"SWAN'S SONG" part one! Vanessa Kapatelis thought the world of Wonder Woman-nobody had treated her with more kindness after the accident that shattered her life. But tragedy wasn't finished with Vanessa...and she's come to believe that the woman she trusted most is the author of everything that happened to her!

    This is an incredible issue. With the Darkseid War stuff out of the way, it really feels like Robinson can tell a story now. And this is a wonderful start. Vanessa is a terrific villain so far and I'm really excited to see where the story goes. The art is gorgeous and really drives home the emotion of the story. If you're not reading Wonder Woman, this is a really good place to start. Read Full Review

    The first chapter to this new arc is as intriguing to read as it is beautiful to look at. Read Full Review

    Robinson may have made too good a case for this arcs villain, but the story has promise. Im intrigued by how this initial clash will play out. With Lupacchino on board, Wonder Woman hasnt looked this good in months and this title continues to be a worthy and unpredictable read. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jan 10, 2018

    This is a very simple set-up issue, where we get to see the origin of this new version of Silver Swan. I like the character and her backstory and motivations, and I hope she'll impress me again two weeks from now. The issue's momentum is almost cut short by the extended lecture to Jason by Diana, but the ending makes up for it. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Jan 10, 2018

    As per usual the artwork for this issue was pretty decent. There were little details in particular that I found myself loving, like Vanessa's drawings or the concept art for her costumes (both the hero and the villain versions). They're both elegant and striking. It's a perfect concept, really, as it allowed for an easy transition from one to the other with just a simple color palette change. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 10, 2018

    This issue is beautifully drawn and written and the biggest problems with it are that we don't get enough.  Yeah, that's a silly problem, but seriously though, the pacing was a bit off from the past to present day stuff in that we don't really know the amount of time and I hope that this is rectified in following issues, where I hope to get more backstory on our villain.  Besides that though, the biggest problem is Jason being in this title, which is crazy because I wanted him here for almost two years and now that I've got him, he's the worst part of this book.

    Comic Book Corps - Jason Saba Jan 10, 2018

    Robinson's story is well written as he skilfully dovetails two recent events into one by the conclusion of the issue. Lupacchino's Diana is tough and beautiful and she manages to make Diana and Jason easily look like brother and sister. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Christina Hamlet Feb 5, 2018

    This was a solid start to a story, despite the awkwardness of Jasons party shenanigans. Of all of the arcs since Ruckas run ended, this is the most promising. Im looking forward to the new take on Vanessa and how Diana is going to handle her troubled friend. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Christina Williams Jan 13, 2018

    This issue marks the change of a massive arc, and it promises to keep the momentum going. The art is wonderful and expressive of how each character truly feels. We even get a newer glimpse into how Diana feels about Jason. I am looking forward to seeing where this arc will lead us. Robinson has a way to make you want to root for the characters even when you have no idea how they will tie in yet, and I appreciate that talent. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 10, 2018

    This isn't a good book, and it's barely even a Wonder Woman book. I will say the art is the best it's been in a while, but it's 100% wasted on this story. Read Full Review
