Wonder Woman #32 And Superman/Wonder Woman #9 Cover And Solicits

DC Comics have released the covers and solicits for all of their June 2014 comics, so let’s take a look at what Wonder Woman will be up to when the summer begins.

First up is Wonder Woman #32, which I assume will be the next to penultimate issue of Azzarello and Chiang’s run:

The casualties are mounting as Wonder Woman’s divine family tears itself apart – and Diana prepares to make everyone feel her power as the God of War!

The solicits for Wonder Woman seem to be increasingly vague as the series goes on and this arc builds toward its conclusion.  What we do know is that characters are going to die as the gods war with each other (that Zeke is tied to Wonder Woman’s back makes me worry about Zola!), and that the bondage minotaur is still around.  I thought that a minotaur in bondage gear was going to be a one-off joke, but nope; he’s a major character, it seems.

As a completely random sidenote, where’s Athena in all of this?  She’s a VERY important deity in the Greek pantheon, and yet she’s been nowhere to be seen in this book, though there have been occasional owl sightings.  I’m going to go on record and predict a deus ex machina ending for this arc in the form of Athena showing up at some point and doing something cool.  She’s got to show up, right?  Her absence is very conspicuous to me.

Also, this issue has a Bombshells variant cover by Ant Lucia, which might be cool.  Those bombshell statues are fun and retro, and not gross or terribly exploitive like a lot of DC’s other female statues.  Or June’s Red Hood and the Outlaws cover; did you see that thing?  It’s AWFUL.  Anyway, if DC wants to do sexy gals, Bombshells is far and away their least offensive method for doing so.  I don’t love the idea, but it could have been WAY worse.

Superman/Wonder Woman #9 has a Bombshells cover as well, along with Red Lantern Supergirl and a still Doomsdayed Superman:

“SUPERMAN: DOOMED” continues with “ENEMY OF THE STATE”! As things get more dire on Earth for him, the Man of Steel may have to go into exile in space, but the self-proclaimed protectors of Sector 2814, the Red Lanterns, don’t want him there either! Don’t miss this deadly face-off between Kal and Kara!

Hey, heroes are going to fight each other.  Haven’t seen that before.  I wonder if after they fight they’ll then set aside their differences and work together to fix the problem and defeat the real bad guys?  I don’t know, I’m just spitballing here.

The “Doomed” crossover continues in June, but it seems to just be crossing over with Action Comics now.  Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr. are taking over Superman and doing their own thing, and while Supergirl is on the cover of this issue, Supergirl the comic is in the middle of a different story.

Anyway, Superman’s doing some stuff and Wonder Woman’s there too, I guess? She’s not mentioned in the solicit, so it’s hard to know what she’s up to.

Finally, the Wonder Woman arc continues in Batman Beyond Universe #11, out June 25, AND Wonder Woman is back in Smallville Season 11: Lantern #3, out June 11, which is AWESOME.  I love that Wonder Woman!  She’s not on the cover of either book so they aren’t pictured, but both should be a fun read.

Look for all of these comics this June, online or in comic shops everywhere.
