It may be late in the day, but dagnabbit, it’s still Wednesday! Usually I write these things the night before, but last night I was exhausted and in a bit of a funk and not feeling up to writing. But also, I knew this particular Wednesday would be a big one for Wonder Woman. Maybe the biggest news is that Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang’s run on Wonder Woman ends today with issue 35, clearing the way for the much-dreaded new team of David and Meredith Fitch, but I read the current Wonder Woman series in trade collections, so I can’t talk intelligently about the last issue without reading the run-up to it. I will say, though, that all of DC’s series this month have Halloween-themed “monster” variants available, and Aaron Lopestri’s vampire variant for Wonder Woman #35 is pretty great.

Both DC and Marvel have a tendency to bounce from one earth-shattering giant crossover event to another and another, with scarcely a month or two between them, giving any given series hardly any time to develop a story of its own before it’s siderailed by whatever shattering the earth is doing at the moment. A few weeks ago, I wrote about DC’s most recent one,

Future’s End, about some horrible dystopian future not long from now. Well, the giant crossover event before that, Forever Evil, is about a horrible dystopian present. Read more

Before I really get into this week’s entry, let me just say that we got some amazingly good Wonder Woman news this week. One of the few DC Comics that I enjoy enough to actually pick up in single issues is Batman ’66. Based on and written in the style of the Adam West TV show, it’s a rare bit of fun that DC is somehow publishing while its main line of comics is relentlessly dark and gritty and ’90s Image-style xxxtreme. Well, one thing I’ve been saying is, “But what I’d really like to see is Wonder Woman ’77!” And darned if that’s not just

what DC is giving us—yet another WW series, this one based on the 1970s Lynda Carter TV show! I complain a lot about how I feel DC has misused and continues to misuse the world’s most prominent female superhero, but this news fills me with delight. And that will mean four ongoing Wonder Woman series, at least if you count Superman/Wonder Woman, which I guess we have to. And two of them (WW ’77 and Sensation Comics) I’m even interested in!

Last Wednesday no fewer than three comics starring Wonder Woman came out. If that’s not worth a write-up, I don’t know what is.

We’re still in the late 1970s period of the first season of the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman TV series, and because that season was set during World War II, suddenly so was the Wonder Woman comic book. In DC Comics continuity, that meant a shirt to Earth-2, where Wondy, Superman and Batman were all active in the 1940s, as part of the Justice Society of America.
