    All in all, Robinson channels a great version of Diana and sure the dialogue is a little cliched at times but he creates some decent characterisation and an enjoyable story that is backed up by the brilliant art of Emanuela Lupacchino who really channels that comic book blockbuster… oh… and there's Darkseid!

    Wonder Woman #39 is an action packed issue that puts character work at the center of its narrative. Read Full Review

    If there is a moral to this arc, it's that your perceptions can become your reality, and if your viewpoint is focussed through a prism of pain and hurt, potentially that is all that you will see. In Silver Swan's case, she is looking to take out that hurt on the one person who would have ideally been there to help. With the separate viewpoints in play, both of which are valid to the respective characters, Robinson has cleverly given us an issue where there is no clear villain. Read Full Review

    The artwork was pretty decent for this issue, as it has been lately. I still love the design of the Silver Swan (but I said that already). It was nice seeing Diana have to fight a flying opponent " you don't get to see that every day. I particularly enjoyed the storm that Jason conjured " more accurately I love the way the artist chose to portray it. Read Full Review

    This issue provides a lot of clues about Darkseid and Grail's plans while further developing the tension between Diana and Jason. While the story chops and changes a little abruptly, the magnificent art does not miss a beat. Read Full Review

    This is an okay issue. The art is fantastic; the issue is worth reading just for this art. The writing is not as strong unfortunately. This disappointed me because I thought Robinson nailed the last issue and I was really excited about this story. The issue still works but I think it could have been better. Read Full Review

    If you are already reading the series, issue #39 won't really have much impact, but for someone like me who hasn't picked up a Wonder Woman comic in months there isn't much here to inspire me to stick around and see how events play out. For fans. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Christina Hamlet Feb 17, 2018

    The Silver Swan arc is still off to a good start, but its still just starting because of all of the side arc distractions. This still has potential to be one of the better recent arcs, well see what the finale brings. Read Full Review

    Not much happens in this issue, but it's got a pretty cool cliffhanger that has me excited for the next issue. While the story felt like it was on repeat for a while, in addition to the boring cutaway, the art almost made up for it. Read Full Review

    I'm a little worried this take on Silver Swan is too one-note. Hopefully Robinson has some other levels to explore otherwise Darkseids machinations are going to prove the most entertaining aspect of the Swan Song arc. Read Full Review

    While beautiful to look at, the lack of emotional weight leaves much to be desired for this issue. Read Full Review

    While I was really looking forward to this issue after what we got previously, I was a bit disappointed when the story felt disjointed, when progression seemed to come off panel and when I had no idea what was going on from the art at the end.  Thankfully though, the majority of the art was great and I love seeing the characters we get here, I just hope that things become more straight forward and spelled out as the arc continues.
