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?
War is declared on the new Devil's Island, and the Secret Six are facing off against themselves. On opposite sides and ready to die -- or kill! -- for their causes, the Six are in a tight spot. But what are they fighting over that's strong -- and brutal -- enough to take down Wonder Woman herself? Only Gail Simone and artist Nicola Scott know. But the preview pages below will give you a hint. SECRET SIX #13 hits 9/9. [gallery link="file"]
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"]
We've had a lot of fun recently showing off the amazing cover work of SECRET SIX cover artist Daniel Lu Visi, so why stop? You've all seen his take on Bane and Deadshot, so how about his interpretation of Black Alice, one of writer Gail Simone's favorite new characters? Who's hand is that clawing up from the ground? You can figure it out.
