Forget Lois Lane—these days, Superman only has eyes for Princess Diana of Themyscira. Writer Soule (Swamp Thing) and artist Daniel (Detective Comics) have taken over the romantic subplot that spun out of the Justice League series. The super couple must try to keep their relationship secret while saving the world from threats from the Phantom Zone, but their privacy comes crashing down when photos of their first kiss are leaked on the Internet—a twist somewhat prescient of the recent celebrity hacking outrage. But the focus is clearly on action, as Daniel remains DC’s go-to artist for glorious widescreen panels of superhuman punch-fests. Soule keeps things from seeming too mindless with clever dialogue (and mildly steamy PG romance) for both Clark and Diana, and adds in delicious meddling from the Greek god Apollo for a classical flourish. Letterer Carlos Mangual also deserves kudos for wrangling Soule’s sometimes overly wordy script into neat speech bubbles. The plot gets muddled and then abandoned toward the end, but that doesn’t stop the book’s first arc from being an enjoyable spandex romp. (Sept.)

While romantic attraction between this pair isn't new, turning the spotlight on it in a series of their own is—finally. The series debut arc collected here delivers plenty of action, but it's largely about the main characters' relationships: together, apart, and with the universe at large (the depictions of the various responses to the news of their, ahem, coupling are worth the cover price alone). The many clever turns include Clark Kent's digital-age reporting career and the return of supervillain couple Zod and Faora as the first major villains whom our heroes vanquish together. The masterly artwork by an armada of artists is strongly and appropriately influenced by the illustration of Jim Lee, and it manages to be iconic and gritty as required. The only ebook extra is an admittedly nifty cover gallery.
Verdict Not a drastic revision, but rather a look at some old favorites through fresh, contemporary eyes, this is one power couple worth following. Recommended for all superhero fans; plenty of comic-book violence and mayhem, with some sensual suggestions, but suitable for YA up.—J. Osicki, Saint John Free P.L., NB

    Book of the year candidate

    The best book I've read so far this year. A troubled romance between two mega superheroes in the DC universe there is so much that could have gone wrong but the creative team behind this series are right on target. Wonder Woman is deeper and more well rounded than she's been in years. Maternal, intuative, femanine and looking so good doing it all she truly is a wonder among women. Superman goes through various whiny guy troubles and doubts before his girl straightens him out and he gets to doing what he does best - taking all you got before kicking your ass. And this is were the creative team really excells - in combining action and romance. There are no wasrted panels here and the scene were Zod - the baddie - opens up the phantom zone as Superman tries to stop while an unseen Wonder Woman works through her own insecurities via thought panels is the comic book craftat it's best. It's worth buying this book just for that sequence alone but there are many others.

    A must buy read for everyone - people who don't like superheroes, people who do like superheroes and all the flavors in between add this to your collection; you will not be disappointed.

    Best Superman and Wonder Woman book on the shelves!

    Superman kicks Apollo's ass and we get to see the New 52 Zod for the first time. Who could want more? Oh...okay. Zod breaks his girlfriend out of the Phantom Zone to conquer the Earth! If you've never liked or picked up a Superman or Wonder Woman book before, you will still like this one!
