    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 22, 2023

    Gods and mortals shift about in one of the most emotionally engaging issues of Wonder Woman in the past couple of years.

    Well, knock me down and call me stinky. Wonder Woman #796 is this writing team's second decent Wonder Woman issue in a row. The invasion by the Olympian Gods feels big and has stakes.

    Theres an interesting cliffhanger, but it gets continued as part of the underwhelming Lazarus Planet event and because Cloonrad has burned readers too often with a potentially interesting storyline resulting in a lackluster payoff. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #796 has solid art and an interesting cliffhanger, but those two elements are not enough to make up for the fact that this book drags and feels overly long and needlessly complex. Read Full Review
