With merely six weeks away from the release of their third full-length, Warp Riders (August 24th; Kemado), The Sword are finally ready to give a taste of their eagerly awaited new material. The scorching, groove-heavy number is proof that the band has successfully expanded into new territory while maintaining their cherished heaviness.  

After 2008’s “Conquer” when Max Cavalera said that the next Soulfly album is going to feature shorter, more aggressive, stripped down tracks, I was skeptical that he would be able to top that albums heaviness. Well it is 2 years later and there is no doubt in my mind that “Omen”, Soulfly’s 7th studio album, and 4th featuring the lineup of Max, guitarist Marc Rizzo, bassist Bobby Burns and drummer Joe Nunez is everything Max claimed it would be.

Writing and drawing a Wonder Woman story was almost as much fun as being eight years old and finding my mom’s silver poster board, cutting it up and turning it into a pair of bullet-proof bracelets, and then getting my kid brother to shoot at me with his plastic pellet gun.  

What an amazing week, huh folks? Not only did we hear from a legendary collection of Wonder Woman creators past and present, but we also got a bit of news as well. But more on that later today.  

The thing I love most about Wonder Woman is her roots. Raised an Amazon warrior, her very essence combines the very best of mythology and modern day heroes.  

  Wonder Woman is THE female icon of comic books and probably the most recognizable female super hero in the world. When I was a kid, I was first introduced to her by watching the Super Friends cartoons and the Linda Carter/Wonder Woman show and loved it despite all the camp.  

“George Perez would like to draw a story for Wonder Woman #600, and he wants you to write it.” What? George Perez what? He wants WHO to write it? I’ve had some amazing experiences as a writer in the time I’ve been at DC Comics, but every comic writer will tell you there’re few things as thrilling as working with an artist you’ve adored for years. Every assignment is special and important, but writing JLA for Jose Garcia Lopez, writing Superman for John Byrne, or writing a Black Canary story for Michael Golden, well, those are moments a writer lives for.  

“There’s nothing more daunting than re-designing an icon, but what was refreshing and novel in Joe Straczynski’s directive to be bold in our choices was that we were starting with no preconceptions. This was no mere tweaking, no change of half-measures like haircuts or alterations of color schemes. We decided to go for broke, take no prisoners and let me tell you—it was difficult.
