David Finch may not be everyone's favorite artist but that Wonder Woman page 2 splash has a heck of a lot of detail to it!  Click here for a scrollable web-version of it.   "The Kitchen" goes for a new record by dropping the f-bomb 8 times in a 5-page preview.  Grant Morrison channels old-school Captain Marvel goodness with Thunderworld.  A crime spree hits Gotham, and the targets appear to be members of Batwoman's team.  Superman's "Joker" may not be who you think it is.  Five years from now the new Firestorm battles the new Dr Polaris.  Darkseid's arrival on Earth 2 signals a world's end. The Justice League struggles to contain the Amazo Virus as it spreads to other parts of the United States. 


Wonder Woman #37

Superman arrives on Paradise Island to support Wonder Woman in her darkest hour, but their bond may be breaking apart!  No time for Diana to think, though, as a mythological force seemingly tied to Wonder Woman's role as War attacks the Amazons!

In part two, the girls find their newly claimed criminal empire under threat when a sleazy hustler blackmails them for more money than they have.

With a single word, Billy Batson transforms from boy reporter for Whiz Media into the world’s Mightiest Mortal – Captain Marvel!  Along with the other members of the Marvel Family, Captain Marvel battles dastardly villains like Mr. Mind and the Monster Society of Evil! But now, his greatest foe has attacked the Rock of Eternity – the source of the Marvel Family’s power – and it could mean the end of reality as we know it! What impossible villains are Sivana teaming up with who could spell doom for the Multiverse?  From where did Sivana’s children get their newfound super powers?  And what does the appearance of one mysterious comic book mean for the heroes of Thunderworld?

About the Author - IvCNuB4

IvCNuB4 likes to maintain an air of mystery by never publicly revealing his true name unless you are one of the four lucky Outhouse posters he has PM'd it to. A life-long Chicago native, he was introduced to comics by his older brother's vast collection of Silver Age issues. When he is not at his day job as an IT geek or making the most of Chicago's three months of incredible summer, he can found spending way too much time with his very large, very loud Italian family. You will never find him on the likes of Facebook or Twitter as he scoffs at the necessity of most forms of social media.
