In advance of DC’s full October solicits, which I assume will be out this Monday, we’ve got an early look at one of Wonder Woman’s titles, Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #3. The following cover and solicit are courtesy of MTV News, who are on quite a run with comic scoops after they revealed the stellar new Batgirl creative team earlier today. Let’s check out what’s coming up in Sensation Comics:
SENSATION COMICS FEATURING WONDER WOMAN #3
Written by GILBERT HERNANDEZ and SEAN E. WILLIAMS
Art by GILBERT HERNANDEZ and MARGUERITE SAUVAGE
Cover by IVAN REIS and JOE PRADO
When Wonder Woman allows an other dimensional science-villain to capture her, she expects to swiftly deal with his android minions and save the day. But he’s able to brainwash her and that’s when things go haywire! Then, back on Earth, we share a rare moment from Diana’s rock-star days.
First, this is a lovely cover from Ivan Reis, featuring the classic Wonder Woman costume. Reis has gotten to draw Wonder Woman a lot in Justice League, but it’s nice to see him get to focus on her specifically and bring back more traditional duds.
Second, Gilbert Hernandez!! That’s so exciting. He’s one of the legendary Hernandez Brothers of Love and Rockets fame, and his graphic novel Marble Season was one of my favourite books of 2013. I can’t wait to see his take on Diana.
Third, we’ve got a female artist as well. Marguerite Sauvage came up recently as the new cover artist for Hinterkind, and now she’s moving to interiors. She’s a great artist, and this should be a lovely issue all around.
The issue hits stores on October 15, with digital editions of the stories premiering in the weeks before that. This should be a great one, so check it out!
