Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman #12 Review: “Generations, Part One” by Michael Jelenic, Drew Johnson, and Ray Snyder

October 30, 2014

sensation12

Still no Gilbert Hernandez! His story is in the print version of Sensation Comics that came out this Wednesday, but I haven’t gotten to my comic shop yet. What’s a guy got to do to get this story in a digital form? This week’s digital first issue is part one of a two parter, so I’m betting we don’t get Hernandez next week either. The ways of digital distribution are mysterious.

Luckily, we’ve got another good story this week so I can’t be too sad about the lack of Hernandez. I’m a sucker for a Hippolyta story, and doubly so when Phillipus is involved, so “Generations” by Michael Jelenic, Drew Johnson, and Ray Snyder is right up my alley. The issue has a dual narrative. In the first, Wonder Woman has tracked down the elusive phoenix just as it burns out before being reborn from its ashes. She’s there to recover the phoenix egg, which grants eternal life, but the Cheetah shows up to contest her for her prize. In the second, the Amazons are having a party and Phillipus is orchestrating the celebrations.

Jelenic does a good job of weaving the two separate stories together. Hippolyta is clearly missing her daughter’s at the party, while Diana is remembering her mother’s lessons about how Amazons engage in combat as she battles with the Cheetah. Both halves of the stories have very different tones. The party is light and fun, with some solid comedic moments. Phillipus’ play about the creation of the Amazons is particularly funny, with it quickly turning its focus to the Phillipus character. Some writers make the Amazons very serious and almost dour, but Jelenic has made them fun.

In the Wonder Woman half, it’s all action and excitement and blood. Wonder Woman yanks a spear out of her shoulder and throws it at the Cheetah; it’s hardcore stuff. But at the same time, the violence is tempered with Diana remembering to first seek peace before engaging in violence, which she does. Then when she’s rebuffed, it’s time to show her foe why peace was the better option. I really enjoyed how Jelenic framed the fight in this manner, using violence as a way to convince someone to try the peaceful route next time.

The art is great, though the layouts seemed a bit odd for a digital book. So I did some digging and apparently this story is an old one from the pre-New 52 era, created as a fill-in just in case the team on Wonder Woman was running late and DC had to publish something. It dates back to 2010 or so, and is set in the pre-New 52 continuity, but DC never had to use it so now it’s been repurposed for Sensation Comics. And I’m glad it has, because this is some of the best work I’ve seen from Drew Johnson.

Johnson was a regular on Wonder Woman in the mid-2000s, working with Greg Rucka during his run and popping up sporadically afterward. His work was always solid, but this issue is especially strong. His Amazons look fantastic, his Wonder Woman is regal, strong, and beautiful, and his Cheetah is fiendish and lithe. I’m excited to see the pages laid out as they were meant to be, in full page form, because I think they’ll be stunning. You can see a few of them as they were originally sized at Johnson’s DeviantArt page, if you are so inclined.

Ray Snyder’s inks are strong as well, and Lizzy John’s colouring is especially striking. Her use of warm reds and yellows in the Wonder Woman section and cooler blues and greens back with the Amazons create a nice contrast, and she’s achieved some lovely effects with her textures in a variety of areas, ranging from stones to skin tones. It’s a very pretty story all around.

And also, only part one! It was likely a 22 page story to begin with, so that’s more than 40 digital pages, and this week’s Sensation Comics comprises only half of it. It wasn’t created to be split up, but the artificial cliffhanger works well enough and the solid work throughout has me excited for the second half. The story is enjoyable and the art is wonderful.

If you’re waiting for the print version, it’s going to be a little while. This story, along with its second half, I assume, is scheduled for January’s print issue of Sensation Comics. It should be worth the wait, though. This is going to look great full sized.

Wonder Woman #35 Review OR The End Of An Era

October 29, 2014

ww35a

I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited for a comic than when DC announced that Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang would be relaunching Wonder Woman. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I heard the news, how I flipped out in a public place and drew a lot of odd looks, and how I called my best friend to celebrate with someone comicly inclined who would understand the awesomeness of the day. I was a huge fan of Azzarello’s work on books like 100 Bullets and Loveless, as well the only guy I know who loved Superman: For Tomorrow, and I’d been following Cliff Chiang’s work for years; he was one of the few artists whose work I always bought no matter my interest in the book as a whole. I have a stack of Cliff Chiang comics starring characters I don’t give a hoot about, but I love the comics because they are GORGEOUS.

Now, more than three years later, their run on Wonder Woman is drawing to a close. It’s had its ups and downs, to be sure. I’m still not over the changes to the Amazons, and their portrayal of Diana was a bit all over the map. But when their Wonder Woman was good, which it was quite often, it was one of the best comics on the stands and portrayed a powerful and compassionate version of the character. Today, with their final issue, Azzarello and Chiang have finished strong, presenting a fantastic showcase for Wonder Woman and the wider cast they’ve built around her. But before we talk about that, first this:

SPOILER ALERT!!!

I am going to spoil not just this issue, but the ENTIRE run!

Go read it all first!

Don’t rob yourself of a good story and spectacular art!

Carrying on, let me start with a bit of self-congratulating. I called the Zola is Athena thing when I reviewed the last issue, as well as the Zeke/Zeus connection. So high fives all around for that!

Onto the book itself. This issue picks up where the last one left off, with Wonder Woman and her pals facing Poseidon on Olympus. Then things went sideways when the First Born showed up, and it looked like some of the team were going to meet a bad end. But, of course, the good guys won. It’s superhero comic; that was sort of a given. How they won, however, speaks to the strength of Azzarello and Chiang’s run.

Over the last few years, I’ve often commented on the lack of Wonder Woman in Wonder Woman. On average, she was lucky to be on half of the pages of her own book. But for this finale, Azzarello and Chiang had Wonder Woman take center stage and show her true heroism. She was on every single page of this final issue, driving the action and bringing the First Born’s reign to an end.

When all was lost and it looked like the heroes would be defeated, Wonder Woman was spared because the minotaur couldn’t kill her. He remembered what she did when he was in the same circumstances in Wonder Woman #0, subdued and about to be killed. The young Diana couldn’t kill the minotaur and now, years later, because of that act of compassion, the minotaur refused to kill her. After three years of Wonder Woman’s compassion routinely biting her square in the ass, that it finally paid off for her when it mattered most was a nice, triumphant moment.

It also allowed Wonder Woman to regroup, and defeat the First Born. She took off her bracelets and went full on god mode, and could have killed him. Hermes was certainly cheering for that when he told her to show no mercy. But mercy and compassion are her core. She tricked the First Born; Wonder Woman is clever as well. But instead of killing him, she sent him back down into the pit from whence he came to stay for another few thousand years. The act appeared to not be about malice or punishment, but rather about her belief that the First Born could, with time, learn to love and trust others. Despite all of his evil actions, she refused to see him as a lost cause.

Finally, Wonder Woman convinced Athena to save Zola, who she was set to discard as she returned to her divine form. Athena had been living as Zola, unknowingly, for twenty years, a pittance compared to the lifespan of a god, but Diana convinced her that her time as Zola was valuable and that Zola should live on, to help Zeke/Zeus and also to help others. I’m particularly glad for this turn of events, because Zola is one of the best new characters to come out of this run.

As a comic book, this final issue was well balance and paced. The action was a lot of fun, and the fights were great, but there was a lot more going on than a typical superhero beat ‘em up as Wonder Woman’s compassion ultimately saved the day. Azzarello wrote great moments for all of his now fan favourite characters, and finished with a surprisingly happy yet fitting ending for his darker take on Wonder Woman’s universe.

The issue was beautifully drawn as always by Cliff Chiang, who captured the emotion of each beat perfectly. I don’t think that any other comic book artist communicates feeling and mood as well as Cliff Chiang, and definitely not as deftly and subtly. Plus, he can draw the hell out of a fight scene too. The man is incomparable, and I’m so sad to see him leave the title.

Matthew Wilson’s colours were gorgeous, which is not a surprise given the stellar work he’s done on this series. He always knows how to find the exact right palette for an issue, and then punctuate it fun ways to really drive home the key moments. This issue, I was particularly taken with how he coloured Wonder Woman, Zola, and Zeke as the dawn hit them on the second last page. Such lovely work.

Jared K. Fletcher’s lettering continued to achieve the key goal of lettering: To blend in so well with the art that you don’t even really notice it’s there. His work has been seamless from the first issue on, telling the story effectively while showcasing the artwork as well. Being a letterer isn’t the flashiest of jobs, but good lettering goes a long way and Fletcher has done some fantastic work on Wonder Woman over the past few years.

So the First Born is vanquished, the Amazons are back, and Wonder Woman and all her pals made it out alive. This issue is not only the end of this epic storyline, but also the end of an era. Largely due to Azzarello and Chiang’s star power, the series has been incredibly self-contained and avoided the wider world of the DC universe, specifically Wonder Woman’s foolish romance with Superman. From what we’ve seen of the Finches’ first issue set to debut next month, this separation is over and Wonder Woman will now be much more integrated with the rest of DC’s titles. Wonder Woman hasn’t received the best treatment in the New 52, so her autonomy in her own series was a nice respite. I suppose we’ll still have Sensation Comics, at least.

My congratulations to Azzarello, Chiang, and the whole Wonder Woman team for this great finale! While the run has had rough moments, I think that in the end there was a lot more good than bad and, as a whole, it will go down as one of the better runs in the history of the character.

Wonder Woman #35 Preview OR A Peek At Brian Azzarello And Cliff Chiang’s Epic Finale

October 28, 2014

After more than three years, Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang’s time on Wonder Woman is coming to a close tomorrow with Wonder Woman #35. It’s been quite a run, and despite my qualms with some aspects of the story, their tenure’s high points have been remarkable and certain issues will go down as some of the best in the history of Wonder Woman, I’m sure. I’ll talk more about their legacy in my review tomorrow, but first let’s take a look at what’s coming.

When we last left our intrepid heroine, she’d gone to Olympus with Hermes, Zola, and Zeke, and Poseidon had arrived to stop their plans. The preview picks up right where Wonder Woman #34 left off:

ww35a

ww35b

ww35c

ww35d

ww35e

ww35f

Well, now I’m very worried about Hermes. He’s been one of my favourites characters from the very first issue; if you’ve kept up with my reviews, you’ll remember how I sad I was when he was on the outs with Wonder Woman during the second year and was barely in the book. Hopefully Olympus is a place of immortality, as he says, because I don’t want to lose such a great character.

Zola is looking ever more owly, which I think is significant given the owl/Athena connection. We’ll find out tomorrow if my theory is correct. If it is, we’ll see Zola revealed as a disguised Athena, and possible Zeke revealed as a disguised Zeus. I think I might be onto something here.

Finally, Wonder Woman’s “Um… no?” in reply to Poseidon’s demands is perfect and hilarious. I’m expecting a spectacular showcase for Wonder Woman in this final issue, with the vanquishing of foes and the triumph of good over evil and all of those things. This preview looks to be a good start on that road. I’m going to miss Cliff Chiang drawing Diana so much. For me, he draws the definitive Wonder Woman. He captures her exactly.

Wonder Woman #35 will be available in stores and online tomorrow. It should be pretty epic, so go check it out! I’ll be back with a full review sometime on Wednesday afternoon. I’m anticipating having a lot of feelings about the end of this run, and am looking forward to hearing all of your thoughts on the finale as well.

January’s Flash Variant Covers For Wonder Woman #38 And Superman/Wonder Woman #15

October 24, 2014

Every month, DC Comics has a variant cover theme for twenty or so of their titles. We’ve had selfie variants, Batman variants, Halloween variants, and now in January we’re going to get Flash variants. I assume this has something to do with the wildly successful Flash television show, which premiered to great ratings a couple weeks back and which I have been enjoying thoroughly thus far. The concept for the Flash variants is fun: Artists recreate classic DC covers, with the Flash running through them.

The Flash variant cover for Wonder Woman #38, drawn by the always excellent Terry and Rachel Dodson, is a recreation of Ross Andru and Mike Esposito’s cover to Wonder Woman #155 from July 1965:

flashww38

It’s a lovely cover, and a lot of fun. Wonder Woman marrying a monster is classic Silver Age ridiculousness, and the Dodsons always draw an amazing Wonder Woman. I’m going to try to pick up this one for sure.

As a sidenote, the yellow lines all over the New 52 Flash costume irk me. They always look slapped on, like the artists didn’t want to draw them so the colorist has to figure out where to put them. The Flash costume is so iconic and great, and doesn’t need all of those superfluous lines. Especially when he’s running fast and lightning is crackling around him anyway.

The Flash variant cover for Superman/Wonder Woman #15, drawn by DC’s superstar artist Ivan Reis, is a recreation of Jim Lee’s cover to Justice League #12, the kiss heard round the world:

flashsww

It’s an amusing take on a cover I’ve never been fond of, more for its implications than it’s art. I like that the Flash has tied up Wonder Woman and Superman with the lasso, and generally stunned them out of their romantic revels. It lacks the classic fun of the Wonder Woman cover, but Superman and Wonder Woman’s pairing only goes back so far. It’s not like there’s some great Silver Age cover with the two of them.

Both covers will be available this January, along with many more across a variety of other DC comic books. I’d suggest talking to your local retailer ahead of time and get them to set aside one for you if you’re interested in picking one up. The variants go fast sometimes, and perhaps even faster in January seeing as the Flash is on them!

Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman #11 Review: “Not Included” by Adam P. Knave and Matthew Dow Smith

October 23, 2014

sensation11

First off, how was this not the Gilbert Hernandez story? I’ve been looking forward to the Hernandez story since it was announced months ago, and it’s scheduled for the print edition next week. Maybe that’s when we’ll finally get it, in print first. Who knows? This week’s digital first story isn’t scheduled to be published in print until January, which just seems bizarre. I’ve never followed a digital series before, so this scheduling strikes me as rather odd, but oh well. We’re getting a new Wonder Woman story every week, and that’s the important thing.

While I may have been disappointed with the lack of Gilbert Hernandez this week, my spirits were quickly buoyed by finding a Wonder Woman/Big Barda team up instead. Big Barda is one of my favourite characters of all time, and I think that she pairs perfectly with Wonder Woman. They’re both bad ass warriors, but Wonder Woman leans towards the brain a bit more while Barda leans toward the brawn. Of all the awesome ladies in the DC Comics universe, these two are the last ones you’d ever want to cross.

Adam P. Knave has written a very fun story and jam packed it with action, as one should do with a Wonder Woman/Barda team up. I’ve mentioned before that the constant team ups in Sensation Comics are wearing on me a bit because I’d like the book to be more of a showcase for Wonder Woman, but Knave does it right. He doesn’t waste any time explaining who Barda or flashbacking to her origin for a page or two. She’s just there, she’s tall, and she likes busting things up, and that’s all we need to know. Her inclusion in the story doesn’t take away from Wonder Woman; instead, the contrast between them highlights what is great about both characters, and the story is ultimately a fantastic showcase for Wonder Woman.

While on their way to an interview with Lois Lane, Wonder Woman and Barda get sidetracked by an explosion at the Museum of Alternate energy. Barda throws herself wholly into taking down the robot gorillas they find inside, and while Wonder Woman does her fair share of robot wrecking, she also tries to piece together who is behind the attack. When she finds the villain Brain and his gorilla pal, Mallah, Wonder Woman shows why she’s such a fantastic hero. While Barda and Mallah fight in the background, Wonder Woman talks to the Brain and gets to the heart of why he’s there. Rather than taking him out, she offers him assistance for his problem if he surrenders, and he accepts. I’m always on board for a story where Wonder Woman, one of the best fighters in superhero history, tries to find a peaceful solution before she throws a punch.

The story is amusing and well paced, packing the short length with action and fun. Knave’s strong writing is complimented by Matthew Dow Smith’s art, which reminded me of a mix of Michael Lark and Tommy Lee Edwards, two of my favourite artists. At first glance, the art seems to have a rough quality, but it tells the story well. It’s unconventional art for a superhero book, but it’s a style that really works for me.

I also enjoyed colorist Rex Lokus’ choice to colour Wonder Woman’s New 52 costume with more traditional Wonder Woman colours. The gold metal adds warmth to the outfit that I find is often missing with the New 52’s silver, and the new costume still looks good with the colours changed. Lokus’ colours throughout the issue are excellent, melding well with the art to make a very good looking comic book.

“Not Included” was a fun read, and a great team up of two of the best female characters of all time. If you’re only getting the paper versions of Sensation Comics, this story won’t be out until January, so you’ve got a bit of a wait ahead of you. But mark it on your calendar! It’s a team up with Wonder Woman and Big Barda. You’re gonna want to pick that up.

Secret Origins #6 Review OR Wonder Woman’s New 52 Origin Finally Revealed

October 22, 2014

secretorigins6

This week’s issue of Secret Origins tells the tale of how Diana, Princess of Paradise Island, became Wonder Woman. Sort of. It’s a truncated story that leaves out a lot of the parts traditionally associated with Wonder Woman’s origin story. Nonetheless, it provides some fascinating backstory for a character who hasn’t had a lot of it thus far. We’ll dig into it all, but first:

SPOILER ALERT!!

I am about to reveal Wonder Woman’s secret origin!

You should read it yourself first!

The book is worth buying for that amazing Lee Bermejo cover alone!

Okay, so back to the origin. The story is written by Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang, and a lot of it is stuff we know already from their run on Wonder Woman. Diana is actually the daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta, but she and the rest of the Amazons think that she was made of clay. The story is a snippet from the life of Diana, starting with her desire to someday leave Paradise Island and ending with Steve Trevor crash landing there being her ticket out. It doesn’t go back in time to tell us about the history of the Amazons, nor does it show us how Wonder Woman left Paradise Island. It’s sort of a mini-origin, which is somewhat unsatisfying.

However, what we did get was both enjoyable and illuminating. The biggest reveal was Diana and Aleka’s relationship. They’ve been antagonistic for most of the current Wonder Woman run, but here in the past they were good friends, and perhaps more. There was a definite flirtation between them, and the way the fight scenes were constructed seemed to regularly place them in somewhat sexual poses. Whether or not they were more than friends isn’t clearly stated, but I got the feeling that there was an attraction between them, perhaps that had yet to be explored.

Whatever the nature of their relationship, their closeness in the past explains their distance in the present. Diana wanted to leave and Aleka wanted her to stay, and after Diana left to become Wonder Woman it’s obvious that Aleka didn’t take it well and turned against her. Her deep anger in the present again hints at a spurned lover or an unrequited love situation more than a broken friendship to me, but that’s again not explicitly stated.

This backstory adds a lot to both characters. Aleka’s been rather one note, but now we can understand her better. As for Diana, seeing her curiosity and desire to explore the wider world explains a lot of who she is today.

The story’s style is very similar to Wonder Woman #0, the flashback issue where a young Diana is mentored by Ares. It’s got a Silver Age vibe, both in terms of the writing and the gorgeous art by Goran Sudzuka, which is some of the best work I’ve ever seen from him. The tone is very upbeat and light, almost in an artificial way, which suggests that the story might not be a perfect recreation of what “actually happened,” and that there was more darkness and emotional depth beneath the cheerful surface.

Another surprising reveal was the first official appearance of Athena, in the form of an owl-like creature. I’ve been harping on the lack of Athena in Wonder Woman for years now, and in my review of the latest issue of Wonder Woman I revealed my theory that Zola is actually Athena in disguise. Part of my theory hinged on what happened to Zola’s eyes, how they took on an owly appearance when she visited Olympus. Owls are traditionally associated with Athena, and now we see Athena as a full on owl-like person, so I think my theory has definitely increased in likelihood.

While the story was limited in scope, that may well be a good thing. I was hoping for but also dreading reading more history of the Amazons; Azzarello’s done some bad stuff to the Amazons, turning them into rapists and murderers. While something that addressed and fixed these changes would have been nice, not having anything worse added to their altered history can only be considered a positive. It also leaves parts of their story, particularly the Amazon’s very beginnings, unexplored, which will allow other writers to fill that in and hopefully present a better take on the Amazons in the future.

Similarly, we don’t know if there was any sort of competition for who returned Steve Trevor or anything like that, which is usually a big part of Wonder Woman’s origin stories. Again, someone else can pick up on that in the future, which is cool.

All told, the Wonder Woman story in Secret Origins #6 is both enjoyable and adds a lot of interesting, albeit limited, elements to her backstory, and to Aleka as well. It should also have ramifications for Azzarello and Chiang’s upcoming Wonder Woman finale, if my Zola/Athena theory proves to be true. Plus it was all pretty gay, really, however unspecifically, and that’s fun to see. There is obviously a massive lesbian component to the Amazons, and I’m glad to see them start to be explored.

Secret Origins #6 is available online and in stores today, and also features the origins of Deadman and Sinestro. I didn’t read the latter two, but hey, more stories! The issue is worth buying for the Wonder Woman story alone, and the fantastic cover.

Wonder Woman’s January 2014 Comic Covers And Solicits

October 21, 2014

DC Comics’ full January solicits went up yesterday, and Wonder Woman’s got a lot on the go with her three regular series. I thought that we might see the print version of the new Wonder Woman ’77 set for January as well, but it’s not on the list. Perhaps in February.

But we’ve got three other books I am looking forward to on a scale that ranges from “Not At All” to “Quite A Lot.” Let’s start with the book I’m least looking forward to, Wonder Woman #38:

janww38

WONDER WOMAN #38
Written by MEREDITH FINCH
Art and cover by DAVID FINCH and RICHARD FRIEND
THE FLASH 75 Variant cover by TERRY DODSON and RACHEL DODSON
1:50 B&W Variant cover by DAVID FINCH and RICHARD FRIEND
1:100 Variant cover by DAVID FINCH and RICHARD FRIEND
On sale JANUARY 21 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
With her people against her, Wonder Woman has left Paradise Island more uncertain of her intentions than ever before! And with only the mantle of God of War to turn to, she’s challenged to give that up!

Well, that’s certainly an interesting cover. A berserker, blood spattered god of war Wonder Woman. Yeesh. That is not an appealing image.

As for the story, it sounds like Wonder Woman and the Amazons are having a bit of a spat. We’ve seen that sort of story done about 78 times before, including in the run that immediately preceded the Finches taking over, so that seems like an odd choice. It’s hard to have a fresh take on something that’s been done to death. Some month, I’d like Wonder Woman to have a really nice time in her own book for a change. Things go well, her family and friends are kind and helpful, and she takes out a bad guy and saves the day. No rage, no blood, no betrayal, just a pleasant day of superheroing. I know, it’ll never happen.

Onto Superman/Wonder Woman #15, which I remain very curious about:

jansww15

SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #15
Written by PETER J. TOMASI
Art and cover by DOUG MAHNKE
THE FLASH 75 Variant cover by IVAN REIS
On sale JANUARY 14 • 32 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T
Combo pack edition: $4.99 US
Wonderstar’s destiny is starting to become clear – and his path may lead to the end of humanity! Will Superman and Wonder Woman be able to prevent him from becoming what – or who – he’s meant to be?

I love that Superman is getting blasted on the cover while Wonder Woman remains unharmed. That’s a fun change from what we’ve seen in past Superman/Wonder Woman covers.

Also, random sidenote, is it just me or does Wonder Woman look like the gal from The Blacklist on that cover?

I know absolutely nothing about this run or the new Wonderstar character on account of Tomasi and Mahnke don’t even start on the book until next month, but here’s my theory on what’s going down: Wonderstar is either Superman and Wonder Woman’s kid from the future and/or an alternate universe, or it’s some kind of mixed clone thing that’s half Wonder Woman and half Superman. Either way, I think they’ll have some parental connection to this new character, and that’s why they’re so involved with him. We’ll see how it plays out over the next few months. I’m probably absolutely wrong, but you never know.

Finally, the book I am most excited for, Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #6:

jansens5

SENSATION COMICS FEATURING WONDER WOMAN #6
Written by MICHAEL JELENIC and ADAM P. KNAVE
Art by DREW JOHNSON, RAY SNYDER and MATTHEW DOW SMITH
Cover by PAUL DAVEY
On sale JANUARY 21 • 40 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T • DIGITAL FIRST
Hippolyta’s first rule of war is demonstrated in “Generations,” as Diana and Cheetah battle over a phoenix egg – and its promise of immortality! Then Diana and Big Barda fight the awesome menace of robot gorillas in “Not Included.”

This cover isn’t doing much for me, but here’s what I’m excited about: BIG BARDA. I LOVE Big Barda, and a Big Barda/Wonder Woman team up is everything I could possibly want in a comic book. Plus they’re fighting ROBOT GORILLAS. Sign me up. This is already THE comic book of 2015 for me.

And there’s a Cheetah story too! Talk about bang for your buck. In a world of New 52 darkness, Sensation Comics is the gift that keeps on giving.

I will say that I’m a little bit disappointed at the lack of female creators, though. Usually Sensation Comics is good for at least one somewhere in the mix. Hopefully there’ll be some in February.

Look for all of these Wonder Woman comics in January online or at fine comic book shops everywhere!
