Weekly Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman #33, Batman and Robin #29-33

Wonder Woman #33

I’m going to be off on holiday for the next three weeks or so, so before I go, I thought I’d sneek in a 'Weekly Woman Wonder' on the most important title of the month - apart from Superman/Wonder Woman that is - namely Wonder Woman. Strange that that should be the order, hey?

I’ll also be playing a little bit of time travel to cast my eye back over the past few issues of Batman and Robin which have featured a reasonably well written but spectacularly poorly drawn Diana, simply because it’s an interesting look at how she’s now viewed in the DC Universe. And because it’s quite interesting.

Diana was taking a well-deserved holiday last week in most of the DC universes. However, in the “let’s get everyone hitting each other in time for the video game” universe of Injustice Gods Among Us, she did at least get a mention.

When last we left her in issue #4, she was in a coma in Man’s World, with her mother Hippolyta promising to take her back to Paradise Island to seek the help of the gods.

Superman/Wonder Woman #10

Normally, around this time of the month, we can rely on Charles Soule and Tony Daniel to cheer us with their usual top notch, high-quality Superman/Wonder Woman. However, this month, not only was Tony Daniel away, leaving the art to the not-quite-as-good Paulo Siqueira – possibly a permanent situation since Daniel is off to write and draw Deathstroke – we’re still stuck in the seemingly interminable ‘Superman Doomed storyline’. The result is the first issue of Superman/Wonder Woman that… I almost can’t bring myself to say it… isn’t very good.

There, I dared to say it.

Also after the jump, we’ll take a look at Justice League Beyond #24, which finally wraps up both the 'Justice Lords' storyline and the ‘Return of Wonder Woman’ storyline. Man these things go on for a long time.
