    WONDER WOMAN #6 manages to cram a lot of character history and plotinto a short space of time without it feeling overbearing. The script is tight, the words chosen carefully. The art is wonderful and definite on each page. This series continues to be one of the stars of DC Rebirth. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Sep 17, 2016

    This series is absolutely perfect to bring in new readers like myself but it also has lots to offer the long-time readers. DC is on fire with Rebirth and we can’t be more proud that they have lived up to all the promises. So what are you doing go to your local comic book store or your digital comic app and get this series, you won’t be disappointed. Wonder Woman is one of or an argument could be raised that it’s the best series being released from DC. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 14, 2016

    Another week and another amazing issue of Wonder Woman.  Greg Rucka continues his fairy tale-like (re)telling of Wonder Woman's origin and I loved every minute of it.  This issue has the bonus of connecting some major parts to the Lies story and it simply looked great.  Everyone should be reading Wonder Woman!

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Sep 14, 2016

    Scotts full page delivery of their arrival in Wonder Woman #6, by the way, left me speechless. Every issue weve been granted a knock-down, no-holds-barred beauty of a full page, and its stunning to me that after seven issues and seven reviews I can still be so in awe of what this creative team is churning out. Its astonishing really, a stunning achievement for any modern creative team, and I hope I hope I hope it never ceases to amaze. Read Full Review

    From start to finish, Wonder Woman #6 satisfies. Even in the wake of the Young Animal imprint's debut, this is the DC book to read. Read Full Review

    It's intriguing to see more links develop between this flashback storyline and the present-day conflict in "The Lies." Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Sep 14, 2016

    Wonder Woman #6 is starting to help piece the puzzle together behind Wonder Woman's identity and why she can't find her homeland. Hopefully the main story will start to make a lot more sense when it picks up in the next issue. We have to eat our previous words however. We initially thought this rehash of her backstory was going to be pointless and boring. And it's anything but. Seeing the origin story from different perspectives and in a different style is thoroughly entertaining to read. If you're looking to find out more about the amazonian and get to know Diana Prince a little better –Wonder Woman #6 is the one for you. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 24, 2016

    Of the even-numbered issues centering on Diana's origins, Wonder Woman #6 is the best so far. Filled with humor, Diana's introduction to the outside world is hardly what she expected. The issue also offers the first meeting between Wonder Woman and Dr. Barbara Minerva long before she would become her greatest adversary. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    While light on action, Wonder Woman #6 furthers "Year One's" standing as a heartfelt and mature look at the past of one of DC's icons. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Asa Giannini Sep 14, 2016

    Wonder Woman has, over its first six issues, established itself as the most thoughtful, quality book in the DC rebirth line, and that doesn't show any signs of changing. But while I like both sides of the story, there's no denying that this year one plotline has been the stronger, better-developed side of the story. With this issue, the larger picture of Rucka's plotline begins to take shape, and the future looks bright for Diana and company. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Sep 14, 2016

    Overall, this is a good issue. Greg Rucka excels at Diana's characterizations both as a young girl and as an adult. Adding Minerva into the origin this early is a really good idea and I'm excited to see where that goes. The art is really great as well. However, the issue is a little dull in places with a little too much focus on the military not understanding Diana. I still recommend checking the issue out; there's a lot of good material in this one. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Sep 23, 2016

    Wonder Woman #6 may have had little plot progression, but Rucka's character work is enough for the story to flourish. Seeing how the characters came together is intriguing, especially when compared with the present timeline in the odd-numbered issues. Even if you don't come for the story, Scott's art is more than enough to get you into the book as her work continues to be gorgeous. Read Full Review
