    This is a great issue. The art is great and engaging with a lot of fun moments of Diana kicking ass. Fontana's story is good with interesting thematic ideas and a solid character study of Diana. It's an enjoyable issue and I highly recommend reading it. Read Full Review

    Its interesting when an issue comes up for different characters, and we get to see their very different responses. "Heart Of The Amazon" has dealt, with subtlety and tact, with the issue of enhanced individuals and whether or not they are obligated to use their abilities to help others. In this case: Dianas blood, as it could hold the cure for almost all diseases. What makes this arc so thought provoking is that there is no easy answer: on the one hand, yes, Dianas blood is worth more than gold: the potential within it limitless and with so many diseases in the world (and so many more on the horizon) its hard not to see what it could be used for. On the other hand, there will always be those who would exploit Dianas abilities: at best using her blood to create super soldiers who, in some cases, dont have Dianas hard-won wisdom and innate understanding of the sanctity of life, and at worst would become nothing more than mindless weapons pointed at whoever stood in the way of Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Sep 14, 2017

    Wonder Woman #30 is a solid ending for Fontanas stint on the book, as well as an overall solid note in the annals of Wonder Woman history as a hole. It's fun and light-hearted, but still has some smart and interesting subtext. This one gets a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jeff Sep 13, 2017

    Overall, this was a fun story. It was not life changing. The art was inconsistent at times, but the writing was solid. If you want Wonder Woman to be more than a hero you got a few glimpses of deeper thoughts and feelings. If wanted action you had plenty of fisticuffs. The talk of what is coming next for Diana and her mysterious brother and writer James Robinson has detracted from this arc. I feel that is unfair. This arc has been sandwiched between big name writers Rucka and Robinson, but I think if you want a decent, action-packed, and even kinda funny Wonder Woman than this is the run for you.

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Sep 13, 2017

    Messina's work remains smooth and and vibrant, giving not only Diana but Steve and Etta a more youthful and spry look. It's hard not to see this small arc as a bit of a vacation filler before the upcoming story line dealing with Diana having a brother. However, the deeper question of “doing more” that kept reoccurring for the arc is still a good notch for the Wonder Woman mythos. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Daniel Levine Sep 13, 2017

    "Heart of the Amazon" comes to a strong conclusion, but the story can't escape the feeling of a rushed fill-in before a real major WW story. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Christina Hamlet Sep 16, 2017

    While the style of both the art and the writing are solid and enjoyable, the Heart of the Amazon storyline has been a rollercoaster of a story in terms of quality. The final leg of the journey was a sharp drop from last issue. I give it points for the team showing its capable, but theyre producing far below what I think theyre capable of. Hopefully the next ride will be more fun and a lot smoother. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Sep 13, 2017

    This was a fine issue, but this run was disappointing. I was excited to see what Fontana would do with it but it felt fairly generic to me. I'm sure a more younger audience would absolutely love this run though, so I'd recommend the upcoming trade to a younger friend or family member. Read Full Review

    The art and plot were shaky, but this issue has a strong payoff. It gets who Wonder Woman is so right that you'll be willing to forgive some of its problems Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Nicholas Palmieri Sep 18, 2017

    Messy storytelling concludes a disappointingly skippable arc, though the visuals are nice. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 13, 2017

    Next issue starts off James Robinson's run on the title. Fontana held the golden lasso well for most of her run, but it would have been more indicative of her efforts to end on a high note. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Andy Hall Sep 13, 2017

    I really want to see where Fontana plans on taking Wonder Woman from here. The art, however, has really been the downfall of this run. I would score the book higher, but honestly I am getting tired of DC and Marvel not paying attention to a fundamental element of their books. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 13, 2017

    Heart of the Amazon concludes with this issue and I'm left wondering what actually went down in not only this issue, but this arc in general because nothing really makes sense by the end.  The art seemed rushed at times and I'm just left wanting some decent Wonder Woman stories coming forward because I certainly didn't get one here.  Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Nov 6, 2017

    Ido appreciate David Messinas artwork. Its light and lyrical, yet at the sametime he conveys action and drama very effectively. Saida Temofontes letteringseems a bit girly for me, but thats just my personal observation. In a storywith quasi-military groups, I just expect something a but more utilitarian. Read Full Review
