    This is a decent issue. Robinson resolves the conflict in an interesting and unique manner. The art is gorgeous and features some of my favorite people in the industry which is a great treat. The structure and pace of the issue are a little dull for me but it doesn't kill my enjoyment of the piece. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Jul 11, 2018

    Robinson's Dark Gods arc has been inspired from the beginning. However, it this final issue that really brings the arc together. Robinson's skill for storytelling really comes through in the this issue, highlighted through Lupacchino, Merino, and Segovia amazing art. Read Full Review

    Although there's been some criticism on James Robinson's run of Wonder Woman, I thoroughly enjoyed it and his take on the “new” gods. Issue #50 was a little lacklustre in terms of the previous issues but it was still a satisfying conclusion with some fun dialogue, great characterisation and awesome art by Stephen Segovia, Jesus Merino and Andy Owens.

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Jul 11, 2018

    This was a solid conclusion to the Dark Gods plot. It's nice that they followed through with the sacrifice mentioned in the title. The biggest issue is that they've had Jason come and go so many times in the small amount of time he's been around. So it doesn't really have the same impact anymore, though it's certainly still felt. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jul 11, 2018

    In a nice curtain call to his run, the main artists who worked with Robinson on the title — Steven Segovia, Emmanuela Luppacchino & Ray McCarthy and Jesus Merino & Andy Owens — contributed to this issue's artwork. The art looked terrific throughout as the teams' style allows for smooth hand offs. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jason Saba Jul 11, 2018

    The art highlights are the final set of pages where Lupacchino does her emotional work with Diana, conveying her complete sadness as she gets tearful several times reflecting on all that has happened. Luppachino's version of Diana is so beautiful that it makes you think about wanting to see her draw Diana forever, but we all know this is not possible. Read Full Review

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

    I am a little bit tired of all these “end of the world” stories that seems to be in most of the DC books recently. Diana is a character that could do with some down time, to recharge her batteries and engage in “man's world” again before stepping into the world of magic in Justice League Dark. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Mary Swangin Jul 12, 2018

    Wonder Woman #50 is an unremarkable end to an unremarkable run. Mediocre villains serve as a boring backdrop to an issue that really misses its mark during the emotional high points. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 12, 2018

    Wonder Woman #50 is a decent issue. It has its problems without a doubt, and its execution seems to deliberately sidestep much of a catharsis. That said, there is still some emotional engagement to be had, and the battle is still quite cool. The artistic team does excellent work too. This one earns a tentative recommendation. Feel free to check it out. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Christina Hamlet Jul 20, 2018

    After the last issue I held out some hope that the issue would make use of its oversized status to flesh out some meat to this story and make it a solid end to this run. Those hopes were quickly dashed, but at least Jason might be out of the picture for the time being. Hopefully, the next chapter of Wonder Woman will actually feature her. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 11, 2018

    This arc ends pretty much like you've come to expect from this title under James Robinson's helm.  Pretty damn lackluster.  The art in this issue was great, but everything on the writing end felt really mediocre and like Robinson was only cashing a check because it sure as hell never felt like his heart was in this series.

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Jul 18, 2018

    In the end, if you havent been loving James Robinson's run on Wonder Woman, this issue wont change your mind. He is quickly clearing the table for the next writer, with varying degrees of success. Read Full Review

    This final issue does one thing right " it slams the door on the whole run in such a way that it can mostly be ignored forever. Read Full Review
