Diana’s model U.N. project goes up in flames when she tries to intervene and stop the exiled Bana-Mighdall Amazons from invading the nation of Qurac under false pretenses. She clashes with Artemis, who wants her exiled sisters to go to war, despite the fact that the expat Amazons are being manipulated…by none other than the deadly Rustam, Quraci seditionist and rebel leader! Now it’s up to Wonder Woman to lasso this runaway war train before it can get up to speed-and it’s about to pull out of the station.

At the behest of Aztek, Diana and Artemis join her for a trip to Mexico, but there’s no sightseeing on the agenda. Instead, they must rescue a long-lost Amazon who’s being held captive by rogue deity Tezcatlipoca, who’s trying to break into our world. Can our three heroes save the missing Amazon, stop a raging god and not kill one another in the process?

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

The Amazing Spider-Man #4 (Marvel) – So far so good in this Nick Spencer helmed comic which is already showing a different voice from the Spider-Man of the past few years. We’ve been surprised so far and this is one that has exceeded our expectations.

Aphrodite V #2 (Image Comics/Top Cow Productions) – The first issue was an interesting an entertaining take on the character. With a new setting and new characters, and a little mix of real world issues, this is one we’ve got our eye on.

Batman: King of Fear #1 (DC Comics) – There’s a lot of Batman out there but the return of artist Kelley Jones has us excited for this six-issue miniseries.

Black Panther #3 (Marvel) – It shouldn’t work but it totally does. Give us this revolution in space take on the classic Black Panther.

Cold Spots #1 (Image Comics) – A new horror series from Cullen Bunn with art by Mark Torres. That’s all you need to know.

Die!Die!Die! #2 (Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment) – The first issue was pure over the top violence and insanity. We’re in to see if the second can deliver just as much.

Double Jumpers: Full Circle Jerks #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – The first volume was some 8-bit geeky fun and we’re hopeful the second can deliver on that again.

Justice League Dark #2 (DC Comics) – The team is an interesting one and this series in an issue has stood out from the rest of the Justice League comics. A focus on horror/magic is part of that but it’s the team and their personalities that’s selling this one.

Life of Captain Marvel #2 (Marvel) – Is it tweaking what we know about the character? Yes. Do we care? No, especially when the first issue was so good.

Planet of the Apes: Visionaries (BOOM! Studios) – It’s Rod Serling’s unused take on the classic property and it’ll get you to rethink the original.

The Punisher #1 (Marvel) – This feels like a getting back to basics for the character and we’re excited for that.

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #23 (Marvel) – This continues to be Indiana Jones in space with a character whose attitude rivals Han Solo. Always fun and always entertaining.

Teen Titans #21 (DC Comics) – It’s a new team with a new attitude and the first issue was fantastic with a hell of a twist ending and we want to see where that goes.

West Coast Avengers #1 (Marvel) – This line up of characters has us sold.

Wonder Woman #53 (DC Comics) – Steve Orlando taking on Wonder Woman? Yes please!

The Death of Superman Clip – Wonder Woman vs. Doomsday

Wonder Woman goes head-to-head with Doomsday in the streets of Metropolis in this new clip from The Death of Superman.

The Death of Superman ultimately finds Superman in a fight to the finish when the Man of Steel becomes the only hero who can stand in the way of the monstrous creature Doomsday and his unstoppable rampage of destruction.

As the inaugural film in the DC Universe Movies series, Superman Doomsday told an abridged version of The Death of Superman, DC Comics’ landmark 1992-93 comic phenomenon. But with a runtime of 75 minutes, the film focused on a core, singular storyline. The new, animated The Death of Superman, the first of a two-part film experience that will conclude with Reign of the Supermen in early 2019, restores many of the moments and characters that fans hold dear to their hearts.

The all-star cast is led by Jerry O’Connell (Crossing Jordan, Stand By Me), Rebecca Romijn (X-Men, The Librarians) and Rainn Wilson (The Office) as the voices of Superman, Lois Lane and Lex Luthor, respectively. The potent trio is joined by the DC Universe Movies’ returning voices of the Justice League: Jason O’Mara (The Man in High Castle, Terra Nova) as Batman, Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Rent, Daredevil) as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore (S.W.A.T., Criminal Minds) as Cyborg, Nathan Fillion (Castle, ABC’s upcoming The Rookie) as Green Lantern/Hal Jordan, Matt Lanter (Timeless) as Aquaman, and Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs, Ugly Betty) as The Flash.

The film is out on digital now and Ultra Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD on August 7th.

Then, is Man’s World ready for Wonder Woman to bring Amazonian justice to today’s society? Guest writer Steve Orlando (Justice League of America) delves into that theme in “Transformation Island,” which sees Diana visiting the small-time crook known as Mayfly in jail over the course of several years. But how do these visits impact Diana and Mayfly?

Review: Justice League Dark #1

Justice League Dark #1 is like the Justice League only weirder and dysfunctional, Seriously, Wonder Woman and Man-Bat are the only two team members until the Alvaro Martinez Bueno, Raul Fernandez, and Brad Anderson splash page. In the opening salvo of his series spinning out of the Justice League: No Justice, writer James Tynion IV introduces his main threat both verbally and visually: magic is dying and humanity with it. However, he gives the varied denizens of Justice League Dark humanity and humor and along with Martinez’s engrossing double page spread, keeps the book entertaining and not overwhelmed by the gravity of its stakes like its brother League book.

From the first scene where Zatanna’s simple rabbit in the hat trick turns into a B-horror movie, Tynion and Martinez set up Justice League Dark as a book about the ever shifting and chaotic nature of magic first and punching things later. These priorities are reflected in his choice of cast members, who with the notable exception of Wonder Woman aren’t the team up and fight things type although they are in all out action by the time the final page arrives. Zatanna, who is Wonder Woman’s first choice for her “magical” Justice League team, refuses at first because of complicated reasons like her father’s death and a valid belief that a superhero team isn’t the best way to investigate the dying of magic. In Justice League Dark #1’s first double page spread, Martinez and Fernandez show that Diana and Zatanna don’t have the greatest chemistry with Wonder Woman relying on brute force while Zatanna continues to fall back on her spells even as they backfire in multicolored explosions from Anderson. And the other “members” are even less conventional from Detective Chimp, who is more mopey bartender and comic relief and heavy hitter to Man-Bat,

Speaking of Man-Bat, Dr. Kirk Langstrom almost steals the entire comic of Justice League Dark #1 as he pulls off the whole villain striving for redemption as a hero with humor and quirkiness instead of the cliched brooding darkness. The inviting nature of Man-Bat as a character begins with the visual design with Alvaro Martinez Bueno and Raul Fernandez going for the totally adorable combination of bat head and lab coat and Brad Anderson choosing a more neutral grey instead of going full Goth with his palette. Until the big fight at the end when Martinez and Fernandez make Man-Bat more ferocious and less cuddly with intense line work, they and Tynion craft the character more like Beast from the X-Men and less than the horrific, nocturnal threat of Batman The Animated Series’ pilot “On Leather Wings”. He’s another hit on James Tynion’s “rogues gallery rehab” world tour that kicked off with his heroic and heartbreaking writing of Basil Karlo aka Clayface in Detective Comics.  Hopefully, these small moments of Man-Bat obsessively rattling his scientific credentials, Traci 13 jokingly turning Detective Chimp’s beer into apple juice, and heaven and Hell (Aka Lucifer and Zauriel) squaring off in basically a Goth board room setting continue throughout the series as the threat of the Otherkind ramps up.

In Justice League Dark #1, James Tynion takes one part of his tongue in cheek, yet serious exploration of magic and its consequences and complexities in his Hellblazer run, another part the family dynamic of Detective Comics, and gives the book the blockbuster sensibility of co-writing gigs with Scott Snyder and others on books like Dark Nights Metal and Justice League No Justice even going back to his work on the Batman Eternal weeklies and turns into a fairly delightful concoction. He, Alvaro Martinez Bueno, Raul Fernandez, and Brad Anderson create connections between characters before having them punch, bite, or throw tendrils of the Green at things and the philosophy makes the book shine even if the antagonists are vaguer and vague.

Plus Tynion writes Swamp Thing like Treebeard from Lord of the Rings, which is incredibly ingenious.
