As Cizko continues to build his forces, Wonder Woman discovers that she will not have to face the threat of this new "Villainy Inc." alone. Diana is joined by friends old and new, including Steve Trevor and Etta Candy, now operating as agents of Checkmate, along with displaced Asgardian heartthrob Siegfried. But as Cizko continues to gain power and influence, will this be enough to stop the villain once known as Dr. Psycho, and uncover the dark nature of who is really calling the shots? Plus, a new chapter of the Adventures of Young Diana!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 15, 2022

    The big reveal at issues end finds the Duke of Deception making his first appearance in quite some time. The villain has always had such great potential thats never really come together. Conrad and Cloonan have a good track record. Theres reason to hope that this might be one of the more interesting appearances. Back in the 1960s, writer Robert Kanigher would pair stories of Wonder Woman with her adventures as a teen. There were serious continuity problems with the format that Kanigher wouldnt have been bothered with. Its nice to see a similar format brought to life in the current series with a back-up by Jordie Bellaire that smartly engages with the person she would be come as an adult. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jun 17, 2022

    Wonder Woman #788 is an interesting issue as it takes classic themes first present in the Golden Age feature and modernizes them. The approach and content calls back to a lot of Golden Age aspects. It's an astute move and it adds an extra layer or three to the storytelling. There are multiple levels on which this can be appreciated. It's pretty darn FUN too! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jun 14, 2022

    The artwork in this issue is crafted in two different styles, each perfectly suitable for the tale they represent. The A-Story uses a traditional comic styling to create a serious and intense mood, while the B-Story has a youthful feel that is connective to Young Dianas innocence and much simpler life in Themyscira.

    This book in particular just feels without spark and energy. The art isn't bad, but it doesn't make up for what feels boring on the page, narrative-wise. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 14, 2022

    Wonder Woman #788 slightly advances Cizko's Wonder Woman haters club plan but doesn't do so in a compelling way.  Instead, things that seem essential get discarded almost immediately, only to have the plot bogged down by nonsense.  The issue does look good but is such a dull read that I can't recommend it to anyone, not even Wonder Woman fans.
