Report: Husband And Wife Team To Take Over WONDER WOMAN Monthly Series
It looks as if Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang‘s amazing run on Wonder Woman is coming to an end. The pair has been on the book from all the way back when DC relaunched their characters in the New 52. Not only have they been the primary handler of The Amazon Princess, but they have received many, well deserved, awards and accolades with their amazing stories and great art.
But like stated above all good things must come to an end and Azzarello and Chiang will call it a day on Wonder Woman. So who is going to replace the famed duo? You need not look far as DC is staying, at least in the art department, with one of their most consistent artists to take over the book, David Finch.
Currently Finch is finishing up his run on Forever Evil, and has done some work on the Batman book, The Dark Knight. He is no stranger when it comes to Wonder Woman though, he worked with Geoff Johns on Justice League, and even featured Diana front and center on the Justice League #1 variant he did.
So who will be taking this voyage with Finch as he sets his sights on Wonder Woman? Another major name at DC? The answer is no. As a matter of fact he gets a new up an coming writer that he know surprisingly well. According to Bleeding Cool, Finch’s wife Meridith will take over writing duties on the monthly series.
Meridith Finch isn’t new to the world of comics, however she is relatively new to writing them. Along with breaking into the business of writing comics she is David’s agent and manager. She is currently writing Tales Of Oz for Zenescope at the moment, so Wonder Woman will be a pretty major step up for her.
Bleeding Cool is speculating that DC maybe looking to venture a little further away from the the Gods and goddesses stories and sync her more inline with how she is in the Justice League book. They also say it is a move to put Wonder Woman more inline with the movie version of the character. No details have been released as to what the stories will consist of or how different the character will be, but make sure to check back here at Comic Book Therapy as we will keep you up to date on the latest.
