    Kieron McKeown has some great visual moments throughout this issue, but the best thing about the art is the outright menace and fury of Cheetah. Read Full Review

    Though, for the time being, they did a great job with Wonder Woman #82. I am hopeful we will get more of Diana's personal life in their run. It is constantly exciting when a new creative team comes on a book and I am waiting to see what they bring to the character. If Wonder Woman #82 is a sign of things to come, then I believe the book is in solid hands. Read Full Review

    Lots of promise based on this issue and the annual, but I think it'll be the second story arc before we get a firm idea of what Orlando's run will actually look like. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman #82 is a solid showing for this new creative team despite the limitations placed on them. Read Full Review

    Steve Orlando starts another run on Wonder Woman and while not a ton happens in this issue overall, there are a bunch of cool characters, and some really nice nods to the beginning of this book's Rebirth story.  Add some really good art and we have a good start that hopefully gets even better from here.

    This issue was good but not great. The art is good and there are a lot of solid scenes. Orlando adds some new dimensions to Cheetah using Rucka's previous run as a springboard which is cool. But it's a little dull for me. I feel like this Year of the Villain thing has outstayed its welcome and I'm ready for something else. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Nov 18, 2019

    Wonder Woman#82 struggles to tell a cohesive narrative and wields a core foe of the title character with all the subtlety of a brick bat. The timeline makes no sense, the villain is one-dimensional, and nothing new or unique is said about the title character. For all the hype leading up to writer Steve Orlando's ongoing debut on this book, the end result falls far short of expectations. Read Full Review

    It's another slow journey between two points that fails to build suspense or stakes"a slog towards a repeated showdown with no clear purpose. Read Full Review
