Has come to our attention these books are not shipping in July as as previously advertised but August. Both will be on sale now on the 6th August 2014. So a little longer to wait but the good news is two annuals on one day! And those who haven’t pre-ordered yet can still do so! That means along with other comics, there will be a lot of Doomed for August!

You know, we see a lot of Superman/Wonder Woman detractors make noise about sales and blog inaccurate information (I’m being kind…we could call that something else) Just wanted to clear a few things up again.
Here is a look at the June 2014 comic sales chart. Note these are for the direct market ( ie pre-orders) and does not reflect digital sales, news stands, books stores, international markets, future re-orders etc. It is not the final number by any means but it is an indication of how the market trends for books ie in terms of demand.
Once again Superman/Wonder Woman is, as seen on the digital charts, a consistently good seller for DC. Superman/Wonder Woman as with Action Comics has gotten a boost with the Doomed crossover and Superman #32, the new creative team of Johns/Romita jr has debuted at #5. Wonder Woman seems to be holding steady as her story-line is in the final stages of a 35 issue run.
For a title some detractors claim no one wants, that does not sell well, etc it’s not doing badly, is it? Oh and Lois Lane wasn’t in this issue for the people making inaccurate claims she is why any Superman title sells. Doomed is why it and Action Comics took a leap. We’re not that naive here not to know crossovers boost sales. But generally Superman/Wonder Woman sells better than some DC and Marvel team books when it isn’t in a crossover. Note, chances are that the numbers for Doomed #1, Superman/Wonder Woman #8, Action Comics #32 from the last month would have taken an increase as those sold out. We need to see the full sales chart for June to know those re-order numbers.
But it is a great time to be a Superman/Wonder Woman fan and anyone wanting to try the book but hesitating because you’re not sure…check the reviews from the likes of proper comic sites that have a good reputation for reading and reviewing a wide variety of comics like IGN, Comicvine, Newsarama, Comicosity and CBR etc. You’ll see it is a solid book. People obviously buying it and liking it.
Q:For the new domes day story how does the order go and which comics? I have like chapter 2/3 and I don't know what the order is

*Preludes not that necessary if you not collecting those titles.Nor Superman #31 which was rather inconsequential since the Superman creative team changes with #32 and a different storyline and very easy to understand what happened as the other books tend to recap.
Comic Book Resources - PREVIEW: Action Comics #33 - Superman finally succumbs to the Doomsday virus and transforms into SUPERDOOM! Is anybody in the universe safe from his vast power and fury? How can Superman possibly find a cure for his condition when the Monster of Steel has completely taken over his mind?
From ‘Action Comics #818’ (2004/Pre-reboot) page 10. This is one of my favorites, love the way Wonder Woman took down that elemental metahuman (Volcana?) with a hit so immensely Powerful, that it sent her like a skipping stone on the water before finally fizzing-out. What an Awesome scene.
Lana: “Do you trust him?”
Lana: “Fist Bump”
“SUPERMAN: DOOMED” continues with “ENEMY OF THE STATE” as Superman struggles against the Doomsday virus – but is he losing the fight? How much longer can he stay in control? And how far will he be pushed when he’s faced with a world against him and a shocking betrayal at the end of this issue?
There’s no sugar coating it. By all accounts and on all levels, Superman is doomed. It’s surprising. It’s frightening. It’s tragic. But it’s also compelling. No one wants to see Superman brought down permanently. But as far as human drama goes, you can’t ask for a more powerful one. Here’s why.
Spoilers abound. So don’t read if you don’t want to know what’s happened so far.

Superman: Doomed #1, Action Comics #31 and Superman/Wonder Woman #8, the first three chapters of the Doomed storyline are all sold out and are getting second printings from DC Comics with recoloured covers for June 25th.

"Nothing like a strong woman. Your father liked them strong too."
Clark’s mother, Lara, is a soldier in this canon and Clark falls for a warrior. Clark’s reaction to seeing Lara in Return to Krypton and when he first sees Diana from Earth 2 is particularly interesting. And as we know when Clark meets his Diana for the first time in Justice League, he can’t take his eyes off her. Zod notes like father like son.
