This Comes As A Surprise To Virtually No One

Thought we'd end our week here at 2GBC with a happy note:

In accordance with the prophecies, Gail Simone will be the next regular writer on Wonder Woman. Upon reading this, I immediately thought three things:

1) I will in fact be subscribing to WW when Gail takes the reigns, and if you thought otherwise then you haven't been paying attention.

-------------------------------

2) The following exchange from the Newsarama interview made me want to send Gail lots of presents, but not in the creepy online stalker-ish kind of way:

GS: Of course, since she’s punching a monkey off a waterfall on page three, maybe that’s not the best example.

On second thought, no, it definitely is.

NRAMA: Monkey off a waterfall?

GS: Monkey off a waterfall.

NRAMA: You’re going to get letters.

GS: Bring ‘em.

Don't you just want to hug her?

--------------------------------------------

3) This announcement kind of renders the next 8 or so issues of WW even less relevant than before, no? Did DC just unintentionally torpedo sales for the next 8 months? (Insert joke about Wonder Woman lateness/quality here.)

--------------------------------------------

Anyhoo, the lesson, as always: Gail Simone rocks.

Part of me thinks that DC are just being lazy by assigning a female writer to a female character, but...

Simone is an excellent writer and she can't do any worse than everyone else has for years on this book.
