    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 Aug 25, 2021

    The series is already halfway finished, and it feels like its just getting going. They are endless possibilities in 7-8 page standalone stories that havent really had much of a chance to develop. Its nice to see DC giving them a home in series like Wonder Woman Black and Gold, but mini-series feel far too limited to really explore the depth and breadth of storytelling possible in short-shorts. The multi-faceted nature of Wonder Woman makes her a perfect fit for an anthology like Black and Gold. Read Full Review

    A slight mixed bag and some of these stories could have used more pages, but some were stunning. Read Full Review

    While it's certainly worth picking up if you're a fan of all things Wonder Woman, this latest entry could have done more to break the mold. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman is DC's Spirit of Truth and this issue proves it. While she's a warrior, she's also a diplomat, to the point some writers seem to forget that. Plus she's aspirational enough for people to want to be her and find the confidence to show truths about themselves. Some truths are hard, kind of like with how despite a legendary feat of moving the Earth away from the sun, it can't stop global warming. Some truths are so absurd that people will refuse to believe them; like saying that even in her spy days Wonder Woman stayed the warrior.

    "We Built A New World" - Hmm, rather touching Diana/Steve story. Probably the best of this issue.

    "Espionage" - Fairly amusing "gritty update" on Mod-era/Emma Peel knock-off Wonder Woman.

    "Beat The Heat and "Do No Harm" - Grouping these together because they both cover the same topic pretty much so kind of odd from an editorial standpoint to include them not only in the same issue but also back-to-back. I think it's pretty much a coin flip on which one you'd prefer. I think I preferred "Beat the Heat" though Vixen's cameo in "Do No Harm" was nice.

    "Stolen Lasso of Truth" - Thought this was one was pretty good.

    This is a mixed bag. These anthologies almost always are. There's just not much to say after a while about these color anthologies.

    Venditti's story is good and I also can't not like Epting's art and I guess the last story is decent. The others are just pure cringe, they would benefit if they would actually add writers based on their talents, not their sex.
