It's the final knock-down drag-out battle between Ares and Wonder Woman-but is there still any hope of changing the young god's ways before he hardens into the worst possible version of himself? And if he does...is Wonder Woman to blame?

    This is a great finale to this story. It looks great; I love the style. And the story is interesting and ends in a way that is satisfying in a bitter sweet way. I really enjoyed this issue. Read Full Review

    This is an example of how truly great the character can be when someone thoughtful and sincere, with a mind to make real change in the world around them, is given the keys to the kingdom. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Jan 16, 2019

    Wonder Woman (2016-) #62 was a superb finish to an intense story arc. G. Willow Wilson once again flexes her storytelling abilities to create a tense, emotional, and introspective issue, packed with nail-biting action. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Jan 16, 2019

    Overall, this was a perfect conclusion to an arc that started off a little weak. Chalk up that uneven beginning to Wilson getting her bearings, though, because she finished with strong, and has managed to lay a solid foundation for what will, hopefully, be a long run. If youre a fan of Wonder Woman done right, stick around to see where this story is going. People will, no doubt, be talking about this run in a few months time. Read Full Review

    Writer G. Willow Wilson gives us a strong ending to "The Just War." Durovnia has peace, Ares has a quest, and Diana needs to find out what happened to Themyscira. Artist Xermanico draws one of the best-looking books I've seen this year. Read Full Review

    Wilson, Xermanico, and Fajardo Jr. give readers a little bit of everything in Wonder Woman #62 a comic book that is thoughtful and well-executed. Read Full Review

    I truly enjoyed Xermanico's art in this issue. Everything was done with stunning details and a fluid grace of movement in the action and fight scenes. A truly enjoyable visual experience. Read Full Review

    Will Wilson actually take Diana back home and bring the Amazons back into the supporting cast? We'll see, but I continue to be consistently intrigued by the ambition of this run. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Christina Hamlet Feb 2, 2019

    This has been one of the better arcs of late, starting strong and staying strong throughout. Overall the story ends well closing the arc while opening more questions, signaling new challenges and a new direction for Diana as she moves forward, an entertaining read and well worth picking up.

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jan 16, 2019

    I really liked this issue and thought it was one of the most gorgeous comics of the year so far. Xermanico is wonderful and I hope he returns to the title very soon. Wilson's script was pretty good and the way she plotted the action, along with Xermanico's execution, was delightful. I'm hoping the run can sustain this positive trajectory. Read Full Review

    The final confrontation was underwhelming, the but resolution was nice. Wonder Woman is in good hands with G. Willow Wilson at the helm. Read Full Review

    While the story has a few glimmers, the conclusion to the Just War feels imbalanced. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light Jan 16, 2019

    In the end, there is plenty more thinking and talking about justice and other big ideas, all wrapping up with a terribly modern feeling: there is no end to War, there is only sometimes an end to fighting. As endings go, it is a solid landing, planting Wilson's Wonder Woman squarely for take-off to her next adventure. Overall, reception for this arc has been lukewarm (not just me!). I'm hopeful, however, that now that the awkward start is complete, Wilson and team can really take Diana into new places and continue to build her legend. There's a lot of promise in this team-up of Wilson and Wonder Woman that hasn't yet been realized. Maybe next month! Always, in comics, there's next month. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 16, 2019

    Art remains an improvement over what Cary Nord gave us in the first two issues – I'd really like him to be replaced full time, sadly solicits imply otherwise – but that doesn't do much to cover up the fact that this first story arc in Wilson's run didn't do much for me. It pains me to say that because as I noted earlier, I am a huge fan of hers and wanted her on this book. I can see what she was trying to do with the political side of this story and posing the question “what is a just war,” but she didn't spend enough time setting it up in the earlier issues, which led to this ending feeling abrupt and hollow. I still have faith, and my score reflects that despite what my review may have indicated – butt G Willow needs to really bring it in the next arc. Read Full Review

    There's still promise in Wilson's basic handling of the characters, but this storyline got too big too soon and feels out of place. Read Full Review
