Yes, it’s Weekly Wonder Woman – keeping you up to date on pretty much anything involving DC Comics’ premier superheroine, including which barbarians she’s hanging out with this month
With Wonder Woman coming out on Blu-Ray in the US this week, Warner Bros pulled out all the stops to promote it… by having a bunch of drones do some sky-writing over Los Angeles. I’m not quite sure what says ‘Wonder Woman’ about Los Angeles other than ‘Warner Bros has its offices here so we won’t have far to go for this’, but at least Warner put some footage up on the InterWeb for the few hundred million Americans who don’t live there (and the rest of the planet):
Maybe you had to be there.
Fortunately, we also got the final two of Lucy Davis’ marvellous ‘Etta Candy explains…’, the first about Ares, the god of war (extra bonus points to our Lucy for trying to pronounce in a Greek stylee), the second about ‘the Reinforcements’.
We also got another clip from the forthcoming Professor Marston & The Wonder Women:
The only bit of Wondy (ish) comics news of the week was that Justice League is going to get a new writing team as of issue #34. Christopher Priest will be writing, Pete Woods on art, with Priest trying to add a bit more of a real-world aesthetic to the title:
“Is the Justice League still relevant? What are their goals and how do we define them? In the ‘real’ world, how would various societies around the globe view this pantheon of godlike beings?” Priest asked, saying that he intends to treat the series “more like a workplace drama,” and that — although there will be alien invasions and super villains to deal with — “the League’s greater challenge will be to define their place in this new and increasingly cynical age.”
Someone should probably tell him that Wondy isn’t just godlike, she is a goddess. Or a demi-goddess. Whatever DC editorial has agreed on this week anyway.
After the jump, we’ll be looking at this week’s crop of comics featuring Diana. We have exercises in counting up to three in Trinity #13, while over in Justice League #29, Diana administers some super tough love to her future son. Meanwhile, in Elseworlds team-up fun, we have the conclusion of Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman in issue #6 and finally, we have the team up you’ve all been waiting for – it’s Wonder Woman meets Conan the Barbarian in Wonder Woman/Conan #1.
