Seriously, just put Batgirl on your pull list for a bit. Fun stuff is coming. — Gail Simone (@GailSimone) May 14, 2014
---Superman/Wonder Woman #8 I'll admit it, I've never been on the Superman bandwagon. I see tons of dudes (especially in gay porn, it seems) with the "S" emblem tattooed on their bodies and I don't get it. I mean, Clark is nice enough. He seems like a swell dude. But he's just not for me. The New 52 reboot has attempted to direct everyone's favorite Kryptonian into a more hard-lined badass, but 75 years of goody-goody can't be wiped away that easily. That being said, I have been reading the Superman/Wonder Woman series since its inception, mostly just for Diana. Her relationship with Clark is another thing that I don't really love, but I'll tolerate it. This all seems to tie into some arc called "Superman DOOMED" that I don't really care to involve myself in, but it does make for some good fodder. Kal & Diana have squared off against some big bads, notably General Zod & Faora and Doomsday himself. This issue pits an infected Superman against Wonder Woman, and it is nice to see her kicking his ass if I'm being honest. Also, there's an awesome panel where she needs Batman's assistance so she lands on the Bat-jet, mid flight. Tony Daniel's art throughout the issue and on the cover is a treat, too. If you liked Marc Silvestri but just wished he was grounded in reality as opposed to inhumanly proportioned breasts, Tony Daniel is your man.
---The Walking Dead #127 And so begins another chapter in the days of the lives of the survivors. I won't spoil too much here other than to say it's a super-sized issue and there's a time-jump. If you read the last issue you know how the "ALL OUT WAR" was resolved. This doesn't takes place the next day. It takes place a whole bunch of days after.
