    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 Oct 27, 2021

    The many lives of Wonder Woman find a graceful home in quick, little flash fiction narratives that have been summoned into existence to celebrate Diana's 80th anniversary. It's been an entertaining journey. There is one issue remaining in this anthology before DC turns its attention to a larger, more integrated tapestry of different titles that will come to define the character in the next year and beyond.

    Even if you're not a fan of the Amazon, these stories might change your tune as not only do the stories seem timeless, but they are able to use the "Black and Gold" aspect of the series to great effect. I'd be hard-pressed to think of which issue is the best, but the series remains a classic. Read Full Review

    The stories here are all strong, but it's the last one that really makes this a must-read issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Clint Theron Oct 26, 2021

    Wonder Woman: Black and Gold #5 is another fantastic entry to this anthology series exploring the different facets of Wonder Woman and her mythology. We get a grand adventure to Hell with Hellzapoppin', solve a ghostly mystery with Beyond the Horizon, a fun Silver Age battle with How the Wonder Woman Was Brought Low by a Mouse But Captured the Stars, a glimpse into Antiope's history with Diana in Feet of Clay, and revisit a long-forgotten foe-turned-friend in Memories of Hator. Next issue is the last and I'll miss this series terribly. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 1, 2021

    Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor are captured by Dr. Cyber and Mouse Man while the villains are breaking the Human Firework out of a secret government laboratory in "How Wonder Woman was Brought Low by a Mouse but Captured by the Stars" which is stuffed full of Silver Age-style goofiness. And "Memories of Hator" recounts Wonder Woman's first encounter with former enemy turned friend Badra. Read Full Review
