    Tim Seeley nails the dynamic between Steve and Diana, bringing a bit of fun to a relationship with some secrets. Christian Duce's artwork coaxes the reader into empathizing with the characters. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Andrew Fontana Jun 7, 2017

    Christian Duce's pencils are perfectly suited for bringing Seeley's script to life. Duce's artwork is crisp and detailed, perfect for all the action presented this issue. Unfortunately, all of Duce's characters have similarly drawn faces. This especially becomes obvious in the scenes involving the children, but even the Oddfellows outside of Steve look a little too interchangeable. Read Full Review

    On the whole, it's entertaining at times and looks good, but at the end of the day Wonder Woman: Steve Trevor Special #1 simply isn't special enough. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Vronique Emma Houxbois Jun 7, 2017

    As with most stories like these, its all a contrivance for Seeley to tell us who he thinks Steve Trevor is, and in the final analysis, its that Trevor is a man whos been made irreversibly aware of the impact that his gender has on the world around him and as a result has to re-evaluate the parts of him hes encouraged the most to disregard. The Steve Trevor we meet in this comic isnt woke, hes learning a new sense of awareness, and if there were ever a reason to read a comic about Steve Trevor, appreciating the nuances of a portrayal like that is about as good of one you could ask for.

    A fun one-shot for fans of the movie and a nice Rebirth of sorts for Steve Trevor. Hopefully, this leads to more from these characters! Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Dan Crotty Jun 8, 2017

    Seeley gives all members of the team time to shine and let off a few laughs, but is able to keep the story on track for a somewhat serious finale. I don't think the world is clamoring for a "Steve Rogers and his Howling Commandos" series but if their appearances in the main title (or in a few more one shots) are anything like this I'm game.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 7, 2017

    This is a good issue that may not jive well with the regular run of Wonder Woman, but was a nice spotlight for Steve Trevor nonetheless. Christian Duce's art is great and while I don't care if we see Saturna or the Oddfellows again, I enjoyed my little visit with them this week. Read Full Review

    GWW - Christopher Rodriguez Jun 7, 2017

    It wasn't the best Steve Trevor story ever made, but this issue will be an effective bridge for potential new readers who have seen the Wonder Woman movie. With that said, I think this was entertaining enough for old readers to enjoy as well. This issue accomplishes what it set out to do. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman: Steve Trevor is a fun one-shot, but you could wait for it to show up in a trade paperback. Read Full Review

    There might not be a lot here for more seasoned fans, but this is an effective and entertaining story that embraces its world, and that's not a bad thing. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Matthew Mueller Jun 7, 2017

    Overall the character's biggest weakness is how vanilla he can be, but you need aspects of that to keep everything else grounded. The book succeeds in showing why people trust him, but it doesn't necessarily succeed in showing why they love being around him. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Noah O'Toole Jun 7, 2017

    While I applaud the Steve Trevor special for introducing the diverse group of characters seen in the new Wonder Woman movie to the comic books, it did little else productive. The opening scene with Wonder Woman was cringe-worthy at best, inappropriate at worst, and out-of-place no matter how you look at it. The movie does a much better job developing Charlie, Sameer, and Chief and I recommend watching that instead. Read Full Review

    Anyone still wanting more after seeing the movie may want to pick this book up since this is a great jumping on point. Though the story has it's weak points, it's worth reading simply to see Charlie, Sameer and Chief again. Read Full Review

    Where the ongoing Wonder Woman series ranks among DC's better books these days, this one-shot feels generic by comparison. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ashley Gibbs Jun 12, 2017

    Despite my criticism I didn't hate this issue. Wonder Woman: Steve Trevor #1 had its moments and I did learn more about Steve Trevor and really enjoyed Diana's moments, though they were brief. But when my favorite part of a book is a character who shows up on maybe five pages at most, that's not a very good sign. I found this title to be pretty mediocre and as a start to what may be a series, it didn't pull me in. Overall, if you want some good Steve Trevor action you may just be better off reading a regular issue of Wonder Woman instead. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Jun 12, 2017

    The whole thing reads like some drunken fever dream of plot and dialogue that only casually matches up. It's a speed dating of two different books. Half of it is trying to be smart and witty, with children that live forever and some supernatural shit, and the other half is just bad DC writing with Trevor playing the straight man alongside awful villains.
