    This is a solid issue. It's very action heavy but that makes sense at this point in the story. It might not read that well on its own but it's an effective and fun progression of the story. The art is wonderful as well and it's a really enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Forrest Hollingsworth Oct 24, 2018

    A tipping point for the "Witching Hour" story, this is a total triumph of an issue that doesn't entirely dismiss all of the frustrations of previous missteps but does successfully pick up their strengths and carry us into something truly incredible for both reader and character.

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Oct 24, 2018

    Wonder Woman (2016-) #57 continues to add layers of context to the Witching Hour storyline. James Tynion IV script and Emanuela Lupacchino art create a balance between unbelievable chaos and determined order. The pair have crafted the quintessential apocalyptical battle, but in the most creative, Wonder Woman packed way. Read Full Review

    In only four weekly issues, Tynion has shown exactly how you do an event comic and put many of his competitors to shame. Read Full Review

    In short, this was another big time installment for The Witching Hour. I'm curious to see how Tynion plans to wrap it up and if there will be any long term repercussions. Read Full Review

    The art has been great, the issues have flowed with a great pace and it bodes very well for future stories after the end of The Witching Hour coming next week. You know, because of the invincible beings who control all of magic and want to destroy everything that weve forgotten about while Hecate tries to kill everyone. A great warm up before the magical boss battle next week. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 24, 2018

    The art is exceptional in this issue. Lupacchino creates some amazing visual moments both in the depiction of magic, but also in the quiet character moments like Diana and Witchfire on the moon. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Oct 26, 2018

    James Tynion slows the plot a little to provide more depth and exposition, but it comes at the perfect time to allow the story to breathe and expand in many ways. New stakes are established and the odds change for all players involved. This chapter might be low on energy compared to previous issues, but you'll close this book more eager for the next chapter than you've ever been before. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Oct 31, 2018

    Overall, not much happens for Wonder Woman in this chapter of The Witching Hour, but the story around her was enough to keep the average person invested, and the threat of the rules of DCs magic being completely rewritten is more than enough to draw readers back in for the next issue. Even if youre not picking up the rest of this story, Tynion has done a fine job of making the Wonder Woman chapters self-explanatory, so its not completely necessary to spend the extra money so far.

    Boy, oh boy, oh boy" I'm soooooo glad that the next instalment is an extended special, as I don't know how this story could be wrapped up in 20 pages. What I'm also extremely pleased about is that it's only one week away. That's right folks, this story will reach its dramatic conclusion in the pages of Justice League Dark/Wonder Woman: The Witching Hour #1. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Joey Edsall Oct 30, 2018

    This is a difficult issue to use as a jumping-on point as it isn't very forgiving on readers without context, but if you have been following, you'll likely enjoy what's here while you wait for time to be up on The Witching Hour. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jason Saba Oct 24, 2018

    This issue doesn't hit it out of the park, but it's still very good despite being mainly exposition. Counting the previous issue of Justice League Dark though, that makes for two issues in a row in the same sort of mold. If part five, Justice League Dark #5 is much the same next week then the event would have unfortunately trailed off significantly, which would be a massive disappointment given the event's wonderful start. Fingers crossed it's not. Read Full Review

    Given how many different balls the creative team has to juggle, The Witching Hour could be a real mess, but chapters like Wonder Woman #57 show plenty of promise to this wild high concept. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 24, 2018

    Looks like the world of magic as we know it is going away, and Justice League Dark continues trying to stem the tide. Except for Wonder Woman, of course, he's possessed by Hecate. Too bad, that. Read Full Review
