New York, NY – August 21 – DC Comics, the largest English-language publisher of comics in the world and home to Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, announced today the signing of superstar creator Adam Hughes to an exclusive contract. His first project under the new deal will be All Star Wonder Woman, both as writer and artist.
Frank Miller. Jim Lee. Grant Morrison. Frank Quitely. All stars.
A legendary collection of talent for legendary characters.
In that vein, it is with great honor that DC Comics introduces the latest addition to the very elite list of characters, titles and creators carrying the name “All Star”: All Star Wonder Woman, written and drawn by Adam Hughes.
WONDER WOMAN is the most popular super heroine of all time and a cultural icon. She has served in the Army, renounced her powers at the height of the feminist movement and helped launch Gloria Steinem’s Ms. Magazine. She has been – and continues to be – a trailblazing role model to women and an integral part of the cultural zeitgeist.
ADAM HUGHES: An unparalleled talent and artistic craftsman, Hughes has been a fan-favorite for close to two decades, and brings a level of detail and widescreen mastery that remains striking and unique. Hughes has made a name for himself with runs as interior or cover artist on titles such as Catwoman, Legionnaires, Wonder Woman and Justice League. Especially known for his depiction of Wonder Woman, the choice to bring him aboard as both artist and writer on the series was an easy one to make, according to Dan DiDio, Senior VP – Executive Editor.
“Wonder Woman was the obvious choice when it came time to select the next All-Star title,” said DiDio. “And having an artist of Adam’s caliber and professionalism only cemented my belief that this book had to happen.”
All Star Wonder Woman #1 is slated to debut in the summer, 2007.
