As the trial for all humankind begins, with Wonder Woman serving as the defendant for all of Earth, godlike cosmic accusers present an extensive list of charges against humanity. Does the capacity for good outweigh the great evils done to one another and the entire planet? Diana must believe it does…or else all the people she has sworn to protect will face certain extinction. From Harley Quinn writer Stephanie Phillips and acclaimed artist Mike Hawthorne (Daredevil, Deadpool) comes the next installment of Wonder Woman: Evolution.

    Much like Diana, we're consistently kept guessing over what's real and what isn't, and the cliffhanger brings into stark relief just how psychologically harrowing that is. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 19, 2022

    Sci-fi authors always want to judge humanitys crimes. Theyre not alone, of course. (Its a big population. Every one of us hates the aggregate population for different reasons. Theres a lot to hate about us. Its fun.) The weird preoccupation with judgment of the species DOES find a reasonably unique space in Phillips tale, which casts an interesting light into the nature of Diana and the guilt she carries for all that she is unable to do. If Phillips focusses on THAT for the rest of the series, it could land with a satisfying conclusion in a couple of months.  Read Full Review

    I realize that that is a matter of taste, but honestly, the art here looks phoned in, poorly considered, and just flat in every sense of the word. It pulls everything else down with it leaving the whole issue just a mediocre at best meh. Read Full Review

    I liked this a little less despite the art continuing to improve. I just don't feel the ending.

    I generally enjoyed the issue. Its not entirely clear whats going on but thats kinda the point. What DOES happen is pretty nice to look at though. I love Hawthornes art style and how he draws Diana. Very heroic, classic feeling but also modern.

    The ending scene is actually pretty interesting of a morality play. Im excited to see where they go with this. Its a simple issue but it does its job.

    I liked this up until the part with Silver Swan, I just can't buy the victim narrative Phillips is selling for her.
