    Comicosity - Matt Santori Sep 28, 2016

    Its always magical to uncover a depth of thought and vision from a creative team as a narrative unfolds and not have to be told outright what we are meant to understand. As Rucka, Sharp, and Martin collaborate with Nicola Scott to build this richer sense of who Diana is and what risk she faces in embracing the word of her patrons, I am left in warm awe and grateful respect for their sophistication. Wonder Woman continues to be the emotional center of my reading experiences this summer and remarkably, blooms a little more every issue where so many other series would simply be dying on the vine.

    This is a really strong issue and a nice conclusion to the story. It's incredibly engaging and tense with some cool action. The characterizations are terrific and the art is fantastic. I highly recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review

    The weak point of the story is he artwork by Liam Sharp. I prefer year one artist Nicola Scott. But a weakness is relative in a story so well crafted. Some shots, like Wonder Woman plunging through Urzkartaga looked like super heroics of a bygone era and so were less satisfying. Yet for such a jungle epic, he is the natural choice.

    Comicsverse - Chris Galvin Oct 1, 2016

    Despite these issues,Greg Rucka, Liam Sharp, and Laura Martin continue to make WONDER WOMAN a damn fine and essential read. In their hands Diana has become as inspiring, as hopeful, and as full of courage as Superman. She may even outshine him. Read Full Review

    If there's one criticism to be had, it's that Cadulo and Urzkartaga are done away with too easily. But between the great character work, the unexpected moments of humor (like Cheetah's reaction to Chris doubting her trustworthiness), and Liam Sharp's gorgeous presentation, it's not hard to consider Wonder Woman once more as one of the best books DC has to offer.

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Oct 5, 2016

    The writing isn't just good, it's great. It's intelligent and well-paced, while the ending is quite possibly the smartest way to defeat a villain which completely symbolizes everything which Wonder Woman stands for, not just as a character but as an ideal. While this storyline may have been accused by some of moving a little slowly throughout this arc, the payoff here makes it all worthwhile. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Oct 13, 2016

    Overall, Wonder Woman #7was the boot up the backside that this story needed. It picked up the pace and was genuinely an enjoyable read. It's also refreshing to see a male hero have to be rescued by a woman instead of the other way round for once. There's no point in the story that the writers make Wonder Woman helpless in her situation whatsoever. It's ends up being a true testament to her character. So whilst sometimes the pacing is a little off – this story is rapidly coming into it's own, even if it's taken a while. Read Full Review

    Liam Sharp makes the battle Diana and Barbara Ann wage on Cadulo's forces clear and brutal and though there are some missteps with Steve's team and the hostages " they're just not distinct enough for my taste " the overall feel supports the story well. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Sep 29, 2016

    It's fascinating that, in many ways, Wonder Woman has had her very book stolen from underneath her by her foe-turned-frenemy, the Cheetah. But it's to Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp's credit that Barbara Ann Minerva is such a compelling figure as the cursed bride of Urzkartaga " she's been tricked, abused, lied to, coerced into murder and mayhem thanks to a demigod who, in a smart twist by Rucka, secretly fears the women he seeks to enslave and control.

    The Pop Break - Andrew Fontana Oct 3, 2016

    Having Wonder Woman win the day through empowerment of victims rather than straight up fisticuffs is a welcome return of form for the character. Rucka, despite his tendency towards decompressed storylines, shows that he understands Diana and her world like no other at DC, and this issue is proof of that fact. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Sep 28, 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

    Outright Geekery - Leroy Dee Sep 29, 2016

    VerdictThis arc has really displayed what separates Wonder Woman from every other hero. Her fists aren't her most powerful weapon, it's truth. Cheetah actually has a more complicated relationship with Wonder Woman than the casual reader realizes, so it'll be interesting in see where they go from here. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 6, 2016

    While the “Year One” storyline is just getting the threesome acquainted in the odd issues of the new Wonder Woman series, Wonder Woman #7 reunites Wonder Woman with Cheetah and Steve Trevor as Wonder Woman her former friend turned enemy work together to free the captives and defeat Urzkartaga. The issue works well to wrap-up this part of the story while still leaving plenty to be delved into in the next arc. Will Diana's fragile truce with Cheetah hold? What does her reunion with Steve mean for the future of the pair? I am curious to see where the comic will go next. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 28, 2016

    Rucka's vision for the overall story is starting to take shape. I still think this one of the Rebirth titles that will be better appreciated in collected format where readers can take it all in over 12-14 issues in one sitting. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 28, 2016

    While I've been loving this series, I have to say that this finale to our first story arc came off feeling a bit rushed to get to the conclusion, but luckily the art remained strong as hell and was really the best part about this issue.  Hopefully the pacing gets back to normal when we pick back up with the search for Themyscira.   Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Mike Badilla Sep 28, 2016

    The story, however, was not all that interesting, and I don't think it was because I jumped in on issue 7. Everyone knows the story of sacrificing the virgins to an ancient god in order to awaken him and blah blah. This story seemed particularly 90's with the inclusion of the animal-men, which I thought was equally as corny then as now. I feel like if you're going to rehash a story that's so trope-y like this that you need to have a lot of tricks or surprises up your sleeve, which I don't get the impression this series has. If you're a big fan of WW or animal people, get this book. If you're not a fan, at least give it a flip through to see the art. Read Full Review
