    Wonder Woman #769 gives the current arc a bit of closure by revisiting and expanding on the central themes of Tamakis run. Read Full Review

    One of the biggest strengths of Mariko Tamaki's writing is that she perfectly captures the emotions of her characters, and that helps to keep Diana grounded in the compassion that defines her. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 22, 2020

    Steve Pugh delivers some impressive visuals in this issue. Not only do the characters look great on the page, but the detail and contrast between Liar Liar's reality and her delusions were well done. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 23, 2020

    Mariko Tamaki has coaxed a very heartfelt hero to the page. While her final issue isn't a wholly satisfying conclusion to her run on the series, it's nice to see Tamaki's Diana spending a few more panels fighting for the sanctity of life in a world that is locked in so much madness. Becky Cloonan takes over in issue 770 in March. If she can find even her way to the character's emotional center the way Tamaki has, the series will continue to do justice to Diana.  Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Dec 22, 2020

    When all is said and done, Wonder Woman #769 delivers a solid story, even if the ending feels a little unearned. The creative team's combined work utilizes its main character's many strengths to the fullest to craft an enjoyable story. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 22, 2020

    Ultimately, the back end of Tamakis run proved too uneven with a happy ending for a character that didnt need redemption so soon. Next month kicks off Wonder Womans Future State adventures and this makes for an ideal time for a soft reboot of the title. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 22, 2020

    Mariko Tamaki finishes up her disappointing run on Wonder Woman with a generic issue that doesn't make sense with what we've gotten earlier in the series.  I can only hope that this is the last we ever see of Liar Liar and Tamaki near a Wonder Woman book ever again. Read Full Review
