    This playground has been great for both Batman and Superman, and seems like it will do wonders (pun intended) for this Amazonian Princess. I appreciate that DC is providing more insight into these characters for authors and artists alike. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 23, 2021

    A new anthology series is always welcome. Much can be made to work in a short-subject format that can be quite a bit more provocative than a single, long-running serial plot. There are 39 pages of content in the issue. DC can feel free to fill that space with stories that could be of any length...thus allowing the plots to dictate how long each feature needs to be. Its a refreshing format. Given a bit more interaction between the reduced color palette and the stories, this will be a real pleasure to follow in Wonder Womans 80th anniversary year.  Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman: Black and Gold Vol 1 is entertaining and made me remember how much I like Wonder Woman, just in shorter narrative spurts. We have seen a lot of stories, but it works better if she is always not necessarily the center of the story. Considering that she is a god that is maybe where she works best. But while it does go far to address some of those gaps, then the What Does not Kill You, story it doesn't do enough to restore her to her former glory. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jun 22, 2021

    When taken all together, Wonder Woman: Black and Gold #1 starts this series off with a strong series of stories that both inform the reader of some of the more subtle aspects of Dianas character, while looking good doing it. If this is the standard of work readers can expect going forward then there is plenty to look forward to from here. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jun 22, 2021

    Black and gold make for a striking pairing and should continue to lead to some intriguing stories from talented creators. As always, the hope is the majority of the anthology stories are strong enough to warrant picking up each installment. This one is split down the middle, but its good to see Wonder Woman fans getting another title to grab on a monthly basis. Read Full Review
