After rescuing the Cheetah from the clutches of the evil International Milk Company, Wonder Woman must set her sights on the real monsters behind it all… the gods!

Diana is going to need a fellow expert on deities to save the day, but you’ll never guess who!

    You Don't Read Comics

    Cloonan and Conrad offer up a valiantly heroic Wonder Woman who has no fear of facing the gods themselves as she is sworn to protect the earth from everything. Her power contrasts well against theirs. She’s in over her head just enough to make the heroism feel that much more potent. The presence of Cheetah as an ally is a welcome one. The match-up between Wonder Woman and Young Diana in this issue might not feel perfect, but it still manages to make a standard-length comic book feel just a bit more substantial than it would with a single feature.

    Wonder Woman #794 on the surface is a good issue. Some time with it reveals it is full of insight and care. I ask you, reader to not just read it, but think about what is going on. Think about Barbara M. and what she's going through. There's an exciting and fun story of Greek Gods executing a plan of mayhem and subversion on the people of the Earth, but beneath the surface there's something even more substantial and gratifying. Not many comics can do this, and it's not only here, but done incredibly cleverly with all the nods to the Golden Age.

    It’s a solid issue and the new team dynamic is a lot of fun. (...) The best part of the issue may be the latest installment of the Young Diana story, which focuses on Antiope planning to take her leave from Themyscira. (...) It feels like this could have been an ending to the arc, but more is coming and the stunning art and deft writing make me pretty excited to see where it goes.

    Cloonan and Conrad once again knock this issue out of the park. Dine on that godflesh, Cheetah!

    I hate to say it but the only good thing about Wonder Woman #794 is the appearance of Yara Flor. The rest of the issue is crammed with some clunky writing, that messy and weird Milk Xtra plot that should have died several issues ago, and frankly weird action sequences that, while the art is good, really aren't helped by the art at all – there's just something very weird about milk creatures (or, rather, Greek gods emerging from vats of milk.) The whole issue feels lazy and convoluted in the weirdest way and while Wonder Woman stories can, at times, be campy fun, this is just bad.

    Weird Science DC Comics

    Wonder Woman #794 continues the moldering milk misadventures with goofy milk battles and the reveal of a plan by the gods of Mt. Olympus to take over the world. The premise is goofy, and the dialog is terrible, but the art is serviceable.

About the Author: Becky Cloonan

Becky Cloonan (born 23 June) is an American comic book creator, known for work published by Tokyopop and Vertigo. In 2012 she became the first female artist to draw the main Batman title for DC Comics.

Early life

Becky Cloonan was born in Pisa, Italy. She attended New York’s School of Visual Arts.

Career

Cloonan and her friends produced a comics anthology that they called Meathaus.

Cloonan created minicomics as a member of the Meathaus collective before collaborating with Brian Wood on Channel Zero: Jennie One in 2003. Since then, her profile (and workload) has steadily risen; her best-known work to date has been the twelve-issue comics series Demo (2004), also with Wood. Wizard named Demo its 2004 Indie of the Year. The series was also nominated for two Eisner Awards in 2005, for Best Limited Series and Best Single Issue or One-Shot (the latter of which was for Demo #7, “One Shot, Don’t Miss”).

Cloonan’s first solo graphic novel, East Coast Rising Volume 1, was released by Tokyopop in 2006. East Coast Rising: Volume 1 marked Cloonan’s third Eisner Award nomination in 2007, this time for Best New Series. She also collaborated with writer Steven T. Seagle on the Vertigo Comics series American Virgin, which was cancelled with the 23rd issue. In 2012 she became the first woman to draw the main Batman title.

In 2013, she did the art for the series The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, which is written by Gerard Way and Shaun Simon. In 2014/2015, she also co-created and did cover art and stories for Gotham Academy from DC Comics.

In 2015, she was voted #3 of the top 50 female comics artists of all-time. She was also one of only two creators to make the list as both writer and artist, voted #14 among all-time top writers.

In 2017, Cloonan was one of several artists participating in the Pow! Wow! Worcester festival, the purpose of which was to bring large public murals to buildings throughout Worcester, Massachusetts. Cloonan painted her mural, which she completed on Labor Day, on the building housing the comic shop That’s Entertainment.

In July 2021, DC Comics announced that Cloonan and Michael W. Conrad would co-write Batgirls, a new series which would focus on Barbara Gordon’s mentorship of Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown. The debut issue was released on December 14, 2021, and garnered a positive review from Dustin Holland of CBR.com.
