    Wonder Woman #800 was everything that you could ask for in a WW comic. Diana's friends and family were enlightening both for her and the readers, providing an interesting perspective as she traversed the ritual. The dream-like state was quite a complimentary concept for this celebration, as the art in the book felt seamless despite the crazy number of talented artists who contributed to the story. The cut to the future was a clever way to get readers excited about the future of the book, and I was absolutely thrilled when Lizzie revealed her full name on the final pages (no spoilers). Whether you are a regular reader of the Wonder Woman comics, or just interested in checking out the extra-sized special, you can rest assured that Wonder Woman #800 is a flawless issue.  Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 21, 2023

    Theres a recurring theme this month in nearly every appearance Wonder Woman has had--shes always late. There are elements of that in Kings story and her appearance in this months Worlds Finest...even her cameo appearance in The Flash movie thats out this month. Kind of a weird coincidence and an odd detail to add in if they did it consciously. Conrad and Cloonan have a lot to focus on for their final issue. They might be going over old tropes, but theyre doing so in a way that feels very personal to both of them. From a certain point of view, it almost even looks like theyre making a cameo this issue as the entity that speaks to Diana...theres some suggestion that it might be a stand-in for the two of them. Kind of a graceful and tasteful creator cameo if thats what theyre intending. Read Full Review

    It's a bit of an abrupt ending, with the main conflict of the run ending a few issues back, but it's a beautiful tribute to the character. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #800 ends this chapter of Dianas story in a touching way, reinforcing what makes the character so unique and special after all these years. The backup story is equally excellent and is a great setup for the next Wonder Woman book to come. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jun 20, 2023

    Wonder Woman #800 is the second part of a long goodbye from the creative team. That's it. There's no story. It's a series of vignettes where Wonder Woman meets and emotionally validates every person in her life. If that's worth the cover price for you, go for it. Better still, the backup introduces the world to Trinity, Wonder Woman's daughter who will act as the title's focus when Tom King takes over in the Fall, and Trinity is everything Wonder Woman is not and more - truly insufferable.

    Given the character's importance, one would expect that when it comes to the milestone Wonder Woman #800 the issue would feature a story befitting the character's stature. Instead, the issue delivers a long, weirdly toned trek that has nothing to do with Wonder Woman at all, missing what is meant to be a well-intentioned love letter to the iconic character to instead serve up head pats for everyone around her and once again deny one of the greatest members of DC Comics's pantheon her due.

    Wonder Woman #800 was a generic ending of a failed run and nothing but a collectible first appearance of Wonder Woman's daughter.  The art is great throughout, but unless you are doing some speculating here, there is no reason to buy this. Read Full Review

    Another week, another end to a historic run on a female superhero title. Last week it was Kelly Thompson’s run on Captain Marvel coming to a close and this week we have Becky Cloonan and Michael Conrad’s final time with Diana with the conclusion of the ‘Whatever Happened to the Warrior of Truth?’ arc in Wonder Woman #800. Cloonan and Conrad have been at the helm for the ongoing series since Wonder Woman #770 back in 2020.

    Without turning this into a rehash of my ode to Thompson’s work on Captain Marvel, it’s hard not to get sentimental when a creative team spends so long with a character without readers becoming fatigued or uninterested. Cloonan and Conrad have kept the concept of hope alive and well during their run more

    The final arc of Cloonrad's run has been one of the best parts of it, but I can't help but feel like this run was yet another missed opportunity for this character.

    I’m not a huge fan of the “it’s a milestone issue we have to touch on everything” setups but this one is actually done well. The art on the first 5 pages is absolutely stunning. If it’s not sold out and you see it on the shelf, at least look at the art on those pages.

    Annoyed me in Cloonan/Conrad's portion that Batman and Superman got more page time and attention than other Wonder Woman characters like Artemis, Nubia, and Hippolyta. It was bad enough their sons were in King's story but the first part didn't need them.

    King's story was clearly prologue territory but I liked what I saw of Trinity/Lizzie. Just hope Superman II and Batman Jr. don't take up much more screentime than other Wonder Woman characters.

    First, the fact this is a celebration issue and they only have two writing teams on this is a testament to how little they care for Wonder Woman. There are many good writers (from years ago) that they could have got but they just dont care.

    "Happened to the Warrior of Truth?" should never have been the title of the story. To waste such an important story name on writers like CloonRad is a disgrace. That being said this might be one of their best stories this entire disastrous run. I mean at the end of the day it is just WW telling people they are great and the other people going 'No, you are great as well." No creativity, no greatness, no nothing. Still out of pity that this is the best they have done I will give it an 8/10. more

    My feelings on this conclusion are similar to the last issue. It’s touching to see what Diana means to other characters, and all the guests artists together make for interesting viewing, but as a story it’s a bit lackluster.

    The set up for Tom King’s run had me interested, but I don’t think I could take more banter from Jon Kent, Damien, and Trinity—and I like those first two characters a lot! It felt like King was really forcing the idea that they had a long and colorful history with Trinity, but with absolutely no subtlety or depth. The final page was a good hook, but I’ll be waiting an arc or two before I get into the new run, if I pick it up at all.

    All I can say is wow, what a piece of garbage. The only reason I bought this was to see where Tom King might be taking it. The first 3/4 of the book is a complete waste of time and Tom King's "Trinity"/"Liz" comes off as a complete bitch. Not a way to start a new character, who doesn't look that much different from Yara Flor. Her first line of dialogue is to insult Superman and Batman of the future after she was the one that was late. Wonder Woman obviously didn't teach her very well. And she's the leader? WTF. No way. Not buying for a second. Another crap WW book coming up by Tom King. When will she get the writer she deserves?

    Becky Clueless and Michael Conman have ruined Wonder Woman like no one ever did with a character, especially in that Trial of the Amazons crap, where Wonder Woman was a side character. Good riddance to the two!!
