    Steve Trevor lets Jason know how little he is trusted. Diana is attempting to force the information out of the Female Furies. Just what does Darkseid have planned? Read Full Review

    The artwork for this issue was pretty decent. There were moments that stood out more than others; such as the chaotic scene on the third to last page. I love the use of a fractured image to imply that they all got grabbed by the portal. The swirling nature is nothing new as far as representing portals goes, but the fracturing was new. I liked it. Plus there's plenty of dramatic poses, and as per usual Diana gets most of them. Read Full Review

    The issue ends with the promise of another showdown, so do yourself a favour, and pick up this issue so that you are not lost when issue #44 hits the stands. Robinson has an opportunity to stay in the high rev range all the way to #50 and silence those who are still pining for a Rucka return. Godspeed Jimmy. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Joshua Page Mar 28, 2018

    While Wonder Woman #43 does not answer every question about Darkseid's plans or even where Jason got his powers, it is a fun issue. There was a moment where Trevor mentioned that Amanda Waller had offered the services of the Suicide Squad to him. That would have been an interesting crossover event, had it played out that way. However, allowing Trevor and Jason's relationship to grow a little more added extra depth to Jason's development as a character. He wants Steve Trevor to trust him and he is willing to do whatever he needs to earn Steve's trust. In the final events of the issue, Wonder Woman #43 ensures that readers are going to see a lot of action in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Maite Molina Mar 28, 2018

    WONDER WOMAN #43 is a great build-up to the grand confrontation between Darkseid and Wonder Woman. However, Jason's characterization, as well as a lacking of Wonder Woman herself, takes away from the overall piece's potential. Read Full Review

    While the story structure and dialogue has improved, it's clearly a rehash of the last issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 28, 2018

    Wonder Woman continues to be disappointing and while the character dialog in this issue comes off better than previous issues........ it's still a padded out issue, where the only bit that really matters is the last couple of pages.  I love the art in this issue, but like usual....... that's really the only thing I love about this book.

    This issue isn't that bad but it feels superfluous. Outside of the ending, nothing is really accomplished. A lot of time is wasted on the fight with the Furies which looks great but feels hollow. The issue feels like the story is being stretched out and it ends up being a fairly boring issue. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Mar 28, 2018

    All in all, this issue felt like filler, and poor filler at that. By the end of the book, Robinson finally delivered on the promise of the teaser from the issue before, but its too little, too late. If this arc has any hope of being saved, the pace is going to have to pick up on the back half. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #43 is another issue of Robinson's run that not only completely lacks a compelling plotline, but shows a complete lack of understanding of its main character. Read Full Review

    Each issue of the current Wonder Woman run manages to accomplish very little in the least interesting manner possible. Read Full Review

    In this issue of Wonder Jason, Jason continues to revel in his newfound superpowers. He's so cool, you guys. He's so powerful now, he's even stronger than his sister (you know, whatsherface. I wanna say... Dina? Diane, maybe?). He's so powerful, he's still discovering new abilities!

    But Steve Trevor is not impressed! He doesn't want anybody hurting His Angel (swoon!). And, hoo boy, I wouldn't want to get on his bad side, because according to James Robinson, the guy is a top-grade enlisted Navy man, a government operative and (by logical deduction) the youngest Air Force Colonel in US history! He even hows how to defeat that Dana chick! Gosh, it's great to finally see some Strong Male Characters taking the lead in Wonder Woman.

    Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

    Here is what you get: Steve doesn’t trust Jason. Wonder Woman tries to get the furies to tell her what’s going on; and Darkseid wants relics from ARGUS so he uses his Stargate ( no lie it looks just like SG1) to teleport part of ARGUS to the Amazon Jungle.

    But the real question is: do I like it? Well, kind of... From an outside perspective, we get Wonder Woman and freakin’ Darkseid!!! We get Jason, Wonder Woman’s long lost twin Brother, Grail, Furies, and some killer fights. But it does just feel like something is missing.
