    I initially thought he was confirmed on for long term but it looks like that’s not true. Orlando said on Twitter that he hopes he’ll be on for longer than solicited. My guess? They’re going to let him do an arc and see how people respond. If people like him he’ll get the book long-term.

    Wilson tweeted that this would be his first arc, so I'm hoping there will be more.

    He should stick around. There aren't any huge names sniffing for the job that we can see, and he has a clear love for the character and her world. And hasn't told a bad story yet with her (though some were better than others).

    EDIT: Just saw Vordan's post, I hope it turns longer.

    Wonder Woman needs a 'Jason Aaron' to lead her franchise.

    In the sense of a big, visionary, writer...I agree.

I was rather hoping that she would pull Donna Troy into the main WW book after she said in an article that she was very open to it but, looks like we'll get another writer so she'll be wrapping up her storylines instead. My hopes is that with another writer we don't get the status quo of: developing a new supporting cast in favor of established characters and they include fan favorite characters such as Donna Troy, Artemis, Cassie, Steve, Etta, and some island-based Amazons like Antiope, Hippolyta, Philippus, etc.
    Hmm...she only came on board since Nov 2018? That's a bit disappointing.

    It felt like Wilson had been on the book for a while and yet it didn't feel like much happened in the books. It was a weird mishmash of things that weren't helped by the constant shuffling of artists.

    While I haven't been overly enthused with stories, I had hoped GWW would stay on to execute a longer vision for WW's adventures.

    I've really enjoyed Orlando's first arc and guest issues on Wonder Woman. Similarly, I thought his Midnighter and Midnighter and Apollo runs were fantastic. That said, I did not like his Justice League of America.

    But glad to have a writer who's interested and open to using WW's rogues gallery. I used to think he used them because no one would and it wouldn't ruffle feathers. Hopefully, it's because he genuinely likes them.

    If anyone would attempt a Villainy Inc. revival with the original roster it's Orlando. At the very least, I hope he brings back Queen Clea in a big way.

    While something like that would be great, it doesn't feel like the title is that sort of a priority at DC.

    They will likely try to push WW once the WW1984 movie comes out. But yes if it’s not a Batman, Superman, Flash, or JL title, DC doesn’t really care. But right now I just want some WW stories with her non-god Rogues. Tynion is treating Circe right over in JLD, Cheetah has a big arc coming up, but I want to know what happened to Dr. Cyber? Colonel Poison? Where the heck is Psycho and what is he up to? Orlando is a continuity nut, he’d probably love to tackle those villains. And really who else is an option? Didio and Lee can’t even get Hickman, a guy who talks about how he was a DC kid at his freaking X-Men panel, to join up. No way can those two get any outside talent to join, and no one else who is decent at DC can do it. So Orlando right now has done a good job on his fill in issues, I’m willing to give him a chance. I don’t expect him to be any worse than mediocre which is really no different than what we’ve had under Wilson.

    I had already decided I was dropping Wonder Woman but with Steve Orlando coming on board (at least for a few issues) I'll stick around for a bit longer. I was very disappointed with G.Willow's run.
    Please Remain Calm

    It would also require DC to embrance and own the Greek Pantheon and mythos, something that they have never really done, even in the latest years where the Gods are so presents. Obviously, Diana being an Amazon and nothing like what we "knew" of them in the Greek myths and legends means that it is harder to craft a whole Olympus similar to Asgard.

    Marvel's Thor and the mythos around him have even less to do with Norse mythology than WW does with Greek myth.

    You're right. One great thing GWW did besides the return of Themyscira was the return of Amazons like Nubia and Antiope as well as small snippets of Amazon history, which fleshes out the locale and provides new story potential. Hopefully Orlando can use her set-up to broaden the mythos half as much as Aaron did Thor's.

    The Amazons don't live on Olympus, so that has nothing to do with how Olympus is crafted.

    Also, the recent take that made the Amazons similar to their selves in the Greek myths and legends didn't exactly spread that same accuracy to the Olympians.

    This. Loki is Odin’s Brother in the myths not Thor’s. Thor is red-haired, married, and has two sons in the myths. Aaron’s Thor specifically has nothing whatsoever to do with the myths, Thor is Thor’s name not a title handed out to whoever can wield Mjolner. Accuracy to the myths counts for nothing in comic books.
