DC Comics’ Wonder Woman series just picked up a new creative team. Starting with issue #31, GLAAD-award nominee James Robinson and artists Emanuela Lupacchino and Carlo Pagulayan will take over the bi-monthly comic book series for six months. Their first arc, titled “Children of the Gods,” will kick off this September with a cover by Bryan Hitch.
According to the official synopsis for “Children of the Gods,”
Spinning out of the pages of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH and JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARKSEID WAR, Robinson, Pagulayan and Lupacchino will answer one of the biggest questions of the year: Who is Wonder Woman’s brother? Taken away from Themyscira in the dead of night, the mysterious Jason (the only male ever born on the island) has been hidden somewhere far from the sight of gods and men…but his life and Wonder Woman’s are about to intersect in a terrifying way, bringing them face-to-face with a cosmic threat they never imagined!
Hitch’s cover, which can be seen below, features appearances by Darkseid’s daughter Grail and Wonder Woman’s longtime nemesis Giganta. Artist Jenny Frison will also continue to provide variant covers on the series.
Wonder Woman was relaunched as a part of DC’s Rebirth initiative, with Greg Rucka writing and artists Liam Sharp and Nicola Scott rotating art duties on the bi-weekly series. Sharp provided art for the primary storyline, “The Lies/The Truth” with Scott handling the “Year One” story arc. Sharp was included in the list of collaborators Rucka thanked in his Wonder Woman departure announcement, along with Bilquis Evely, Matthew Clark, Jodi Wynne, Romulo Fajardo Jr. and Laura Martin. Writer Shea Fontana and artists Jesús Merino and Mirka Andolfo picked up the series following the departure of Rucka, Sharp and Scott.
Robinson, Pagulayan and Lupacchino’s Wonder Woman #31 goes on sale September 27.
