You read that correctly. An interstellar conflict waged at superspeed. Could this be in any way related to THE WAR OF THE SUPERMEN, which we announced not too long ago? Same thing, folks, and it's all hitting in May, courtesy of writers Sterling Gates and James Robinson. An epic, defining battle for the Man of Steel unleashed in one month. Because super-beings that fly fast? Well, they fight pretty fast, too.
The title is pretty ominous on its own: ADVENTURE COMICS STARRING BLACK LANTERN SUPERBOY. But what more can we reveal about the issue, which is written by Tony Bedard, with art by Travis Moore? Well, we're not saying a ton, but ADVENTURE COMICS editor Brian Cunningham has a few choice words to share. Take it away, Brian:
Wonder Woman's world is turned upside-down as she finds herself branded a criminal by her own people. And who are the Crows, and what awful secret do they carry that will affect Diana forever? I can't reveal it all here, of course, but I can show off a few pages from WONDER WOMAN #38, courtesy of Gail Simone and artist Aaron Lopresti, which hits 11/25. [gallery link="file"]

Find out some of the answers below, with a few preview pages. For more, make your way down to your shop today and pick up WONDER WOMAN #37. [gallery link="file"]
Well, we're in week two of coverage of the WONDER WOMAN #600 campaign and, what do you know? We've already crossed the midway point. As of now, we have about 324 postcards sent in from fans asking for WONDER WOMAN's numbering to be reverted to #600 at the appropriate time. Seems like the tide is turning, eh?
It's not a stretch to say writer Gail Simone and artist Aaron Lopresti's "The Rise of the Olympian" arc changed Wonder Woman's life completely, and it's not over for our favorite Amazon. In this issue, Diana finds herself fighting for her life against the man chosen by the gods to replace her -- Achilles, the Warkiller. Doesn't sound like much fun. At least for her. We've got a few pages here, though, for those us standing on the sideline and looking to be entertained. WONDER WOMAN #36 hits 9/30. [gallery link="file"]
Huh? What's the Weekly Wonder Woman Tally, you say? Well, glad you asked. Not long ago, Dan DiDio mentioned the fan debate regarding Wonder Woman's upcoming "600th" issue. Lots of people have asked Dan to revert the book to it's original numbering to commemorate the event. Far from being a pushover, Dan said that if fan response -- in the form of postcards -- was strong enough, he'd consider it. And by strong, we mean "600 postcards" strong. Get it?
Happy Friday, DC Nation! Elisabeth Gehrlein here, DCU editor of…well, a really nice range of titles. One of the things I love about my current slate of books is how varied they are – I’ve got everything on my plate from JONAH HEX to TINY TITANS, with ADVENTURE COMICS and DOOM PATROL and WONDER WOMAN in between. So every day is a genre-bending journey where one minute I could be thinking “Where did those penguins get rocket packs in the first place?” and then suddenly a colorist calls with this disturbing question: “What color should I make the fragments of his shattered legs?”
It's the conclusion to the two-part "Birds of Paradise" arc, as a gaggle of super-powered cage fighters find themselves in the worst possible place to be -- Wonder Woman and Black Canary's bad side. Also, find out the final resolution between Diana and Nemesis. What more could you want? Oh, alright. Here are a few pages. WONDER WOMAN #35 hits today. [gallery link="file"]
