On June 15th, Bleeding Cool ran the word that Ms. Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson was to write the Wonder Woman comic book for DC Comics.
I have been told that G. Willow Wilson has told people that she still owes her DC editors a project. Wilson, now well known as the writer and co-creator of Kamal Khan, Ms. Marvel, first started writing comics for DC back in 2007 with the graphic novel Cairo. She wrote a little for the DC Universe, as well as the Vertigo series Air, and for the AIT/Planet Lar revival of the Negative Burn anthology before co-creating the new Ms. Marvel for Marvel.
And I am told that this project will be the Wonder Woman series. Currently, the comic book has been a bit in the doldrums despite the success of the movie and news on the sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, hitting the headlines.
That all just got confirmed…. coming in December.
Friends…starting this December, we are going to Themyscira. Thrilled to be taking over writing duties for such an iconic character. pic.twitter.com/1sdY0qnXhN
