At the behest of Aztek, Diana and Artemis join her for a trip to Mexico, but there's no sightseeing on the agenda. Instead, they must rescue a long-lost Amazon who's being held captive by rogue deity Tezcatlipoca, who's trying to break into our world. Can our three heroes save the missing Amazon, stop a raging god and not kill one another in the process?

    Batman's Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Aug 8, 2018

    Whereas Wonder Woman #51 examined Diana Princes deep and stubborn capacity for compassion, Wonder Woman #52 utilizes her role as a living piece of mythology to launch a multi-part adventure. Orlando and Aco have clearly worked together in the past, and the result is a polished and fully-formed start. Fans of great superhero comics, take note. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Aug 8, 2018

    The start of a brand new story that promises to lead Diana and Artemis to a few new corners of the Earth, Wonder Woman #52 is once again Orlando and ACO working science that looks like magic together. Like space unfolding, this book is a visual and character-driven delight, revealing more the deeper you let yourself fall into it. And Im ready to go all in once again. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 8, 2018

    This issue doesn't cut to the core of Diana's character the way the previous one did, but it delivers a strong, exciting narrative that puts Wonder Woman at the center of her story again. On that note, it's another win for Orlando. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - George Chrysostomou Aug 8, 2018

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Aug 15, 2018

    Overall, Orlando has been hit and miss on JLA in the past, but he seems to have a good handle on the character of Wonder Woman and what makes her tick. Add in Aztec, one of the strongest new characters from his League run, and the extremely entertaining Artemis, and youve got a story that is off to a fun start. If you werent a fan of James Robinsons recent run on this title, give Orlandos mini-run a shot. Its sure to wash the bad taste out of your mouth. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Aug 8, 2018

    The story is interesting, the artwork is out of this world, and it's an all-around good read. Don't skip Wonder Woman #52. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jason Saba Aug 8, 2018

    This team-up has promise and even if it is not something permanent, there are plenty of other reasons to pick up this issue and the next couple of issues that will follow. Those reasons are Artemis, Artemis and Artemis. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 9, 2018

    Wonder Woman #52 is another good issue from Steven Orlando. The last issue was a solid attempt at an interpersonal story between Diana and an old foe; this installment is just a fun team-up between disparate heroes with good artwork. Consequently, it earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    All of the heart present in Wonder Woman #51 is quickly forgotten for a story driven entirely by functions of plotting and continuity. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Aug 10, 2018

    This issue is fine. The art is good and there is some fun crazy action to go with it. A lot of the dialogue works and I do think Orlando writes Diana well. Ultimately, I had a hard time getting invested in what was going on and was slightly bored by the issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 8, 2018

    There's a lot of concepts thrown at you in this issue, but I'll be damned if any of them were really explained or if I understand this new Aztek any better.  The art in this issue is fine, but the dialog just throws me completely off and I'd love to actually have an issue where Aztek talks about the things she's facing with people who need her to explain further than her just throwing words and names out there like everyone knows what's going on.

    Multiversity Comics - Jacob Nuckolls Aug 10, 2018

    Despite the incredibly strong previous issue, "Wonder Woman 52" fails to leave us wanting more. Between the messy, clunky artwork and the exposition-heavy script, this book leaves much to be desired. Read Full Review
