I'm kind of blissed out. Just found out Gail Simone has officially been named the new Wonder Woman writer. Yay! Goodness knows Diana needs a good writer. Somebody save her from bad writing, please!

GS: I had a direction and definite ideas about her character, but I think it’s very important not to give readers whiplash, or New Direction Fever, as it’s commonly called. I want people to be able to understand by page three of our issues who Wonder Woman really is, but there are echoes of all the great work that came before, in the background, as well.
Of course, since she’s punching a monkey off a waterfall on page three, maybe that’s not the best example.
On second thought, no, it definitely is.
NRAMA: Monkey off a waterfall?
GS: Monkey off a waterfall.
NRAMA: You’re going to get letters.
GS: Bring ‘em.
