    Default Next Wonder Woman Graphic Novel To Highlight Real Life Female Icons

    Borrowing the same name as the old backup feature, Wonder Women of History is curated by Laurie Halse Anderson, and brings together 18 creative teams—made up of female-identifying and nonbinary writers and artists—to highlight contemporary women from politics and activism, popular culture and sports, science and industry, and other fields that “take up Wonder Woman’s iconic mantle” as champions of noble causes. Here’s the full list of featured women, and their creative teams, announced by DC Comics today:

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - written by Lilliam Rivera and drawn by Anastasia Longoria

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg - written by Lilah Sturges and drawn by Devaki Neogi

    Elizabeth Warren - written and drawn by Renae De Liz

    Rashida Tlaib - written and drawn by Marguerite Dabaie

    Teara Fraser - written by Traci Sorell and drawn by Natasha Donovan

    Beyoncé - written by Mikki Kendall and drawn by A. D’Amico

    Edith Windsor - written by Amanda Deibert and drawn by Cat Staggs

    Marsha P. Johnson - written by Jadzia Axelrod and drawn by Michaela Washington

    Emma Gonzalez - written by Kami Garcia and drawn by Igzell

    Judith Heumann - written by Marieke Nijkamp and drawn by Ashanti Fortson

    Ellen Ochoa - written by Cecil Castellucci and drawn by Carina Guevara

    Kind of weird that, as far as I can tell, Shi Zhengli is the only non-American. I would have thought Greta Thunberg would have been a good pick if you're being more global.

    I do like that they picked modern reps instead of historical figures though.

    The graphic novel's title is "Wonder Women of History", but the description says it's highlighting contemporary women...

    I think this is a decent idea. I know books like "The good night stories for rebel girls" are very popular among girls right now; my daughter has inhaled more than one of them, and it makes sense to associate it with Diana.

    So the concept is solid, now it's all down to execution.
