Superman/Wonder Woman #7 is out tomorrow, and the good folks at Comic Book Resources have put up a preview. When we last saw our superpowered lovers, they were in the midst of a nuclear blast, so they’re probably dead and the series is over, right? Wrong! Surprisingly, they’re okay. Let’s take a look:
So after a couple of not completely terrible issues, Superman/Wonder Woman is doing that thing where no one talks very much and there’s not much going on artwise, and then when they do talk it’s really inane romance stuff. I’m not super enthused to see that format return. I like when things actually happen. Where are Zod and Faora? And why isn’t this book Zod/Faora instead? I’d be all over that.
Anyway, Tony S. Daniel is taking a month off so there are three different artists for this issue. And it’s a prelude to the “Doomed” crossover, where Superman is going to turn into a Doomsday monster sort of thing. Maybe soaking up all that nuclear radiation messed with his genetics. It certainly thinned him out; the dude is rail thin here. That’s kind of an interesting idea, having solar energy make Superman strong but the energy from a nuclear bomb make him weak. I mean, the sun is basically a cauldron of constantly exploding nuclear energy so maybe it doesn’t make a ton of sense, but still. I like the idea. I’m less excited about four pages of Wonder Woman trying to break through the clouds, though.
Superman/Wonder Woman #7 is out everywhere tomorrow. You can pick it up at your local comic shop or buy it online.
