Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor and the goddess of love, Aphrodite, are pretty sure they've found Aphrodite's missing son in this unremarkable suburban town-the fact that everyone here is compulsively driven to act on their secret desires is an awfully big clue! But if they actually want to talk to him, they'll have to get through a flying army of...attack cherubs?!

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan May 8, 2019

    Wonder Woman (2016-) #70 is a must-read. Wilson, Xermanico, and Romulo Fajardo Jr. craft an issue that is intensely rewarding to read; thought provoking while entertaining. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 8, 2019

    G. Willow Wilson's run seems determined to grapple with some rather weighty issues and tackle them through the prism of the Greek Gods, and it's off to a very good start. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen May 9, 2019

    What makes this arc particularly interesting is that there is no physical antagonist for Wonder Woman and her supporting cast. The challenge they face is the power of raw emotion, which means there must be a solution other than punching. It's a great change of pace for a superhero comic, forcing Wilson and artist Xermanico to push the boundaries of the genre. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers May 9, 2019

    Overall, this isnt an issue that is densely packed with plot, but its a fun read, and its populated with interesting characters that you want to spend time with. Hopefully, the next chapter gets to the point of the story a little quicker, but as a setup issue goes, this one did its work just fine. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine May 11, 2019

    This is a solid issue. I like the themes Wilson is dealing with and they form Diana's arc. It helps these stories feel more connected. It becomes more clear with each issue that Wilson has a defined take on Diana that she is willing to challenge and explore. I don't love the art but the issue is still enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 8, 2019

    The overall story moves inches forward and even that is forced.  I liked Xermanico's art but little else.  Wilson still seems to be struggling with Wonder Woman as a character and the book is suffering while she tries to get her footing.  I hope she finds it soon! Read Full Review
