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.
