Spinning out of Trial of the Amazons... What lies in the treacherous waters surrounding the island of Themyscira? Wonder Woman takes a deep dive into her culture looking for answers to Altuum's claims of living in paradise before the Amazons ever arrived at the request of the gods. Could the legends told in her childhood all be lies?

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 11, 2022

    The current run of Wonder Woman has been a great deal of fun. It was inevitable that the two-feature format would eventually land on an issue without a whole lot of physical action. There's more than enough going on in both stories to maintain interest from cover to cover. It's odd to have a drama-heavy issue that has as much going on as there is in Wonder Woman #787.  Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz May 10, 2022

    With an end to the trial, we begin this new chapter of Dianas life, and CloonRad are hell bent on making this next turn in Dianas life as exciting as possible. Whether that be with Siggy, and Steve, or the villains, both old and new, that theyre bringing us, I cant wait to see what else theyre going to come up with. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott May 10, 2022

    This chapter begins a new plotline in the Wonder Woman saga and ushers in Diana's return to man's world. I feel that this story did a good job of wrapping up Diana's time on Themyscira and giving the appropriate weight to the struggles she previously endured. I must say, I found it a bit odd that in the second half of the story the tone shifted from a melancholy reflection to a genial buddy-cop type air. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd May 10, 2022

    Long ago, comic book stories were mostly short, quick foe of the month tales. Over time they've developed into chronicles of a character's life. Wonder Woman #787 demonstrates this. Every day isn't saving the world. Sometimes you have to come back to your life after an interruption and that's what happens this issue. There a few balls still in the air as mysteries aren't always solved immediately and one's personal life is often complicated. This is Diana's life and we're getting the full spectrum of her experiences, including the formative moments from her youth. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 10, 2022

    It's all a little too on-the-nose, the way Mark Russell's satire sometimes gets, but the end of the issue shows that he has much more sinister plans than just hate speech. Overall, a strong transition issue. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu May 10, 2022

    WONDER WOMAN #787 tries to reconstitute WONDER WOMAN into the fold with Etta and Steve to regain the team dynamic that once was the roots of this series. Readers, that's not a bad thing. Plus, it's done in an easygoing manner that's overly reminiscent of classic villainy without the weighty nature normally associated with the current comics conundrum that is present-day action, adventure, as well as graphic overtones.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 10, 2022

    If they can make this work, it could be the most interesting development on the book in many months. Their track record doesnt support this optimism, but theres still a sliver of hope yet that this book can get turned around into a must-read standout. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 10, 2022

    Wonder Woman #787 recaps and ties up some loose ends from the Trial of the Amazons Event before getting back to Cizko and his nonsense.  He's been hanging in the background so long that it doesn't feel all that fresh or exciting.  On the other hand, we are moving ahead, so that's something.

    There is a lot going on in Wonder Woman #787 and unfortunately it's kind of a mess. Read Full Review

    The "is that it?" resolution of the Altuum plot is a weak start to the issue, but after that it picks up nicely, establishing Steve, Siggy and Etta as a friend group rather than simply a bunch of people who know Wonder Woman and introducing a promising new Villainy Incorporated led by an MRA Youtuber Dr. Psycho (running with the only good idea in Morrison's otherwise subpar Wonder Woman Earth One). Emanuela Lupacchino provides some lovely work; her storytelling skills in action scenes can be variable, but a low-key issue like this plays to her strengths.

    The resolution of the Altuum plot spilling over from TotA pulls down an otherwise enjoyable issue.

    Steve and Siegfried are an absolute delight, Dr. Psycho is creepy af, and Diana has her hands full of problems already.

    Thanks to Antiope the Young Diana backup feels more relevant to the present-day story than its past iterations.

    Wonder Woman deserves better writers.

    Reads like awful fan fiction. Tell me you nothing about DC Comics and it’s characters without telling me…
