I’m delighted to be writing such an iconic character as Wonder Woman and to be working with DC once again, with more than 75 years of history, Wonder Woman has a wealth of backstory and drama to draw from, and I look forward to putting a spin on Diana and her supporting cast that’’ both new, yet familiar. It’ll be a challenge to do her justice, but I like a challenge and can’t wait to get started. – G. Willow Wilson
