"HEART OF THE AMAZON" part four! No single bounty hunter would be enough to draw blood from Wonder Woman-which is why the cabal that's so desperate to get their hands on Amazon DNA has sent five!

    This issue confirms my suspicions about who, exactly, is literally out for Diana's blood while doing great character work. Read Full Review

    Every time I read an issue from this run, I just keep getting sad that Fontana isn't staying on for... ever. It's so good, gang, it's soooo good. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Christina Hamlet Aug 31, 2017

    Conclusion: Overall this has become a solid arc, exploring Dianas past and present, her convictions, her friendships, and her heart. After an uncertain startup, I am now looking forward to each new issue and the continuation of a satisfying story. Read Full Review

    This is Fontana's best issue so far. She puts the story in a context that is relevant and interesting while balancing it with cool action. The two artists are a great team and compliment each other well which leads to wonderful work. I recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Monica Archer Aug 31, 2017

    I would still recommend the Rebirth arc to anyone who enjoys Wonder Woman, but I wouldnt put Heart of the Amazon anywhere on my list of favorite Wonder Woman comics, and given her recent surge in popularity, I dont fully understand why that is the case. Read Full Review

    Nation Of Nerds - Jeff Aug 30, 2017

    WELL, there it is"Wonder Woman #29 is a conspiracy theory wrapped in a superpowered goddess. My chief complaint is with the almost too easy bit of plotting out a massive conspiracy. The art is probably the best out of this storys arc thus far. I loved the fight scenes and character interactions. Colors and lines remain consistent from page to page and didnt distract like they have in some parts of previous issues. Overall, however, I'm on board and happy to find out where this desperate need for Amazon DNA concludes. Read Full Review

    I'm hoping that's still to come for us readers to see as it will add another layer for this current arc and the friendship between Etta and Diana. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Sep 2, 2017

    This is still a pretty solid issue. The art isnt awful, even if it isnt particularly good. Wonder Woman is a great protagonist, and this story arc is an overall interesting read. This one maintains its recommendation. Pick it Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Aug 30, 2017

    I have said it a couple of times; I was never a big fan of the alternate stories timeline stories that accompanied the start of this series. Still the loss of the talent from this book is huge. Wonder Woman as a character, requires top-level talent.For me, the best artist drawing women at the moment is Stjepan Sejic and I for one would love to see him take on this book, coupled with the at times thought-provoking writing of Shea Fontana.

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Aug 31, 2017

    With just one issue left, Fontana merges the two halves of her run into a concise and intriguing package, but this could be hampered by the fact that her tenure has been so short; here's hoping that won't be the case. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 11, 2017

    I'm going to take a wild guess that the answer which the arc will eventually conclude will be a resounding No. However, the moral conundrum does offer a different kind of challenge for the Princess of the Amazons along with a entirely different view about what it means to be a hero. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    SnapPow.com - Harrison Rawdin Aug 30, 2017

    Wonder Woman #29 is a good outing that stumbles ever so slightly. The creative team delivers some noteworthy moments for our primary plus her supporting cast, but I wasn't a fan of the finish. Still the journey is wholly worth a purchase especially if you've been following along. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Paul Mason Sep 1, 2017

    On the positive side this issue opens with a lot of action . a price has been out on Wonder Woman and to open the issue she is brawling with some c level villains including catseye and Cheshire and plastique. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 30, 2017

    This issue of Wonder Woman does take a turn in the right direction with the narrative of our hero and the idea of the main plot of the story being revealed, but the steps we took to get there previously and in this issue come off hokey as hell and we spend too much time with filler to really get excited for what's to come.  I did really appreciate Shea Fontana incorporating aspects of Greg Rucka's run where she could to keep continuity because while she didn't have to, she took that extra step and that's another step in the right direction.

    AiPT! - Daniel Levine Aug 30, 2017

    "Heart of the Amazon" has been a good exploration of Diana's view of the world outside Themyscira, but the story's lack of a strong villain comes to the forefront in #29. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Aug 30, 2017

    This is the best issue of Fontana's run by far, and I hope she keeps up the momentum. Miranda's artwork was awesome, and I wouldn't mind seeing their art in the future. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 30, 2017

    The art hindered what shaped up to be the most exciting entry of the arc. There's an interesting twist to wrap up the issue though. I'm optimistic this story can rebound as it's started too strong to stumble now. Read Full Review

    The bad who Aug 31, 2017

    While definitely better than the previous issues in the arc, Heart Of The Amazon still feels awkward and forced on all aspects. The writing is sometime cheesy with uninspired one-liners, sometimes thought provoking, the art is at times wonderful but other times lacking details and inconsistent. It's like their heart wasn't into it so much, or if Fontana wanted to tell something, but endend up lost and telling something else instead. All the twists fall flat and every problem are too easily resolved. That's too bad because there is a lot of potential underneath all this. Let's hope the finale brings this all together and saves the day for Diana.

    This whole arc feels like I'm reading Wonder Woman extra lite. The story feels like it has absolutely no impact on Wonder Woman as a character, and the writing feels like that of a fifth grade fan fiction project. While there are a few cool moments of art in this, Heart of the Amazon is a low point in what has otherwise been a fantastic book.
