Wonder Woman and Max Lord are on the hunt for some missing and extremely dangerous weaponry from Lord Industries, and the search has brought this unlikely duo to…Miami? Fun in the sun will have to wait-because if Diana and Max can’t uncover this illegal arms trade, the entire city could be blown sky high! But we’re sure Max Lord will be nothing but helpful…right?

    From having no interest in Maxwell Lord being a series regular to being fascinated by Tamakis take on the character, Wonder Woman is thriving right now from going against so many of the expected norms to be a book full of very welcome and entertaining surprises. Read Full Review

    The superhero/supervillain team-up is a time-honored tradition in comics and usually annoys both parties, but this is one of the best examples because it does such a good job of reminding us of why Lord is a dangerous villain. He's so charming you almost forget he's a monster, and then he's about to mind-wipe a young woman just for annoying him slightly. I don't know if he's ultimately the big bad of this run, but he's a compelling part of one of the best WW runs in a while. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 13, 2020

    Steve Pugh delivers some great art in this issue. There is a lightness to the story that is perfectly embodied in the style of the art and how the characters move throughout the panels. A great looking issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Oct 13, 2020

    Wonder Woman #764 (Tamaki, Pugh, Fajardo Jr., Brosseau) is a comic that knows how to have fun even in a serious situation, helping to make the issue a worthwhile read for any fan despite falling a bit short on impact. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 14, 2020

    Tamaki is expanding Diana a bit here. She's given an opportunity to be on vacation, which is a nice contrast from the daily life Tamaki has brought to the page for Diana in recent issues. The serene moment at issue's end is a nice contrast to the action which precedes it. Tamaki is working with a nice balance in this issue, but it doesn't settle onto the page very well. The flow from page to page lacks enough grace to feel as distinct as a trip to Miami should have. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Nicole Drum Oct 14, 2020

    Wonder Woman #764 feels a great deal like a filler issue and while the story is setting up for bigger things, nothing here feels particularly special. It's just okay"but even Tamaki's "okay" is pretty good, even when bland. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 16, 2020

    This issue's conflict is resolved oddly and awkwardly, while Max's obvious nefariousness makes it hard to understand why Wonder Woman would want to trust or work with him. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Oct 22, 2020

    I don't love this issue. There some okay elements. It has a solid sense of humor and the big action sequence is great. But the story itself isn't that interesting; I don't think Diana and Maxwell Lord make a good buddy cop duo. It's flat. Additionally, I didn't really connect with the art. For me, the issue was underwhelming. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 12, 2020

    Wonder Woman #764 could have been a fun enough issue, but instead, Mariko Tamaki wastes the reader's time and money.  After her work of X-23, I was worried about Wonder Woman, but I think I wasn't concerned enough.  Skip this one. Read Full Review
