There's something evil afoot in the heart of the Amazon rain forest, and Wonder Woman is on a mission to save the innocents caught in the crossfire! As a mass of dark energy envelops a pocket of the planet, Diana must use her golden lasso to keep tethered to reality as she ventures inside, or face being corrupted by the energy herself! But there's more than just a battle with the Dark Fates at play here...something else lurks in the heart of the Amazon that will shape the future of the DC Universe for years to come...

    DC has made strides to make annuals not the typical throwaway meaningless reads. The impact of this story should be felt long-term on the title and hopefully well see Orlando and Herbert collaborate real soon again. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Aug 18, 2020

    If the plethora of reasons above wasnt enough to make Wonder Woman Annual #4 a must read for fans, the title ends with a revelation that could alter the course of not only Dianas life, but of all Amazonians. It feels like an exciting time to be a fan of Wonder Woman. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 20, 2020

    Current author Mariko Tamaki may be taking Diana in a whole new direction with the series. Still, Orlando seems to have a solid enough grasp on the best elements of his run on the series to make for one satisfying annual. From Annual #4 on, Wonder Womans primary direction is moved solidly in the direction that is firmly guiding it away from more magical and mythological concerns to more mainstream superhero territory.

    It seems like Orlando is teasing a "greater Themyscira" with a last-act reveal that I don't know if he'll ever get to follow up on, but this is a promising finale to a strong run. Read Full Review

    Overall, I was never all that invested in this issue. It's fine; Orlando characterizes Wonder Woman well and the art is good. For me, it just never connected and I found it to be a little boring. Read Full Review

    This does succeed at being an epilogue of sorts to both Steve Orlando and G. Willow Wilson's Wonder Woman canon, but it's far from the best issue of Wonder Woman you can pick up right now. Read Full Review

    This was not an enjoyable read. It’s actually kind of poorly written. How is the lost tribe of Amazons completely hidden from the world and yet fully integrated into Brazil? Like they’re all speaking Portuguese? They have bike lanes and stop signs? They wear glasses and modern clothing? Nobody noticed a part of the coastline that they just couldn’t enter or see??

    Incredible art by Jack Herbert and colourist Gabe Eltaeb, and Orlando's script is at once perfect for a one and done annual, yet screaming for a follow up arc to the secret uncovered by Diana and the amazons.

    Hopefully Mariko Tamaki will do just that once her already thrilling Maxwell Lord arc is over.

    Man. It is trying really hard to pull me into liking this WW issue, but like what else Orlando has written for her, its just not doing it. This was a fine annual. When I see Orlando, I see a writer brought in to do something average, not good, just average. And this annual felt like another one of those issues, despite this one shot having huge impact and unraveling big revelations that will affect the overall WW/Amazonian mythos.

    It hardcore embroiled in this really overused style of WW where hope defeats evil and WW preaching her view of the world and society for 30 minutes, walls of unnecessary texts, cliche fights between WW and three generic ass witches called Dark Fates, and a really lousy ending to that fight. I just don' more

    This was so incredibly boring. I could barely get through it. Thank goddess that Steve Orlando's run is over. It was such a pain. The art couldn't save this awful slog of an annual.
