Cover And Solicit For Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman #2

Now that I’m home from vacation, I’m catching up on a few things I missed over the past two weeks. First up is all of the solicits for comics coming out this September. We’ve seen covers and solicits for September’s Wonder Woman and Superman/Wonder Woman’s “Futures End” event tie-in books already, but there’s now a third regular Wonder Woman book so let’s check in on Sensation Comics:


Cover by GENE HA
On sale SEPTEMBER 17 • 40 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T • DIGITAL FIRST
Diana Prince’s heroics continue! Wonder Woman faces her greatest peril as the Gods’ gifts are withdrawn one by one. And since their first gift was life, how far will her unraveling go? Then, learn how Diana earned the twin bracelets that protect her from the bullets of Man’s World!

This sounds like a fun issue. Both Ivan Cohen and Jason Bischoff have been regular writers on DC’s cartoon-based comics so perhaps they’ll bring a lighter touch to their respective Wonder Woman stories. On the art side, Marcus To has worked on Red Robin and Huntress and recently drew the rather enjoyable Wendy’s kids meal Superman/Wonder Woman comic. There are a couple of David Williams who draw comics, but I’m guessing that this one is the artist who has recently worked on Batman ’66, Adventures of Superman, and Legends of the Dark Knight. Cover artist Gene Ha is the most well known of the bunch, with several Eisner awards and an impressive body of work that includes Top 10 and a variety of DC’s properties.

As much as I like this creator line-up, I’m a little bit disappointed to not see any female creators, especially after the first issue had several. I was hoping the series could be a showcase for female creators, but we’re already at all dudes and we’re only two issues in. Perhaps we’ll see more female creators with Sensation Comics #3.

Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #2 is available in paper form on September 17, and the various stories it includes will be available digitally in the weeks leading up to that, so keep your eyes peeled for those.
