Wonder Woman’s July 2015 Covers And Solicits

July is going to be a very busy month for Wonder Woman. Between her own titles, team books, and guest appearances, it sounds like she’s going to be around a lot. This could get expensive for all the completist collectors out there! Let’s take a look at what Wonder Woman will be up to in July, starting with her eponymous series:

To replace Ares as the God of War, Wonder Woman must better understand him – and that means a journey to Ares’ home! You can just imagine what that entails! Plus, learn who is behind the attacks on Paradise Island!

This costume still does nothing for me. Nor does Wonder Woman getting into a fight with this heavily pouched soldier person. Ares’ home is a thing that could be cool in theory but probably won’t in execution. And the attacks on Paradise Island must be a new thing we haven’t gotten to yet, unless it’s the attacks on the Manazons from last issue, but we already know who did those. Anyway, not much to look forward to here, but such will be the case so long as the Finches are on the book, I fear.

Onto Superman/Wonder Woman #19:

SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #19
Written by PETER J. TOMASI
Art and cover by DOUG MAHNKE and JAIME MENDOZA
TEEN TITANS GO! Variant cover by SEAN “CHEEKS” GALLOWAY
On sale JULY 15 • 32 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T
The Superman epic you never expected – “TRUTH” continues! Is there truth in madness? Harley Quinn and the Suicide Squad guest-star!

Details are still very sparse on this “Truth” storyline, though some spoilers have come out this morning that might shed some light on things. And it sounds awful. I won’t spoil it here, but go check out Bleeding Cool. Anyway, Wonder Woman seems involved not just in this book, but in most of the Superman line as “Truth” crosses over with at least four series. Technically I could list all of Super-books, really, but the solicits are all equally vague. If this is a story that piques your interest, just buy all the books.

Now to Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #12:

SENSATION COMICS FEATURING WONDER WOMAN #12
Written by DEREK FRIDOLFS and MATTHEW K. MANNING
Art by TOM FOWLER, GEORGES JEANTY and KARL STORY
Cover by EMANUELA LUPACCHINO
On sale JULY 15 • 40 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T • DIGITAL FIRST
Diana’s visit to Paradise Island’s harvest festival is interrupted by monsters! Typhon, the last son of Gaia, is breaking free of imprisonment and his minions have already begun wreaking havoc. Help is coming from another woman with connections to the Earth Mother, but will Wonder Woman accept aid from Poison Ivy? Then, Batman sends Diana on a vacation in the mountains, hoping that “A Moment of Peace” will help her adjust to life in Man’s World.

The Fridolfs/Fowler story started digitally yesterday, and it is GREAT. So be sure to pick up this issue. It sounds like it’s going to be a good one, plus that Emanuela Lupacchino cover is pretty rad. She always does great work.

Wonder Woman is also front and center on the cover of Justice League #42:

JUSTICE LEAGUE #42
Written by GEOFF JOHNS
Art and cover by JASON FABOK
TEEN TITANS GO! Variant cover by DAN HIPP
On sale JULY 15 • 32 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T
The epic “Darkseid War” event storyline continues with the critically acclaimed team of Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok! As Darkseid and the Anti-Monitor maneuver toward inevitable war, Wonder Woman leads the Justice League against a force that holds the answers on how to stop it – but the price might be Batman’s soul! Meanwhile, Mister Miracle faces off against a mysterious hero who has been fighting in the shadows for decades!

Wonder Woman is in the book every month, but I usually only spotlight it when she gets a good cover spot. I’m not reading the series, but from what I’ve seen of Jason Fabok’s take on her and her costume, I really like it. He seems to have a good grasp of the character. Also, in further spoiler news, it sounds like the Amazons may have a role in the upcoming “Darkseid War”, though not in a good way. Again, no direct spoilers here; head over to Bleeding Cool if you want to know what’s up.

Finally, Wonder Woman has a few guest spots lined up in July, but the one where she’s most prominently featured is Deathstroke #8:

DEATHSTROKE #8
Written by TONY S. DANIEL and JIM BONNY
Art and cover by TONY S. DANIEL
TEEN TITANS GO! Variant cover by SEAN “CHEEKS” GALLOWAY
On sale JULY 22 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T+
“Godkiller” continues! Get ready for divine brutality when Slade’s contract on the Gods sends him smashing into combat against the one and only Wonder Woman!

The book is written and drawn by Tony Daniel, who spent some time with Wonder Woman when he helped launch Superman/Wonder Woman a while back. It’s not a terribly auspicious association with the character, and she looks oddly crazed here, but at least it’s nice to see Wonder Woman getting so much exposure in July. Weird she’s not in the new costume, though.

You better start saving up now to buy all these Wonder Woman comics in July! It could put a serious dent in your wallet.
