On the cusp of a new beginning, Wonder Woman must forge a fast alliance with a wild Amazon warrior from her past to halt The Cheetah's malicious massacre! But long brewing tension turns Diana's sister against her, giving the Cheetah her opening to place yet another God to the blade of her God Killer Sword. The kicker? The Cheetah thinks she's helping Wonder Woman!

    Steve Orlando'sWonder Woman run finds its heart and starts running this issue. With next month being the big #750 blowout, it's great to see that his run already has such steady focus! Read Full Review

    If you are a fan of action and fight scenes you will enjoy Wonder Woman #83. The whole issue is one big battle scene between Diana and Cheetah. It will be interesting to see what role The Silencer plays in the rest of the story if any at all. This issue was not as comprehensive as the preceding few have been and, hopefully, the team can get back on track in the next one. With the big arrival on the final page, things look like they will start to pick up which gives us some hope. Read Full Review

    The one thing Orlando definitely gets right is his characterization of Diana " she's having a good week overall " but she's stuck in a story that doesn't quite live up to her potential. The cliffhanger introduces a major new player, so I'm hoping this run picks up as Orlando gets more into his own storyarc. Read Full Review

    “Hello, it’s me Honor Guest. I’m the one messing up your evil plan and trying to kill you, a psychotic cheetah woman. Yes, you have now seen my whole family and heard my real name. There’s no way this could ever come back to bite me lol.”

    In an action-packed installment, Wonder Woman #83 (DC Comics) continues the reign of terror brought on by the supervillainess known as The Cheetah. In the narrative, captures the power struggle within Wonder Woman, who has been stripped of her identity, losing both her lasso and tiara, to a vengeful Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva. It’s important to note that Wonder Woman wants to defeat Cheetah; not kill her. Though Barbara has humiliated her, Wonder Wonder still has faith in Cheetah’s humanity and tries so hard to save her. The second part of the epic narrative does a fantastic job setting up the epic battle between the protagonist and antagonist.

    A little convoluted but not bad overall.

    Prelude:
    One critical review giving it 2/10 and no user reviews as of writing. Well this should be fun.

    The Good:
    Nothing.

    The Bad:
    It is basic with cliche dialogue.

    The art likewise is basic.

    Why does Silencer need to be in this? Also, doesn't make any sense considering her story.

    It's boring as hell.

    Conclusion:
    Ok, it's bad but let's establish how bad. By being boring and offensive to Silencer and Cheetah's characters, I'll be kind and let it off with a 3.

    I was looking forward to Steve Orlando being back on this book (I love G Willow as a writer, but even she admitted numerous times she never got the voice of WW down), but after an issue that seemed to point to things getting back to a Rucka/Rebirth feel, this is just garbage. Adding Silencer in made no real sense which is bad, but Orlando doesn't even get her powers right! Plus, the whole thing was crushed under awful dialogue and a story that went against the narrative of the last issue and just was there to get to the cliffhanger that should have just happened months ago. There really is nothing worth reading here and the amount of reviews just shows the sorry state that Wonder Woman has found herself in.

    I was glad to see Silencer popping up again, but I feel the writer didn't actually read her book. She's written very out of character, with different abilities and a much harsher, more heartless attitude. The Silencer from her own book and Wonder Woman would probably get on great, but here they get in each other's way for no real reason.

    The issue is one long fight scene, and not a very interesting one at that.
