An EVENT LEVIATHAN tie-in issue! Years ago, Wonder Woman saved young Maria Paul from an explosive standoff between A.R.G.U.S. and the insurgent Sons of Liberty. By pulling that child from an inferno of hate, Wonder Woman changed her life. Diana watched Maria grow up into one of A.R.G.U.S.'s top agents. Every step of the way, Wonder Woman mentored Maria, taking her on her first mission - a daring rescue in Gorilla City. But when Leviathan decimates A.R.G.U.S., Diana's absence causes Maria to question everything, pushing her toward Leviathan itself. And when she does... the truth about her fiery rescue by Wonder Woman might just kill her.

    While this isn't close to being a necessary tie-in to Event Leviathan, it's a nice look at what to expect from Steve Orlando's upcoming story in Wonder Woman.  It's a quick read that looks great and that's good enough for me. Read Full Review

    Overall, the major parts of this issue hit all the right notes and I'm excited to see where Orlando takes the title. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 4, 2019

    Marion's art veers about as close to Michael Turner as you can. Some panels of Helen up close could be Kara from Turner's take on Supergirl. It is highly stylized. And I actually think it worked quite well for this story. But for me, the biggest thing was Diana sounding like the Diana I want to read. I'll be glad when Orlando takes over the Wonder Woman title again. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Nov 4, 2019

    This is a fun and compelling issue until the ending. When it's just a story about Diana and this A.R.G.U.S. agent she saved as a kid trying to protect the citizens of Gorilla City, it's great. The writing is solid and it's a lot of fun. The ending and the nature of this being a tie in takes it down for me. It's still enjoyable for the most part but DC needs to relax on these big event stories. Read Full Review

    Steve Orlando & Co. deliver a by the numbers but satisfying Wonder Woman issue that's brought down slightly by its event crossover ties. Read Full Review

    Problematic and poor art, yet the epilogue teases exciting things to come. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Nov 8, 2019

    I really wanted more from Steve Orlando's big Wonder Woman debut, but the story - unfocused and relatively by-the-numbers, but still a decent read nonetheless - is hampered by glaringly dated art that sticks out like a sore thumb in readers' eye. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Oct 30, 2019

    Its emphasis on individual failings and unwillingness to look at the systemic issues underlying obvious facsimiles makes for some tortured narration and an ultimately shallow adventure. There's still a lot to look forward to in the coming months, but the future for this particular Wonder Woman villain appears far brighter than her origin story. Read Full Review
