Originally revealed by DC All Access, Wilson will also be joined by artist Cary Nord in the series, reported Gizmodo.
Together, they will helm “The Just War” storyline, which follows Wonder Woman -- better known as Diana Prince -- as she ventures into war-torn Eastern Europe. There, she finds that not only her ally Steve Trevor has been caught in the crossfire, but that Ares, the God of War, is playing a hand in the carnage, leaving her to question just why he has returned to Earth.
Wilson and Nord’s first Wonder Woman issue is out Nov. 14, beginning with Wonder Woman #58. (sul/kes)
