Yes, I know - why call it Weekly Wonder Woman when the last one was more than a month ago and I'm not going to doing one next week, either, since I'm on holiday? Sigh. All I can do is apologise and confess that since I'm doing volunteer work on Fridays, most of my Friday work ends up on Monday instead, and I therefore usually have to choose on Monday between writing about tele (this 'ere blog's raison d'être) and WWW, which can take a good couple of hours to do (even if it doesn't look like it). Guess which one wins.
However, today, I have the time to do both. Yay! Plus Rebirth is on the way. DC's partial reboot of its universe, it's best summarised as "Hey fanboys? Yes, you guys who all buggered off when the nu52 started and who were the ones who actually bought comics? Want to have storylines exactly like they used to be 10 years ago? Want old Superman and Batman back? Well here you go!”
That means, following issue #52 of a whole range of titles, big changes will be afoot, numbering will return to issue #1, nu52 Superman will disappear/die (although maybe not) to be replaced by the old one who was married to Lois Lane and has a kid, and all manner of other things will happen. So I'd better do something to mark the change, hadn't I?
We've already seen a little of what Rebirth means for our Diana, although here's the full schedule:
Paulo Siqueira is also no longer illustrating Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1.
But after the jump, we'll see how the nu52 has effectively ended for our Diana when we look at Wonder Woman #51-52, as well as for Superman as we take a gander at Superman-Wonder Woman #28-29, Batman-Superman #32 and Action Comics #52. Finishing things up, the Darkseid War is nearly ending over in Justice League #49 (that's got to make up some ground, hasn't it…? Oh, it's going to end on Wednesday with issue #50 instead of #52. Do you reckon they planned it that way?), while Wonder Woman has to deal with her sister, Cassandra, and niece Wonder Girl, over in Teen Titans #19.
Meanwhile, the action hasn't been stopping for various Elseworlds Wonder Women. Wondy has to deal with Superman dying (again) in Dark Knight III #4, continues her WW2 fight in Norway against the Titan in the acclaimed The Legend of Wonder Woman #24-26 (which has recently been granted a second volume), and is having her sexy origin retold yet again in the rather massive Wonder Woman - Earth One.
All that after the jump. But for those of you with an interest in Movie Wonder Woman, here's some video of Movie Themyscira:
Here's a picture of Connie Nielsen as Diana's Movie mum, Hippolyta.
And here's a picture from the final day of filming:
Yes, I've been saving this all up. Soz.
