Wake to Zod.
SUPERMAN / WONDER WOMAN – Issue 6 is a HUGE issue.
It’s out Wednesday, March 12, and it’s stunningly drawn by Tony Daniel and the crew. I know everything in comics is “Big, Amazing, Don’t Miss!!!” but this really IS.
It pulls together everything from the first five issues and really, really goes out with a bang. If you haven’t picked up any issues of this series, get this one.
I feel like that once word gets out about what we actually DID in this issue, Twitter will crack, Tumblrs will tumble, Faces will Book… you know.

FROM AN OLD SCHOOL FAN OF LOIS AND STEVE TREVOR AS ROMANTIC LEADS - ONE WHO HAS MADE PEACE
Nino (email provided) submitted tohellyeahsupermanandwonderwoman:
To all the “fans” still arguing about Steve/Diana and Lois/Clark vs Wonder Woman/Superman: It is extremely difficult to find even one comic story arc that provides a nuanced, intelligent, thoughtful, subdued, mature, insightful, non-idealized, non-sentimental, non-glamorized, non-schmaltzy/non-Hollywoodized, non-cliched, honest and sincere look at romance and relationship dynamics THAT was about the Lois/Clark and/or Steve/Diana relationship. My knee jerk reaction may have been EXTREMELY NEGATIVE at first too…but the Charles Soule and Tony Daniel “Superman/Wonder Woman” book has got me EATING MY WORDS by providing the quality story we NEVER got during the Steve/Diana or Lois/Clark years (with most if not all the aforementioned traits). It’s gonna be tough to return to, let alone believe in the former status quo after seeing such boldness, depth and sincerity being put towards building and showcasing a love story between Superman and Wonder Woman. DAMN YOU CHARLES SOULE, WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SUCH A GOOD AND INSIGHTFUL WRITER?!
THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN CLARK/LOIS AND STEVE/DIANA HAVE LARGELY BEEN SHOWN TO BE BASED ON LOVE, KINSHIP, EMOTIONAL CO-DEPENDENCE, AND RESPECT FOR THEIR SIGNIFICANT OTHER’S PRIVACY/AGENCY/LIVES INDEPENDENT OF THEIRS. THE CLARK/DIANA RELATIONSHIP, AT LEAST THE WAY SOULE IS WRITING IT, SEEMS TO BE BASED ON LOVE, TRUST, MUTUAL RESPECT AND FULL IMMERSION INTO ONE ANOTHER. NOT SAYING THE LOIS/CLARK OR STEVE/DIANA RELATIONSHIPS AND STORIES ARE INHERENTLY “BETTER” OR “WORSE” THAN THE DIANA/CLARK RELATIONSHIP (THERES NO REAL WAY OR CRITERIA TO EVALUATE SUCH A THING) BUT IT WILL BE DRASTICALLY DIFFERENT AND DISTINCTIVE ON ITS OWN; AS DIFFERENT FROM PAST STORIES AS CAN BE AND THAT MAY BE WHERE THE STRENGTHS OF DCs NEW 52 LIES : PROVIDING NEW LENSES AND PRISMS FOR WHICH TO REVIEW FAMILIAR CONCEPTS. I’M NOT GONNA SAY I DON’T MISS THE OLD IDEAS AND CONCEPTS SUCH AS CLARK/LOIS, STEVE/DIANA, HELL I EVEN MISS BATMAN/VICKI VALE A LITTLE; BUT THE DEPTH, SINCERITY, NUANCE AND THOUGHTFULNESS AND JUST ALL AROUND EFFORT CHARLES SOULE (and to a lesser extent, DC, writers Geoff Johns, Scott Lobdell and even Andy Diggle) SEEM TO BE INVESTING IN THIS BLOSSOMING RELATIONSHIP AND NARRATIVE/STORY - I FIND MYSELF MISSING THE OLD LESS AND LESS. AND EVEN WHEN I DO, THOSE OLD STORIES ARE NOT ONLY STILL WIDELY AVAILABLE, BUT ARE STILL BEING PRODUCED (even if they are outside the “primary” DC universe cannon).
To those that claim the problem with this story is that: “These two are ‘gods’ who are unrelatable, putting them together makes them even more so,” THAT IS BS. What are “gods” if not myths? And myths are often metaphors. Metaphors are literally the EASIEST things to relate to. It’s about taking common thoughts, ideas, etc. and making them tangible by personifying them in the form of metaphors, myths and even “gods”. These “gods” are merely tangible representations of our everyday feelings, thoughts, ideas, - OUR SELVES but instead of a direct representation, they get played up to larger, grander, mythic scales. The core ideas within them are inherently human (perhaps humanistic) and absolutely relatable in all ways outside of scale. A power of fiction lies in its ability to explore hypotheticals of the imagination and beyond, there should really be no limits to the kind of stories out there which is an idea many comics fans can’t accept.
