    "Godwatch - Epilogue" brings Wonder Woman, Cheetah and Veronica Cale in a final confrontation where they come to terms with the consequences of their choices. It's an essential part of Rucka's run on Wonder Woman. Read Full Review

    This is a great issue. The art is beautiful throughout, whether it's an action scene or just characters talking. I love the epilogue nature of this story but it doesn't feel tacked on or unnecessary. It's important to the story to feel the weight of everything that has happened. I am excited to see where these characters go next. I highly recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review

    While Rucka sneakily makes Cheetah one of my favorite characters, Bilquis Evely makes everything gorgeous with artwork that is clean and crisp, giving us clear emotional beats with facial expressions that tell the story. Romula Fajardo Jr's colors compliment the story perfectly, enhancing the little details like Etta's freckles and Diana's armor and using shading to make the eye go exactly where he wants it to.

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Jun 14, 2017

    Cheetah was the real MVP for this issue. You're not going to convince me otherwise. Rucka has been building a thicker and well mapped out history between Diana and Barbara Minerva that's way more solid than what we've seen from previous incarnations of Wonder Woman history and mythos. Evely and Sharp continue to bring that road map to life from the various stages of their interactions throughout the years. When we talk about the dream team of creative pairings for Wonder Woman, this is the crew that will be argued to the front of the line. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jun 14, 2017

    This was a pretty powerful penultimate issue for Rucka's run. On one hand, I can't wait to see how he resolves it, but on the other, I don't want the end to arrive so soon either. At least this is a tremendous read while I make up my mind. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Jun 14, 2017

    One more issue and I know it wont be the happy ending every story about a fairy tale princess normally gets. Because ultimately, I think Rucka, Evely, Sharp, Fajardo, and Martin owe us the truth. The world isnt fair, and is far less fair to queer women of ambition than almost anyone else. But I dont know that Id be satisfied seeing this historic run end any other way. It concludes with The Truth after all. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jun 16, 2017

    Bilquis Evely offers us her last issue on this marvelous run. I will really miss her. Her Wonder Woman had pleasant pulp qualities. She does not look as nave as Nichola Scotts Wonder Woman. But she feels anchored to the comic book genre, instead of being cinematic, like Scotts. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tim Montoya Jun 14, 2017

    Now that the overall story has been completed for both Godwatch and The Truth, Wonder Woman #24 serves as the epilogue of sorts for both. Showing us what happens after Diana and Cale return from Themyscira. With Steve rejoicing at Diana's return, only reminding Cale of what she has lost after 10 years of effort. Rucka yet again does an amazing job at showing character motivation and emotion in closing out a lot of the loose threads here. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jun 14, 2017

    This issue was quite sublime. Rucka does a great job at tying up some loose ends and setting up character motivations and story beats for other writers, or himself eventually, to take on in due time. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 15, 2017

    Rucka's characterization is rock-solid when it comes to both leading women and Cheetah, who arguably suffered more than anyone in this arc. And all of that misery serves a valuable purpose, with Rucka reinforcing the notion that Diana feels love and compassion for all, even her most bitter of enemies. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Jun 15, 2017

    Wonder Woman #24 is a bittersweet reminder of just how good Rucka's run has been. The characterizations have been great, with some excellent focus on Veronica Cale in 'Godwatch' and a tragic personal loss for Diana in Cheetah. Evely conveyed all the emotion within the story through her character's facial expressions, body language and raw brutality. Its good as a single issue alone, but serves as a fantastic penultimate chapter. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Andrew Bistak Jun 14, 2017

    Wonder Woman #24 is a satisfying conclusion the Godwatch story line with some great character moments and exceptional art. It will be sad that Greg Rucka is leaving Wonder Woman but its also exciting on where the new direction will take us. All in all, it's a strong issue from Rucka and co! Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Noah O'Toole Jun 14, 2017

    Rucka reinvention of the Cheetah has been a highlight from theseries and this issue sets her up to be a consistent villain in Wonder Woman'sfuture. While this issue didn't addanything of substance to the overall story, it demonstrated Diana's vastcapabilities for love and forgiveness. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 14, 2017

    This issue seems stuck between the big reveals of the Truth finale in issue #23 and the big over sized finale up next.  Greg Rucka does give us some nice character moments, but also rushes some characters out of the book.  I loved Bilquis Evely's art, but if you are on the fence, just wait for Greg Rucka's last issue in two weeks.
