Wonder Woman is getting her own deluxe oversized anthology comics, DC announced this morning. Wonder Woman #750 will hit shops on January 22, 2020 with stories by Greg Rucka, Gail Simone, Vita Ayala, Marguerite Bennett, Jeff Loveness, and current Wonder Woman writer Steve Orlando. New writers to the Amazon beat include Kami Garcia (Teen Titans: Raven, Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity), Shannon and Dean Hale (the upcoming Diana: Princess of the Amazons), and Mariko Tamaki (Supergirl: Being Super, Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass).
Artists include a cover by Catwoman writer/artist Joëlle Jones with Wonder Woman in the famed “Atlas” pose with the weight of the world on her shoulders, and interior pages from Colleen Doran, Jesus Merino, Wonder Woman Rebirth’s Nicola Scott, Elena Casagrande, and Gabriel Picolo.
More artists will be announced soon, with hopefully even more women creators.
And of course there shall be variants! A series of covers will look at Princess Diana from her various eras — and they better not leave out the jumpsuit! The line-up includes:
1940s variant cover by Joshua Middleton
1950s variant cover by Jenny Frison
1960s variant cover by J. Scott Campbell
1970s variant cover by Olivier Coipel
1980s variant cover by George Pérez
1990s variant cover by Brian Bolland
2000s variant cover by Adam Hughes
2010s variant cover by Jim Lee and Scott Williams
One female cover artist out of 8 — hmmmmmm.
Past galas issues Action #1000 and Detective #800 were huge sellers for DC, so it’s only natural that Wonder Woman get the same treatment. Plus, Wonder Woman 1984, the sequel to the immensely popular Wonder Woman film, will be hitting theaters in June, making 2020 a huge year for the franchise.
Wonder Woman #750 will be a 96-page prestige format one-shot comic book, debuting in comic book stores and participating online retailers January 22, 2020, for $9.99. Ask for it wherever fine comics are sold.
