Shea Fontana, creator of the YouTube program DC Super Hero Girls, is taking over Wonder Woman after Greg Rucka announced his departure yesterday. Fontana has signed on for five issues of the twice-monthly shipping title, meaning she's only set to write from July to September. She'll start with #26, where she'll introduce a new villain to the DC Universe.
"Having worked on DC Super Hero Girls for the last few years, I have a great sense of Wondy, a teenage Wonder Woman in a high school setting, and it's an honor and an adrenaline rush to be writing her now 'all grown up,'" Fontana said in a statement from the publisher. "Many of her core characteristics continue to remain routed in peace, justice and equality, but as an adult she's seen a lot more war and tragedy, and is dealing with her world from a wiser, more experienced point of view."
Joining Fontana on her first two issues will be artist Mirka Andolfo, who previously worked on DC Comics: Bombshells. Issue 26 is set to release July 12 and issue 27 is set to release July 26.
