Cover And Solicits For Wonder Woman #27 And Superman/Wonder Woman #4

DC Comics’ January 2014 solicits came out yesterday, so let’s take a look at what Wonder Woman will be up to in the New Year:

Diana returns to Paradise Island for the first time since the Amazons were wiped out…but do those ancient stones hold the answers she’s looking for?

More than two years after the Amazons were turned into snakes and her mother was turned into a statue, we’re finally getting some follow up on Paradise Island.  I thought this might have come up sooner, but I suppose that Wonder Woman’s been busy with Hades, Orion, the First Born, and now her role as god of war.  Perhaps this will lead to the return of the Amazons?

Speaking of returns, Cliff Chiang is back on interior art!  Goran Sudzuka is drawing the three fall issues, but Chiang will be back inside the book in January, and hopefully he’ll be around for a while.  No one draws Wonder Woman, and her New 52 universe, as well as Chiang.

Onto Wonder Woman’s other title:

The secret of Superman and Wonder Woman’s relationship is out and the world’s reaction is mixed, but that’s the least of the power couple’s worries as Zod seeks to release Faora from the Phantom Zone!

Faora!  When they mentioned Zod in the December solicit, I had my fingers crossed that Faora would show up, and lo and behold she has.  That’s super exciting; Faora could be a great character, for this book and the DC universe generally.

Also, the relationship secrecy that Clark and Diana talked so dully about in the first issue hasn’t lasted, and it looks like they’ll be outed as a couple in Superman/Wonder Woman #3, with the fallout in this issue.  I hope this issue is one page of handling that and nineteen pages of Wonder Woman fighting Faora.

Finally, I’m betting this isn’t the final cover.  This is the preview image DC released when they announced the book last summer, and it might just be a placeholder because the actual cover wasn’t ready for the solicits and/or there’s something cool on the actual cover they don’t want to show yet.  It could be the actual cover, but I doubt it.  Know who should be on the cover?  Faora.

Look for Wonder Woman #27 and Superman/Wonder Woman #4 this January.  Chiang is back!  And so is Faora!  Wait, now I want Chiang to draw Faora.  How fun would that be?
