Oh man Future State is turning out to be such an amazing event! Honestly, now is the perfect time to jump on one of the DC titles and Superman Wonder Woman is looking to be a series to follow.

This title has been a favorite of mine since the New 52. I love seeing Clark and Diana team up as much as the next person, but Yara and Jonathan definitely hold their own and get some great characterization in this issue. Watters includes some wonderful scenes with Jon just crushing the superhero gig, but clearly biting off more than he can chew. The highlight of this issue has to be seeing Yara serve justice in regard to Senhor Soasa’s embezzlement. I won’t spoil too much, but the irony of his punishment is all too fitting and lends to how this city views Wonder Woman.

The visuals to this book are incredible and the mythological aspects are beautifully depicted. Del Duca and Filardi create an easy to follow narrative flow by giving the book a great sense of movement with characters acting as guides. Jon and Yara are designed with a few physical and emotional tics, namely Jon talking to himself and Yara’s frustration with criminal’s foolishness. These small character choices add to their relatability and serve to establish these two as heroes of the DC Universe.

Future State Superman Wonder Woman #1 adds great depth to Yara and Jonathan’s characters and helps to further expand the worlds of Future State. Definitely give this book a read if you’ve become a fan of either character!
