As I prepare to take a week off next week, I note the happy timing – this is precisely what’s happening at DC for the next month or two. Yes, the publisher of Wonder Woman comics is off taking a break as it moves offices from New York to Los Angeles, so as to be better geared up for movie/money synergies.
While everyone’s filling boxes and the likes, no one’s going to have much time for that editing and printing lark, so in the place of the regularly advertised comics, we’re getting the BIGGEST EVENT EVAH!
It’s not really the biggest event ever, you know. Initially, it was going to just be a sort of Sensation Comics writ large for all the DC titles, with a whole bunch of stories set in previous continuities (Golden Age, Silver Age, Post-Crisis, Kingdom Come, Red Son et al) showing up on the shelves for a month or so, just for fun. Except now it’s all been tied in with something involving Brainiac, with Flashpoint Aquaman fighting pre-Flashpoint Justice League and the like, and it’s all going to be important and mean stuff and probably end up with everyone wearing new costumes or something.
In preparation, Sensation Comics has gone on sabbatical, and is set to return on the 23rd April; in its place, we have the return of Wonder Woman ’77, which aptly enough, also appears to have some parallel universe fun going on.
And while Justice League proper is taking a break, too, this week we’ve been left to enjoy new issues of both Wonder Woman and Superman/Wonder Woman, in which Diana chats a lot and takes up a new hobby. Treasure them – they won’t be back until June, now.
