    Every single page and panel really is so good. It is the main reason I look forward to reading Wonder Woman every two weeks, but I cannot end the praise with just the dynamic duo and must extend it out to Ray McCarthy and Romulo Fajardo Jr. for their cleans lines and color choices on inks and colors.

    Things are never black and white in James Robinson's Wonder Woman and issue #45 delivers an action packed and unexpected story from start to finish. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Mary Swangin Apr 30, 2018

    Wonder Woman #45 is a decent wrap up to a pretty intense arc and the art pairs well with the emotionally charged nature of the issue. Now that the family drama has, seemingly, come to a close, it'll be interesting to see where it all goes from here. Read Full Review

    The artwork for this issue was fantastic. If I had to pick a favorite panel for this issue I'd have to say the one on page 12 was absolutely striking; with all of Diana's siblings being shown in a more ethereal form. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Joshua Page Apr 25, 2018

    Wonder Woman #45 surpassed my expectations with its thrilling action and an incredible ending. Robinson provides fans with a great run of Wonder Woman thus far. Though Wonder Woman #45 has a few moments that detract from the scene's urgency, overall, it's a great finale. It ties up several loose ends from many past story arcs. Though, if you were hoping to learn where Jason disappeared to at the end of the Swan Song arc, you'll have to wait just a little longer. While it would have been great to see just what happened with him, I trust that Robinson has something exquisite in store for readers in the future. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 25, 2018

    While there are some stand out moments in this issue, the majority of it felt rushed and forced to a conclusion that could have been so much more if the book didn't waste its time doing nothing for months and months and that just makes me angry.  Overall though, the art in this issue was great and I look forward to see what this sets up, but this issue just wasn't what I wanted it to be.

    The issue doesn't play for me. The art is great and the action is fine. There are some decent character moments as well. But the whole thing falls flat. This story has been built up for so long, since the end of "Darkseid War," and it doesn't feel like it added up to much of anything at all. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 29, 2018

    The art is quite good, but the story alternates between nonsensical and condescending, sidelining the main character until it intentionally mischaracterizes her. Read Full Review

    This issue qualifies as an ending and it alters the status quo, but it never offers a single reason for readers to care about any of it. Read Full Review

    This run will be concluding with Wonder Woman #50, and it can't come soon enough. None of the ideas here have served Diana well at all. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Apr 25, 2018

    All in all, the only thing the reader can take away from this arc is that it could have, and should have, been better. Robinson clearly phoned in this story, and it shows. All of the right ingredients were there, and it just fell apart in the end. As the next series of issues deal with fallout from Scott Snyders Dark Nights: Metal event, hopefully Robinson will be able to draw inspiration from the wealth of material provided by another superstar writer. Until then, readers will likely be stuck with the bad taste in their mouth from this arc. Read Full Review

    great issue!

    while I think "how she does it" is a bit cheesy, it is comics after all, so OK....

    but everything around that is great. I can't really stand the brother and still I was happy to see his part. I love where Grail is.

    even the art, which I have not liked as much lately, some panels were awesome.

    In Amazons Attacked finale Darkseid's plan comes into fruition and Diana and Jason are doing everything in their power to stop more amazon parademons from being made.

    We get some nice art, couple good fights, a little cringy dialogue here and there, a much needed reunion for Jason and a really interesting development for a former ruler of the Apokolips.

    But generally speaking I have a problem with James Robinson's work on Wonder Woman. On one hand I really like the stories and ideas he puts forward but on the other hand execution on his part is somewhat lacking and some of the dialogue is really cringeworthy.
    Still, I look forward to future issues. Maybe he gets better and if not, then maybe someone better will ta more

    This was unsatisfying, much like most of Robinson's work on Wonder Woman. I just don't care about most of what's happening. The writing just never instilled why I should care. In an arc that seemed to go on forever, nothing ever hooked me. If only Greg Rucka stayed. If only. Oh, and I really hate the trope of "love defeats evil". It's so after-school special, y'know?

    Entertaining but deeply flawed. I’m not a fanatic of political correctness but it’s weird to have a Wonder Woman title focusing so much on Steve Trevor and worse, her brother, Jason, who seems to be as popular with readers as Jar Jar Binks.
    The idea itself of the character sucks, and it hadn’t been helped by poor characterization and no rapport with his sister. The plotting and the pacing have been good, the writing itself mediocre.
    Darkseid is defeated too easily with a very corny My Little Pony deus ex machina thing, which again makes Diana rely on the power of two guys, her brother and father. Darkseid has not been well served by this arc, but he is actually the best thing about it, because having Diana go agaibst him put more
