WONDER WOMAN Comic Gets a Creative REVAMP!

Aside from her upcoming silver screen appearance, it looks like Wonder Woman will also be getting a refresh in the comic book front, as DC Comics announces that the husband and wife duo of artist David Finch and writer Meredith Finch are set to take over as the series’ new creative team this November.

This news comes after the New 52 title’s three years under Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang, who decided to have the story focus on Princess Diana’s roots in Greek mythology. The two will step down from the book with Wonder Woman issue #35 in October.

According to USA.com, the Finch’s work will present a different take on Diana, focusing instead on bringing humanity to the Amazonian princess and depicting her relationships and responsibilities – not only with the Amazons but with the Justice League as well.

Meredith Finch seems to be drawing her inspiration from Lynda Carter, star of the 1970s Wonder Woman TV series. She wishes to continue the kind of courage and heart Diana has been showing in the comics recently, since it was Carter’s pure and empowering portrayal that appealed to her in the TV show.

According to David, Meredith wants to depict Diana as someone trying to take on different things and make all of them work together. “We wanted to make her a little more flawed. She doesn’t always necessarily have the answers,” he said.

Meredith’s addition to the creative team will mark the first time since Gail Simone wrote the book that a woman will be charged with writing for the ongoing series.

“That’s one aspect of being a female writer I can bring to her. Women tend to react in a different way, and I can bring some of that reactionary (thinking), going from your heart sometimes more than from your head,” Meredith says.
