    Carlo Pagulayan, Sean Parsons, Jason Paz and Scott Hanna give us some dynamic artwork, the aforementioned battle is just glorious, that helps to tell the story. There's great facial work and distinct backgrounds which are legitimately important in setting up the two threads we follow. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 27, 2017

    Robinson seems well versed in the various layers of Wonder Woman's mythology and is setting up an elaborate arc to play off her history. That's a good sign that readers could be in for another lengthy, memorable and entertaining run. Hopefully this creative team continues building on this promising start. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Sep 27, 2017

    This issue reminds me of the Earth2book before Robinson left and it was turned into anther Batman and Superman book. Its well thought out, providing stability for a character that has gone through some creative changes of late, both in her own book, and in different interpretations in the books in which she is featured.

    Welcome back to DC Comics James and your return marks a stellar beginning for Wonder Woman that I for one cannot wait to see where and how it unfolds. Your partner in artistic crime Carlo Pagulayan also captures the wonder and majesty of Wonder Woman with some brilliant panels, splash pages and action sequences that makes the next chapter of Wonder Woman a very captivating one and more importantly, very enjoyable. Hopefully with James back, let's hope he continues on Wonder Woman (I never thought he would write her) for awhile and also be offered a more classical Justice Society of write! Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Christina Hamlet Sep 29, 2017

    The current arc is off to an interesting start and Im enjoying both the art and the story but I worry that Diana is going to suffer from a perpetual identity crisis. For now though, Im looking forward to the next issue! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jeff Sep 27, 2017

    The first issue of James Robinson's "Children of the Gods" story is promising. Great pencils, color, and dialog propel this mystery by picking up previous threads from past stories and jumping into the unknown. I have no idea where this will go, but I can bet that it will be exciting. Read Full Review

    This is a solid start to this new run. The story is interesting with gorgeous art. There's a couple of fun action scenes and it's a pretty enjoyable read. I have some minor quibbles but I'm excited to see where Robinson takes this. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jan 28, 2018

    Carlo Pagulayan is excellent here. His Hercules loos like Henry Cavills Superman! The fight is well-choregraphed even-though it was brief and did not show as much struggle as I would have liked. I did enjoy his Wonder Woman who vaguely resembles Gal Gadot! Read Full Review

    AIPT - Daniel Levine Sep 27, 2017

    James Robinson starts his "Children of the Gods" with a prologue to setup the big threat in this story, albeit without much action involving Wonder Woman herself. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Sep 27, 2017

    The art is gorgeous and the plotting is great, but the dialogue leaves a bit to be desired. It's either unnecessarily detailed or just contrived. It's not a bad read at all, though, so I recommend it. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #31 offers a mostly satisfying start to a long-awaited DC Rebirth storyline. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Amy Ziegfeld Sep 28, 2017

    Wonder Woman #31 is a decent start to what will hopefully be an entertaining arc. It's not especially original and doesn't distinguish itself much thus far, but the execution is solid and there's potential for something interesting here. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Sep 28, 2017

    This is a good comic, but it lacks what Ive come to expect from a Wonder Woman comic, and I worry about where its going. I am still interested in the implications of Grail and Darkseids roles in this story. I do recommend it. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Chelsea Stanford Sep 29, 2017

    Robinson just does a really good job at making the characters speak in a way that tells of their past, their current situation and sets the tone for the rest of the arc to unfold in the appropriate manner. Coupled with Carlo Pagulayan's amazingly detailed work, I have high hopes for CotG to continue on in the same vein as the recent Wonder Woman stories have: to be completely and irrevocably in beast-mode.

    A measured, though not entirely memorable, opening of the "Children of the Gods" arc. Read Full Review

    While I'm all about this story and can't wait to see what we get next, I have to tell ya.......... there's not a lot going on in this issue than the bare minimum of set up.  The art is great though and I'm happy as hell that this is the direction that we're going with in Wonder Woman, I just hope to get something with a little more meat to it next issue.

    The Beat - Kyle Pinion Sep 27, 2017

    . I'm still not convinced that this is a story that needs to be told, but I'm at least more willing to hear the argument, which I think maybe says a good deal about either the quality of the issue or my general desperation for readable Wonder Woman comics. Read Full Review
