From the cover to the last page, this was a superb issue. A proverbial wet dream for fans of The Fourth World. And who knew it would happen in the pages of Wonder Woman?! Similar to Azzarello’s Orion, the updated vision of New Genesis is inspired and original, while simultaneously remaining true to the original. As soon as they walked through that Boom Tube, I wanted to go right back.

Chiang’s artwork in this issue was the cleanest and most pristine it’s been in a while, reminding us again of why he is so celebrated whenever he manages to squeeze out a full issue. Wilson also deserves credit for coloring New Genesis and its inhabitants in such a way that it makes you believe its everything the Highfather claims it is.

Azzarello continues to knock it out of the park with every new issue. The only crime present here is that this title stands so grievously apart from the rest of the DCU, in both story and quality of storytelling.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 5 - Excellent


  1. Yeah, I’m right there with you. The series has been “good” for the last year or so, but this issue was “great” and reminded me of why I’ve stuck with it for so long.

  2. I dropped this book a few months ago due to the meandering plot, but after viewing a preview of this issue I knew I had to get back on. The coloring is AMAZING and New Genesis has never looked better.

  3. Gettin this shit in trades. So dope. One of a few bright spots in the New 52. The best WW interpretation so far in my opinion. The story does wander a bit, but the tone and art are spot on. WW actually looks Greek too, for the first time I can remember.
