    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 15, 2021

    Conrad, Cloonan, and company have led Diana on quite a journey in recent months. One gets the feeling that the ending might have had a bit more impact if theyd been allowed a bit more time in each of the worlds that Diana had fallen through, but this is a largely satisfying end to the journey. Bellaires story serves as an enjoyable introduction to the Adventures of Young Diana one-shot special, arriving in October. It will be interesting to see how Bellaire and Ganucheau handle an extended 80-page story. Theyve done so well with an ongoing serial at the end of Wonder Womans legacy series. Given more space, they should have a bit more freedom to explore the world of Young Diana.  Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Sep 14, 2021

    The final chapter of Cloonan, Conrad, and Moores epic Homeric odyssey through the multiverse, while providing a meta commentary on comic fandom, and the devotion for continuity through the use of the characters introduced in this arc. The dichotomy of Januss two sides, and the absolutes that both represent, are tempered when theyre together. Its a novel approach to comics as they try to ensure the relevance of the characters, and the cultural impact theyve given us through the decades of publication. Read Full Review

    Travis Moore delivers some exciting visuals and the lack of detail in the backgrounds does a great job of emphasizing the characters. Read Full Review

    This run has made great use of mythology over its run, and while I don't think this issue reaches the heights of the previous one that took Diana to some of the strangest worlds in the multiverse, it does have some clever twists that bring in the Greek Gods as well as some mysterious new power players.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Sep 14, 2021

    "Afterworlds" ends in Wonder Woman #779 thoughtfully and with a provocative resolution. The good news is that Cloonan and Conrad will be on board next issue to explore Diana's return to Earth and guide her adventures. Perhaps, this is all just the groundwork for something even bigger are more monumental. It is certainly implied that something is coming to Diana's future that we have to believe is part of her destiny and a valid interpretation of her character, something just as valid as a classic iteration. There's also a question posed in this issue, "Can characters really change, permanently or will a significant contingent of fans always decry such things?" Read Full Review

    The wild ride that has been Diana's pursuit of Janus comes to an end in Wonder Woman #779 and it is ultimately a satisfying, albeit predictable end. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 14, 2021

    Writers Michael W. Conrad and Becky Cloonan wrap this arc in less than exciting fashion, which feels fitting for this overly drawn out storyline. It had reached a point where salvaging it was going to be tricky and the best thing to do was just end it. Hopefully, Conrad and Clooney can find a more exciting and engaging approach for the next storyline, which features Wonder Woman's return to the regular timeline. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 14, 2021

    Wonder Woman #779 is a disappointing end to a disappointing (and overlong) story.  I'm sure that some will argue that this story was about the journey, not the destination, but if that's the case, I sit here doubly upset.  I hope Cloonan and Conrad can pull something better together for their next arc because Diana and her fans deserve much better!
