Epic Endings With Wonder Woman #35 On The Wednesday Run

WW35 coverFor a myriad of reasons, it’s tough to find a great Wonder Woman comic book storyline run.

For me, the character’s greatest run might very well be the one under writer/artist George Perez in the late 1980’s.

The name Matthew K. Manning is likely not a terribly familiar name, even in pop culture circles. But allow me to let you in on a little bit of a secret – this man is fountain of comic book knowledge, much of which is currently on display in the brand new DK book, Batman: A Visual History.

The Answer Is Batman Vol. 5: Zero Year-Dark City On The Wednesday Run

Have you been watching Gotham, the new fall television show that centers around the death of an important, rich couple, the start of one good man’s policing career, and the origins of a despicable, crime-ridden city that will eventually require another man to dress as a bat, meting out vigilante justice to help keep order amidst sheer chaos?

WYTCHES 1 CoverWe’re well into one of Biff Bam Pop’s favourite months of the year, the one where the leaves start to change to orange and then blood red in colour, where the air starts to get a little more chill, and where the nights start to get a little longer and a little blacker.

Of course, lucky us, that obviously means the release of television shows and movies the fit within the suspense and horror genres.

Comic books are no different. And this week sees the release of one of the most highly anticipated new series of the year – let alone a horror title – in Wytches.

Follow me after the jump where we’ll take a look and see what’s cooking inside the couldren!
