This week sees the last issue of Wonder Woman from Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang, the creative forces behind the character’s revamp for the nu52. However, before they go, they’ve one extra little ‘treat' for Wonder Woman fans as part of the Secret Origins series of comics, revealing – in their own inimitable style – why Wonder Woman left Paradise Island. And as usual with those two, it was both the best of times and the worst of times.
Also out last week was Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman, which gave us a pleasing team-up between Diana and Big Barda against some intelligent gorillas and their robots. Monkey punching! Yay!
It's a whole lot better than it sounds, I promise.
And lastly, Smallville: Continuity has apparently been including its Wonder Woman in the storyline for the past nine issues without telling me. Huh. So a brief recap of that story after the jump, too. See you in a minute!

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.

Jason Momoa’s so hot right now. This is slightly bewildering – after all, he started off pretty inauspiciously in his acting life on Baywatch Hawaii, before working his way over to the least interesting of all the Stargates, Stargate: Atlantis, and no one really came out of Stargate: Atlantis with their careers intact, although at least he escaped with his hair intact.
Since then, though, he's defied the odds and gone on to better things, including starring in Sundance’s Red Road and directing Road to Paloma, and he’s about to star as Aquaman in the forthcoming Aquaman. Nevertheless, he has become known for taking his top off a lot, to the extent that he didn’t really want to play the part of Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy, because it was essentially identical to his Stargate: Atlantis role.
And his role as Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones. Still, you have to admit that he was perfect for the role, as you can see from his audition tape, in which for reasons best known to him, he decided to do a Maori haka.
