Praise For War

"Expect a lot more Wonder Woman fans after a few issues of this book."--USA Today
 
"This is clear storytelling at its best....It's an intriguing concept and easy to grasp. The reader doesn't need to know that much about Wonder Woman because she is, well, Wonder Woman."--The New York Times

"It's a different direction for Wonder Woman, but one still steeped in mythology, and I think this is the start of great things from Azzarello and Chiang."--The Onion/A.V. Club

"There's actually a lovely balance between being just wordy enough and going mute to let the art do the heavy lifting. And let me tell you, Cliff Chiang's art does said heavy lifting with nary a grunt. He handles suspense, gore, and action all with aplomb. His line-work is loose enough to avoid being static, and yet maintains a confident line."--Ain't It Cool News
