Summary
"Beginning a bold new series that details the relationship between The Man of Steel and the Warrior Princess as writer Charles Soule (Swamp Thing) is joined by artist Tony S. Daniel (Batman) to tell the tale of a romance that will shake the stars themselves. These two super-beings love each other, but not everyone shares their joy. Some fear it, some test it--and some will try to kill for it. Some say love is a battlefield, but where Superman and Wonder Woman are concerned it spells Doomsday!"--

Review
  • For readers not following DC’s connected New 52 narratives, Superman and Wonder Woman have redefined “power couple.” Lois is out of the picture, and they are in love, and it’s Soule’s job to not only connect the Man of Steel’s and the Amazonian’s individual lores but also convince Lois Lane-lovers that this coupling is a match made in Elysium. Soule manages the book with craft and respect, detailing the weight each character carries managing the role of protector and the role as one of a couple. Characters regularly cross over from Superman’s world but not often from Wonder Woman’s, so it’s a rare treat to see a showdown between Superman and the god Apollo. Daniel illustrates this punchy book with skill and passion, showcasing Superman and Wonder Woman evenly in their capabilities and toughness. Fans of the Justice League, Superman Action Comics, or Brian Azzarrello’s run of Wonder Woman should commit to this book. -- Spanner, Ben (Reviewed 03-01-2015) (Booklist, vol 111, number 13)
  • Forget Lois Lane—these days, Superman only has eyes for Princess Diana of Themyscira. Writer Soule (Swamp Thing ) and artist Daniel (Detective Comics ) have taken over the romantic subplot that spun out of the Justice League series. The super couple must try to keep their relationship secret while saving the world from threats from the Phantom Zone, but their privacy comes crashing down when photos of their first kiss are leaked on the Internet—a twist somewhat prescient of the recent celebrity hacking outrage. But the focus is clearly on action, as Daniel remains DC’s go-to artist for glorious widescreen panels of superhuman punch-fests. Soule keeps things from seeming too mindless with clever dialogue (and mildly steamy PG romance) for both Clark and Diana, and adds in delicious meddling from the Greek god Apollo for a classical flourish. Letterer Carlos Mangual also deserves kudos for wrangling Soule’s sometimes overly wordy script into neat speech bubbles. The plot gets muddled and then abandoned toward the end, but that doesn’t stop the book’s first arc from being an enjoyable spandex romp. (Sept.) --Staff (Reviewed September 29, 2014) (Publishers Weekly, vol 261, issue 39, p)
