Cover And Solicits For Wonder Woman #28 And Superman/Wonder Woman #5

DC Comics’ February 2014 solicits have been released, and there are some fun books on the schedule.  I’m particularly excited for the Lois Lane special; I’m hoping it does well enough that a Lois Lane series follows.  Wonder Woman’s got her usual two titles as well, so let’s take a look at what’s on the way this February.  First, Wonder Woman #28:

The last time the First Born came for Olympus, it took the death of the God of War to stop him. And if Wonder Woman is now the God of War…and if the First Born is more determined than ever to claim his birthright…then things are about to get VERY violent indeed!

It looks like the inevitable is set to occur, and the First Born will yet again make a play for the throne of Olympus.  Much carnage will ensue, I’m sure, and it will be beautifully drawn by Cliff Chiang.  And Wonder Woman will win in the end.  She’s Wonder Woman after all.  It should be a fun time.

DC also has several steam punk variant covers this month, and Wonder Woman gets one by J.G. Jones.  I’m not sure why DC is so keen on steam punk; my best guess is that it’s a tie-in to their Infinite Crisis online game, which has a steam punk universe as part of their overall multiverse.  Anyway, J.G. Jones is a great artist, and this might be a cool cover.

Now to Superman/Wonder Woman #5:

Faora has joined Zod – and now, Earth must kneel before their combined might! Even Superman and Wonder Woman can’t stop their plan for the Phantom Zone!

So Wonder Woman isn’t even on the cover, which is pretty uncool.  BUT Faora is on the cover, and Faora is super awesome, so that evens things out a bit.  Nonetheless, it shows that this is very much a Superman book and Wonder Woman is a tagalong.  The villains have been Superman villains, Doomsday, Zod, now Faora.  Some of the god are supposed to be in the second issue, out tomorrow, but the book looks to be all in Superman’s world apart from that.  Seeing that the book is under the Superman editorial umbrella, this isn’t a huge surprise, but they could at least keep Wonder Woman on the cover.

Look for both titles this February!

    well in all honesty, what did you expect? Wonder Woman doesn’t HAVE villains anymore. She has Gods. DC has spent decades slowly taking away Wonder Woman’s villains and now, she’s left with her fickle gods, who honestly are fickle. They can change from good to evil at a whim, so no biggie.
    Also, new 52 has made Cheetah a Justice League villain and Doctor Psycho a Superboy villain and.. Giganta wouldn’t be much of a match for the combined forces of Superman and Wonder Woman, so.. we get Superman villains that are more apt to match them physically.
    I still hope though that one day a write will come along on this title (since it will probably be around for a while) to combine Lex Luthor and Baroness Paula von Gunther into a deadly relationship as they use each other and try to destroy Superman and Wonder Woman. That’d be epic.
