You'll Shoot  You're Eye Out Bash His Face In

Superman is still reeling from his power surge from Apollo's attack. while Wonder Woman looks for a Christmas gift for the man who has everything.  Meanwhile, Batman is trying out to be the host of Loveline, Zod is trying to get a grip on his powers and some cool members of the Justice League of America are on the business end of this awakening.

Charles Soule has made this title a must read by showing us the personal side of Superman and Wonder Woman and their burgeoning relationship.  He ups the ante in this issue by giving us a stellar supporting cast. Yes, we still get a great Wonder Woman moment while she's shopping for Superman's Christmas present, but the highlight is Batman giving Superman dating advice.  It's hilarious and touching at the same time.

Of course in a book like this, you need some action and Zod provides it in spades.  Seeing him realize his powers on Earth is great.  I give Soule credit here for pulling back and letting the art do the talking here.  We then see the extent of Zod's power when he is confronted by Steve Trevor and members of the Justice League of America.  Soule doesn't give us the whole league, just the coolest members (IMHO)!  To see what Zod can do to them is just scary.  However, the end of the book shows that their might be a more unique danger for the power couple than a disgruntled Kryptonian General.

Tony S. Daniel's art is so detailed and just awesome.  No tricks needed here.  Everything looks great and is so easy to follow that I was done the book so quick that I thought it was a twelve page issue.  I have to mention the ink work done by Batt mainly because it's so good, but also because his name is Batt.

Bits and Pieces:

Superman/Wonder Woman #3 is great.  This book has action, romance, humour and great art to boot.  Charles Soule and Tony S. Daniel have given us an early Christmas present and I'd like to thank them for that.
