Superman/Wonder Woman: Futures End #1 is on sale today, along with Wonder Woman: Futures End #1, and Comic Book Resources has a peek at the book. The preview sheds a lot of light on the mysterious Wonder Woman preview I posted on Monday, but none of it yet sounds particularly interesting. Let’s take a look:
So all of that craziness in the Wonder Woman: Futures End #1 preview was just a weird dream that Wonder Woman was having. That seems like a waste of an issue, though I haven’t read it yet. Perhaps there’s more to it.
It sounds like Wonder Woman and Superman’s relationship went south at some point between now and five years in the future, which is the one thing I like about this “Futures End” thing so far. However, Superman’s still got some feelings for Wonder Woman, so perhaps their love will be rekindled as they escape Tartarus together. We can only hope.
This issue was originally solicited to have art by Tom Raney, but instead Bart Sears has taken over the interiors and Raney has only drawn the cover. From what I’m seeing here, neither look particularly great, which is a shame. For all of its faults, Superman/Wonder Woman‘s usually had decent art. It seems silly of DC to throw a big event and then have lower tier artists draw most of it. That’s got to hurt the brand on some level.
Superman/Wonder Woman: Futures End #1 is available in comic shops and online today! I’ll be back on Friday with a combination review of both issues, seeing as they tie together (tomorrow will be the usual Sensation Comics review. Why Sensation Comics first? Because I like it better).
