Sensation Comics #35

It’s a miracle. I got all my work done early and therefore Weekly Wonder Woman avoids a Bank Holiday weekend hiatus. Woot woot!

After the jump then, we’ll see the end of the three-part ‘Vendetta’ in Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman, the conclusion of Convergence: Wonder Woman and the penultimate instalment of Convergence itself. And there will be blood. Mainly because of the punching. But also the vampires.

DC Elseworlds

There were all manner of different Wonder Women in last week comics, almost all of them Elseworlds Wonder Women, largely thanks to the mighty behemoth that is Convergence.

Although Injustice: Gods Among Us’ Wonder Woman got a week off, we had the continuing adventures of Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman’s Wonder Woman as she tries to deal with Ares’ attempts to upset some peace negotiations. We also saw Flashpoint's, Kingdom Come's and AN Other Wonder Woman’s efforts to determine the one true universe through punching in Convergence and Convergence: Justice League International. All of those I’ll chat about after the jump.

But first, as WWW is more than just a set of reviews as it also covers news (versatile, hey?), I’ll just mention that there’ll be yet another Elseworlds Wonder Woman joining the line up this summer. A while back, DC did a range of alternative covers for its comics featuring (mainly) superheroines in the style of World War 2-era propaganda posters and pin-ups. These then became a range of collectible figures and now, we’re going to get DC Bombshells, a World War 2-set Elseworld in which the various slightly scantily dressed superheroines are going to fight on the front line.

Thought you’d like to know.

Injustice: Gods Among Us - Year 4 #1

Last week, I left you with a conundrum:

Year Three of slugfest Injustice: Gods Among Us has just finished and Year Four begins later today. What’s that going to be about, after we’ve escalated from Superman v Batman and regular superheroes in Year One, to Superman v intergalactic superheroes in Year Two to Superman v magical heroes in Year Three?

I also left you with the clue that it was going to be a Wonder Woman-centric Year. So, did you guess correctly, oh wise one, because Year Four of Injustice: Gods Among Us is going to be all about the Greek gods and how they’re taking Superman’s new regime. Let’s see who they bring into the war (there’s a clue there)…

Also out last week was the first of a three-part story in Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman, in which diplomat Wonder Woman tries to broker peace in Africa, something in which at least one god also has an interest.

And as it was Free Comics Book Day last week, we also got a preview of Justice League #41, which shows us hints of what’s to come this month in the Darkseid War. Turns out Wondy might have a very similar new enemy to fight, one with an odd taste in clothes - and that this might turn out to be one of the most important issues for Wonder Woman continuity since the nu52 began…
