    Comicosity - Matt Santori Oct 26, 2016

    In the end, theres so much vulnerability Rucka, Sharp, and Martin are able to convey in this chapter largely in scenes between Diana and Steve, but also in briefer flashes with Sasha, Ann, and our returning villainess. All this may be the calm before the storm, but what Wonder Woman #9 truly represents is the foundation for everything these characters are, and will be, as the book goes on. These are some of their most raw moments, and theres a lot to be said for having the grace and wisdom to slow down and to appreciate them. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Lauren Bullock Oct 26, 2016

    In just a few words Rucka illuminates the essence of Wonder Woman that I believe many writers struggle to balance with her. Read Full Review

    What this issue lacks in action, it certainly makes up for in solid character development, story progression, and outstanding imagery. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 26, 2016

    The mysteries are just thrown at us in this issue of Wonder Woman and man do they get me interested as hell to see what Greg Rucka has up his sleeve for our Amazon Princess.  The art and the story in this book are fantastic and this issue is just full of heart that reminds me why everyone should be reading Wonder Woman.

    All the previous issues begin to make sense, we did occasionally why we were supposed to care about Barbara's Tigress character – and it's all become clear. She's hugely important to find the Amazonians. And we do get a satisfying ending to the story, after the group figure out a way to try get Diana home. But it still raises questions, like why this has all happened in the first place. We can only assume that it's part of the same mystery that plagues The Flash. We can't wait to see where this leads.

    Comicsverse - Chris Galvin Oct 27, 2016

    WONDER WOMAN #9 begins with a recap, builds on the romance, and ends with Diana coming face to face with possible answers to her quest. It has everything a good comic should have. This creative team knows how to tell a good story without having to rely on pointless action scenes. Nothing is superfluous, and everything they do matters. It's one of DC Rebirth's strongest titles, so do yourself a favor and pick it up. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Dan Crotty Oct 28, 2016

    "Year One" continues next issue while "The Lies" is to conclude in issue #11. As much as I would like more answers than new questions in the next few chapters, if the art looks this good Rucka can take all the time he wants. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Oct 29, 2016

    Wonder Woman #9 is one of the best issues of Diana's Rebirth era thus far for its examination of her closest relationships. Rucka also brings back a character from his pre-New 52 run that makes for an intriguing development while ending on an interesting cliffhanger. Sharp's art and Martin's colours make the visuals stand out despite a couple small inconsistencies, continuing Wonder Woman's standing as one of the best looking comic books DC is publishing right now.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Oct 26, 2016

    The issue ends with an welcome cliffhanger suggesting Rucka is finally ready to reveal the truth of the Lies story arc. This issue makes for a good jumping-on point for readers curious about what's the big deal with the honorary U.S. ambassador. Read Full Review
