Sometimes I think I might be better off just waiting for the trade paperbacks of all the Wonder Woman strips. No more having to ferret around trying to find out what issues she’s in. No more wondering when the next issue in a story is going to turn up.
Case in point: last week’s releases. After weeks of none of Diana’s regular titles appearing on the (digital) shelves, DC has finally decided to give us not only the weekly Sensation Comics (Featuring Wonder Woman), but also the latest issues of both Wonder Woman and Superman/Wonder Woman. Nice, hey?
Except rather than carry on the regular story and conclude Brian Azzarello’s run on Wonder Woman, we’ve got a one-off Wonder Woman: Futures End that ties into the somewhat tedious ongoing multi-comic, alternative future, ‘Futures End’ crossover that’s been running for who knows how long (well, I do, actually. Since May, to be precise).
And guess what. Rather than resume the normal action on Charles Soule’s rather marvellous and fun Superman/Wonder Woman title or even resume and conclude the somewhat tedious ongoing multi-comic ‘Superman: Doomed’ crossover that’s been running for who knows how long (well, I do, actually. Since May, to be precise) and has invaded Superman/Wonder Woman for the past few months, Wonder Woman: Futures End #1 crosses over into Superman/Wonder Woman, too, to give us Superman/Wonder Woman: Futures End #1.
Anyway, after the jump, a review of one comic that features the unexpected return of an old Wonder Woman villain and reviews of two comics that feature the unexpected return of another old Wonder Woman villain. None of these comics will, however, have any effect whatsoever on anything. I wonder when normal service will resume?
