I wasn’t expecting much from the New 52‘s latest addition, but the first issue of Superman/Wonder Woman #1 from writer Charles Soule and artist Tony Daniel turns out to be better than expected. Focused more on the differences of the two characters and the unique challenges of their relationship, Superman/Wonder Woman #1 may not sell me on the idea of Superman and Wonder Woman as a couple, but it does find an interesting way to explore that relationship.
Of course if you’re going to put two of DC Comics’ biggest guns in a single book you’re going to need some big bads for them to fight. The cover teases the kinds of villains the pair may face as the series continues, but the first issue gives them a storm, a plane in need of rescue, and a monster-sized threat that certainly fits the bill with the appearance of Doomsday.
DC hasn’t been able to get me to stick with Wonder Woman or Superman’s various solo titles, but I’m at least a little interested to see where this will lead. Worth a look.
