Wonder Woman Vs. Doomsday

"Wonder Woman Vs. Doomsday" from Superman/Wonder Woman #1 (DC, 2013) by Charles Soule, Tony Daniel and Matt Banning
Is this a scene from the upcoming DC film? I'm not a fan of the Superman-Wonder Woman relationship, but I still really wanted to like this series because I AM a fan of Soule's work. The action beats work, and Soule is the first writer to use the characters from Azzarello's Wonder Woman series (to date, practically a world isolated from the rest of the New52), but the relationship stuff just doesn't work. Pretty art, but way too splash-happy (despite this blog's focus, I'd rather comics not be one splash after another). I won't be getting the third issue.

  1. Man, the lettering really wrecks the scene...

  2. Hahaha. Aw man, yeah. But crucial piece of dialog.

  3. I'm with you, Siskoid. I like Soule, and I rather liked him actually including Azzarello's characters, but Superman and Wonder Woman together are just awful.
