It’s a brand-new day for Wonder Woman! As Diana starts to pick up the pieces of her life following her battle with the Four Horsewomen and her run-in with the Phantom Stranger, Man’s World has become more complicated to navigate than ever before. It seems everyone has a take on who Wonder Woman should
be-some who look on her heroics with admiration, and some who lie in wait to seek revenge. A familiar threat is watching Diana’s every move, and now is the perfect time to strike…

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 29, 2020

    The new direction maintains a noble sense of mystery about one of the most established characters in all of contemporary pop fiction. She's front and center for the whole issue, but Tamaki doesn't allow the reader into Diana's thoughts. The narration that more or less runs throughout the issue isn't Diana's either. Tamaki renders a very appealing Wonder Woman who seems poised to reveal a more intimate personality in time. For now, she's just the beautiful woman with all the swords and vases and decorative Ionic columns who lives down the hall.  Read Full Review

    Interesting villain choice aside, this is a very positive debut from a writer who gets Wonder Woman's strengths paired with an art team that will constantly wow readers. The rest of 2020 is looking bright for Wonder Woman regardless if her film makes it in theaters this year. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Carlos R. Jul 28, 2020

    I thoroughly enjoyed this issue and the little details added in by the creative team. Diana is in safe hands and I’m excited to see how she’ll be further developed. If you’re looking to get your Wonder Woman fix before Wonder Woman 1984 (hopefully) drops later this year, then look no further than Wonder Woman #759! Read Full Review

    Mikel Janin adds some beautiful visuals to this issue. From the beautifully detailed splash pages to the panel progression, this issue is stunning. One of the best parts is the final sequence and how it leads to the surprise reveal at the end. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 31, 2020

    The core of this run, at least at first, is going to be Diana facing off against one of her most personal enemies in Maxwell Lord"and his first appearance in this issue is pitch-perfect. There are a few hiccups in this first issue, but Tamaki gives us a likable version of Diana, some promising new characters, and a deadly villain to start things off. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 27, 2020

    Mariko Tamaki starts her Wonder Woman run with a combination of action-movie mayhem and indie movie interactions.  It's a nice combination, though certain scenes hang around a little too long at times.  Mikel Janin makes it all pop, and the ending, while leaving the good stuff for the next issue, will have me back for just that reason.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 29, 2020

    Wonder Woman #759 is a very good start that welcomes both new and long-time fans of Wonder Woman into what will happen next in this series. Mariko Tamaki showed a strong understanding of who Wonder Woman is and sets up a story with Maxwell Lord as the main antagonist that you are immediately invested in. Add in the fantastic artwork from the team of Mikel Janin and Jordie Bellaire and you have a comic book Wonder Woman fans should all be checking out. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jul 29, 2020

    Wonder Woman #759 won't impress everyone. It's not reinventing the wheel, but it's a solid enough issue. The art is outstanding, and the writing has the potential to get there. We saw Tamaki able to explore Jennifer Walters' psyche during her run on She-Hulk and I hope we'll get a similar examination here. Max Lord is back " a villain that Diana killed back in the days of Infinite Crisis " and that's got to weigh on her in some way. But the art is the real star in this issue " did I mention that Janin draws great dinosaurs? Because he totally does " and I hope that Tamaki is able to challenge her art team to make this arc truly memorable. Read Full Review

    This is the best wonder woman issue since DC rebirth. The art was good, story and dialogues were good. I hope this continues in the next issue.

    Wow, that was a fun start! Like everyone else, I'm hoping that Tamaki's run is where this book turns a corner and becomes a book that's consistently fun to read again. Wonder Woman going to Ikea was a hoot.

    This is my first time ever stepping into the world of Wonder Woman and it's all because of the recent news of Mariko Tamaki winning the Eisner Award for Best Writer. I've never read anything by her before so this issue was completely new to me except for being familiar with the art team and the cover artist.

    And I gotta say, I dig what I read so far. Mikel Janin takes his extraordinary talent from the pages of Batman and applies it here with WW. The dialogue was great too.

    This is looking to be a fun ride!

    I'm so surprised this was good. It's been so long since we've had a good Wonder Woman issue. I'm so excited by the notion that maybe, just maybe, Wonder Woman won't be a horrific slog like it used to be. I've read a lot of Mariko Tamaki's writing, and the results are kind of all over the place, but here's hoping this is one of the good runs. I even liked Mikel Janin's art more than usual. Maybe the coloring has something to do with it. The aesthetic is brighter than Batman, and that may have helped take away the doll factor in his art.

    I'm not a fan of Tamaki's previous works and because of that prejudice of mine, I was skeptical about her taking over Wonder Woman's series. I have to say I'm positively surprised so far - it may have not been the greatest comic I've ever picked up, but I'm glad I gave it a chance. It offers some character driven drama, action and a mystery to be unraveled in the foreseeable future. Sure, you could argue if Diana would be so detached when it comes to furniture after spending decades in men's world, but hey, it's comics, they make us believe people can fly, shoot lasers from their eyes and completely selflessly fight completely selfish evil-doers.
    I'll look forward to the next issue. If it build on what's here, I may end up adding it to more

    It's been a while since I've read wonder woman as an ongoing, not since rucka left rebirth. I feel like the character hasn't had a consistent writer since rucka left, but this issue is a good start. It's fun and sweet, and also has a nice little set up for the current arc. Deals with Diana's decisions with Maxwell Lord before infinite crisis, which doesn't really get brought up that often outside of infinite crisis. Overall, a solid solid book, I'll continue reading

    Jumped back onto this book to give Tamaki a shot. And you know what, she showed up. After drags of boring crap from countless writers, I finally found a WW Rebirth story that intrigues me. Albeit, a mere introduction to whats to come and with hints of something that might be really worth investing myself in.

    Tamaki surprised me, I thought she would just be another writer from the call-book that merely feels like a stand-in filler for the actual story that never came. But her writing wasn't bad, boring, or both. It was actually good. The monologue, and just the normal interactions between WW and normal people was done well. And the transitions in this book is the definite strong point of this issue.

    Art by Janin, I hav more

    The Mariko Tamaki/ Mikel Janin run begins, and it takes a decidedly different route than recent interpretations of Wonder Woman.

    I appreciate the reframing of the character to better line up with how Patty Jenkins is presenting her in the movies. But I have to wonder if making WW more of a street level character with an apartment, a quirky neighbor and half the book focused on a highway car chase diminishes the character. But that's a core tension with the character. Is WW supposed to be soaring with the Greek gods a la Perez (my WW) or talking to bunnies, going to IKEA and running secret agent missions?

    I was thinking the same thing coming out of the introductory pages. Specifically, highlighting Cheetah. Again more

    Auuuuuuuuggggghhhhhh yeeeeaaah, traced 3D models with a plot of incredibly low stakes to go with it (but Tomaki is a winner of the all-important Eisner awards so what do I know).
