prequel. Nevertheless, his work on this series has done wonders for a wonderous woman who could kick my and your asses in a heart beat. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Feb 19, 2012

    The series, of course, has a lot of integrity, but you can't help feeling that we're only still just building up to the real big moments. Besides, the art isn't quite up to its usual par. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Feb 20, 2012

    "Wonder Woman" #6 seemingly does away with one threat (or delays it) and introduces another in a fairly smooth transition. Azzarello's writing is playful and wonderfully structured with plot movement coming from characters instead of external events. Six issues in, "Wonder Woman" is still one of the best titles of the New 52. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman has becomes Azarello's vanity piece, and he needs to be taken off of the book, immediately. Give him his pay and send him on his way. Read Full Review

    Of course, by the end of the issue, she's traded one annoyed god for another, and has to go pull Zola's scrawny non-fat out of the fire once again, although this time, it's the fire of the underworld. Maybe Azzarello's intentionally obscuring things - making his readers do the legwork to figure out what's going on means they have to pay attention and not treat his work as forgettable. Or maybe I'm just dense and slow on the uptake. Either way, Wonder Woman isn't my usual bag, but I'm thinking of making room for a new bag. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Feb 19, 2012

    Azzarello continues to bring his A-game, but Wonder Woman suffers without Cliff Chiang's masterful presence. Fortunately, he'll be back next month to pick right up from this suspenseful conclusion. I can't wait. Read Full Review

    Diana uses her superhuman strength to force open the jaws of Cerberus. Too bad Cerberus didn't actually try to eat her in the issue; that would have--God forbid--been interesting. Read Full Review
