DC is finally recognizing the marketablity of their most well-known female character with... a digital first series. Well, it's better than nothing!
In the pre-solicits DC sends out to all the big comic book websites before sending out their full solicits, DC revealed that Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman will launch in August, with the first story written by Gail Simone and illustrated by Ethan Van Sciver, both creators that are nice to us yet haven't been fired by DC (well, this week at least), a testament to their talent, power, and influence. More creators will contribute to the title in the coming months, though we're not sure whether each story will run a single issue or multiple issue arcs. Some more of the creators being teased: Lauren Beukes, Cecil Castellucci, Amanda Deibert, Caitlin Kittredge, James Tynion IV, Georges Jeanty, Chris Sprouse, and Cat Staggs.
Here's the solicitation, which seems to indicate the book is set in the Old DC Universe, as it references Oracle:
