    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 19, 2020

    When Wonder Woman first moved to Boston it was in another life back at the beginning of George Perezs iconic run on the title. That run featured a rich, engaging ensemble of characters that had a tendency to push Wonder Woman to the corners of her own book. Orlando is opening THIS Boston chapter in Dianas life with a bit of a more tempered approach to the title which looks like its going to allow Wonder Woman to remain in the center of the panel. This is a promising direction for Wonder Woman. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Edward Wendt Feb 13, 2020

    Wonder Woman #751 does pretty much everything that it needs to. This is maybe not the most streamlined issue, but it puts everything in the right place to get the series back on track. Without the influence of the "Year of the Villain" tie-in, things are mostly back to normal. It is a new start, but it is well set up thus far, with intriguing new supporting characters and new roles. There is also the introduction of new villains and the return of some old ones. Fans of the series will be pleased with the start of this new arc. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 12, 2020

    It's been nearly impossible to judge Steve Orlando's run until now because he was dealing with subplots from the G. Willow Wilson run, but with Wonder Woman #751, we get our first glimpse at Orlando's vision " and it's a very promising start. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Nicole Drum Feb 12, 2020

    Coming off of the beautiful love letter that was Wonder Woman #750, #751 is a delightful day-in-the-life type of story that, in a sense, allows the reader to see Wonder Woman from the eyes of a skeptic. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Feb 12, 2020

    So far it seems the series will be putting more focus on ideas, specifically what Diana stands for and how she acts on that. It has set up a nice system to discuss those ideas in the future. Diana is just as inspirational as ever and the way she behaves in this issue proves it. The multitude of glimpses of future elements have thoroughly piqued my interest, and have created a great sense of anticipation. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ari Bard Feb 12, 2020

    Wonder Woman # 751 outlines Orlando's approach to the Wonder Woman mythos. Along with Jan Duursema, Romulo Fajardo Jr., and Pat Brousseau, Orlando crafts a story determined to show that his Wonder Woman run is going to be a female-driven effort to synthesize previous runs through the unifying themes of love and compassion.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 12, 2020

    Orlando introduces a new potential threat or an ally at the end of the issue, which is a welcome sight as Wonder Woman writers have struggled coming up with new foes besides Cheetah, Giganta, Ares, Circe and Silver Swan. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 13, 2020

    Wonder Woman #751 accomplished what it needed to accomplish. Steve Orlando gave Wonder Woman a fresh start. In doing so Orlando was able to develop Wonder Woman's supporting cast and create interest in the new Hoursewomen as big threats for the future. Orlando's strong story was strengthened by the strong artwork Jan Duursema provides throughout the story. The detail Duursema gives each character went a long way in helping create a sense of pushing forward with the story in Wonder Woman #751. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Feb 12, 2020

    A simply structured, impressively drawn story becomes the frame on which writer Steve Orlando hangs his 'manifesto' for the series going forward. Focusing on Diana's compassion and sense of fairness, as well as showing a determination to mine DC's rich history for plot elements and antagonists, Orlando has got this reviewer at least intrigued as to what the future for this title might hold.

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Feb 12, 2020

    Overall, I enjoyed the story and I'm curious to see where Orlando will be taking this arc with Wonder Woman. There were some stories mentioned in the final few pages I am not covering to keep it spoiler-free, but this definitely opens up some really interesting issues moving forward. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 19, 2020

    The issue also offers a new mythological threat for Wonder Woman as the rising storm (which she helps those around the city prepare for) is revealed to be the work of the Dark Fates who, after Cheetah‘s failure to beat Wonder Woman (despite all their help), now look to deal with her directly… no doubt foreshadowing trouble to come. Worth a look. Read Full Review
