DC

Wonder Woman #32

Written by: Brian Azzarello

Art by: Cliff Chiang

Wonder Woman #31 was another strong issue and Diana really embraced herself as God of War and Queen of Paradise Island. The problems she faced revolving around the Amazon’s fear of changing who they are really showcased Diana’s ability as Queen, while her struggle to change herself and taking up the mantle as God of War has been evident in the series so far and it appears from the previews that this is the issue where she steps up and takes upon herself the title in what looks like another great issue as we approach the climatic ending of Azzarello and Chiang’s run.

Marvel

silver surfer 3 coverSilver Surfer #3

Written by: Dan Slott

Art by: Mike Allred

This book like all books that have Allred’s name attached to them, need to be seen to believed. They are a spectacle in them selves. Pair that with the whimsical nature of Dan Slott’s writing style and you have yourself a winner. The Silver Surfer and his partner for the book Dawn have teamed up to save the future in this newest issue. We have also been promised a villainous toy monkey, so why more could you ask for? If you have gone off Mr Slott, for whatever reason do not be put off picking up this book because of that.

 

Independent

ww32

The Wicked + The Divine #1

Written by: Kieron Gillen

Art by: Jamie McKelvie

Young Avengers was probably one of the best received books over the last couple of years from the Big Two and Gillen and McKelvie have teamed up again to bring us a new superhero story. Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. A superhero fantasy world where gods are the ultimate pop stars. This is an over-sized first issue and it is great because of it because Gillen gets the chance to lay down the foundations of the books direction and gives him time to introduce some intriguing characters. The Pencilling and Colouring really brings this book to life and is very aesthetically pleasing. There are a host of great independently published books out this week, but you should definitely pick this up if you can!

 

Which books are you looking forward to this Wednesday, let us know in the comments……
