    DC COMICS UPDATES CONTENTS FOR WONDER WOMAN #13

    DC Comics announces that the new WONDER WOMAN creative team of writer Gail Simone and artists Terry Dodson & Rachel Dodson, originally set to debut in issue #13, now will make its debut one month later, in issue #14, which will be solicited in the September Previews for November instore.

    Issue #14 will be available with a cover by Terry Dodson & Rachel Dodson and a variant cover by Michael Golden.

    Instead, WONDER WOMAN #13 (AUG070262) will feature a story by J. Torres with art by Julian Lopez (SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL) & Bit and a cover by Terry Dodson & Rachel Dodson. In this issue, the war with the Amazons may be over but the wounds haven't even begun to heal. Wonder Woman has her hands full with anti-Amazon sentiment in America, much of it targeted toward Wonder Girl! When it comes to hate and fear, even a magic lasso can only do so much!

    This issue guest-stars Wonder Girl, whose current miniseries is written by J Torres.

    “The reason we pushed back the new team's start is that Terry had a few other commitments, and we wanted to make sure we wouldn't have to interrupt his and Gail’s run with a fill-in issue,” says Senior Editor Matt Idelson.
