    The real standout this issue, however, is the art. Marcio Takara does great work here in an issue that is absolutely fantastic in every way. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Nov 9, 2021

    Wonder Woman is back on Earth and Wonder Woman #781 is quite literally a perfect super-hero comic. The villain plot is interesting and linked to a relevant theme both in story and in the real world. The issue is character focused and you care about the relationships. The various plot lines fit into the larger story that's being told. There's even a mysterious cliffhanger that dares you not come back for more. Shame on you for not reading Wonder Woman!

    Comic Watch - Clint Theron Nov 9, 2021

    Cloonan and Conrad, now joined by Marcio Takara, continue bringing their A-game to Wonder Woman. This issue sets up several storylines while never losing my interest. And when Doctor Psycho is in the mix, you know you're in for a good time. I'm strapped in for the long haul as this is the most exciting the Wonder Woman title has been since 2017. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 10, 2021

    Dianas return to the living pairs well with a tale of a new inductee leaving the realm of mainstream society to join the Bana-Mighdal. The twin features appear to be a solid step in the editors plans to expand Wonder Womans corner of the DC universe. Wonder Woman has had a wide appeal from a variety of different moods over the past 80 years. Its nice to see DC editorial looking to embrace more of those moods on a more regular basis in the months to come.  Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 9, 2021

    This isn't a comic like any other post-hero return I've read, and it's answering some very interesting questions. It's also a complete departure from the run so far, which takes a little getting used to. However, these writers have done a great job getting us to care about this version of Diana, and sending her off on this bizarre new sidequest is an intriguing twist. Read Full Review

    This new arc has potential especially if those random out of character moments are explained and the action ramps up. Read Full Review

    A good start to the new arc. Never thought It'd say this but very much happy to have Diana back on Earth, some much needed attention finally going to Diana's supporting cast. Takara's art works well for the kind of villains Cloonan and Conrad are going for in this issue.

    Back up was a good intro to the Bana tribe of Amazons. Artemis has always been a favorite of mine, so nice to see her getting a chance to shine solo. If you read the first issue of the Nubia series, same writer, it reads as a contrast to how they bring in new recruits of Amazons.

    Marcio Takara is taking over the art of Wonder Woman for the foreseeable future and it'll take a bit of getting used to, which isn't to say his art is bad, I've just gotten too used to Travis Moore's Diana who has a very distinct look even outside of the costume.

    The New Arc is very connected to the last, which I like. Loose ends are being tied up but that's not all there is to it. I'm excited to see where Cloonrad are taking this story. Dr. Psycho doesn't seem to be the only bad lurking in the dark and I'm guessing Sigfried's grave will hold quite a few mysteries.

    As someone who has always been interested in the Bana Mighdall, I enjoyed the back-up far more than the Young Diana ones. Artemis too is a compelling chara more

    This is a very slow issue. If you're engrossed in the plot, it's no problem, but if you're kind of iffy on it like me, this will do little to change your mind.

    With the terrible afterworlds ending one would think things get only better. And would be surprised.

    Cloonrad continues to destroy everything that was sellable in Wonder Woman franchise for... I don't really know what. Psycho, as much as he was always a piece of turd turned to a caricature. Even for him. His mysogyny stops working when it becomes a comical joke instead of serving a purpose. We know your message. We literally got it in almost every issue, even if it destroyed other characters. We do. Really.

    Wonder Woman continues to being rewritten. She might have stopped talking like a drunken Thor and killing innocent controlled sentient creatures like Black Adam on a bad day, but she still is written like a semi in more
