Greg Rucka’s time with the Amazon Warrior Princess is coming to a close again. Taking his place will be Shea Fontana, most recently known for writing the DC Super Hero Girls comics.
Ruck announced his departure from the comic book series on his personal Tumblr account yesterday. Today, he confirmed on The Hollywood Reporter that Fontana — who not only writes for the animated, female-focused series DC Superhero Girls, but its accompanying graphic novels and comics — will take over after Wonder Woman #25. She’ll continue on as Wonder Woman’s writer in her twice-monthly series with Mirka Andolfo on art for the first two issues.
It’s unknown if Fontana will continue writing for the main comic book series beyond her contracted five issues, but she has at least confirmed that she will still work on DC Superhero Girls while writing for Wonder Woman.
And no worries about #DCSuperHeroGirls — I’m still writing that too! 🙂

Rucka will end his run, in which he has re-tweaked and explored Diana’s origin in DC Comics’ Rebirth initiative, hopefully tying together all the reasons why Diana’s story has been altered again.
