Superman/Wonder Woman, Vol. 2: War and PeaceSuperman/Wonder Woman, Vol. 2: War and Peace by Charles Soule

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Technically this is a DNF —

Warning this is a trade paperback not a graphic novel.

Collects issues #8-12, SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN ANNUAL #1, WONDER WOMAN: FUTURES END #1 and SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN: FUTURES END #1.

I quickly realised that these issues are part of a larger story making this a hot mess of a collection. Most of these issues with the exception of the Worlds End issues are printed in order with the storyline in
Superman Doomed by Charles Soule
Superman: Doomed.

Thankfully I had purchased that back in the summer when it was on the kindle sale for $5; so I’ll be moving to that volume instead. Unless you are a completest and simply must have all the volumes save your money on this one and buy Superman: Doomed for the whole story; as this is pretty much incoherent.

Superman/Wonder Woman, Vol. 1: Power Couple by Charles Soule

Superman/Wonder Woman, Vol. 1: Power CoupleSuperman/Wonder Woman, Vol. 1: Power Couple by Charles Soule

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In a nutshell, this story basically centers around Zod and Faora plotting to get out of the phantom zone. Some light romance between Diana and Clark, with cameo appearances from Batman, Doomsday, and some of Diana’s friends and family. I’m pretty indifferent to the romance between Superman and Wonder Woman; I just don’t find it particularly compelling. There are dangling plot threads at the end of the volume, that I assume will be returned to.

The art in this volume is really lovely; however it’s got a few different artists working on it, so you will note some differences. It’s the kind of art I really think of when I think of DC Comics, big, bold, and dramatic. Absolutely beautifully colored throughout the book.

Diana looking fierce.

Kneel before Zod!

Batman is everybody’s favorite surly friend.

I love the colors used in the background of this panel of Zod and Faora; it really makes it pop.

So, it seems that Clark is the backseat driver of superhero battles.
