    This is a great issue. The story is interesting with several standout moments of dialogue and action. The art is gorgeous and the issue is just a lot of fun. I highly recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 28, 2017

    This is a great comic. Those worried that the book would be greatly diminished by Ruckas departure can breathe easy Shea Fontana makes sure the comic doesnt miss a beat. It is a great read and comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 7, 2017

    Wonder Woman #27 may lack the same emotional impact of the previous issue, but it does open an interesting door about how Diana's powers can be stolen by others. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Daniel Levine Jul 26, 2017

    Fontana and Anfolfo's "Heart of the Amazon" Part 2 delivers a one-note villain for Wonder Woman, but features plenty of satisfying action. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jul 26, 2017

    Even if this book hasnt quite reached the heights of the previous creative team, there are plenty of reasons to stick around. Fontana and Andolfo are confidently approaching this arc and its resulting in some interesting stories so far. Read Full Review

    Nation Of Nerds - Jeff Daily Jul 26, 2017

    This is an energetic second chapter that moves the story along while always showing the dangers lurking and plotting against Diana. This arc has all the vibes of a superhero cartoon show, perfect for after school orSaturdaymorning (remember when that was a thing?). I love the pacing and characterizations Shea Fontana has written for Wonder Woman. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Jul 26, 2017

    We get set up for the upcoming issue but this story feels as if it served as a place holder. There's no overarching lesson either but more of an “another day, another person trying to justify doing some villain shit” approach for this story. These two issues still serve as a good short read for any Wonder Woman fan looking for a jumping on point or isolated story arc. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jul 26, 2017

    Unfortunately, there isn't much to talk about in this issue. With these two issues in mind, I might recommend that regular readers of this series should skip this and just wait for James Robinson's upcoming run on the series in September. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Christina Hamlet Jul 26, 2017

    If the story had been fleshed out more and given more motivation and meat to it, it could have been a solid start. But as it was, it was so generic it was barely worth telling, and seemed to be an excuse for a sequence of action scenes and some post-battle cookie therapy. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Noah O'Toole Jul 26, 2017

    If you read Diana's words with Gal Gadot's voice in your head it makes the book a little bit better. Still, not quite enough for me to make it a hit. The art is too anime and cartoon-like, and the story seems geared towards the "DC Superhero Girls" audience and not the adult comic book reader. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 26, 2017

    While I was all excited for Shea Fontana's run after reading the previous issue, this chapter actually made me pause and rethink that stance a bit because everything we get in this is a forced mess just to get us to our conclusion and because of that it came off really disappointing.  I still love the art overall, but even that came off confusing at times, but all in all I still look forward to what we'll get next, but this issue was a misstep.

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jul 26, 2017

    This is seriously what happens here. It is a major downgrade from Greg Ruckas Wonder Woman which regardless of its flaws was a much better comic. Its a pity that this is the best comic that is produced about Wonder Woman, DC Comics flagship character today. This issue was modelled after She-Hulks origin, however, the Marvel heroines story was created when such things were simpler. Read Full Review

    Nice art but replacement-level storytelling that doesn't really hold together. After three years of Brian Azz and a year of Rucka, they can do a lot better.

    Not a perfect issue, but I still do not feel this is as bad as some people are rating and describing it. It is a new Wonder Woman writer that is trying to stay true to the character while also bringing her interpretation to it. To me, while it has been simple, it has been a lighter and more fun read.

    Not a fan of the new art and I am lukewarm on the story. Flipside is that I buy this for my wife and read it because it is there. She is loving it and hates waiting two weeks for another "episode".

    I talked a lot of $#%& about Meredith Finch's short run on Wonder Woman but this is arguably worse... And even though the art isn't bad per se, it's cartoony style is kind of jarring especially coming off of Liam Sharp and Evely's beautiful pencils.

    So if someone is on steroids they will change back when tied by the Lasso of Truth? Sad and pathetic. The villain's motivations are weak, the story is very bad, get this rack off of Wonder Woman before any more crap comes out. At least wasn't as bad as the last issue. Not to mention how did she make a serum to stun an Amazon without an Amazon to test it on. Laughable. For a WW comic this mediocre. Do not read.

    This feels like a comic from the 70s, and I don't mean that in a good way. It was overly simplistic, the villain was laughable and the ending left me saying "Wait, really?" in the most sarcastic manner. I get that is tough to follow an act like Greg Rucka, but you would think since Gal Godot made Wonder Woman relevant again that DC would keep top talent on it. I really hope this creative team isn't around for long, they are slowly destroying what they just built.
