Wonder Woman #1; written by Allan Heinberg, art and cover by Terry Dodson and Rachel Dodson
Currently somewhere in the midst of pre-pre-production, Joss Whedon just turned in the script to the Wonder Woman feature film. Far from anything solid yet, actresses with names and histories are reportedly jumping all over trying to land the role. Probably won't happen if casting another "unknown" is in the cards.
Until the big screen, and after that little neck breaking incident
, Diana Prince makes it back from the wilds in the comics...
One year after the execution of Maxwell Lord and the earth-shattering events of INFINITE CRISIS, the DCU is still struggling to come to terms with its most powerful heroine. Is she a martyr or a murderer? A politician or a super hero?
Writer Allan Heinberg (Young Avengers, JLA, TV's The O.C. and Sex and the City) and artists Terry & Rachel Dodson (Marvel Knights: Spider-Man, Harley Quinn) provide surprising answers, giving Wonder Woman a fresh, sexy look and a bold new direction!
The series begins with the multi-part "Who Is Wonder Woman?" story arc, paying homage to the character's distinguished history while placing her firmly in the present with an all-new supporting cast, a brand-new mission, and a renewed sense of wonder.
A treat for longtime fans and a perfect jumping-on point for new readers, Wonder Woman #1 features the icon you know and love as you've never seen her before!

Seven Soldiers #0; Written by Grant Morrison, art by J.H. Williams
War in Iraq. Commercial televison. Grant Morrison. "Mystic forces are on hand," proffered one local questioned on a street corner. "We were just coming out of the solarium when these people started running all over the street," says his goggled and well-tanned companion.
As the new Grant Morrison monster project -- a project of monstrous proportions and not of monstrous inclinations (bar one actual monster in the mix) -- Seven Soldiers
starts to make DC universe waves this week, people are beginning to question the timing of events surrounding its release.
Two events in particular sparked such questioning of the world and the pinkus mucous we live in. Earlier this week, commercial network Channel Seven celebrated a win
in the ratings. A long time coming and cautiously unexpected on their part. Past surveys often showing the ribbon laced network to cling desperately onto the third spot behind Nine and Ten respectively.
As the bubbles on the cask wine settled down, Prime Minister John Howard revealed news harder to swallow than a shredded golf ball. That the government had declared a rejuventation of troops into the never-ending war
in Iraq. Australian forces would be staying on and keeping the peace with their peices that much longer.
(Incidentally it was recently announced at the Joss Whedon panel of Wonder Con 2005
that both he and artist John Cassaday
would be staying on for a further 12 issues of Astonishing X-Men
With both the mark of Seven and the soldiers making the national press, their connection is most likely as a result of coincidental overlap or a stark misreading of headlines fed through a shredder as authorities bear down, cuffs and court orders in hand. "These marketing people have taken it to another level," remarked a businessman clutching a one kilo tub of yoghurt. "It makes the brain spasm, doesn't it?"
As the tag line for the new DC series of miniseries warns: "The end of history is on its way, and nothing will survive the catastrophe..."
