Nerdist has posted a five page preview of Superman/Wonder Woman #4, out this Wednesday in comic shops everywhere and online. The book’s sales aren’t doing so well, and I’ll have more on that later in the week, and while I really don’t care for this series at all, I’m going to try very hard to find something positive to say about this preview:
Okay, here’s something I liked! The bit where Zod can tell that Superman learned Kryptonian from a machine because he doesn’t have an accent was cool. It was a nicely done, little moment that captured Superman’s alienation from his home planet, that as much as Superman tries to learn about Krypton and his heritage there will always be something missing. I like that line a lot.
Other than that, Superman and Wonder Woman talk about their relationship and who they are some more, and Zod obviously has some kind of sinister plan. This book is not my cup of tea, so none of this is doing much for me.
Also, Wonder Woman’s boots zip up now, which is a new development, to the best of my knowledge. I can’t remember Wonder Woman zipping her boots before; I think they’ve always been the pull on kind. Perhaps they’ve got advanced Amazonian zipper technology.
Anyway, Superman/Wonder Woman #4 is out tomorrow. General Zod has a decent, incisive panel, so it’s got that going for it. That, and zip-up boots.
