    The result is a rich story that shakes the very idea of Wonder Woman to the core and leaves the reader feeling like they've been punched through the heart"just as Wonder Woman feels in its final pages. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Feb 19, 2020

    To my mind, this title exemplifies the raison d'tre of DC's Black Label line perfectly. Told by a master craftsman, this story takes a beloved character out of her usual milieu, subtly reworks her origin and puts her in a gripping narrative that forces the reader – and the character, for that matter – to examine afresh what makes that character work so well. This issue does that magnificently. I can't recommend it highly enough. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Geoffrey Luu Feb 26, 2020

    Wonder Woman Dead Earth #2 overall is an impressive second of four entries in the Black Label miniseries. Daniel Warren Johnson presents a compelling, tragic, and energetic story. While Johnson's art style doesn't quite fit the tone of the story, he excels at action and atmosphere, aided by strong colors by Mike Spicer. Dead Earth #2 offers a good read on its own and a strong lead-in to the series' upcoming penultimate issue in April. Read Full Review
