Tamaki To Write ‘Wonder Woman’ Starting In June

Wonder Woman will get a new writer starting this June: Mariko Tamaki. The writer will take the reigns from current writer Steve Orlando, starting with issue #759. Tamaki has written for Wonder Woman before (one story in the title’s issue #750 celebration) and has written comics for both DC (Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass) and Marvel (2016’s Hulk and 2018’s X-23).

Wonder Woman #759 will ship on June 10 with art by Mikel Janin and cover by David Marquez. Jim Lee and Scott Williams will also provide a variant card stock cover. Issue #759 features Wonder Woman:

“… starts to pick up the pieces of her life following her battle with the Four Horsewomen. Man’s world has become more complicated to navigate than ever before! A familiar threat is watching Diana’s every move, and now is the perfect time to strike…”

Issue #760 will have a variant card stock cover by Joshua Middleton and ships on June 24. This issue has:

“… the return of Maxwell Lord! Wonder Woman’s quest to bring justice to man’s world has seen her take on many devastating opponents—but none so vicious as Maxwell Lord! Max represents the worst that humanity has to offer…so when he shows up at Diana’s doorstep seeking help, what’s a warrior for the truth to do?”

Tamaki is apparently excited to be writing Wonder Woman:

“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.”
