    Default Is there a female writer out there who could be Diana's game-changer?

    The female writer who will be to Wonder Woman what Frank Miller was to Batman (THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS), and what Grant Morrison is to Superman (ALL- STAR SUPERMAN)?

    The one to write a widely acclaimed Greatest Story Ever for Diana?

    Is there a short list of qualified candidates?

    Has to be a woman who hasn't yet worked on a solo Wonder Woman story (prior JL experience is fine, per Grant Morrison's resume).

    Bonus points if she is a hybrid writer/ artist.

    Is there any lady already out in the field working who could answer this call???

    Honestly I think it may be G. Willow Wilson, what we need to find out for sure is time. If she makes it through the next 10 issues and they're better than just acceptable I say give her 30 more. Let her do for Diana what Walt Simonson did for Thor. That's IF she manages to stick the landing to this road to Themyscira story, so far so good.

    A writer who can finally deliver a story of that caliber for Diana would be great. It doesn't necessarily have to be a woman, but it would be great if it was.

    Greatest female writer she's had is still Joye Murchison. I think after that, Wilson might get the spot because Simone's run sort of fizzled out and Picoult's speaks for itself.

    To be honest I don't think a writer will really save Wonder Woman. What she needs is an editor. As it is what Wonder Woman has is a guy who half pays attention and has been editor for Wonder Woman since the start of the Azzarello era and just shrugs when any writer comes in and says they want to completly reboot the character and start from scratch.
    In an interview Perez talked about how passionate Wonder Womans editor at the time was in trying to make Wonder Woman a big success and if we could get another Karen Berger, that would really change things.

    Note that Chris Conway recently left the title for some role at Vertigo. From #69, it seems that Conway and Wielgosz are being replaced by Brian Cunningham and Brittany Holzher. Here is what Tim Hanley had to say about the switch.

    Chris Conroy and Dave Wielgosz have been editing the series for ages now, and the credits suggest it’s now passing on to Brian Cunningham and Brittany Holzher. It’s an interesting switch. On the one hand, Wonder Woman is a book that definitely benefits from a female presence in editorial, I think, and Holzher is a smart, well-respected assistant editor at DC. On the other hand, when I ran the numbers a couple years back, Cunningham hired the fewest number of female creators of any editor at DC except Eddie Berganza (who wasn’t allowed to work directly with women and has since been fired for sexual harassment). So a bit of a mixed bag here. I’ll keep an eye on things to see if there are any noticeable changes to the book once this transition is complete.
    As for a definitive and ground-breaking new take on Diana, I'm not sure it will come out of the in-continuity stories. You need a freer hand to write one such.
    «Speaking generally, it is because of the desire of the tragic poets for the marvellous that so varied and inconsistent an account of Medea has been given out» (Diodorus Siculus, The Library of History [4.56.1])
