    The team impresses yet again with another incredible issue. The art was Evely's best on the series so far, and the inclusion of a new character brought a huge amount of freshness to the story. Veronica Cale's character is the most developed in the book, making her very sympathetic, which excuses the lack of Wonder Woman in this issue. Read Full Review

    This is a great issue. If you're looking for a lot of Wonder Woman, this issue might disappoint you. It is mostly focused on Veronica which is fine by me because this character's story is riveting to me. I love this tragic fall to darkness and it's being handled very well by Greg Rucka. There's a deliberate pace that is slowly turning this woman into the villain of the present day. The art is great as well. I highly recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Daniel Levine Apr 12, 2017

    With a combination of great art and and a wonderful introduction to Circe, Wonder Woman hasn't stumbled yet since "Rebirth" and part three of "Godwatch" doesn't knock it off balance. Read Full Review

    How this story wraps up in just two months time of course leaves me nervous, giddy, and impatient all at the same time. The depth of personality Rucka and Evely are delivering with Wonder Woman #20 makes me feel like were just beginning to scratch the surface on Cale, Doctor Cyber, and Circle, not to mention Dr. Poison, Cheetah, and the Gods. Godwatch is a revolution for Dianas foes, not to mention a wonderful extension of many oft ignored or abused female villains. Heres hoping theres much more to play with as stories converge and we move into year two of Rebirth. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick Apr 12, 2017

    With Wonder Woman #20, it's time to ask the big question; month in, month out, is this DC's most consistently brilliant title? Ever since the title relaunched with writer Greg Rucka at the helm, the series has been moving from strength to strength, redefining the title character for the Rebirth era as one of the most relatable and enjoyable icons in super hero comics. And all this right before her movie opens. And this issue is emblematic of the kind of strong creative vision that has made the title both innovative and classically enjoyable. Read Full Review

    This is a slower issue than many others during this run, but it's stuffed full of really intense, human moments that are communicated perfectly through the art. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 12, 2017

    It's back to the Godwatch story and it's a wicked, evil, good time!  Greg Rucka gives readers a great combination of character and dialogue and Bilquis Evely makes it all look great.  This issue is just another reason why I love the earlier part of the story that Rucka is telling.

    The creative team's take on Circe also impresses, with the villainess showing just the right blend of understandable, human drive and otherworldly menace. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Apr 12, 2017

    We're going to be getting more set up here for the big finale of God Watch. Rucka hasn't disappointed in the last arc and is great at tying the knots on storylines, making them all come together. Wonder Woman remains in the hands of the creative team that's got her at the best she's been at for years. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Noah O'Toole Apr 12, 2017

    Even though this is Wonder Woman's book, Greg Rucka has made the stand-out stars her supporting cast. Adrianna Anderson, the new Dr. Cyber, has become one of my favorite characters because of her sarcastic humor and witty comebacks. I find myself having empathy for Veronica Cale, who is supposed to be the big villain, and any Wonder Woman story that involves Circe is a blast to read. While you can easily pick up any issue and start reading, I definitely also recommend picking up the trade paperback as Rucka has weaved a really deep tale about Diana discovering her own truth. The art really shined bright for me in this book as well; every panel was full of detail. Read Full Review

    It feels like this entire arc is merely the set up for something much bigger. Read Full Review
