Wonder Woman #11 comes out on Wednesday, and DC’s posted a preview on their own blog, rather than another hilariously random or inappropriate site. Hey, remember when there was a Wonder Woman preview on Maxim’s site? Oh DC, you’re so crazy. But anyway, new preview time!! Cliff Chiang is back, so even if you don’t care for the story you should buy it just to see the pretty pictures:
First off, how classy does Diana look in her white jacket and tiara headband? I love Chiang’s fashion sense. They should have gotten him to do all the DCnU costume redesigns. But yeah, it’s a really great take on Diana.
Also, Diana, Hermes, and Zola out doing normal stuff is my very favourite part of the series. We only get a page of it here, but whether they’re hitting the clubs or hanging around in fancy apartments or going to the rustic doctor’s office, those three just hanging out is such a good time.
Then Apollo and Artemis show up!! Artemis is pretty cool looking, and they seem to be playing up the goddess of the moon angle a lot more than the goddess of the hunt angle, which is an interesting change from the usual depictions. Their trash talk is kind of terrible though, albeit amusingly so.
Speaking of which, this exchange between Wonder Woman and Apollo feels like it’s ripped right out of a Scott Pilgrim book:
Apollo: It’s time for you to step down.
Wonder Woman: Really? I’ve never felt more like stepping up.
If Wonder Woman punches Apollo so hard that he explodes into a shower of Canadian coins, this will be the greatest single issue of all time.
So yeah, Wonder Woman #11 is on sale this Wednesday, July 16. After all that Hell stuff, this issue looks pretty fun!!
