Justice League #35

It was all about Lex Luthor over at Justice League last week. The newest member of the League, he’s up to something so they’ve decided to keep him close to keep an eye on him. In turn, Lex has been learning what it means to be a goodie for a change – largely thanks to Wonder Woman. But what’s he been up to? Almost all is revealed this issue…

Also last week we had the latest issue of Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman, in which, with a little help from Atom, Wonder Woman goes all Giganta to deal with a Thanagarian villain in the entertainingly titled ‘Attack of the 50-foot Wonder Woman’. As you might expect, things don’t turn out quite the way you’d think.

Surprisingly, both are linked by a common theme. What might that be? I’ll tell you after the jump.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Superman/Wonder Woman #12, Sensation Comics #9

Superman/Wonder Woman #12

So it was the best of times and it was the worst of times at Superman/Wonder Woman last week. On the one hand, after months of the interminable ‘Superman Doomed’ storyline, things finally returned to normal, with writer Charles Soule once more being allowed to devote his attention to the Power Couple with a characteristically joyful little piece in issue #12.

On the other, Soule recently signed an exclusivity contract with Marvel, which means that his reign on the title is at an end.

And there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

After the jump, then, we’ll look at Soule’s final issue, we’ll ask just how different from our Earth – particularly London – the DC Earth might be, and we’ll finally find out why Wonder Woman likes ice cream so much.

Also arriving in London last week was Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman #9, together with a noted American master criminal – a certain Ms Selina Kyle aka Catwoman. More on what happens when she meets a very sleepy Wonder Woman after the jump.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Sensation Comics #7, Superman Doomed #2

Superman Doomsday

Last round up for a fortnight, since I’m going to be away next week, but I’m going to leave you with a couple of interesting titles. Superman Doomed #2 doesn’t quite end the almost interminable ‘Superman Doomed’ crossover storyline but gets us within striking distance, and with Charles Soule and Greg Pak co-writing, it’s both a good read and one that does the Amazon princess credit - indeed, she’s very much a core plot point.

Meanwhile, Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman #7 fulfils its remit to give us out-of-continuity Wonder Woman stories with a quirky little tale so far out of continuity, the question of whether it’s even Wonder Woman or not is intriguingly debatable. I even get to go all Greek and mention the Theseus paradox.

So philosophy, romance, smashing and Wonder Woman’s rock band (yes, really) after the jump.
