Q:Hello. I know this may be a bit much to ask, but do you know the order of comic titles/issues that Doomed is being released in? If so, could you list them? (E.g. "1-Superman/Wonder Woman Annual, 2-Action Comics Issue 30, 3-Superman Issue something") I'm new to the comic book world and wanna follow the Doomed event, but the timeline stretching between the different books is seriously confusing.
It can be a bit confusing with all the tie ins. But just remember there is the Doomed Event itself and the aftermath, called “Enemy of the State” which does continue on in Superman, Action Comics and Superman/Wonder Woman.
We will try our best to see if we can list the reading order. For those who might want to know a little more about Doomsday, he debuted in Batman/Superman #3.1 Doomsday of Villains’ Month, and brief appearances in Superman/Wonder Woman #1 and #2.
Here is the reading order for Doomed so far and aftermath, Enemy of the State.
1. Action Comics #30 (April 2)
2. Superman/Wonder Woman #7 (April 9)
3. Superman #30 (April 23)
4. Doomed #1 (May 7)
5.Action Comics #31 (May 7)
6.Superman/Wonder Woman #8 (May 14)
7. Superman #31 (May 28)
8. Action Comics #32 (June 4)
9.Superman/Wonder Woman #9 (June 11)
10.Action Comics #33 (July 2)
11.Superman/Wonder Woman #10 (July 9)
12. Superman/Wonder Woman Annual #1 (July 30)
13. Action Comics Annual #3 (July 30)
No doubt with August Solicitations we will be able to update the reading list.
Hope this helps and remember to pre-order from your comicshops or check out comixology/amazon on the release dates.
Superman/Wonder Woman #7 Review by The Brotherhood of Gaming
"Anytime Clark and Diana are together…it really stating to feel like a real relationship"
Review Starts at 9:23
Soule Looks to Subvert Expectations with Superman: Doomed - Charles Soule discusses his DC Comics slate, and how his current busy comic book writing schedule is literally a dream come true.
Let’s get into the books, starting with “Superman/Wonder Woman” — it was clear that some people had a distinct perception of that series before it even came out. Now that the actual work has come out, that notion has seemed to dissolve. How annoyed were you at that initial reaction, and do you think it’s been satisfactorily overcome?
I don’t think that’s a “Superman/Wonder Woman” [thing]. I think whenever you have a new title announced that’s something different that people haven’t seen before, they like to put things in boxes, so they’re like, “This is probably going to be this,” and then people start talking about it that way. People like to talk about things. “Superman/Wonder Woman,” people expected I guess a lot of romance, or maybe something that wasn’t emotionally deep. Who knows?
Ultimately, it doesn’t really matter, because the book is what the book is — which is a huge superhero epic action book that happens to have a strong relationship at its core, between two of the coolest characters in the DC Universe. That’s what it is, everybody knows what it is now, and it’s going to stay in that vein. I’m very happy with the way the book’s come together. This whole weekend, people have been coming up to my booth, being thrilled.
Those are two of the biggest characters in any type of fiction, being presented in a slightly different context, since there is the romance element, which hasn’t really been there before. How much do you enjoy that blend of something that is so established, but in a way that people haven’t seen?
I love it. Honestly, that is one of the things that attracted me to this project in the first place, because it was a chance to do something new with characters that everything has been done with, and that does not come along very often. So I jumped on it the minute it was offered. I feel like it’s a responsibility, and it’s something that I spend a lot of time trying to get right. I obsess over it in a way that I don’t obsess over some of the other books, but hopefully that shows in the scripts and the finished product.
Doomsday has been a part of the book since the beginning, and things are now moving to the “Superman: Doomed” crossover. What interested you about Doomsday, and were you reading DC Comics during the original “Death of Superman” back in 1992?
Yes, I was, and that was one of the first big crossover events that really grabbed me as a kid. As far as Doomsday now, it’s been more than 20 years since that happened, so this is a chance to take that storyline and subvert people’s expectations of it a little bit. It’s kind of like “Superman/Wonder Woman” itself — people think it’s going to be X, and we’re going to do Y, Z, A, B, C, 1, 2, 3 — a whole bunch of different things that they’re not necessarily expecting to happen. Which is fun. It’s part of the process of working on a big event like that. I’m working on it with Greg Pak and Scott Lobdell, and we’ve really come up with some cool stuff.

Superman and Wonder Woman: Until Death Do They Part
Superman and Wonder Woman have been on a romantic journey since before they first kissed in the pages of Justice League. From the moment they met, the hints of an attraction between the two existed. That attraction evolved into something greater over the course of two years.
Wonder Woman was raised as a warrior and sentiment sometimes gets lost on her. She wasn’t receptive to the idea of being in a relationship at first, not willing to give her heart away a second time.
On the other hand, Superman had spent much of his early days, in the New 52, longing for his friend Lois Lane. After ‘the kiss’, he wanted to explore it more. He wanted to talk about it and what it meant.
It was touch and go in the beginning but eventually Superman and Wonder Woman opened up to the idea that a relationship was worth giving a try. In the early stages of their relationship, they were having fun. Carefree lovers enjoying each other’s company as they spent time together alone and in the field.
While they were busy finding their way with each other and learning about themselves and where they fit into one another’s lives, dangers continued to threaten them and the people they care about. When Zod and Faora appeared, with a plan to release the Warworld from the confines of the Phantom Zone, Superman and Wonder Woman were facing a critical juncture in their relationship.
Wonder Woman was confused about the feelings she had. Superman was confused about how their relationship affected their ability to protect the world. Needing to set their own struggles aside to deal with Zod and Faora, the two of them worked together as an unstoppable force to defeat the Phantom Zone escapees.
Until a jealous and pride-wounded Apollo found his time to take exact revenge on his sister’s boyfriend. Injecting the two villainous Kryptonians with powerful beams of sunlight, he watched with joy as Superman and Wonder Woman were quickly dispatched and thrown in a proverbial atomic garbage can.
Down but not out, the two lovers conjured up a plan that could both stop their rivals but also alert the Justice League. It was a risk that could take the lives of both of them. Bound by their love for each other, it was a risk they were willing to take because there’s no place in the universe they’d rather be in what could potentially be their swan song.
At each other’s side.
When death stares you in the face, you tend to see things more clearly. Both Superman and Wonder Woman realized that perhaps there’s more to being partners than just dating An admission of love before splitting an atom, setting off an explosive finale to this couple’s journey. In in their final moments, Superman did what any loving man would do for the woman he cares so deeply for: protected her.
We all know that Wonder Woman needs protection from no man, woman or God but the act in of itself is who Superman is. No matter the odds, until his dying breath he will fight to protect those around him.
Love is both his greatest strength and glaring weakness.
Wrapping Wonder Woman up in his cape and holding her tightly to his body at the epicenter of an atomic explosion epitomizes the Romeo and Juliet nature of their journey. A seemingly tragic end to the exploration of a once forbidden romance.
And out of the ashes we have learned that Superman and Wonder Woman love each other, until death do they part.
Q:Do you ship anyone else in the comic book universe? or does this take up all your time?
We are exclusive to Superman and Wonder Woman here and yes it can take up quite a bit of time when you have to juggle real life, which has to take the priority over a hobby. But we love some Batman/Catwoman action too in this verse. I myself am partial to power couples be it a meta one like Clark and Diana or street level one like Bruce and Selina. I just think they are more dynamic and interesting when a pairing can share the action together via their heroics and even pit their abilities against each other and or watch each other’s back. Then seeing them in their down time together can be just as interesting.
But to be totally honest, I don’t think I would be interested in shipping anyone in terms of blogging nor buying comics were it not for Superman/Wonder Woman.
#Superman #WonderWoman #Kiss
Justice League War
Got it…..loved it and will buy the DVD as well. An excellent intro to the new 52. There’s action, a little bit of drama, and a little bit of romance (just flirting). To me it was the total package so much that even my wife watched it entirely and was supportive of the Power Couple’s interaction. Here’s hoping we get more onscreen in the near future.
For those interested in the Superman/Wonder Woman ongoing series you can jump on board easily. Issues #1-4 are out and can be bought online still from Midtown comics or Things From Another World or digital download from comixology.
Issues #5 and #6 coming in February and March are looking badass!
