Wonder Woman #41 Review

by Hussein Wasiti on February 28, 2018

Writer: James Robinson

Artist: Stephen Segovia

Colourist: Romulo Fajardo Jr

Letterer: Saida Temofonte


This issue is hilariously and horrendously padded and nonsensical. My feelings on James Robinson's run on this book has gotten more negative as the issue count has gone on, but he has reached a whole new low here. I say this a lot, but this was filler of the highest order and it's intolerable.


The first seven pages of this are dedicated entirely to the slow Darkseid plot, so we don't see any Wonder Woman until they're done. And what do we get involving Wonder Woman? She tells Steve Trevor that she's been in some fights, it may be connected to someone she's tangled with in the past, and that's it. This story has absolutely no bearing on whatever overall story Robinson is attempting to achieve. It's garbage, plain and simple.


The art is really good though! Stephen Segovia seems to have found a new home with this book, which is good since I like his art and it's good to see him on a big book like this. For the material he's given here, he did a fantastic job. His work combined with Romulo Fajardo Jr's colours make for a great combination. The final page in particular is truly gorgeous.


As you can tell, this is a very short review. It's not my fault; James Robinson wrote a completely trashy story that makes me embarrassed for him. It's clear he has nothing to work with and he doesn't have a story he wants to truly tell. If I were buying this book, I would have dropped it a long time ago. Stay away from this series while you still can.
