Not only do we get a new writer on Wonder Woman in Mariko Tamaki, we also get new artist Mikel Janin too. It’s not the only news either as it seems Maxwell Lord makes a drastic comeback too. He’ll also have a pretty big part to play in this year’s Wonder Woman 1984 film, so it’s a no-brainer to include him in Tamaki’s first story-arc.
Breaking the news on The Hollywood Reporter, Mariko confided in them that this was a dream gig:
Writing for comics is pretty much a dream job full stop. It’s pretty fricking cool. Wonder Woman was the hero I grew up with, she was my little-kid-living-room cosplay. I have always wanted a golden lasso and an invisible jet and I feel like now, writing Wonder Woman, I’m one step closer.”
Wonder Woman #759 is out June 10th with Wonder Woman #760 following on June 24th from DC Comics.
