From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up—War and genocide result from a brutal death match between Superman and Wonder Woman, in one of the most riveting "Wonder Woman" story lines in recent years. Under the mind control of the sadistic Maxwell Lord, Superman is sent on a violent path of destruction, attempting to kill not only Batman, but Wonder Woman as well. As this thrilling battle ensues, she learns that the only way to quell Superman is by permanently disarming Max Lord. In a shocking move, she does the unthinkable and snaps his neck, an event that is broadcast via satellite across the globe. Her actions create a profound rift between her and the rest of the patriarch's world as they question the sincerity of her mission as ambassador of peace. Shunned and rejected, she returns to Themyscira to defend her island home against an aggressive retaliation by the OMAC troops. After much bloodshed, the Amazons and their gods retreat to another realm, leaving Wonder Woman alone to face the consequences of her crime. Solid artwork complements Rucka's engrossing, action-filled story about heroism, ethics, and responsibility. This book is a must-read for all DC fans. However, episodes tie in directly with larger events taking place simultaneously in the DC Universe. Many convoluted, ancillary plot developments are fully expounded in two related collections, Superman: Sacrifice (2006) and The OMAC Project (2005, both DC Comics). While Wonder Woman can be read independently, it is recommended that libraries purchase the related books to avoid any confusion.—Philip Charles Crawford, Essex High School, Essex Junction, VT
