Weekly Wonder Woman: Justice League #33, Sensation Comics #1-4

Justice League #33

Sorry, loyal readers, I’ve been away for a month so I’ve missed out all of August’s comics featuring Wonder Woman, and life being too short, etc, I won’t be playing catch up with August's annuals, Superman Wonder Woman #11, Supergirl #34 et al, I’m afraid. Onwards and upwards and all that.

Fortunately, for some reason, DC has delayed releasing most of the usual Wonder Woman titles until tomorrow, though, so last week only gave me a few titles with which to kick off coverage again. The first is Justice League #33, in which Lex Luthor petitions to become part of the Justice League, largely by trying to deal with the alternative universe Green Lantern ring that’s taken hold of one frightened human, who for reasons best known to them is sought after by the Doom Patrol.

Batman sorts out the bad Lantern in a somewhat surprising way, but decides to persuade the rest of the Trinity that maybe having Lex Luthor on board isn’t such a bad idea – since it means that they can keep an eye on him.

There’s not a lot for Diana to do, beyond fight, plan and promise to give Steve Trevor a call (to have a word with him about the Doom Patrol, obviously), and if you’re as tired of ongoing storylines as I am, then the inability of both Forever Evil and, elsewhere, Superman: Doomed, to actually end is more than a bit wearing. But it’s fine for what it is.

However, the big news when I was away was the launch of weekly digital comic, Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman. Named after the comic that launched Wonder Woman in the first place, it exists as a way for authors and artists to create weekly Wonder Woman comics that are ‘out of continuity’ – that is, nothing in them affects existing nu52 continuity and they can in fact be set in any other, non-nu52 continuity, whether it be post-Crisis, Golden Age, Odyssey or even one of their own invention.

So what have authors done with it so far? Let’s have a brief chat about that, as well as the latest issue, after the jump.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman #33, Batman and Robin #29-33

Wonder Woman #33

I’m going to be off on holiday for the next three weeks or so, so before I go, I thought I’d sneek in a 'Weekly Woman Wonder' on the most important title of the month - apart from Superman/Wonder Woman that is - namely Wonder Woman. Strange that that should be the order, hey?

I’ll also be playing a little bit of time travel to cast my eye back over the past few issues of Batman and Robin which have featured a reasonably well written but spectacularly poorly drawn Diana, simply because it’s an interesting look at how she’s now viewed in the DC Universe. And because it’s quite interesting.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Two #15

Posted on July 21, 2014 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Diana was taking a well-deserved holiday last week in most of the DC universes. However, in the “let’s get everyone hitting each other in time for the video game” universe of Injustice Gods Among Us, she did at least get a mention.

When last we left her in issue #4, she was in a coma in Man’s World, with her mother Hippolyta promising to take her back to Paradise Island to seek the help of the gods. When there’s an attack against the Earth – currently being run by an uneasy alliance between Superman and Sinestro – where’s Superman to defend it? Visiting Wonder Woman.

He’s not responding. I wonder what’s stopping him…
