Publisher’s Summary: “Diana and her compatriots have crossed from our world into a shattered land where no earthly feet have fallen in eons…but that doesn’t mean that everything there is dead and gone! If this is indeed the road to the lost Themyscira, Wonder Woman will face any danger to reach its end—but that doesn’t mean that those she’s traveling with will survive!


Wonder Woman and her friends find themselves in a precarious situation as the Minotaur proves to be the least of the trio’s problems. Still, through the darkness, Wonder Woman finds the companions she’s been looking for. Now, all she has to do is keep her friends alive.

Wonder Woman (2016-) #72 is a kick-ass issue: not only does the group take down the Minotaur, but they face-off against a horde of underlings that rise up from the darkness. G. Willow Wilson has taken Wonder Woman on quite a journey of discovery, and we’re finally starting to see the payoff. For the first time in a long time, Wonder Woman has people she feels comfortable fighting alongside instead of just protecting, which makes this issue a significant milestone in her journey.

While the art portrayed the more personal moments of the issue, Tom Derenick and Jesus Merino really captured the fight scenes. I’m not surprised to see Wonder Woman kick serious ass, but it’s the cohesive bond between the characters that really stands out in the art. Of course, I also enjoyed Derenick and Merino’s depiction of the horde of underlings.

The Bottom Line

Wonder Woman (2016-) #72 is a must-read for fans; G. Willow Wilson finally begins to move Wonder Woman towards the light and away from the darkness that has recently consumed her.
