DC is mixing it up this month and releasing some of their solicits early, catching bloggers who had busy days doing other things (and who thus didn’t bother to check the internet before leaving the house) by surprise. Oh well… no big deal. Let’s take a look at Wonder Woman #18!!

• We’ve seen the history Wonder Woman shares with Ares — but what does the God of War have planned for her future?
The cover is cool, particularly the background of Wonder Woman that looks like mosaic tiling. I thought it was benday dots at first but no, Cliff Chiang is classier and more old school than that. Mosaics were the original benday dots!!
We’ve also got young Diana and less decrepit Ares, so it seems we’ll be dealing with stuff from the #0 issue. The two ended the issue on pretty bad terms, so I’m not sure whether we’ll be flashing back to that period or the cover image is more just a reminder of their history and we’ll be dealing with the present primarily.
The solicit itself doesn’t give us much information at all. Ares apparently has something planned for Wonder Woman’s future. That’s pretty vague. There’s not a lot we can speculate with.
Tony Akins is back on art, which could be fun since he draws a great Ares. He’s an excellent choice for an Ares-centric issue.
Look for Wonder Woman #18 on March 20th!!
