Superman/Wonder Woman #6 comes out next Wednesday, and Newsarama has a preview of the book. Now, I don’t much care for this series, but what I do like is new outfits. It’s always fun when a superhero get a special suit for fighting in a particularly treacherous situation; we see them in their regular costumes all the time, so I enjoy when they mix it up. Hephaestus has been working on some new armour for our title duo, but the preview cuts off at the very first time I was actually curious about what was on the next page of this series:
Good work leaving me wanting more, I suppose.
So it looks like Zod and Faora are building something evil and terrible to take over the Earth, those nefarious buggers. And Wonder Woman and Superman talk about their relationship and how much Superman just wants to protect her, which is super not interesting. Hephaestus looks like Hellboy on the last panel of that fourth page, though. That’s pretty fun.
And new outfits! I’m curious to see their fancy, Hephaestean armour. Really, that’s all I care about at this point.
Also, following up on some of my past criticism of this series, every page of this preview features multiple panels and several lines of dialogue, which is a very nice change of pace. I’ve been unimpressed with the book’s, shall we say, Spartan approach to storytelling, so I’m glad to see some more effective use of page space.
Superman/Wonder Woman #6 is out Wednesday, March 12 online and in comic shops everywhere.
