In these tales that tie in to the upcoming Warner Bros. movie Wonder Woman 1984, when a failed burglary attempt causes a hostage situation at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, Diana Prince is forced to leave her teenage tour group behind so that Wonder Woman can save the day! But will Wonder Woman be able to bring 10 gunmen to justice and get back to her tour group in time? And in a second story, it's the eighties, and greed is good-as long as you already have it all! Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor hunt down the reckless mastermind who makes the ultimate power move by stealing Diana's golden lasso!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 30, 2020

    Simonson and Blevins were working in mainstream comics back in 1984, but they never had a chance to work with Wonder Woman back then. (Among other things, Blevins did Marvels adaptation of The Last Starfighter. Simonson was an editor who also created Power Pack.) Diana had kind of a low profile back then. It's a bit strange for the upcoming film to feature Wonder Woman in 1984. It was kind of a nondescript year for the character in the comics. The 1980s weren't terribly eventful for Diana until the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths moved things in a completely different direction for her. Obropta, Simonson and Blevins do a good job of showing a little bit of what might have been if the character had more of a presence on the comics page back in the early 1980s. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is definitely an issue Wonder Woman fans won't want to miss out on. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman 1984 #1 would work better had we actually had the movie. Still, it is pretty cool to see what will come. Also, I will never reject work by Steve Pugh. We all know that this book is going to sell like gangbusters. It should. Still, overall, this is fun. It was meant to be fun and it succeeds. Sure, there is some context missing, but I will forgive it and so should you. Read Full Review

    A title aimed purely at the more hardcore Wonder Woman fanbase or possibly casual readers who will look for a fix around the time of its release! Whilst its not a wonderful book, it does have nice charm and minor thrills for fans! Read Full Review

    The book that broke to Soyboys on the internet cause of an ugly variant has finally come, and what have I heard about it? Nothing, guess it really is all talk and no bite. Nevertheless, this book is not very good at all.

    With the first story, the writing was full of cheese, the story wasn't nothing special, the kids were forgettable, if you really want to read this cause of WW84, then knock yourself out. Even then I can't ensure you that this was worth the money. Art is decent, and the book for something that connects with the WW84 (I guess?), it stays true to Diana's character. But for me, its just another unmemorable 18 pages to the pile.

    The second one was like a WW story for kids, like kids under 8. The art is ki more
