Fleece Me

For the most part, I've been really pleased with Sensation Comics.  While I'm a big fan of Azzarello's run on the New 52 Wonder Woman book, this is where I go each week to get my fun Wonder Woman stories.  If you need to know why, just check out this week's issue.  It's a crazy Wonder Woman/Catwoman teamup that's just a good time and looks downright adorable to boot.  It's not going to change the World, but while I read it, I had a big smile on my face and isn't that what it's all about?  Being a guy who likes to answer rhetorical questions, yes it is.

Catwoman is in swinging London and she's up to no good.  She has her sights on something in the British Museum and with the police (or Bobbies as my British mum calls them) busy, the authorities call in Wonder Woman.  While I don't understand this particular chain of command, I wouldn't change a thing.  Wonder Woman + Catwoman = Awesome.

It's obvious that Wonder Woman is pretty tired,  She's yawning all over the place, but like I always say, a tired Wonder Woman is still better than a wide awake Vibe any day.  She proves me right by stopping Catwoman, but also has to keep an eye on her for a bit.  What is a tired gal to do but go get some really, really, really strong coffee.

While waiting for the coffee, Wonder Woman finds out what Selina stole from the muesum.  It's big and fits in so well with Wonder Woman and her mythos.  The rest of the issue involves a big fight with a mythical creature and after grabbing an escaping Catwoman, some coffee.  The last panel is classic sitcom material for my new favorite odd couple.

Ollie Masters plays this issue for pure fun.  However, it's the little touches that make it so good.  Even as things get goofy, they fit securely in both Wonder Woman and Catwoman's worlds.  Sadly, this is a one-shot, but I could deal with this type of issue week in and week out.

Amy Mebberson's art is so good in a cute and adorable way.  I particularly love this Catwoman in her little leather catsuit. I hope I see her art again real soon.

Bits and Pieces:

Ollie Masters and Amy Mebberson give fans an issue that shows why we need this book.  Sensation Comics is a great outlet for these fun, little stories that are just there to entertain the reader.  The story and art here did entertain and I hope we get more of these type of stories soon and often.
