"AMAZONS ATTACKED" part four! When last they met, Wonder Woman was robbed of a chance to meet Darkseid in single combat-and she's certain she'd be able to take him down. At last, she's going to get her wish-but with Darkseid at full power, is she still sure she'll survive?

    This is a really enjoyable issue. The action is great thanks to how strong the art is. The plot takes an interesting turn and overall, I had a lot of fun with this issue. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Apr 14, 2018

    This issue was light on character work, but still managed to work in a few satisfying moments while giving the audience the action it had been sorely missing the last few issues. If Robinson can continue this pace for the remaining issues of the arc, he should be able to deliver a pleasing conclusion that would make up for the weak start to the story. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Apr 11, 2018

    Wonder Woman is one of the Trinity that is DC. As such, her book and the talent on there, should rival both Batman and the upcoming Bendis explosion that is Action #1000. However, taking a step back, readers can see how much better Detectivehas beenthan Batman, with thelatter still having a couple of misfires, and Dan Jurgenscontinued work in the world Superman has impressed many. Robinson may not be the attention grabber that Greg Rucka was, but his Wonder Woman book can hold its own with the likes of James Tynion IV and Dan Jurgens and that is pretty good company to hang with.

    Impulse Gamer - Andrew Bistak Apr 11, 2018

    I really enjoyed this issue that had this summer blockbuster feel to it with some spectacular art by Emanuela Lupacchino who helps bring James Robinson's story to life. Robinson has a great grasp on all the characters involved, particularly Wonder Woman and her antagonist Darkseid. At times, the dialogue is a little clucnky but for the most part, Robinson creates an epic story with some of the greats of the DCU. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Joshua Page Apr 11, 2018

    Wonder Woman #44 is an exciting read that will keep readers entertained. It ends with a chilling cliffhanger that will make readers want to stick around for the next issue. As I mentioned before, this issue is action-packed. The issue primarily focuses on the action and little else. There are some references to Wonder Woman's shortcomings, such as being too weak to face Darkseid alone. It does seem that that very subject will be addressed in the next issue or in later Wonder Woman installments. Given the ending, it seems likely that Wonder Woman will face at least one of her fears in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 11, 2018

    Amazons Attacked lived up to its name this issue and the stakes definitely increased. The action and artwork make this one a solid read for readers curious to see how this all plays out. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jason Saba Apr 12, 2018

    I'm scoring this issue high, and it's mainly due to the art, but I am also enjoying the no nonsense plot too, and I know you will too. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 12, 2018

    Wonder Woman #44 is a fun comic. I cant take that away from it. Despite the narrative meandering throughout the runtime, the dialogue tripping over itself, and the pacings near lack of existence, Diana v. Darkseid makes this book tentatively recommendable. Its fun, and the artists do a great job of making the visuals presentable. Feel free to pick it up for a fun-if-shallow read. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Apr 11, 2018

    The artwork for this issue was lovely, as always. The fight scenes were well done, especially the one between Diana and Darkseid (I swear I'm not just saying that because I got to see her punch him in the face). The last panel was particularly striking and does a great job at making sure we'll want to come back for the next issue to see what happens. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 11, 2018

    While I love the art in this issue and find the fight that we get in it kind of satisfying, the overall issue was lacking, especially to where we needed to go by the end.  Hopefully things turn around for this series because it should be way more enjoyable than this, even though this is probably one of the more enjoyable issues that we've gotten in awhile...which isn't saying much.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 11, 2018

    . This is actually the least aggressively bad issue of Wonder Woman in a while, but that's faint praise " there very little that's good here, but there's also nothing that's actively insulting to the character. Read Full Review

    This issue simply should not be so tedious, yet it probably works best as a sleep aid. Read Full Review

    The artwork of this issue and the variant cover by Frisson are the only saving graces of this issue. Robinson's writing is absolutely trash. Read Full Review

    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.

    Parts of this arc just seem confusing to me. Like, why did Darkseid need to transport part of Argus to the jungle in order to start is “ Stargate”? I assumed they had the relics...
    And what exactly do the relics do? Do they just grant access to Themyscra? And why is Darkseid trying to get there? Does he want to change them all into Amazon-Lizard-Gargoyle creatures for his army? Why doesn’t he just go back to Apokolips? Again, I feel like we just have a ton of unanswered questions just to get Darkseid in the story.

    Basically, the story more

    This issue continues the trend of the previous ones. The writing just lets everything else down. There are a few good moments but not enough.
