I assume “Superman: The Coming of the Supermen” is a non-New 52-set story about a non-New 52 Superman, and thus why it’s on the list. The Kandorians helping Supes, from the cover, are two blonde-haired guys and one Black guy. No Kandorian women are mentioned, but the solicit does mention Lois helping.

On the trade paperback side, “Wonder Woman: Earth One” is finally due to appear. Grant Morrison’s writing it, so your guess is as good as mine what to expect. I just hope the Amazons aren’t as bloodthirsty, sexist, and straw feminist as the New 52 versions.

There’s also trade paperbacks reprinting a George Perez Wonder Woman storyline, the one-shot Bat-Mite/Mr. Mxyzptlk special “World’s Funnest,” and the initial issues of “Bombshells” and “Starfire.” Presumably the fairly heavy Wonder Woman emphasis this month is timed for her appearance in March’s “Batman V Superman.”
