"Godwatch" part four! Veronica Cale will do anything to save her daughter. If that means destroying the Amazing Amazon, it's a small price to pay.

    Greg Rucka's run on Wonder Woman in coming to an end, with only three more issues left for him to pen. So far this is everything I could have hoped for in a Wonder Woman comic, with her returning to her true roots. With the stage set and the story almost finished I will be waiting to see how these two arcs come to an end. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori May 10, 2017

    Ultimately, whether or not this is an important moment for the series or simply another chance to blow out some of what makes each woman so complex is up in the air. But Rucka, Andolfo, and Fajardo have delivered a tight story with strong characterization that leaves me eager to see how the artists first issues with incoming writer Shea Fontana will turn this book upside down. Until then, onward in two weeks for a much darker confrontation for Diana and Cale with Ares. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church May 15, 2017

    As we get close to the end of Rucka's run on Wonder Woman, its great to see that character development is still taking priority over big actions scenes. Wonder woman #22 delivered a good first meeting between Diana and Veronica that highlighted both their differences and similarities. Andolfo's art and Fajardo's colours make the art standout as one of the best issues of Rucka's Wonder Woman so far. Read Full Review

    While I enjoyed Mirka Andolfos issue, I missed Bilquis Evelys handling of this issue. Her replacement created a break with the rest of the story by making Wonder Woman look like a young woman almost like an airhead. There was a lack of majestic demeanour in her interpretation. Andolfos work is fine but it was not the right tone for this story. Read Full Review

    Overall this is a good issue: smartly written and character focused, but the shift in tone of the art is a bit jarring. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon May 11, 2017

    This issue serves as a stepping stone towards the finale coming forward for these two simultaneous story arcs taking place and all that's left is to see how it all ties together. Rucka's track record is more than enough proof that we're going to get some deep developments for our Wonder Woman. Read Full Review

    The relationship between Diana Prince and current adversary Veronica Cale grows a little more nuanced and compelling with each new issue. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 10, 2017

    This isn't an essential chapter to get fresh insight on Wonder Woman's longstanding foe, but the breezy pacing makes for a quick and easy read even if it's largely inconsequential. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Daniel Levine May 10, 2017

    Wonder Woman #22 provides a quick background story on Diana's first meeting with Veronica Cale, but it's just slows down the "Godwatch" story. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Noah O'Toole May 10, 2017

    With only two issues left on Greg Rucka's run on Wonder Woman: Rebirth, I expected more answers to the mystery behind Diana's memories, but instead was given more plot exposition. However, it was still a very enjoyable book. As a decades long Wonder Woman fan, I was not impressed when Rucka created Veronica Cale back in 2003's "Wonder Woman #196". At the time, she felt like female port of Lex Luthor to function as a Wonder Woman villain. Now, as we approach the finales, the care and development Rucka put into establishing Veronica as less of a Luthor clone and more her own character is one of the most compelling reasons to read Wonder Woman. It looks like the next two issues will determine if all this was worth the wait. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti May 10, 2017

    In what felt like a filler issue, Rucka and guest artist Mirka Andolfo break the pace by telling a story that just didn't need to be told. Andolfo's art got me worried about her upcoming run on the title, but some sequences alleviated a bit of my worry. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 10, 2017

    Wonder Woman #22 started out fun, but after seeing the first meeting of Wonder Woman and Veronica Cale, it falls a bit flat.  The art was just okay and while I didn't hate what we got here, I expected more coming so close to the end of Greg Rucka's run on this book. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - John Jones May 15, 2017

    I don't think it was a horrible book, there was just not enough happening. It didn't seem like the issue was even needed for the Godwatch story arc it feels like DC just threw it in there. Read Full Review
