    This is a great start. The art is incredible throughout with several stand out moments of Diana in particular. Simone's introduction to this story is immediately interesting and fun and I cannot wait to see where she takes it next. I highly recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Christina Hamlet Sep 23, 2017

    This is what a comic should be fun but with depth, high adventure with heart. If this continues, this will indeed be a story for the ages. Read Full Review

    Icon characters meet and battle, providing unparalleled excitement for readers. The story is exceptionally true to both characters and is immensely enjoyable. The visuals are wonderful with an exceptional eye for detail. This is a pairing that should be part of every collector's cache. Recommended. Read Full Review

    GWW - Christopher Rodriguez Sep 20, 2017

    Fantastic first issue that seamlessly drops Diana into the world of Conan the Barbarian. A lot seems to happen, but it still felt like a quick read. Great art, and a great story worthy of these two iconic characters. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Michael Hale Sep 20, 2017

    With beautiful lines and character designs, a great color palette, an awesome grasp of both characters, and a promising plot (even with some shortcomings), Wonder Woman / Conan #1 is a great book that is going to be well worth the time of both Wonder Woman and Conan fans alike.

    I am sure that there will be many who may well turn their nose up at this book. That would be a shame for all those involved who have produced a book that screams quality from cover to cover. This may not be the Wonder Woman you expect to see and that, I think, is the books strength. Depending on how the rest of the series goes, this has the potential to become an excellent Elseworld type of affair. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Sep 22, 2017

    The artwork is top notch, and nobody beats Gail Simone when it comes to characterization. Wonder Woman has never been more popular than she is this year, so expect this one to fly off the shelves. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Rachel Freeman Sep 20, 2017

    I love Wonder Woman, but I hope we get a little more from Conan in the next issue. She was definitely the spotlight of this debut issue, which is great, but also I'd like to see Conan do more than kill three dudes in less than two pages and then sit and contemplate Wonder Woman's identity for the rest of the issue. Even so, you should absolutely pick up this book. I can already tell it's going to be a good read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Sep 20, 2017

    In short, this is a great start to the series. The odd bit of poor writing notwithstanding, this is a thoroughly engaging issue with great characterization that forms the basis of an already intriguing chemistry between our two lead characters. Lopestri and Ryan's artwork is dynamic and entertaining and there are hooks galore in the form of unanswered questions about Diana and an ending that promises plenty of action next time around. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Nov 6, 2017

    There's no shortage of action or battle, and both characters seem to true to themselvesas I remember them. Gail Simone has been writing Red Sonja, so Conan is hardlya great leap. The artwork is appropriately dynamic, especially the fight scenes, and seems designed to engage the reader from the get-go " something Iexpect from a pro like Simone. Read Full Review

    Wonder Woman/Conan #1 is a stirring start for an epic crossover. There's a lot of mystery left in it's wake but the connection instantly felt between these two is interesting, so much so that there's no doubt in my mind that if you follow one, the other or both you'll find plenty to love within the context of these certainly dynamic pages. So by all means add this to your pull-list because you deserve to have some fun this week! Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Sep 20, 2017

    Despite its pacing issues, the first book of the Wonder Woman/Conan crossover is enticing and engaging. Conan is a good lead, and Dianas presence helps keep the back half interesting. That, along with the amazing art, make the comic one I can easily recommend. Check it out. Read Full Review

    This is solid escapist entertainment and while it won't blow you away, it'll be fun. For keeping score at home, kill counter to see who kills more people by the end of it, Wonder Woman or Conan. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Alexander Handziuk Sep 20, 2017

    Wonder Woman/ Conan #1 is a good start to a promising miniseries, that's held back slightly by a lack of emotional resonance. That being said the night's still young, the party's still kicking and the forecast looks promising. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Bryan Brown Sep 20, 2017

    As easily as this story was to predict, I hope that Gail has a few surprises up her sleeve to use that will make up for a weak first issue. I was so excited to read this and perhaps that's where the fault lies, with my expectations. Here's hoping that it was I who missed the mark on Wonder Woman/Conan #1. Read Full Review
