This week’s issue of Superman/Wonder Woman is an epilogue to the “Doomed” storyline that I assume ended at some point in a book that was not Superman/Wonder Woman. I didn’t follow it in any of the other titles, so I missed half of what happened and the entire ending it seems. If someone wants to spoil the ending in the comments for those of us who only buy this book because it says “Wonder Woman” on it, I’d be much obliged.
Anyway, the “Doomed” stuff seems sorted, Superman is rocking a beard, and it looks like Wonder Woman and Superman are set to fight a flower creature. Let’s take a look at this preview of Superman/Wonder Woman #12 from Comicosity:
That’s a lot of recapping and scintillating romance. These two just do not work together for me at all. I find the romance stuff so awkward. But a fight against a giant plant creature might be fun. I’m always game for a cool fight.
On the behind the scenes side of things, this is Charles Soule’s last issue of Superman/Wonder Woman. He’s signed an exclusive deal with Marvel, where’s he writing books like She-Hulk and The Death of Wolverine, so all of his DC work is wrapping up. Soule’s last issue is also artist Jack Herbert’s first issue on the series proper. He worked on the annual this summer, and drew bits of the “Doomed” storyline in other books. They’ll both be replaced next month by the series’ new creative team, Peter Tomasi and Doug Mahnke.
Look for Superman/Wonder Woman #12 in comic shops or online this Wednesday as we all bid a fond farewell to Charles Soule. Superman/Wonder Woman hasn’t been my cup of tea, but Soule seems like a swell guy and I wish him all the best at Marvel!
