The news was broken Thursday night on Twitter by writer/artist Renae De Liz, who wrote, “I am sad to announce Legend of Wonder Woman pt 2 has been cancelled. I am surprised & devastated I won’t be able to finish the project. I am very grateful to DC for the opportunity to work with such an iconic character over the last few years, that was a joy like none other.”
When contacted by CBR, DC Comics had no comment.
A new take on the iconic superheroine’s 75-year-old origin story, “The Legend of Wonder Woman” debuted online as part of the DC Digital initiative before being serialized in print as a nine-issue miniseries. The critically acclaimed title was nominated for an Eisner Award, with De Liz happily announcing in May that a second volume had been greenlit.
But nearly seven months later, the publisher apparently changed course. Amid sharing art for the now-abandoned volume, De Liz wrote, “I am so sorry to fans of LoWW, as the story is left unfinished, and there were so many fun adventure to be told.” She later added, “Also, no, sales wasn’t the reason. Last I heard the hardcover was looking to do optimistically well.”
De Liz noted, however, that her primary concern “is how to support my family through Xmas w/ the sudden loss of finances being I have 3 kids & just found out 1 is on the way.” In response to requests from fans wishing to help, she and her husband, series colorist Ray Dillon, have set up a GoFundMe page.
