Ms. Marvel's G. Willow Wilson is Taking Over DC's Wonder Woman Ongoing Series
G. Willow Wilson impressed new and old fans alike with her work on Ms. Marvel, a very good comic book about teenage superheroes, with many calling it the second coming of Spider-Man. Now, she’s about to put her marvelous spin on a long-cherished DC icon when she takes over the Wonder Woman ongoing series later this year.
The news was announced in DC’s All Access. Wilson will be joined by artist Cary Nord this November when they debut in Wonder Woman #58. Co-Publisher Dan Didio admitted that this was a “big deal” for the company considering how acclaimed Wilson’s work has been, whether they’re creator-owned or from Marvel.
In their first arc The Just War, Wilson and Nord will have Wonder Woman encounter Ares as she tries to save Steve Trevor after his unit goes missing in a war-torn Eastern European country. Apparently, Ares has an interest in this conflict and Diana will do everything she can to change Ares’ ways.
With this new announcement, it seems like Wilson’s exclusivity with Marvel is at an end, though her Ms. Marvel work will continue. On Twitter, Wilson revealed that she hasn’t left Marvel and is still working on a number of projects for them, so fans of her work on Ms. Marvel should be happy.
Not leaving Marvel! Still have irons in the fire. https://t.co/DSWW2Sk0yS— G. will be at SDCC (@GWillowWilson) July 11, 2018
