Despite a report stating otherwise, a DC Comics spokesperson tells CBR there are "no current plans" for a Wonder Woman project by Frank Cho.
The fan-favorite artist, who walked away from his deal to create variant covers for "Wonder Woman" amid a purported conflict with writer Greg Rucka, was quoted this week by Italian website Fumetto Logica as saying he was in negotiations with the publisher to write and draw a miniseries starring the iconic superheroine.
"It’s almost there, pretty much," Cho said. Asked whether he was 99 percent sure the project would happen, he replied, "Yeah, I mean, let’s be honest, it’s gonna happen. You know, I have a huge fan base and I have the story already written."
Cho was originally hired to provide 24 variant covers for "Wonder Woman," relaunched as part of DC's "Rebirth" initiative, but announced in July that the sixth would be his last because of alleged attempts by Rucka to "censor" his art. “All the problem lies with Greg Rucka,” the artist said at the time. “Greg Rucka has been trying to alter and censor my artwork since day one.”
Speaking with Fumetto Logica, Cho described his Wonder Woman project as "non-stop action from start to finish." "And all these female political [agendas], I’m not even addressing that," he said. "She’s Wonder Woman, where there’s a bad guy she’s gonna fight the bad guy and beat him. That’s all it is. That’s what comic books should be."
Cho said DC wanted him back on Wonder Woman "as soon as possible, as soon as the writer is gone."
"Wonder Woman" #10, by Rucka and Nicola Scott, is on sale now.
