Cover And Solicits For Wonder Woman #30, Superman/Wonder Woman #7, And Batman and Wonder Woman #30

The DC solicits were late again; I don’t know if this is just when they’re going to release them now, or if they’ve been running behind for two months straight.  Regardless, we now know what’s coming out in April, and Wonder Woman is starring in three different series.

First up is Wonder Woman #30, with some very welcome news:

Wonder Woman, the God of War, takes command of the deadliest army ever! The Amazons are back, and they have some scores to settle…

The Amazons are back!  Their return was inevitable, I suppose, but it’s finally coming.  On the one hand, HOORAY!  I love the Amazons, and I enjoyed what little we saw of them when the New 52 began.  On the other hand, watch out sailors!  Amazons be raping.

Goran Sudzuka is back on art for this issue, and while I’m all about Cliff Chiang, Sudzuka has been my favourite of the fill-in artists so far.  With the Amazons returning, I’m wondering if we’re nearing the endgame of Azzarello’s plan for Wonder Woman.  If he’s starting to tie up loose ends, perhaps his run is coming to a conclusion.

Wonder Woman’s romantic adventures continue in April in Superman/Wonder Woman #7:

Doomsday has awakened and the Earth and heavens tremble! And discover how Superman and Wonder Woman survived a nuclear blast!

First off, I’m betting this isn’t the finished cover.  The art is pretty rough, and it’s either not finished or they’ve zoomed in tight on a smaller part of the cover.  Anyway, at least Wonder Woman’s on this one.  That’s a plus.

Paulo Siqueira is on art duties for this issue.  There have been rumours that Tony S. Daniel is leaving the book, but Daniel has refuted them and is saying that he’s just taking an issue off to get a jump on the next one.  I suppose we’ll know for sure what’s up when the solicits come out next month.

Finally, I think that the answer to “How do Superman and Wonder Woman survive a nuclear blast?” is “By being Superman and Wonder Woman.”

Wonder Woman is also the next in Batman’s series of rotating sidekicks in Batman and Wonder Woman #30:

The quest for Damian’s remains takes Batman to Paradise Island and into direct conflict with Wonder Woman!

I have no idea what’s been going on in this book since Damian died, but presumably something has gone awry with the boy’s remains and Paradise Island might have something to do with it.  This sounds like another “put two superheroes in a book and make them fight” issue, which is sort of cliché, but this series has garnered a lot of critical acclaim and Batman and Wonder Woman are always a fun pairing.  At the very least, it should be a better time than Wonder Woman’s romantic shenanigans with Superman.

Finally, Wonder Woman is also set to guest star in Batman Beyond Universe #9.  Apparently in this future universe, she’d been gone for a while and is now back and is acting somewhat shady.  This is the first issue of a four-part story, and while Wonder Woman isn’t on the cover perhaps we’ll see her on future issues.  Batman Beyond Universe #9 is out April 30, and will be out in digital first installments in the weeks before that.  Plus she’s still in Justice League, even though the team is now led by Lex Luthor.

April is going to be a big (i.e. expensive!) month for Wonder Woman fans.  Hopefully we’ll get some fun stories!

    batman is trying to revive Damian, this is why he goes to Paradise Island see if there is something to bring Damian to life. At least this fight WW won’t be beaten up. Unless Batgod is back.
    would be so awkward if Batman and Wonder Woman sells more than SMWW…

    • Gab Says:

      batman always sells

    • Tim Hanley Says:

      Given the rate at which Superman/Wonder Woman is slipping down the charts, I think Batman and Wonder Woman #30 is going to outsell Superman/Wonder Woman #7 handily. Probably by at least 10,000 issues, I’d bet.

      • Gab Says:

        Do not be surprised to see in the future a batman / wonder woman comic regular series.

        many fans of batman / wonder woman more than superman / wonder woman

      • Green Says:

        I wouldn’t mind a batman/wonder woman ongoing, for sure there is more fans for them. If DC wanted sales they should gave gone with bat/WW instead of SMWW.

  2. Your Senior Drill Instructor Says:

    Damian’s and Talia’s bodies were exhumed (presumably by Ras) and Batman is searching for them. And it doesn’t seem like Bruce intends to resurrect Damian anymore. How Paradise Island plays into this is anybody’s guess.

    Great to see the Amazons back. 🙂

    Well it doesnt auger well for their reputation.
    Just hoping this is the final stretch for this writer.
