    You must pick up this annual! Even if you find any of the major plot points confusing you will be that gobsmacked by the art that you won't care. This story is easily one of James Robinson's best since he took over the Wonder Woman writing duties so you really have no excuse not to buy it. Read Full Review

    The story for this annual is solid, but it's the art that really steals the show. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Quinn Morris Jun 6, 2018

    A very solid one-shot story that did a good job of tying into the ongoing plot as well. Read Full Review

    The artwork for this issue was wonderful. Diana always looks so striking in her Star Sapphire garb, and this time is no exception. It's arguable better than previous designs as well. The way Karnell's power was portrayed and how it affected the Star Sapphires was shockingly brutal but artistically very well done. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Christina Hamlet Jun 23, 2018

    As a single issue, this is one of the better issues of late if for no other reason than Wonder Woman is the central figure throughout, a quality that has been missing in the regular series of late. But as an annual, the story was fairly sparse despite the extra pages. The artwork helped the book along, but as it was it was a confusing use of a special issue. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Joshua Page Jun 6, 2018

    While Wonder Woman Annual #2's dialogue and story are intriguing, the artwork and clichs hold it back from being the perfect issue. However, on its own, with no prior knowledge of the previous story arc, Wonder Woman Annual #2 could, in fact, be a quintessential Wonder Woman issue. In that regard, it is a must-read. If you were expecting something new that did not play it safe, then you might be disappointed. We shall see if Wonder Woman #48 will give us something that treads new ground. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 6, 2018

    While this Annual doesn't put on the brakes to our Dark Gods story like I feared it would, what it does though is pad out an over sized issue that barely feels like it was needed in the first place, especially since the explanation behind our antagonists doesn't exactly make sense to me.  The art in this issue was great, but the story was lacking.

    This is definitely an improvement over the rest of the run, mostly for the lack of Jason, but even in a story that's all about her, it still feels like this run has very little to do with Wonder Woman. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman Annual #2 is a jumble of bad writing and passable to gorgeous art. Read Full Review

    I didn't love this issue. Some of the colors are great and the two sections of the more abstract art are great. But the main art is just okay. And I found the story to be a let down. Most of what I was excited about in this story was immediately dumped down the drain. It's not horrible but I think this is a generic issue that could have been a lot more. Read Full Review

    It's a gratuitous chapter in a story already bogged down by bad ideas. Leave it. Read Full Review
