    A great installment that looks to set up a kick ass finale. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 13, 2017

    Carlo Pagulayan seemed inspired by the set up for this issue as he gets to constantly put Wonder Woman in action. The fight sequences were very strong. Jason Pas and Sean Parsons share inking duties, which likely led to some breaks in the consistency particularly during the Steve Trevor/Giganta sequences. The final page really left me excited and thrilled about what Robinson and Pagulayan have in store for next issue. Read Full Review

    Although James Robinson can get stuck in his Times Past stories at ‘times' but when he's on a roll, his stories are taken to another level and issue #36 of Wonder Woman delivers classic Robinson with some fun and at times predictable twists. Nonetheless, he channels the ‘wonder' of Wonder Woman and I'm eager to see Darkseid vs. Zeus in the next issue! Read Full Review

    This is a good issue. The action is a lot of fun and the art is gorgeous. Jason is a tedious character but the issue is still enjoyable and I'm looking forward to what happens next. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Dec 13, 2017

    The landscapes and backgrounds for this issue are absolutely stunning. Especially the first scene; the beach/forest that they are in is striking; it looks distinctly not of Earth (or an idealized Earth, at least). There were plenty of dramatic poses in this issue (I'm pretty sure every character shown got at least one, plus Diana probably got at least five, because duh). What little they showed of the fight with Darkseid was well done as well " I love the way they showed his energy (or specifically, how he was stealing Diana's energy). The best artistic choice for this issue was something unexpected; the flashbacks. They were done in this sort of watercolor effect that made them distinct and faded looking (picture the wobbling effect you'd see in TV shows before a flashback). It was perfect. Read Full Review

    Jason could do with a little more sense, Diana could do with a small time-out, and things are definitely getting more interesting. With so many heavy-hitters on the field now though, my only concern is that Diana might get lost in this mix again. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Christina Williams Dec 13, 2017

    With Jason's betrayal still fresh, Diana's anger gets the better of her. Grail, Darkseid's daughter, has Jason so far into her grasp, it's seemingly unlikely that he will break free. The art holds a nice fluidity that keeps you reading with ease. Emotions are running even more rampant than ever before, and there are still few answers to the multitude of questions we have. This arc will keep you guessing. Just what do the old gods want with the new? Why is Darkseid's daughter so adamant about taking Wonder Woman alive? Read Full Review

    While beautiful to look at, the characters' actions drag the issue down in quality. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #36 could have been a great issue if Robinson focused more on the emotional dynamic between the estranged siblings. Read Full Review

    We're back in the present in this issue and even though we have to reiterate things we learned two issues ago here, this issue is at least better than what we've gotten........ or any issue that takes place in the past for this run.  Yeah, we have a cool setup going on with excellent art all the way through, but still the majority of the issue was a bit boring when actually dealing with our title character and that's a shame.

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Dec 13, 2017

    This issue is so incredibly disappointing and could have been tedious to read save for Robinson's take on Darkseid and Pagulayan's stellar artwork. The events of this issue should have happened a long time ago instead of those awkward flashback issues we've been getting. I'm afraid the next issue will also be a flashback issue it Robinson follows his pattern. Read Full Review

    Another uninspired issue in a struggling run, but at least James Robinson isn't keeping us hanging for extended periods for plot developments. Read Full Review
