Wonder Woman #36

As usual, we can rely on DC Comics to time its releases of comics with impeccable precision. So, after weeks of a couple of guest appearances here and there by Diana in various comics, finally, we have all the usual main Wonder Woman titles out in the same week.

When last we left both Wonder Woman and Superman/Wonder Woman, we were waving goodbye to two A-teams: Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang were departing Wonder Woman, having concluded their three-year reboot of the character; meanwhile, Charles Soule and (predominantly) Tony Daniel were bidding both Superman and Wonder Woman adieu over on Superman/Wonder Woman.

Joining the fold last week, we had Meredith Finch and Brian Finch on Wonder Woman #36 and Peter J Tomasi and Doug Mahnke over on Superman/Wonder Woman #13. After the jump, I’ll be looking at both issues and wondering if we’ve got two new A-teams, two new B-teams or some other alphabetical combinations.

But we’re not done. Because on top of those two, we have the conclusion of Gilbert Hernandez’s two-parter in Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman #15 and in Justice League #36, we have the arrival of Wonder Woman’s movie costume in the comic book world.

Black Widow #12

This month's issue of Black Widow is out today. Yes, her off The Avengers:

And the observant will notice from the front cover that CNN’s Anderson Cooper is a guest star in this issue. No, really.

Odd, hey? Still, anything to get people reading it, I say. But you’d have to be very observant to spot the crossover with The Unit in this issue as well:

Spot it?

Blink and you’ll have missed the fact that 'Dirt Diver’ was the call sign of The Unit’s Mack Gerhard.

Gosh, what a TV-filled comic this month.

Weekly Wonder Woman: World's Finest #28, Smallville Continuity #12, Sensation Comics #14

World's Finest #28

It was a relatively quiet week for regular Wonder Woman last week, but in various universes (and times) she had lots to do. Most notably, over on Earth 2 - where she’s dead, of course - we got a flashback to a time when the coming apocalypse was predicted and the immortal Wonder Woman had to venture out into Man’s World to save two children - one Clark Kent and one Bruce Wayne, in fact.

Meanwhile, over in Smallviile: Continuity, there was another child of a different variety for Diana to visit and in Sensation Comics #14, everyone was on acid.

At least it seemed like it, because Gilbert Hernandez of Love and Rockets fame has just started a two-issue story.

More after the jump.
