In all the uproar over DC’s relaunch, what was once a somewhat robust program for original graphic novels seems to have been lost: no talk of any more Earth One books, and Vertigo’s OGN line is limping along in purgatory.
Thus an Amazon listing for WONDER WOMAN: HAND OF THE GODS by Margaret Weis, Lizz Baldwin, Justiniano, and Walden Wong is of some interest. Weis, a bestselling fantasy author for decades, mentioned it briefly in an audio interview
Margaret Weis: Yeah. My daughter and I wrote a couple of romance novels together and we did a Wonder Woman graphic novel once.
Matthew Peterson: Ah. A Wonder Woman graphic novel, huh?
Margaret Weis: Yes. It’s currently being illustrated right now. It was really neat. We really had a great time.
While a Wonder Woman graphic novel by such a popular author sounds like a great idea, there are a couple of problems here. One is the relaunch and attendant new goals — where do OGNs even fit in any more? The other is the artist’s legal problems; in May, he was charged with possession of child pornography, which would make promoting the book a little weird.
