Here’s Why Liam Sharp Is Not In Today’s Wonder Woman Annual

s-l1600-4

Liam Sharp was meant to draw a story in today’s Wonder Woman Annual.

It was meant to follow Nicola Scott‘s final story, also in Wonder Woman Annual #1. And the solicit from DC Comics never changed on their site.

The world of the Amazing Amazon expands in a collection of short stories that take Wonder Woman around the globe! In the days after “Year One,” Diana comes face-to-face with Superman and Batman for the first time, as illustrated by “Year One” artist Nicola Scott…and years later, Liam Sharp brings you the story of how their friendship has evolved!

But in reality… things did. From Diamond’s site…

WONDER WOMAN ANNUAL #1 will feature four tales by a variety of artists and writers including the team behind “Year One”!

First, in the days after “Year One,” Diana comes face to face with Superman and Batman for the first time in a story by writer Greg Rucka and artist Nicola Scott.

Then, Wonder Woman has to go to the nation of Markovia and stop King Shark from being executed for a crime he did not commit in a story by writer Vita Ayala and artist Claire Roe.

In the third story, an old ally of Steve Trevor’s has summoned Wonder Woman to his village to save it from his cursed monster form. This story is written by Michael Moreci with art by Stephanie Hans.

And in this annual’s final tale, Wonder Woman assists A.R.G.U.S in bringing down a large Kaiju monster that’s on its way to the American coastline but will Wonder Woman change alliances once the monster starts speaking a language she understands? This story is written by Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing with art by David Lafuente

So what happened? Liam Sharp explained all.

 

So looks like you will be getting him back for one last issue – or for at least half of it, with Greg Rucka and Bilquis Evely.
