Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

Parts of this arc just seem confusing to me. Like, why did Darkseid need to transport part of Argus to the jungle in order to start is “ Stargate”? I assumed they had the relics...

Wonder Woman #44

By: James Robinson, Emanuela Lupacchino
Released: Apr 11, 2018

"AMAZONS ATTACKED" part four! When last they met, Wonder Woman was robbed of a chance to meet Darkseid in single combat-and she's certain she'd be able to take him down. At last, she's going to get her wish-but with Darkseid at full power, is she still sure she'll survive?

I'm with you there. Darkseid needs to be a world ending threat and this issue was very underwhelming...the art is so good though!

Dispatchdcu - Apr 16, 2018

Agreed the art is fantastic! Darkseid should draw the attention of everyone not just Argus and Wonder Woman. I want more.. thanks for the reply!

Here we are, 2018 and I stumbled upon tons of issues of this run for dirt cheap at a Dimple records of all places. I wanted to read this when it first came out but never ended up doing it so I'll review the issues I end up getting. Also, I wish Comicbook round up would correct the cover pictures for this series so people wouldn't mistake it for the modern Ms. Marvels. Some of the reviews are actua more

The Brood invasion may not be as it seems. Are the Brood actually looking to attack humanity? Or are they searching for sanctuary? A new and terrible Marvel villain is unveiled in this issue!

Great issue, great art and fantastic dramatic scenes. The fight scenes are awesome and this issue kicks up the stakes for this series 10 fold. Again, I love Rogue and Gambit's chemistry. What I am beginning to realize I love about the way this series is written is that the focus is on 2 characters...this give you so much more space to develop them and focus on telling a grand story rather than see more

Just got the first issue and I totally enjoyed it. Artwork is great and the writer really captures the snarky chemistry we have grown to love between the two. The chemistry and banter probably is the greatest part of the story so far with a classic "man pursuing a woman" vibe to it. Definitely looking to see where it goes.

A interesting first issue overall, with a good balance of action and context. The story is not the most original as a LOT a movies and comics have treaded the ground of the retired assassin turned family woman/man whose past comes back to haunt her/him. Its connection to the events in Metal are literally non existing so it's a warning for those expecting it as shown on the cover. Honor's metahuman more

Pretty Good

Story is surprisingly really good, makes me want to continue reading the series. JRjr and the colorist needs to step up their game though, especially since this comic is an artist driven comic.

Overall: 86/100

Really great issue.For one the writing reminds me a lot of Chuck Dixon's Robin,Nightwing and Detective comics runs,were the main character monologs,while fighting making the fight more engaging if you ask me.The characters seem pretty likeable.Honor seems like an interesting character and we learn a lot,about her,like how his powers work,how experienced she is in his old job.Just to name a few,alt more

Totally on the "faces" part. One of the reasons I rated it a little down from a 9 was the art.

I decided to check this out at the recommendation of some comic reviewers I really like and let me tell you, both the description and the cover art do not do the comic justice. The story actually really hooked me and has me wishing this series was at least bi-montly. While the story is just getting started, it holds great promise and has so many set ups for completely heart breaking moments.

Having strayed away from comics since around Civil War I times, I came back recently to find the Marvel landscape unrecognizable and crammed with odd new characters piggy backing off the mantles of characters I loved instead of trying to create legacies of their own. While my adventure back into marvel comics was looking grim, I stumbled upon this and man was I pleased! A comic that wasn't like wa more

It's a well written story that sets up a potentially very fun series. While lacking in action, it does compensate with character development and makes the perfect launch pad for the upcoming events. The art is stunning though every pages and the colors are great. The nostalgia is strong with this one and Zdarksy knows it and uses it to its full potential. At this point, pretty much everyone hopes more

I loved this issue. I don't read much from Marvel these days as I find their books mostly unreadable, but seeing this (and hoping for an eventual FF return) prompted me to pick this up. I'm very happy that I did.
