Review: Sensational Wonder Woman #1

Sensational Wonder Woman #1

The new year kicks off with a new digital-first series from DC Comics. Sensational Wonder Woman #1 puts the focus on Wonder Woman with an intriguing comic that slowly builds. Wonder Woman stands for so much and part of that is against misogyny and the repression of women. Sensational Wonder Woman #1 knows that and puts that front and center for an entertaining debut that has us wanting to see what’s next.

Writer Stephanie Phillips takes a familiar route with Diana, aka Wonder Woman, in a situation where she’s dreaming. Is this a coma? Has she been beaten to this point? That’s not mentioned but something has happened. Phillips teases that with glimpses of Wonder Woman in the real world. That only makes the issue even more interesting, you want to find out more of what happened.

There’s also some interesting aspects to what Phillips puts forth. In Diana’s dream state, she’s depicted in a subservient domestic situation. She’s the stereotypical wife, expected to have dinner ready. While this is likely the influence of what has put her in this situation, it’s interesting her battle against this and it’s through pain she awakens from her state.

Meghan Hetrick‘s art is fantastic. The designs are awesome and with the color of Marissa Louise it all pops on my iPad. Wonder Woman’s classic costume is translated into an everyday outfit that fits that stereotypical time period but with a bit of a modern twist to it. There’s some great layouts and use of panels to emphasize the situation that Diana is in until that explosive finale that really delivers a punch.

Sensational Wonder Woman #1 is a solid start to the series. There’s a build-up to that ending with teasing of the situation through the comic. It’s an interesting comic that uses its visuals to really set up the situation and world and has me sucked in to find out more about what’s going on.

Dynamite Announces a New Packed Release Schedule for July 1

As summer approaches, Dynamite is heating up as the comic industry roars back with its comeback, and is delivering a scorching haul to fans and retailers for July 1st!

To charge up an otherwise slow week of comics releases, Dynamite is bringing its big guns to brighten up the excitement around returning stories and supporting comic shops. Five of the bestselling and best-reviewed titles will all be out the same week.

The issues are:

  • The Boys: Dear Becky #2
  • Vampirella #10
  • Vengeance of Vampirella #8
  • Red Sonja #16
  • Killing Red Sonja #2

As the second season on Prime is set for an official release date any day now, now is the perfect time for fans to dive into the long-awaited sequel to The Boys with the second issue of Dear Becky. Co-creators Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson return with artist Russ Braun, colorist Tony Aviña, and letterer Simon Bowland. The classic creative team is all back years after they concluded the original juggernaut run and they haven’t missed a step.

Dear Becky

Meanwhile, in Vampirella Christoper Priest‘s intricate saga reaches a climax, as Vampirella falls to her lowest point. Still recovering from a traumatic plane crash and turbulent personal life, she turns to others for help – and one may be the mastermind who has been manipulating all the events to date… With stunning covers from Lucio Parrillo, Guillem March, Fay Dalton, Meghan Hetrick, interior artist Ergün Gündüz, and more, this is an issue not to miss.

In the flagship of the other big Woman of Dynamite, Eisner-nominated scribe Mark Russell continues to spin one of the most acclaimed series in the industry in Red Sonja. Exploring concepts like power, war, and leadership, it has only gotten more enticing moving into its second year with the big war won. What happens next for Sonja the Red?

Across that first year of Russell’s Red Sonja, the titular character lead the rag-tag Hyrkanians against a despotic king. With Red Sonja slaying Dragan the Magnificent in a climactic battle, his surviving son Prince Cyril has vowed revenge on the fiery-haired killer. Alongside co-writer Bryce Ingman and fan-favorite artist Craig Rousseau, Mark Russell chronicles that quest in Killing Red Sonja. Spiced with magic, humor, and more, it’s an indisposable companion to the main series.

Fans looking for a straight shot of classic comic book storytelling with modern sensibilities know that Vengeance of Vampirella is a true hit. Or they better get on it fast! The multitalented Tom Sniegoski, who has written everything from the Punisher, Hellboy, Bone, and dozens of novels, returns to the character he defined for an entire decade. Picking right up where he left off in the 1990s, but incorporating the 25-year absence, this book is comfort food for every longtime fan of the Daughter of Drakulon, and also perfectly approachable for all newcomers.

Review: Artemis and the Assassin #2

A time-travel action adventure as an assassin from the future must kill a woman from the past. The issue is full of fight scenes and excitement and can be enjoyed even if you missed the first issue.
