DC Comics has recruited Mariko Tamaki for one of their key flagship titles. The writer of This One Summer and Laura Dean keeps Breaking Up With Me will begin writing Wonder Woman with issue #759 in June.
“Writing for comics is pretty much a dream job, full stop,” Tamaki said. “It’s pretty fricking cool. Wonder Woman was the hero I grew up with, she was my little-kid-living-room-cosplay. I have always wanted a golden lasso and an invisible jet, and I feel like now, writing Wonder Woman, I’m one step closer.”
Tamaki will work with artist Mikel Janín, with David Marquez on covers. Here’s how DC describes the first arc:

Wonder Woman #760 will hit shelves June 24 with a cover by David Marquez and a card stock variant cover by Joshua Middleton.
