Back in December, I pointed out that the DC Comics title “Wonder Woman” was reaching it’s 750th issue. That alert was to showcase a number of the variant covers that fans of the famous Amazon can purchase and if you didn’t see that notice just click HERE. Today is the day that this issue and the variant covers hit the racks so you’re going to want to peruse them to see which ones you want. Down below I’m sharing the standard edition cover and will repeat the finer points about said issue.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Maybe it’s just me and maybe I am being a little too critical but I think that I was expecting a little bit more considering how long we’ve been hearing about the sequel to the hit “Wonder Woman” film from 2017. We’ve also been bombarded with news from the Marvel Studios side of the fence that’s only gotten fandom more and more excited about what is to come yet from the DC side they aren’t going out of their way to get us all juiced and rallying behind what is on the plan. Part of me feels if they don’t care why should I but let’s see if another few spins on said trailer make me more interested. What about you folks? Did this move you? Hopefully they will use their heads and put together a kicking 80’s soundtrack for the film. Let’s see what happens.
We received this bit of news just before “Batman Day” which is tomorrow if you haven’t already heard the news. Check this out, and bring the Justice League home with you.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Even though I greatly enjoyed the trailer than was revealed during NYCC, I am a little bit on the fence about this one. It has too much of the video game look that I hated about the action sequences in “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” and we all know full-well how that film has been received at this point. Now, the DCEU found great success with the “Wonder Woman” film earlier this year so can “Justice League” work from that momentum? I am certainly hoping so because I’d love for them to continue to build upon this universe as opposed to letting it all go. The timing of the film will not let me see it during the opening weekend and probably not until the middle of the following week so if you see it right away please don’t post any spoilers in the comments. Feel free to let us know if you had a positive or negative opinion only because that is fine. I’ll likely do a spoiler free review a few days after I finally see the film. That’s all I have for now so tell me, are you excited for “Justice League” or are you giving it a pass.
