    As an adult woman, Diana is naturally going to be more restrained than the teenage Ms. Marvel (or one would hope), whom Wilson was comparing her to.

    Dispassionate doesn't really fit what we've seen even in the first three issues, so I don't think Diana will suddenly be morose in the issues after Wilson said she started to get more comfortable.

    Interview with the Fangrrls part of Syfywire with G Willow Wilson about writing Wonder Woman and other comics. Sadly, the interview was rather short and general.

    I think the pressure when you have something new, is to get it exactly right, to create a tone and a point of view that is very strong, and recognizable. Whereas when you’re inheriting a character who has tons of history, it’s more a question of, well, what stories are left to tell? What has not been said yet about this character, when so many legendary comic writers and artists have already worked on her? So I think it’s a very different kind of challenge.

    This part right here is evience of the prpblem WW has. "A lot of different people have interpreted and reinterpreted her story over the course of those 75 years" At this point it shoyld be mandatory to respect the basics. To build upon the things that are already there, instead of reimagine her story over and over again.

    G Willow Wilson and Xermanico discuss Atlantiades on twitter.

    Also fascinating is that some of the oldest accounts of the Atlantiades myth claim that they were born with both male and female characteristics, rather than born male and fused with a nymph, which is a much later invention (by Ovid, who loved drama...)

    I would be fine if it was Maggie and the entire Zoo Crew. Not a fan of their constant silliness.

    If it's her. gww will probably make sure that has more of an impsct on WW verse than WW herself.

    Is there any chance that gww will leave the book before the end of this year? There must be a small hope to get one writer that cares about WW and her verse more than characters of his/her own creation. A writer that can show us Diana being competent enough to end one big battle on her own, and show she is a powerhouse.

    Some new twitterings from G Willow Wilson:



    Wonder Woman #75 is out of control

    This beast is *thirty eight* pages long and contains more double-page spreads than I have ever written into a comic book script, or ever expect to write into a comic book script again.

    This page is by Vincente Cifuentes, but there are a bunch of guest artists as well...even if you haven't been following Wonder Woman, you want this issue.

    Q: What are those lines for?

    A: Formatting. This is from a lettering draft.

    Well, I might just have to pick that issue up.
