DC Comics has announced the solicitations for June 2012, and our favourite Amazon is starring in two books, as usual. First up is Wonder Woman #10, with that creepy cover:
WONDER WOMAN #10
Written by BRIAN AZZARELLO
Art by TONY AKINS and DAN GREEN
Cover by CLIFF CHIANG
On sale JUNE 20
• WONDER WOMAN has been shot through the heart! It’s up to LENNOX to pull his half-sister out of HELL!
• One of DIANA’S closest companions is not to be trusted!
No Cliff Chiang on the interior art is a definite bummer. Chiang tweeted today that Akins is going to do the art for Wonder Woman #9 and #10 and that he’d be back for #11-13. All this back and forth isn’t so fun, but that’s pretty great that Cliff Chiang will be on the book into its second year!!
So it looks like Wonder Woman gets shot in the issue before this one… that’s not good. Hades is a dangerous place I suppose. And it’s nice that Lennox is coming to help her out. But what if he’s the companion who’s not to be trusted!! That could end badly.
Who is the companion who’s not to be trusted anyway? It can’t be Zola, and Lennox seems a little obvious… it better not be Hermes!! He’s my favourite!! Maybe Wonder Woman gets a new companion between now and then who’s not terribly trustworthy. I guess we’ll find out in June.
Next up is Justice League #10 with a not yet inked cover:
JUSTICE LEAGUE #10
Written by GEOFF JOHNS
Art and cover by JIM LEE and SCOTT WILLIAMS
Backup story art by GARY FRANK
Variant cover by CULLY HAMNER
On sale JUNE 20
• “THE VILLAIN’S JOURNEY” part two!
• The identity of the Justice League’s newest and deadliest foe is revealed!
• Part four of the debut of SHAZAM!
Wonder Woman looks like she’s in the casket on the left, after Superman. Yet again, this is a damn near useless Justice League solicit. All we know is that the Justice League is fighting some type of foe, which we all could have guessed anyway because that’s what happens is every superhero comic book. Also, more Shazam!! Which is fun and all, but very vague. An uninformative solicit with a pencilled cover isn’t super grabbing, folks at DC.
Wonder Woman #10 and Justice League #10 are both on sale June 20th. Though, of course, Justice League might be a little late. It’s been running a bit behind recently.
