    A second ongoing written by him, is all I ask!
    He could explore short adventures although related to the main series, but where stories with his enemies and the wonder family are seen.
    We ask too much of Cloonrad for a monthly series, we need more!

    That's an interesting thought

    We sure wonderfans allways ask A LOT of Wobdy writers to do, while they are only writing one series at the same time. It's a little unfaur, there's only room for few little options on 20 monthly pages...

    Great interview, I love Steve Orlando. I'm gutted that his WW was cut so short. The Four Horsewomen arc was fierce.

    He told me he had to literally fight for everything that he could to get to tell the stories he wanted.

    He had to fight to tell the depowered memory loss WW arc? With how many arcs like that we have had, i would never think that DC could oppose.

    I hope he gets to write more with Diana and Artemis some day, he really had a great handle on the two.

    I really enjoyed his run and wish it hadn't obviously been cut short to make room for a editorially mandated Maxwell Lord heavy run to tie in with the movie. Loved seeing him revamp Paula, bringing back Deva, and creating a legacy version of Armageddon. And he finally fixed Donna's origin more less, returning her to being Diana's younger adopted sister, and I pray DC is at least sensible enough to keep his work on fixing Donna, and not throw it out for no good reason.

    Though the interview doesn't really offer too much insight on his run, just briefly reminiscing fondly about the Artemis/Bana arc and the teen Maxima standalone issue. I would have liked to hear more about his version of Donna's origin, since there were some questions/holes left open, or whatever Genocide's new backstory was, since trying to fit the Simone run into the current continuity seems hard to say the least. Still it's nice hearing he enjoyed working on the book, and maybe he'll be allowed to return again someday to explore some more of his ideas.

    Unfortunately he didn’t want to delve too much into his time with DC, and the issues he had with editorial. So we focused more on his current work, and the queer coding in comics.

    They are talking about Orlando not CloonRad.
