Weekly Wonder Woman: Sensation Comics #7, Superman Doomed #2

Posted on September 30, 2014 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Superman Doomsday

Last round up for a fortnight, since I’m going to be away next week, but I’m going to leave you with a couple of interesting titles. Superman Doomed #2 doesn’t quite end the almost interminable ‘Superman Doomed’ crossover storyline but gets us within striking distance, and with Charles Soule and Greg Pak co-writing, it’s both a good read and one that does the Amazon princess credit - indeed, she’s very much a core plot point.

Meanwhile, Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman #7 fulfils its remit to give us out-of-continuity Wonder Woman stories with a quirky little tale so far out of continuity, the question of whether it’s even Wonder Woman or not is intriguingly debatable. I even get to go all Greek and mention the Theseus paradox.

So philosophy, romance, smashing and Wonder Woman’s rock band (yes, really) after the jump.

Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman

Sometimes I think I might be better off just waiting for the trade paperbacks of all the Wonder Woman strips. No more having to ferret around trying to find out what issues she’s in. No more wondering when the next issue in a story is going to turn up.

Case in point: last week’s releases. After weeks of none of Diana’s regular titles appearing on the (digital) shelves, DC has finally decided to give us not only the weekly Sensation Comics (Featuring Wonder Woman), but also the latest issues of both Wonder Woman and Superman/Wonder Woman. Nice, hey?

Except rather than carry on the regular story and conclude Brian Azzarello’s run on Wonder Woman, we’ve got a one-off Wonder Woman: Futures End that ties into the somewhat tedious ongoing multi-comic, alternative future, ‘Futures End’ crossover that’s been running for who knows how long (well, I do, actually. Since May, to be precise).

Sigh.

And guess what. Rather than resume the normal action on Charles Soule’s rather marvellous and fun Superman/Wonder Woman title or even resume and conclude the somewhat tedious ongoing multi-comic ‘Superman: Doomed’ crossover that’s been running for who knows how long (well, I do, actually. Since May, to be precise) and has invaded Superman/Wonder Woman for the past few months, Wonder Woman: Futures End #1 crosses over into Superman/Wonder Woman, too, to give us Superman/Wonder Woman: Futures End #1.

Sigh. Again.

Anyway, after the jump, a review of one comic that features the unexpected return of an old Wonder Woman villain and reviews of two comics that feature the unexpected return of another old Wonder Woman villain. None of these comics will, however, have any effect whatsoever on anything. I wonder when normal service will resume?

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.

Keep an eye on Lex Luthor

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.
