The Amazing Amazon’s big year continues to unfold. We saw the 750th issue of her title. Wonder Woman 1984 arrives in theaters in June. Now comes news that bestselling author Mariko Tamaki will be joining artist Mikel Janin on the monthly series beginning with June’s #759. While Tamaki contributed a story to Wonder Woman #750, her biggest DC projects before this have been Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass and Supergirl: Being Super.
Here’s DC’s announcement:
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER MARIKO TAMAKI JOINS WONDER WOMAN AS SERIES WRITER!
It’s a brand new day for Wonder Woman! Beginning this June, Mariko Tamaki (Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass, Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me) begins writing DC’s Wonder Woman!
“Writing for comics is pretty much a dream job, full stop,” says Tamaki, the Eisner Award-winning writer of This One Summer. “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.”
It all kicks off in Wonder Woman #759 on June 10, written by Tamaki with art by Mikel Janín. This first issue in Tamaki’s run will feature a cover by David Marquez and acard stock variant cover by Jim Lee and Scott Williams!
