Shea Fontana is taking over the on-going Wonder Woman title at DC Comics this July following a critically acclaimed run from Greg Rucka, Liam Sharp, Nicola Scott and Bilquis Evily.
Known for her work on the DC Super Hero Girls, Fontana will write five issues of the twice-monthly series beginning with Wonder Woman
"Having worked on DC Super Hero Girls for the last few years, I have a great sense of Wondy, a teenage Wonder Woman in a high school setting, and it's an honor and an adrenaline rush to be writing her now 'all grown up,'" Fontana said in a statement. "Many of her core characteristics continue to remain routed in peace, justice and equality, but as an adult she’s seen a lot more war and tragedy, and is dealing with her world from a wiser, more experienced point of view."
Mirka Andolfo, known for his work on the DC Comics: Bombshells series, will provide the art for Fontana's first two issues.
Announcing his departure from the series Wednesday, Mr. Rucka wrote that his final issue will "set a table for who is to follow, and provide for them as much room to work and explore and grow. Diana's future is bright, that's what I'm saying."
Fontana and Andolfo's first issue of Wonder Woman arrives July 12th.
