The March issue of Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman looks like it’s going to be fantastic. Not only does it have a story by Heather Nuhfer and Ryan Benjamin, it’s also got one written by James Tynion IV with art by one of my favourite creators in all of comics, Noelle Stevenson. Here’s the solicit, via Comic Vine:
SENSATION COMICS FEATURING WONDER WOMAN #8
Written by James Tynion IV and Heather Nuhfer; Art by Noelle Stevenson and Ryan Benjamin
Cover by Jae Lee
Teenage Diana comes to Man’s World, and discovers a “Wonder World” where she makes new friends. That part’s great, but her Amazon bodyguards are busy tracking her down and scaring everyone she meets! Then, “Sabotage Is in the Stars,” as Wonder Woman aids India’s space program, making it safe for them to launch their new SpaceCrops platform. But when Diana discovers LexCorp caused the problem, she takes matters into her own hands!
It looks like the Tynion/Stevenson story will be the first one, with a teenage Diana and her Amazon bodyguards. Tynion posted this sketch of all of the characters that Stevenson designed for the story, which looks so fun:
All of the creators on this issue are wonderful, but I’ve been a huge fan of Noelle Stevenson for years. I first heard about her when she started her “Broship of the Rings” art, a series of drawings and eventually a short comic that reimagined characters from the Lord of the Rings as modern dudes. Biker chick Eowyn was probably my favourite, though hipster hobbits were a close second. Her career has since exploded from there. Her webcomic, Nimona, wrapped up recently and is being published next year, and she’s part of the amazing team behind Lumberjanes, one of the best comic books on the stands right now. She’s also got a day job at Disney and wrote a story in an upcoming Thor annual. I’m so excited for Noelle Stevenson to draw a Wonder Woman story partly because I love her art and partly because she is exactly the sort of creator that the Big Two needs right now. Stevenson is the future of comics, and while I adore her own original stuff, I hope we get a lot of superhero stories out of her too.
I feel sort of bad talking up Noelle Stevenson when everyone else on the book is super good as well. It’s going to be a great issue all around! She’s just one of my very favourite creators, so I’m super excited. You should definitely pick up the book in March, and the stories should be available digitally before then.
