Art by Terry Dodson, Paulina Ganucheau, and more! A landmark two-part celebration of Wonder Woman's adventures begins, as an all-star lineup of creators asks, Whatever happened to the Warrior of Truth? After the events of Revenge of the Gods, Diana enters the caves of Themyscira's Healing Island for a much-needed respite, but she emerges someplace unexpected...the fantastical dreams of her greatest allies and enemies! The startling visions lead directly to next month's Wonder Woman #800 and new twists in the saga of the Amazing Amazon!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 17, 2023

    The events of the past couple of years reach a climax as Conrad and Cloonans run (which began in early 2021) comes to an end. The thirty-issue cycle should meet with an impressive ending if the lead-in issue is any indicator at all. Having been around for the better part of a century, Wonder Woman has periodically been summed up in anniversary issues countless times. It appears as though Conrad and Cloonan may have found a fresh approach to an anniversary celebration. Read Full Review

    As we slowly wind down to the ending of this fan favorite run, CloonRad continues to deliver one of the funnest runs on Wonder Woman that Ive read over the last 30 years. The team, with a veritable whos who of artists, come together to give us a fun look at how Dianas cast feel about the amazing Amazon. Its been one heck of a ride, and Michael and Becky have made it a memorable one. Theyre not just writers working on my favorite comic characters, Ive come to view them as fellow fans, and even friends, whove wanted to share their own love for the character, and got the chance to do it. Ill miss them, but will follow them wherever they go next. Read Full Review

    With only two issues to go in this run and a crossover taking up much of the last few months, Cloonan and Conrad have a lot to wrap up and little time to do it in. So it's no surprise that this penultimate issue is packeda massive jam issue featuring multiple different timelines. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd May 16, 2023

    Wonder Woman #799 allows the reader to reflect on not only what Diana means to her friends and allies, but also what Wonder Woman means to the reader. It's a lovely touch that works so well because Cloonan and Conrad understand the core themes that are part of the character, those that have been there since the beginning and those that have been added on and BECOME a part of the character over the years. However, the use of Golden Age motifs allows for a particular kind of nostalgia and as the reader hits the final page revealing the title, it all makes sense as chapter one really does echo the tone and theme of Alan Moore's classic, "What Ever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez May 16, 2023

    Wonder Woman #799 kicks off a new arc wherein Wonder Woman and her friends experience a surreal set of dreams that eventually lead to something sinister. The story is fine if you accept the dreams are intentionally weird and surreal, but the differences in art quality between the assorted artists drafted for this issue are off-putting.

    Wonder Woman #799 is really interesting and honestly, I wish that Conrad and Cloonan had spent less time with the previous arc/crossover and more on this one because with just two issues left in their run, this already feels rushed. Read Full Review
