It’s a brand new day for Wonder Woman! Beginning this June, Mariko Tamaki (Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass, Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me) begins writing DC’s Wonder Woman!

“Writing for comics is pretty much a dream job, full stop,” says Tamaki, the Eisner Award-winning writer of This One Summer. “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.”

It all kicks off in Wonder Woman #759 on June 10, written by Tamaki with art by Mikel Janín. This first issue in Tamaki’s run will feature a cover by David Marquez and a card stock variant cover by Jim Lee and Scott Williams!

In this new story arc, Diana starts to pick up the pieces of her life following her battle with the Four Horsewomen. Man’s world has become more complicated to navigate than ever before! A familiar threat is watching Diana’s every move, and now is the perfect time to strike…

With that new beginning, Tamaki and Janín are just getting started! Their next issue, Wonder Woman #760, features the return of Maxwell Lord! Wonder Woman’s quest to bring justice to man’s world has seen her take on many devastating opponents—but none so vicious as Maxwell Lord! Max represents the worst that humanity has to offer…so when he shows up at Diana’s doorstep seeking help, what’s a warrior for the truth to do? Wonder Woman #760 will hit shelves June 24 with a cover by David Marquez and a card stock variant cover by Joshua Middleton.
