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

    Things get complicated for Young Dianas coming of age as the contemporary Wonder Woman settles down into a more relaxed formality with an old friend and a couple of lovers in the present. (The two men shes loved are living together. The initial shock has worn off, Diana recently said of the situation. And Ive decided that I dont hate it. Its been one of the better lines in Conrad and Cloonans run so far.) Once again, the number of people working on a single issue of Wonder Woman is impressive, but each issue is big enough to feel like something out of the Golden Age...something much bigger than a modern comic book. It may only be two features, but the editors make it feel like at least a couple of complete issues between the two features. Read Full Review

    The verdict is in: "The Villainy of Our Fears" is a hit! The creative team continues to deliver some of the best modern Wonder Woman stories in her 80+ year history. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Aug 9, 2022

    This weeks issue was wildly reminiscent of the classics but decoupled from the heavy disposition commonly coined with the contemporary comics' action, adventure, and graphic flavor. WONDER WOMAN #790 may not be a great jumping-on point but it still continues to be a ripe read for all ages. Nevertheless, to the WONDER WOMAN fan inquiring for a bit more significance, this arc remains more surface level, which is ultimately fine for an issue banking more on entertainment and a classic feel. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Aug 9, 2022

    Wonder Woman #790 is yet again, another thoroughly enjoyable comic book. I must confess to head scratching at the criticism levied at this series. I can only imagine that those who aren't enjoying it just aren't on the same page. The series is blending elements from Diana's many eras quite well into something all its own. Something special is going on in Wonder Woman. You should check it out. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 9, 2022

    A lot is wrapped up in this issue, and while the three different art teams don't help it feel cohesive, there is a cliffhanger that hints at something much bigger coming. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #790 ends "The Villainy of Our Fears" arc and while it's an arc that has been very uneven in its execution, it ends reasonably well. Read Full Review
