    This is a great issue. Wonder Woman gets to be both bad ass and compassionate which is very important for the character. The art is great and there are some really interesting things happening in the story. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman had some slow going as Rucka had to patiently set up the arc, but now that it's coming together, it's become a rewarding reading experience. Read Full Review

    Diana and Steve finally arrive where Cale's team is stationed, the entrance they believe to be to Themyscira. Diana gets another confrontation with Cheetah, but while that's happening Cale's daughter heads towards the entrance and everything we thought we knew gets turned out. Evely yet again does an incredible job with the visualizations of our Amazon warrior. The fight scenes are scarce but look so good, from Steve Trevor busting out the choppa to an up-close, detailed shot of round 2 between Cheetah and Diana. You can't deny how good this book looks and reads across the board. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Apr 26, 2017

    This was a very tight issue, story-wise. Not much happened aside from an amazing cliffhanger teasing next month's continuation of the story. Sharp's art is just brilliant on every level, and Rucka's build-up begins to pay off here. Read Full Review

    Barreling toward the run conclusion with only one more issue of full Liam Sharp linework, Wonder Woman is pulling all the threads together and finally reaching the endgame: Ares. Rucka, Sharp, and Martin have played a masterful game this past year, and I both cant wait to experience its conclusion, and lament that time is running out on one of the most consistent and thoughtful series DC has published in years.

    Nerd Church Radio - Noah O'Tolle Apr 26, 2017

    This book was an exciting, fast-paced read and the action really ramps up as we head toward the conclusion of Greg Rucka's run as writer and Liam Sharp's as artist. Regarding the art, it was flawless and Liam Sharp's unique style will definitely be missed. Rucka spent many months developing Wonder Woman's supporting characters, Veronica Cale and Barbara Ann Minerva/Cheetah in particular, and the payoff was spectacular as they all converged on the mysterious twisted tree that has been plaguing Diana since her childhood. The dial has been turned on full blast with this story, and I cannot wait for what is sure to be the bittersweet culmination of Rucka's story coming up shortly in issue #25. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 27, 2017

    Rucka and artist Liam Sharp are content to maintain a slow, steady pace in this issue, drawing out the clash between Diana and Veronica Cale for maximum dramatic impact. If not quick to advance the plot, this issue does serve as both a strong character study and another great showcase for Sharp's storytelling skills. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Paul Mason Apr 26, 2017

    In some of my recent reviews I have critiqued the art, so first and foremost I find this comic gorgeous. I was hooked from the cover, a stark plain image of Wonder Woman finely drawn and detailed. Both on the cover and inside the issue she looks like an Amazon princess. So kudos to the fine work here. As expected from a Greg Rucker penned issue the writing is strong as well. I was saddened to hear he was leaving the title, but I suspect hell leave a fine legacy. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 26, 2017

    As usual, this book looks amazing, but besides for that and the cliffhanger, this issue really came off padded as hell.  Not much has been going on in the Truth story, but hopefully after the reveal of this issue that will change and this part of our Wonder Woman story can stand toe to toe with the amazing things we've been getting from the Godwatch part of his series.
