    Dynamic and effective it does a great job of putting you in Grail's mindspace. The colors are distinctly hers: dark greys, blood reds and deep blues. The facial work as well is on point, with each godling being distinct, and Baby! Darkseid being the cutest little demon ever. I seriously don't appreciate him being so adorable. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #33 was another great read by Robinson and even though there are a few cliches and over the top dialogue (e.g. at times he channels Darth Vader as Darkseid), it was still a great insight into both these characters and I for one cannot wait to see how this story pans out… not to mention the anticipated return of Darkseid. Supporting the story is artist Emanuela Lupacchino who creates some very lifelike panels filled with detail and emotion, not to mention a very mean childlike Darkseid. All in all, it's another impressive issue from the team as we're given another piece of the puzzle. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Oct 25, 2017

    This may very well be one of the best Wonder Woman comics ever written"that doesn't actually feature Wonder Woman. She's spotted in a scene or two, but that's about it. Despite missing the Amazonian ass-kicker from its pages, Wonder Woman #33 is a well-crafted comic that does a fine job kicking off an exciting new arc. Wonder Woman fans will be pleased with this one, even though they won't get to catch a glance at their favorite Amazonian warrior. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Oct 14, 2018

    Emanuela Lupacchinos art is in line with the work of previous Wonder Woman illustrators since Rebirth. She can draw a coastal Greek village as well as high-tech helicopters chasing Grail and Darkseid on Northern mountain tops. Her figures are as solid as her backgrounds. With great colouring by Romulo Fajardo Jr., the art is enhanced to new heights. Read Full Review

    A well-done summary of the villainous side of the 'Children of the Gods' arc, with a hefty dose of situational black comedy. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #33 is a good story with good art to compliment it, and it does a great job at setting up the next issue which I'm sure will be just as good, if not better. Read Full Review

    Another solid issue from James Robinson, who is doing everything in his power to get us to care about this storyline. Though he still has a ways to go. Read Full Review

    This is an okay issue. The story feels like a waste of time. Nothing is moved forward in any way and no new information is learned. However, the art is gorgeous which helps the issue quite a bit and is worth taking a look at simply for the art. I recommend waiting for the trade on this issue. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Oct 26, 2017

    The family dynamics for both Wonder Woman and Grail, as dysfunctional and divine they may be, create a unique appeal that feels right at home in the bizarre, lecherous world of Greco-Roman mythology. Wonder Woman still embodies the higher values that mythos, but Grail is set to embody the worse. The fact she can do all of this without being the bitter offspring of Zeus makes that feat all the more remarkable. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 25, 2017

    For some reason it was decided that the third issue into this arc needed to be a prequel to what's been going on so far and I don't know who's idea it was, but besides for two small pieces of information, this entire issue didn't feel needed at all.  Thankfully though, the art was amazing so at least it had that going for it.

    I'm really struggling with this book. Since Ruckas run ended the series seems to be casting around in all directions to find its identity. There is nothing really bad about the book, its just.bland right now. The current arc seems to be less and less about Diana and more and more about other people around her, shes become almost a spectator in her own book. Bring Wonder Woman back, team, ultimately shes who were here to see. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 26, 2017

    Don't expect an immediate follow-up to last issue and the long-awaited meeting of Diana and her twin brother, Jason. Writer James Robinson instead tackles an interlude story that explores how Grail and Darkseid fit into this conflict. Needless to say, it kills the momentum this story had generated in its first two issues. Read Full Review
